That's funny, I was thinking the same thing when I read that. It was like the secret code was cracked. Sometimes it seems as though he would lump the metro into his Northwoods text. Now if I can figure out what the northern half of the upper midwest is. Based on NWS's response to you last week I'm also trying to figure out what part of the state the metro is in. I believe they said central in response to you but it seems like every time they say central in a forecast its usually north of us.

NWS central MN is from far north metro through St. Cloud to Brainerd. Usually closer to Brainerd than the metro.

NOW what's going on??

The 12:48 NWS hazardous weather outlook update doesn't even mention snow tomorrow night.

Monday it said moderate amounts across Central MN, earlier today it said light accumulations, now it doesn't even mention snow, yet my local area is a 70% snow likely for tomorrow night.

I suppose it's a wait and see if the %'s drop this afternoon.....

We filled up about four weeks ago. (We have tanks at our shop so everyone fills up when they come in) I guess we should have waited for it to actually snow though.

LwnmwrMan22: Hopefully they're focused on windchills or something. They didn't mention the chance of snow for sunday either. A fluffy 1 or so inches shouldn't be hazardous I hope.

Is it just me, or have gas prices jumped since the socialist's inauguration... I filled all mine when it was 2.89 and they're still full. All dressed up and nowhere to go...

Matt, there's a possibility my 8x16 trailer will be for sale come spring. It's a decked out continental cargo 7k. If I sell it though it's going to be in the $4500 neighborhood. All depends if I buy the 30' stealth I'm lusting after LOL.

Get ready..... it's starting......

Got the first check today where the customer decided to cut my amount paid.

Flat monthly account for $525. They paid $131.25. Apparently they decided I only worked 1/4 of what I maybe should have worked for January?

It's the same account that I moved the snow piles for a couple of weeks ago. That invoice was paid in full. It's also the same account that last Thursday I drove to downtown Minneapolis to move the other side of the snow pile and another area of snow after the management called and said they forgot to tell me they needed other snow moved. I haven't charged for that yet.

That's interesting. Have you called them yet? If they are really trying to pull something it now makes sense they screwed around so long signing up.

Make sure the next time it snows, you only plow and salt 1/4 of the lot (preferably the 1/4 furthest from the building). Make sure you only shovel 1/4 of the sidewalk as well (the long way, so they only have a foot of the 4' wide walk to walk on).

On my monthly accounts, I invoice the first of the month and payment is due at the end of the month. This way I'm fronting as little as possible.

Received an email from accts. pay. and she said she will check into it.

This winter blows! Its almost as bad as last year! At least last year we had some measurable snow in January and Feb but its not looking good for this year. We miss every single storm. I'm just plain out fed up! Thought we had a chance of getting 1-3 tomorrow night and friday but now they are saying its going to track north of Hwy 200...just as every other one has! Its not like i don't have other things I can do...but I'm just not motivated to them right now...im suppose to be busy as he;l moving snow. What happened to the good old days? This going out 2 times a month isnt cutting it. Geez...I just want to punch a hole in a wall right now! ok thats my vent for the day. guess ill go shampoo the carpets in the house now beings theres nothing else to do.

I did that last week. Fun was had by all.

You brought up a good point. I'm getting all stressed out that I should be getting equipment and other things ready for Spring. If it snowed I would care less and everything would be fine come Spring.

Ian from Fox 9 said @ 5:15 that snowfall amount totals by Friday am would be minimal but that 1"-1.5" was probably across the metro. LOL- I'd give my left nut to drop the blade on a 1" snow as I'm about to check myself into the mental hospital if my wife gives me one more thing to do while she is at "WORK". LOL
