    We are supposed to get a noreaster tonight and tomorrow with 8-10-12 plus inches. Not sure yet. As Martha would say "And that's a good thing" Need the
    money. Starving on my Blizzard plow repairs. Just call me the Maytag man of snow plows. :)

    We'll be plowing for sure, gonna be way too cold to even let an inch sit around, it would turn to shear ice in a couple days.

    That will be an issue i have to face. The commercial accounts no doubt plow.. but my residential accounts mostly have a 2.5 or three inch trigger.If we only get two inches it surely isnt gonna melt with the temps forecasted.

    I say plow you res any way and deal with them complaining about you plow below your trigger or listen to them when the 2 inches dos not melt for a week and it turn into a Ice Skating rink and they fall on there arss then cry because you did not plow.... Better safe than sorry is the way I look at it
