    We are getting a huge snow storm 6 inches on the ground 8 inches tonight 6 inches tomorrow 8 inches on monday night. We have the heavy wet snow on the ground right now. I'm not opening my mouth about meyer plows because i did the other day saying how good they are and low and behold my pump went today i couldn't believe it.
    Just wondering if anyone else is getting this storm besides Acorn and Brunswick Concrete i know they are.

    Who ordered the rain??? A really good sized storm misses us and went north, now the radar shows rain heading this way. Maybe I should just get the U edge so I can push some water at least.. :realmad: Oh well, if no storm than :drinkup: First round is on me tonight... :D You hear that Mother Nature??? I am going to have a good time with or without you... So get your A$$ up and get us a real storm.....

    Oh well, worth a try,,, I hear that she reads the post sometimes..:rolleyes:

    OffRoadPlow,

    Not sure were you are in Michigan, but they are also calling for rain in my area, then a change to snow tonight, along with more snow for the next two days. Need another month like Jan. to be happy for the year. Good luck.

    JButch,,, yeah it changes by the hour.. Started Sat with the "6" Sunday night more on Tue" then just wend down from there taking off 2" every time I checked it. By this morning it was "Rain tonight changing to snow after midnight, with the possible accum." Now they are saying that we might get some accum. on Tue, but it will be on a think layer of Ice.. fun.. :rolleyes: So who knows, and you got ring on the head MulchM, just trying to push her buttons and get a real storm in here. She has a lot to prove before I believe in her powers.. :D (trying again).. I know two years ago we got over 30" in 24 hours and caught everyone off guard, they even closed the company (not plow company) I worked for at 1pm the day it started. Could not even see the back of cars at some residences.. I want to see it again, that’s all, some restore to power of a true Michigan Winter.... The reason I live here... I will just sit back now and watch the attempt that will be made to give us some winter weather, while I stripped down my primary plow for maint. and paint, we should get something,,,, I figure we should some really big snow when I start the process of setting the lexan back on to the frame... Good luck to all of us......

    Same here for us,calling for all this snow,and now just rain,ice pellets and flurries.Probably the same Colorado low you guys are getting.

    I just blew a motor in my main International salt truck,so I bet it's gonna be lots of freezing rain.

    Anyone got a spare DT466 ?
