    these guys got their heads so far up their arses I dont even believe they can predict a forecast 24 hours in advance. It was raining almost all day and the weather reports for the town I was in said "sunny and mild".... need I say more..

    No snow yet! We need another two weeks to finish up jobs were on before it snows. After that it can do whatever it wants!

    Yeah, just seems way too fast this year for some reason. I'm not in the mood yet, been real busy working on finishing up for the season. Everything is ready to roll with the exception of changing fluids on two plows, and some more staking. The funny thing, I just got two signed contracts back in the mail yesterday from September! I love how people heed the 15 day withdrawal notice!

    I know, I still have people that haven't made a decision yet. They are too busy. Funny thing will be when it starts snowing and they call me all frantic I will be... too busy for them.

    Haha, I had two of my subs call me up... "You ready, let's go!". I guess everyone has the itch. I need to get this week in to finish up cleanups then it can snow all it wants.

    There may be a chance of a freeze up Monday night? Maybe salt/ sand for Tuesday AM. I'll keep hoping. This rain sucks.
