That's sounds pretty sweet to run. We use the 6r loader to move snow. Now it is raining, at least it is melting the snow.

We haven't put plows on yet, but we're ready. Salt and anti skid has been stockpiled, spreaders have been put on some of the trucks. We're ready when it comes. Thoughts and prayers go out to the farmers battling this weather though.

Thanks deadeye. The township and county didn't salt because they are saving it for later.

We got our first storm here in PA last night. About 3 inches between 3:30 pm Thursday night to 8:00 am Friday morning. Our crews were out all night putting material down on the roads. I spent quite a good amount of time in the loader. This storm was really minor compared to what we typically get later on in the year, but this was also the earliest we've had snow in several years here.

Geez, yeah the weather is ridiculous this year. Maybe it won't snow as much or as long this winter.
