    We haven't had a snowy winter for 6 years. Maybe it's OUR turn now.

    Forcasters can tell you what its going to do next week, let alone 3-4 months away.

    I think you meant to say "can't" but you are absolutely right. I don't care how many millions of dollars in weather equipment any organization has, nobody can predict weather months in advance.

    No one is predicting the weather here, those are only # from past years.

    Yep you are right thats what I meant.

    Whats funny is I didn't think are winter last year was too bad but I make alot off the little storms. Alot of guys here have high trigger amounts.

    Hey guys, Havent been around for a while but now since you know what season is approaching..... :nod: .....Haha, anyway dlcs.....I guess me and you be on the same track, But all the 1" and under snowfalls made me a TON of money in salting. This year I will also be buying a v-box for my dump truck.
    Bulk salt is also cheaper which could be very profitable. Anyone else here have 2 trucks with spreaders? Thanks guys

    I agree, last season wasnt that bad. 1" triggers made the difference.
    I was out 16 times plowing last season full pushes, that included multiple trips for the 2 big storms we got.
    If it was 2 inch triggers I probally would have been half of that.
