Give the plows some room!

Recommended Posts

Random guy

Many times when plowing it amazes me how poeple will not move out of the way. I truly don't think a full understanding of the power the snow coming of the plow has.

A few days ago I was running errands around the lake and met a V-plow. Now I plow and work with these guys everyday and have a good understanding of what goes on from the drivers seat of a V-plow, although this time I thought the plow was going to the left but he went to the right and I was caught in the path of the flume.

The truck below started the day with good windshield, full grill, all the lights (including corner markers and blinkers), four matching tires and did not leak antifreeze.

It finished the day with the bottom of the windsheild layed flat against the dash, grill destroyed, lights removed from the front, bent mirrors, leaking raditor, bent fender, destoyed wipers and wiper motor, and the gas tank ripped of the auger in the back of the truck. This all happened in a second from soft, fluffy, harmless snow coming of a V-plow.

So the next time you meet a V-plow give them a little room. wink.gif

I thought the unwritten rule was, when 2 cars are headed at eachother stay to the right. That's what us city folk do anyways smile.gif

Well when you live and work within the boundaries of the triangle stuff happens. I know it does to me when I just visit on the weekends.

These guys are experiencing prolonged exposure. laugh.gif

Good to see cookie monster survived.

Heck, a few dozen rolls of duct tape and a couple auger extensions and she's back in action!!!!

It doesn't quite have the character of Foster's busted windshield tho. That smudged imprint of Foster's face in the cracked glass gave it a special little touch. grin.gif

      starft you off.... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69066000 http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0537011.pdf

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
