Default Just finished 15 hours of plowing! What a day

I started plowing at 6 this morining and I am just getting in. What a long day! We only got about 5 inches but it was heavy,wet and then it rained and froze again. I have been going nuts with out plowing this winter as this is the first storm since October!! I have some more cleaning up to do tomorrow with the snowblower. I will post some pictures of that. I forgot the camera at home haha

Anyone else go out plowing today?

Pfffttt... We had 2" of snow a few weeks ago that melted the following day.


Currently the sirens are blaring an evacuation warning because we are expecting UP TO three freaking inches of snow through tomorrow night.

OK, there aren't any sirens, but people are freaking out anyway. Retards.

i would not mind seeing some snow and it is hard to believe that the only time i went out this year was just before halloween.

i must admit being completely done for the year and without the snow i am enjoying the extended lanscapers holiday and my only concern is i don't get too fat and lazy come time to work again.

We had 20cm yesterday, and we're getting 20cm today.

Basically when I finished, everything I had done was covered in snow again, I decided to go home and rest... Couldn't sleep.

I haven't slept, I left my house at 3pm yesterday. I am exhausted, I lost my voice, I have the shakes, and I'm dizzy.

I had a helper, but now I'm looking for a third & fourth to tackle today.

I'm angry, and I'm overwhelmed. F' SNOW!
