    Seems like we could use our own area for discussion. Peoria, Bloomington, Champaign, Decatur, Danville.

    I'm in the Farmer City area. Only two plows, but a bunch of ice. Better than nothing.

    A friend of mine in Champaign is sad as he tells me that they have not done much and he does not do ice. Bummer.

    if you weren't so far away I would say come over here and do some sub work for me. We've been out on 18 separate events (including ice) this year! Love the work but need a break.

    family

    I have family in CR and come there every few weeks if possible. Maybe next year or this year I could take a truck and leave it, so I could plow when I am there....

    Since I started it I'll add... 1-2" forcasted. 4-5" actual. Works for me. Was out for almost 24 hrs straight. So far this year only four plows but alot of salt runs. Not a fantastic year but i'm not complaining.

    just a little

    we had 3/4 to 1" mabey, only did a few resies on the bluff that get drifted and few lots. I dont do any salting so not much for me today. Light dusting going on now, don't expect to do anything tonight, so i decided I'll pray to snow gods and i took the plow off when i got of work, it usually works :D

    glad you got enough to do something. I could of done handfull of the drivies this morning, but it was so borderline, and with tommrows 40's temps, it wasn't worth it for me.

    We got about a half an inch at most nothing to do at all around here, just waiting for the next one to come hopefully soon. I have been driving the wifes car around needed a break from driving with the plow on all the time its nice to have a little comfort sometimes.

    He wants our salt. That's funny. If it was not for the salt runs we would not have had Christmas this year. I can not get anymore either. Call Gunther salt in St. Louis.

    Not much today a little over the magic 1" trigger for the commercial sites. It stunk though as no snow at 6:30 am went to get ready for church. Come out of the shower and there was a 1/2" . Packed up and left so that I could get a church customer done before 9 am. Then plowed the grocery and the Dollar General with a car every 5 sec. Tonight went to the car lot and there was a car in the middle of the lot and the place to push snow was very tight. That's the way it goes.

    Sounds like we are in for a mess south of I-70. That is 75 miles away, boo.
