I enjoy reading all the stories, but mine is a little different. There's nothing like working 14-15 hours straight and you blow a line and fitting in 10-degree weather in the middle of the night.
I was plowing a short road in front of one of the properties I do when I decided to go over that little bit more that you know you shouldn't do, but you try anyway. Everyone knows what I'm talking about. Then, at the end of the push, when you raise up the plow and fluid follows it, you know you're in trouble.
Then you call a friend and competitor and they just happen to have that extra fitting and line that you need. It's about all working together getting all the work done on schedule. I can remember the couple times I've stopped by guys who were broke down and wondering if they were going to fix and finish up on time. I always stop and pay it forward now to help out. That's what we do in Western PA.
I have owned WESTERN plows and salters for years now and always will until I retire from this fun and stressful job that we all know and love.
Let it snow, my friends. Let it snow!
