    supposed to snow tonight:eek:
    the big plow for the big tractor isn't here yet (wasn't buying it til the contract was signed, won't be here til next friday)
    2 days ago, this was all supposed to be rain., now it's snow. Last year, late october we got 8 inches!!!
    I had to unload all the pasture stuff, load up all the snow stuff and remember how it all hooks up. Even had to hook the loaders back on the tractors, barely remembered how to do it.

    AND
    I have 2 newbies to train.
    Should be a fun night. :help:

    Good Luck!!! We're here in Colorado too and watching the weather close...calling for 3 to 7 inches tomorrow. Snowed like mad here last week but nothing stuck, the temps look a little cooler this time.

    Glad I'm not in your shoes, I still have a lot of jobs to bid on. And a few workers to train.

    don't worry nothing will end up sticking. It was 75 degrees today. :dizzy: I wish it would stick but it has to cool down to get anything on the cement. :cry:

    I am, heck I have a mount on my truck but don't have anything else yet. I wish it would snow here but I'm certainly not ready for any of it to stick, no truck blade and our atv plow is somewhere in our shed, not exactly sure where.

    4:20am, get up, check outside
    4:27am, realize I just dreamed that I got up at 4:20, actually get up this time, check outside, nothing, not even wet.
    5:30am, can't sleep now, check outside, still zippo.
    arrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhh :cry:


    I wish it would snow a little bit, just so I could use it for training.

    went and ran the route about 8am, just really starting to snow, nothing sticking anywhere, by the time I got all the way north, it was sticking on the grass and rooftops, but nothing else.
    snowing good now at my house, but nothing sticking.
    windy and COLD (i miss summer already. :jester: )

    I'll go back out in a few hours.
