    My self-imposed deadline to be ready was Nov.1st. :rolleyes: The plow is all ready to go. I still have to get the truck serviced and detailed, and have a new hub assembly installed on Tues. I'm taking ALL next week to try to get everything done and ready to roll. :nod:

    Where in southern ma are you?
    They are calling for up to an inch of slush here, I will mount both plows tommrrow afternoon before the expected change over. Just in case, ive got an elderly lady who has alredy called me twice because she thinks we will get enough to plow. I doubt it will be anything plowable, if we get any kind of slush, i will scrape my own drive, thats about it.

    Ima ready if we get any. Hey Chris don't say nay yet, the squirrely looking weather guy on channel 7 says we are borderline 1-4 here in Randolph.

    You lucky guys, I'm in a bad mood. First they said the sunapee area in NH could get around 4 inches of snow.

    Now they are saying flurries. :realmad: :angry: :mad:

    Also you know what sucks the worst? Lebanon, NH is just north of me and has had snow. And right below me is Keene, and they got snow. :cry: WHEN DO I GET SNOW?

    I'm in the 2-4" section too, but I hope we don't get it. I'm still working on fall cleanups and don't have my salt yet and haven't staked yet. This is the only time I'm praying for rain!! :cry:

    It was not ecpected to turn to snow until later today...... but the radar shows the rain/snow line just south of me. Problem is no precip is hitting the ground yet. When it does it should be snow. Iam going to gas up and put the plows on right now. Not expecting to much, but whenever accumlation is possible iam redy.

    :drinkup: They are calling for 2-4 inches in my area again. There's supposed to be only a narrow band of good accumalation of snow. the rest will be a slushy 1 - 2 inches.

    Still have a ton of leaf jobs and the leaf boxes on our trucks but my plows are ready to go. We are still waiting on a few parts for the spreader :rolleyes: .I don't think accumulating snow will reach this far down anyways so I'm not too concerned.The rain has been mixing with sleet all morning though.

    :cry: I hate weather channels. One hour they say snow, next hour it's cloudy they say. :cry: APPARENTLY, Western, NH will not be getting any snow. (We didn't even get a dusting when you guys in MA got one)... and southern NH :realmad:
