    Sweet wish i was doing same over here on the east coast!:cry: Yeah from reading the advisory the snow is coming at a good time.....at night! It will be easier for it to pile up and the temps will be lower! Hey i saw the weather channel on TV in your area, talking about all the leaves still left on the trees! The dpw should have fun pushing them all back on the lawns:gunsfiring: Well good luck and have fun, sorry if i got a little angry on the other post. (my fault)

    well you may not need salt but id at least hook up your plows. accuweather has the lowest amount indicated on their forecast. but most of thier bloggers indicate 3" of snow. Its supposed to warm back up so i doubt youd lose all your $45k in work

    yeah that was kinda rude, even if you only have a few driveways to plow, thats a few people that count on you to help them out. and having equipment not up to snuff just sucks.

    So I dont have a way with words. Mark and I have been PMing back and worth, I have been trying to get him some work, The comment was more or less based on concern than ********. I was trying to imply that he should be fine because he only has a few driveways. Though Mark and I have never met, we live pretty close and have communicated quite a bit. I can see how that comment can be taken the wrong way so instead look at it in a way of concern. I am definately not an aggressor, I never been in a physical fight and dont plan on it. I never have any intentions to hurt anyone, I am known as the counselor to all my family and friends, so trust me, it just came out wrong or was interpreted the wrong way. Mark, I hope you knew what I meant if you read it! Sorry if I offended you!
