    Ok.. Now this is not funny.. As of today, December 27th, there has been snow three times. Each snow brought only 1" or less. I wish nature would quit teasing us and just dump some of the white stuff on us already! All my contracts call for 2" or more so I am not plowing anyone. Geeze.. I guess I will be watching more snow plowing videos on Youtube instead fo actually plowing the snow. So if you have videos in your computer or phone, post them so I have something to do.

    Posted today on Weather Channel. Local weather seems to be agreeing some what. Keep your fingers crossed kiddies

    ... HEAVY LAKE EFFECT SNOW POSSIBLE SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

    LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS WILL DEVELOP SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND PERSIST THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE OVER FAR SOUTHWEST LOWER MICHIGAN INTO NORTHERN INDIANA. IN MICHIGAN THIS INCLUDES BERRIEN... BRANCH AND SAINT JOSEPH COUNTIES... .AND IN INDIANA... SAINT JOSEPH... ELKHART AND NORTHEAST LAPORTE COUNTIES. THESE AREAS MAY RECEIVE IN EXCESS OF 6 INCHES OF SNOW... ACCOMPANIED BY BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW. TRAVEL MAY BECOME DIFFICULT OVER SECTIONS OF INTERSTATES 80 AND 94... AND HIGHWAYS 6... 12... AND 20.

    IN ADDITIONAL TO THE HEAVY LAKE EFFECT SNOW POTENTIAL... VERY COLD WIND CHILL TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. THE COLD AIR... IN COMBINATION WITH THE WINDY CONDITIONS WILL CAUSE WIND CHILLS TO FALL INTO THE TEENS AND SINGLE DIGITS SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT.

    Hoping this all pans out, local 11 o'clock weather says looks like monday should be the snowiest day. Hoping to hit all my clients and maybe pick up few flag downs thru out the day.
     
  10. If any of you guys need help let me know I can send two trucks out there.

    Mostly for the fun. Been sitting here without snow and the craving are getting to me. My plow just sits and cries each day. I don't have any contracts out there just going door to door.

    Monday 6am CST and only about 1 inch dusting so far just west of Laporte here. Talked to my buddy 15 miles to the east and he's got 3 or more inches.

    Might have to follow suit, go for a ride, and do the door to door thing for fun.
