    It's allways sad to see the end of winter because it doesn't snow enough in my area and I enjoy plowing. But how did everyone do this winter? Make your goals? Any changes for next season?

    2012-2013 winter

    its been a good winter here, started off in mid novemeber thats was the first time i had an event in novemeber since 2008, two storms right after x-mas was aliitle tough, we all kno about the lack of sleep lol. January was good but not a slammer, by no means. February was crazy busy with ice control, 9 days in a row with small events, then we had one plowable storm 6.1 in , then more ice control events to round out the month. The last snow was a nic suprise my largest storm of the season 7in, i started really early just because i just wanted to hav some fun. All of us sno fighters are the hero's of snow Thumbs Up

    Had a great year. I can only think of 2 storms that were tough. The last one we had dumped 16-20 inches of cement on us, and the other was Nemo, which wasn't bad because it was powder, there was just so damn much of it.

    The next month is forecasted to be colder than normal in the Northeast, so our winter may not be over. I'm always kind of happy when it's over but constantly wish for one more storm. It's finally alot less painlful at the apartment complexes because they finally remembered how to park before the snow. I do love plowing, and always say I'm gonna take lots of pictures and never end up doing it. It's the last winter for the '99 Chevy as a primary truck, so its a little sad.

    Only 5times here so far. Same as last year. 4years ago I was sick of snow. Every other day were going. So the last two years have yet to equal what four years ago was for snow totals and plow able events. So it was ok, but could be better.

    We had a decent year but it's time for it to go and it's time to make some steady money. Tired of waiting on something to happen.

    Decent year, next year we will have more equipment to speed things up and allow us to bid more properties. I can't wait for it to go away at this point so we can get a jump on Spring work.

    It's been an above-average winter for me, but it doesn't go down in the record books. The best part is that it's not over! 2"-5" expected tonight. I'll be up and moving by 3AM at the latest depending on what it's doing. This might be our last event for the year, but who knows. I'm just happy I actually have some decent work to bill out for March. I don't think I've plowed anything in March for about 3 or 4 years, and so far this month I've got a few billable plows in and a bunch of salting!

    Yeah we are suppose to get 2-4 inches tomorrow so maybe we will have some more billable march work also. This crappy wheather is putting a later start on our spring work thats for sure. But hopefully we can make some money tomorrow.

    It's not over in NE PA. We had 1-3 inches on Saturday, and are expecting 2-6 today and tonight. There also has been some rumblings of a noreaster on Sunday or Monday of next week.. Last year I had one account that was only serviced once. This year its been serviced eight times.So this year has been pretty good. Now if I can only get paid.:)
