Here we go again! i'm starting to get seriously impatient waiting for snow. So, instead of staring out the window i decided to build yet another snow themed moc! This is a common sight around town after a snow storm. The dump trucks that the town uses for construction during the summer, are refitted with snow plows and salters in the winter to tackle anything mother nature can throw at us. Oh, and my parts that i ordered should be arriving at my door this week, so i'll be building lots of cool stuff when i get them. The beard for santa is in that order so fear not Santa's little helper contest judges! That cotton beard in my diorama will hopefully be gone before the deadline.
About this creation
close up of the plow pushing the snow
Here is the side of the plow truck.
And the front of the truck.
And the back of the truck. The white bricks in the back of the truck is supposed to be road salt. I originally wanted to use white studs but i don't have anywhere near enough of them, so i used bricks instead :)
You can borrow some of our snow if you want. I absolutely hate driving in it. I guess I wouldn't, though, if our plows worked as well as yours does here! Great job and I like the effects of the snow bunching up.
Nice MOC! I know exactly what David is talking about. I live in southern Maryland, about 40 miles south of DC. I have 30+ inches sitting on top of a picnic table in my back yard! Send that truck to my house.
If only you have built some more snow plows, maybe those runways woulda' been clear! This is a truly amazing, seasonally appropriate, and personally meaningful MOC. Love it!

3. Timing is everything
This MOC really hit home on #3. East Coast Time Friday 2am I woke up in the Czech Republic, flew to Prague, then Frankfurt, then Charlotte. Czech had snow, England had so much snow that my flight from Frankfurt to the US was delayed 3 hours. Snow in the NE US closed all airports north of Charlotte, (my destination), so all flights to NY, PA, MD, CT, etc, were diverted to Charlotte. By the time I got to my hotel Sat nite I had been awake and traveling for 49 hours.
