    From I-70 to I-74, I predict 6 inches of snow for every game the St. Louis Rams manage to win.
    From I-74 North, I predict 6 inches of snow for every game the Chicago Bears manage to win.
    How you like those apples???

    Seems like every time they predict a big winter it turns out to be a bust... at least the last few years at least. I'll let you know in March what the winter will be like.

    I agree

    Not really, but need to..probably start picking away next week. Contracts, for the most part, are done. Equipment wise, nothings been touched...Plus we still need to build an additional salt bin, take delivery of more bulk salt, get some pallets of bagged material, etc, etc :dizzy:

    We've made a good addition to the fleet with a T250 Bobcat and a BOSS 10 pusher. Also picked up a set of pallet forks from snowcrete last night to move our pallets around. Took delivery of 17 pallets of ice melt also.
    Other than regular truck maintenance and a few small repairs I'm ready to roll.

    I've been wanting to make one of these gtg's for a few years now but they seem to always end up on my shift day at work. One of these times I'll make it.
