    I think we have the potential for another good year. The chatter is starting to ramp up on the weather forums and they are leaning that way too. payup

    I was just thinking it was about time for this thread to start! Looking forward to a good winter, although we need to buy some equipment and salt to be totally ready.

    Jp, you pay for skyeye right? I have checked it out a few times this year and I am trying to figure out if it's worth it? They seem to be more accurate than others I see. I am just not sure if it's worth it through the rest of the year. What is your take?

    I use it year round. Good source of information and Rich ( the owner) is pretty accurate. Josh, who posts on there does a fantastic job as well.

    Hey fellas what is a good site to get past total snow accumulations? I can never find one worth a crap! I think I can find stuff on the NOAA's site on occasion but it is a super pain in the ass to navigate! Thanks in advance!

    What rates are you guys running on deicing? Last year I was running about 17 lbs per 1000 square feet with good results. Lots of posts I read push the ton per acre figure. Last year I got beatup on a couple bids because they said my salt was too high.
