    Well people looks like the season is coming to an end. 62 degrees here today and after all the snow we've had its almost all gone. I'll be popping in now and then but looks like I'll be going to lawn site. Thanks to everyone on this site. I've met some great people like John Allen, and Taconic Maint. at their picnic, thanks for the advice and patriotism Pelican, all of you have been great. Cant wait for November to be coming up again. I'll be in a few times a week though. Good luck everyone.

    I would leave the equipment on for at least 2 more weeks. Nothing like being caught with your pants down when that last late storm comes.

    We started to get ready for spring. Got some work to get done. The plows and spreader will remain out and ready to work until April though. Just like I get ready early I wait till I am sure it is over.

    I can remember years past where it was 60 degrees at 12 pm, but at 1 am it was 25, and snowing to beat the band. It isn't over till the over night lows are above 32. However the pavement temps will warm up sharply this week, resulting in slower snow accumulation.

    funny hoiw weather and terrain fit the local area's. We still have tons of snow on the gorund. Got up to 58 here, about 75 miles north of Wallingford. Although we're very high and I think higher than most of western CT. The roads are loaded with puddles from melt down. I look out from this keyboard and see 11 acres of field still with 5 or so inches, solid.

    C'mon Tucker, we're talking about us lowlanders. You're way up in the mountains you'll be plowing til July, then spend August getting the equip ready for the Sept snow. I think a bunch of Plowsiters would love to come visit if we knew you were providing oxygen tanks for us. "D

    Today high was 61 degrees. Really a beautiful day. I was out all day cleaning out the shed. It was a big mess but now it is clean and ready for spring.

    It does feels like winter is over but I think not. I remember a few years ago in April that it was 70 degrees on one day, and we got a foot of snow the next day. That was a whacky weather. :D

    We even got a plowable event in May a few years ago too. That was weird too.

    Funny you should say that Stephen, I was going to jump in and say I don't put the plows away until May to be safe. We've had late storms here where others have had to dig out their equipment and I just hook and book!

    I walked down to my stream today with no coat, in the valley it was chilly but in the sun, nice & toasty. The stream sure is running high and muddy, if we get rain there might be flooding in places.

    ProSno, glad to hear a little Redneck rubbed off on ya!:drinkup:

    Glad to see I was not the only one doing a little early "spring" cleaning.

    Everything is running high here because of the quick melt the last few days. I am nice and high but a few customers are pretty worried.

    Its supposed to be close to 50 all week up here. Thats a heat wave compared to what we have been having. Like Mick said it seems like we always get a late storm in Maine, makes spring seem a little far away!!

    Just backed the scoot out of the garage for a couple of days of riding. It's a little muddy on the back roads but the mains are cleaining up fine.

    I agree with gordyo though I still have about 6" in the fields with luck and a little late snow we'll get a few more miles on the sled inbetween the sunshine.

    I'm sure Howard will provide the Oxygen tanks for you sea level guys who can't cope with the thin air. You'll probably need them if you go out and take a trip to Aspen for the Bikini ski that goes till the slopes close.

    I usually don't have to worry about finding my plow if it snow's early or late. I'm one of those crazy guys who hangs his in June and July just to get the THINK SNOW blood flowing again.

    We had 75 degrees in Denver over the weekend, Yet... we a looking at the mother of all storms (according to TV)for the Denver and front range area. Up to 3 ft in my customer area possible, 16-20" almost assured. I have pics of plowing on Memorial day in '97.
    I never put the plows up until June 10th.
    YeeHaa... Maybe a good winter yet.:p
