23.5 was the official measurement for the weekend storm here. We generally get less than a foot for the year.:rolleyes: Haven't seen a city plow since Saturday morning.:mad:

I haven't been called out yet this year, but I guess I'll get to spend my entire 4 days over christmas plowing good old I-29! Hardly seems worth it.

we worked Christmas Eve until 2 a.m.....slept until about 7 a.m., watched the grandsons open gifts, and then went back at it again. we're FINALLY caught up. went up to rural water job we're doing, brought home the 210 case, and the skid steer. first pic is from several weeks ago before ground froze, we were still digging. last pics were from today, getting stuff started, dug out to bring home.


BTW, where's jason lately? he's got his playpen messed up for 9 months, think he'd have a lot of computer time

speaking of Christmas..and little kids...i have to share this story....we were invited over to my brother's house day after Christmas for dinner. my neice, had her 4 year old son there, he was excited for the day, typical 4 year old...misbehaving a touch....she gave him at least 4 "time outs"....only to have him go back to the same behavior once he was released....:laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing: i could see my brother's blood starting to boil, niece reprimanded him one more time, threatened the time out...my brother goes...B.S.!!! with the time out!!!! paddle his ass!!!, my great nephew's eyes got as big as dinner serving plates as he looked at his grandpa...his behavior changed immediately, wasn't 10 mins later he was up on grandpa's lap. who says the old ways don't work?
