Well, we did get snow today... or we are getting snow. So far we got about 5" and it's still coming down. We got done with our run to open things up, and gladly, nothing went wrong. It took us a while, but we are getting it together. I told my brother last night, that last night was like Christmas Eve- We would wake up in the morning, see what "Santa" brought us, and then go play with our new toys:D Anyway, here is a pic of the Ram in our first lot.

Chevy Guy- You can come up and relieve me-we just went to open them up, and shovel small paths in the sidewalks, so we figured we wouldn't need the snowblower-BIG MISTAKE:rolleyes: We got to the residentials, and the sidewalks were all drivted to about 2-2.5 ft:( And guess who got to shovel:scramble Me:nodd Needless to say, I'm a little tired, but I'll gladly go clean up after the storm:D :D

Well Matt, it looks like you are getting a perfect opportunity to test out the new truck and new Blizzard plow. You do realize that we expect a full report of how they both performed as soon as you get to make up that lost sleep... :cash

The bank will be glad to see you, bringing all that cash in!

The Aftermath...

Well, here is the results of the last storm. The trucks and plows held up fine on Sun. and last night. We got out this morning, and at about 5AM, the 80 Chevy blows a brake line. Ok, we still have the Dodge w/Blizzard. At about 7:30, My brother says, " Does the plow seem to be moving slower"? Sure enough, there is a long blue trail of hydro oil:rolleyes: We get back to the shop (I've got to go to school anyway), and it turns out the angle fitting for the wing is leaking from inside the fitting itself. So, my dad and bro refill it with fluid, and leave the wing in. I got back from hockey after school and they tell me somebody hit my truck. I thought he was joking, but he showed me her name and insurance info. I went out to look at my truck, and sure enough, there is a 1.5-2" wide scrape the length of the bumper(nice shiny, chrome, 2" drop syle). It isn't nice and shiny anymore:headwall All they are doing is snickering about how my truck that I am paying for, that my Dad is using to make 100+ per hour with, got hit:evil Needless to say, I am really pi##ed right now. It isn't worth the deductible, so I just have to live with it:fuming Oh well, next time I drive his truck, I won't be so careful:evil :D On a semi-positive note, the van that hit it has no bumper, fender, or working door, and I have a bumper that is ben in a little, and scratched up. :rolleyes:

Those MVP angle cyl are not cheap. I blew one years ago about 200.00 for an new one.
If your truck was hit by someone else shouldnt they have to pay for the bumper.
