Everytime it snows is memorable for us at Perfect Cut Lawncare. Trying to get every commercial and residential property plowed and salted before the work day starts for everyone is always anything but a "walk in the park"There is always something thrown at you that makes you think fast on your feet to still finish the routes on time, from extreme snow drifts to people parking their car right in front of you will your trying to plow a gas station.

Most memorable moments plowing were with my dad starting when I was 8 years old. He was a dealership mechanic and installed all the plows on the trucks. I got to help with that and also got to learn to drive a plow truck for the 1st time at age 8. Big ol F350 with a Fisher plow. I was sitting on his lap of course because I couldn't really reach the pedals but I got to operate the plow. I was hooked on snowplowing at a young age. It's a lot of work and time consuming plowing a dealership lot.

most memorable experience was trying to plow 2 foot of snow with a 7 foot fisher on my dads Dakota first thing in the morning. We received a lot more through the night than was originally expected

One winter morning at breakfast a couple was listening to the radio. They heard the announcer say, "We are going to have 8-10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through." The wife went out and moved her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10-12 inches of snow today, you will need to move your car to the odd-numbered side of the street so the snowplow can get through." So the wife went out and moved her car again. The next week, while they were eating breakfast, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 12-14 inches of snow today and you must park..." Then the power went off! The wife was very upset. With a worried look on her face she said, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street am I supposed to park on?" With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, her husband said, "Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time."

Snow Plow A blonde driving a car became lost in a snowstorm. She didn't panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it." Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. And she explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, do you want to follow me over to Best Buy now?"

Blizzard of 1997. SE PA recieved 36" in one shot. Trucks were useless. I was 14. Dad put me in a cat 953 track loader To move from one property to another not far away. We came across a fire truck Enroute to a call stuck in a snow drift on a main rd. I pushed out the snow drift and cleared enough room for the ladder to pull its way out. Dad was in a single axle dump with an old beat up fink plow. We cleared a path to the next intersection and the ladder was home free. Dad was very proud of me but to be honest. I was scared shitless. I'll always remember that.

My best experience is something I get to relive everytime there is enough snow on the ground to plow. I genuinely like to plow, so it isn't work to me. After the storm and the commercial work is done,, my last driveway is for an old man I used to work with. He's in his 80s and wife passed on, so as you can imagine he gets lonely. He rides along as I plow his roadways and lanes, afterwards even being up for 2 or 3 days straight, I always have to make time to have a drink or two with him lol. The crazy things you can hear and learn from your elders.

My best experience as a snow plow operator was the the storm at the end of the season last year.

I have plowed for 16 years, have seen all kinds of storms, blizzard's, Ice, wet snow, dry snow you name it, I have used Myers plows, and Fisher, they both work well . If you have the right equipment it doesn't really matter. Keep good care of it and it seems to last forever. I take time when plowing not to be rough on the trucks and equipment, employees of mine do the same. Waiting go winter to give us the best, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!! Happy plowing I sure would like to win the V plow ??

My best experience snowplow ing was the year we got triple our average snowfall and every storm was on a Saturday evening so I had 2 days to complete most of my sites. Of course we had our high importance/essential lots but it afforded us the opportunity to focus all of our efforts there, then get to the less important sites later. Snowplow erstwhile dream!

The best experience I had as a snow plow operator was last year. The last storm of the keep me out for over 26 hours straight. Then spent two days cleaning up.

boss stuff please

On 12/11/2014 Rob Herman said:

The blizzard we had 4 or 5 years ago. I was up for 72 hours straight. I saw a lot of things that will probably never happen again. Pulled out a lot of stranded motorists but can say I never had to get pulled out. I learned a lot from that storm. And I will always have my 3 brands of plows..Meyer, Western, and Boss... Thanks
