    Thought I'd get a new page going as we will dip below freezing tonight. Snow will be here soon!

    nope I sure didnt! that storm sucked...it was 2" of ice & sleet. shoveling that stuff killed my shoulder. had to use a flat blade shovel to get under it. my plow still wasnt heavy enough to break it up...just skimmed the sleet off the ice.....lots of salt went down, then came back & plowed it all again after the temps came up a little.

    i have a few accounts in saratoga cnty, they got 3"-4" & no ice.

    i really wish we could have one decent storm before the end of the month! Im lost trying to figure out what will happen the rest of the year.

    I remember 02-03 was pretty dry until the xmas storm that dumped 24+ Inches....dont remember the rest of that year tho. is this all due to the strong el nino?

    this winter is so much drier than 2011-2012.

    anyone have any thoughts or predictions?
