    I didn't hook up the plow at all

    Just barely got two inches on the grassy areas and cartops. Most of the drives and lots were warm enough to keep the snow from sticking.

    So I'm glad I didn't waste my time putting the plow back on.

    But we did get to salt a few commercial accounts with all the freezing drizzle we got overnight.

    I just knew that they were gonna be wrong again... Like Ol' Wllie Shakespeare once wrote it "T'was Much Ado about Nothing"

    Sunday i went to where i store my plow and put it back on. I figured i'd rather be safe than sorry.

    The snow stuck to the road and after the town plows came by, it stopped sticking for about half an hour. In backcountry greenwich we ended up with around 1-2" of slush on the roads. This storm was another one that didn't turn out to be what it was supposed to be. It just proved who was ready for another snow event in april.


    I did get to plow one parking lot though because of a possible freeze over.

    Sounds like Long Island got the worst of this one on the East coast. Would not have minded plowing but I was able o get a lot of other work done yesterday as we sat waiting for the snow to collect.

    we got 6" yesturday. Started around 10:30 and we where plowing by 11:30. Nice storm, we did all the coperate centers (oviously) and all the rest of the commercials and all the residentials exept the gravel drives. It's not melting to fast either so looks like we lost a whole week of landscape work becuase of this.
