    Most of the snow here in boston have been around 3" more or less.Have been very good for plowing comercial accounts and then sanding them reall money making storms.Wish they would be bigger so i could put my backhoe to work. How is every one else making out so far this season?

    December was excellent here in central Mi. A lot of snowfalls thru-out the month with many of them 2-4". Most of our commercial accounts only require 1" to plow so any thing more just requires more effort. If the rest of the winter stays on course like Dec., the winter of 00-01 will be our most profitable one in a long time.:)

    Hey cat, if your looking for some work for your backhoe e-mail me at davarch@gis.net. I may have some work for it if you don't need it. The work I have is mostly in the somerville, cambridge, chelsea, area. That offer goes out to anyone looking for work in this area (can't get enough subs most times). BTW, your right about these 3" storms, they are good money makers. I would just like about 8-10 a year!!
