Good Luck and remember! There's no Business like Snow Business! Yee- hah!!

    Are you sure? We havent had a plowable snow since mid jan. Not one plow in december, feb, or march. What ever happend to the old chicago weather. We used to get tons of snow. Now, nothing. Looks like lots of warm weather on the horizen.

    Ultimate, you need to lower your triggers bud. I was out 2 times this month and 3 times in Feb. Lets see jan was 6 or 7 callouts and Dec we had 2. Plus Nov was 1. 1" triggers are sweet and you get the same as pushin 3". Been a good year for me.

    I took my plow up to our shop in Wisconsin so now it will snow LOL. Last time I put it on at an 1" got in the house and it stoped. I hope this will help it snow one more time. You guys owe me if it does.

    Actually, you owe us from when you put the plow on early and killed that other storm. I just hope that we get something.
    I think I finally got the bugs out of my new used truck. It didn't make it all night on the last two storms. Would like to give it one more shakedown run. Although, I have been planning for the arrival of spring and warmer weather.

    I'll have to agree with you on that one. They have already posted the roads ( and as far as I know they have unposted them). We are almost back to work for the summer thing. As far as I'm concerned, Winter was over at the end of January! Now I'm hoping for a good spring so I can make some $^*$$% money!

    T-man, I salted those events! Im not a big fan of plowing only 1 inch of snow. Just doesnt feel right when salt does the job. My trigger is 2 inches.

    Ultimate, I agree on pushing 1" but it was usually when temps were ?able and salt may not get it done for 7am completion times. These accounts are black and wet or nothing. No accumulation is acceptable. So you get a push and salt.

    Yeah, that's doubtful. It was absolutely beautiful today, high was like 77 or something like that.

    Perfect weather!

    Well, for plowers, in the high 20's and snowing is perfect, but you know what I mean! :D
