    well you know if you put it on you wont need it, so leave it off lol.

    I had a big bid go in literally yesterday and i'm stressing that they're going to go with their last contractor on a quick decision due to this little storm

    Ill leave it off till the last minute, been trying to change over to snow here all morning heavy wet flakes with rain right now, I would think if the north wind stays all day into night we might see a sooner change over

    If we get what the weather channel says it looks more like a salt event then a plow event to me but we shall see if we get any snow or ice at all.
