    well been watching the radar here at work and they are calling for up to ten inches in the south and north west of the city. CHICAGO WILL BE buried. Our op is in full swing and the guys are pumped to get out and play! Tomorrow should be fun they are talking snow by noon and lots of ice during the early morning commute tomorrow. Any one else getting ready?

    Weather man says 2-4 one minute and 6-10 the next in Central Illinois who knows. Hoping to play this year also! Bought a Skid Steer this year for side jobs. We havn't had much snow in the last few years so I sold my plows (debating on buying a new one for my truck) but right now I just have the skid steer. I can remember when there was always good snow when I was a kid.

    I expect to get buried with snow. I had to take the plow off my blazer for my wife to use while her car gets fixed. I had it on and all ready for some fun in the snow. Hope to get some soon.

    Just heard Traci Buttler on AM890 radio .... She's saying most of the weather folks and all of the models have this storm pegged at 2-3" per hour starting at midnight through to noon Fri and that it is coming up as alarge as the '78/79 storm which burried the area!

    If it turns out like 78/79 ............. huge and beyound.

    That would equate to over 2 feet of snow in 12 hours. Everyone else I've talked to hasn't said anything like that. Who knows. I got my radio on 890 right now. I'd like to hear that forecast.

    I just heard that she actually predicted the snowfall to be around 12" or so.

    Don't forst that the equivelant of 12" can easily fall in a 12 hour period. However, since the ground temperature is still kinda warm I doubt much will stick. We may get 6" of wet heavy snow to play with but I doubt it will get worse than that. But what do I know. It's not like I'm a meteorologist or anything:D

    No, but I'm willing to bet that most of us plowers could predict the weather just as good as these meteorologist.:p Not like we don't eat, sleep, and breath weather during the winter.:D

    purplebou We're getting slammed with last minute people asking for snow removal for tonight. I've been quoting 3-4 times the amount since I don't want to take on any more accounts. The sad part about it..............THEY'RE WILLING TO PAY IT!!!!!!!!!!! payup
