Lanark snow removal

In these tough economic times everyone is looking to reduce expenses as we try to weather the storm, so to speak. Up here in the frozen north, one of the major winter expenses is snow removal, so our community has cut back to just one plow,
snow removal
and has also gone to a more economical salt spreader.

  2. I think the state of Rhode Island, USA, is going to be going this route soon ... the state's running a big budget deficit

  3. Ken - Sadly I think Rhode Island has plenty of company in that regard. We've left a right mess for our kids and grandkids to clean up, that's for sure.

  4. Dear Canajun:

    I just spent a week in the hospital as a result of snow removal. It was Christmas morning, and I gave Leslie a nice new shovel to dig out the driveway. Then everything went black. When I woke up in the emergency room, I had a bump on my head and a snow shovel sticking out of my ass.

    Fondest regards,

  6. Can you send him over to the UK as many of our counties are running out of grit.

  7. bikerted - Been following your weather on the news. Don't envy you - it's bad enough over here where most people actually know how to drive in those conditions. But the kids seem to be enjoying the time off school, the sledding, etc.
