    Snow plowing has been on my customers minds the last 2 weeks. Everyone keeps asking if I'm ready for snow. Not like I should be tired of mowing question but AM I ready for this winter. Alot of them say we're due for a good one. I still think it is too early to tell, but if you go with weather patterns, the last time it was hot and dry during the summer was 95. That winter we got pounded. Time will tell.

    Contracts are out, and I am getting the trucks ready.

    I usually have everything in place for Nov. 1st.

    It may not snow until late December around here, but I always use the 1st of November as the drop dead date.

    It hasn't failed me yet.

    I'm ready, just hope we get more snow this year. Last year had one big snow in Dec and that was about it. I think Nate down in Ohio had more than we did.

    BTW, nice board. First time here.

    Welcome to Plowsite, rtm!:waving:

    The western states were the only ones busy last season, the rest of us sat here and twiddled our thumbs. We all hope this one will be better!

    Maybe this is a bad time to jab at someone. However "reddy" is "ready". An "i" should be "I"

    I say this for two reasons. On plowsite.com I think we should still be professional, after all as discussed on a thread that I cannot find from last year this is a public forum.

    Secondly I hope that one (not picking on anyone specific) is more professional in writing for business.

    This may be a pet peeve of mine (and others) and I by no means say I am a perfect speller. However I type slow and then spend the time to proofread (as Chuck said). It is very hard for me to read a post with mispelled or misplaced words. I am not saying I have never had the same mistakes but I see a trend in certain members where it seems like posting quickly is more important then posting correctly.

    CT, I think this is the thread you're referring to:http://plowsite.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4740

    On that note, I've been to a forum where they have spell check in operation on their reply page, can it be added here? I keep a dictionary here at the keyboard to help, but occassionally one gets by. I remember Chuck posting a place to download spellcheck, but I'm not that good on this thing to set it up.

    I will inquire with Chuck about it. Even with a dictionary a spellcheck would catch mistake that one may not see. I know they get by me occassionally.

    Yes that is the right thread. What did you search for? I missed it somehow.

    Try this spell checker site, it's free and works pretty well. After you download and install the program, an icon well be installed on your tool bar. To check the spelling and grammar of your post, left click the icon and it automatically checks your spelling/grammar and offers suggestions for misspelled words or corrections for run on sentences. The nice thing about this program is that you can use it on any message board, email messages or word documents.

    Try it and see what you think. If you don't like it, just delete the program.

    I actually had a pretty decent 2000/2001 season, I hope the same or better comes this year.

    And yes, I'm quite ready!
