thought I was ready but apparently the plow truck thought better .
Night before the snow no wipers so traced it to the wiper motor 30 mile drive to town to get parts and have wipers again.
Then yesterday snow is falling as I head the 30 miles into town to get some of that fun money that comes when it snows,stop for coffee and the truck would not start back up .
One jump start later and back at the house I pull the alternator off and head 30 miles back to the part store again to get a new one.
So yes I was ready and no the truck was not ready.
lesson learned here?
Do not leave your plow truck sit all year,drive it some times just to check for things going wrong.
