    I don't know about you guys, but I think we're going to get more snow than 1-3". Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but we're so close to this one it's hard to believe it's not going to cold enough! What do you think? :nod: :nod: :nod:
     
  2. Well, if you do get it, send it our way would ya :waving:

    It's all one the front. If the jet stream moves a tad that 12" in WI could push south and bingo - it's pay day. On the other hand last year we got on last push in early January and that was it for the season....... :-(

    Accuweather says 2-5 and so does NOAA. But I'm talking at the border. I have that feeling too. Maybe it's because we haven't seen anything decent since January. Even local guy on ABC 7 said possible 2-5 by border. My hopes is the low pressure tracks 100 miles furthur south and the cold front comes sooner.:nod:

    Snow Picasso,

    You had to say Grand & River Rd. Next time I'm getting Judes I'll stop in and say hello! lol I almost went there tonight. I grew up at 25th & Irving. Call this # 847-678-0440. It's Celli Trucking & I know there renting out spaces. Ask for Carlo. He's the owner. Anyway, there pretty much at Manhiem & Irving. Maybe they can help you out. Did you salt tonight? Just got back. We had a good sleet for awhile then pretty much turned to rain. Almost feel guilty! Rather be safe than sorry! Let me know if it works out for you. Chris

    Chris (Snow Picasso),

    Thanks a ton for the number. I'll have to owe you then. I give them a call tomorrow. Im gonna need a temporary place for a couple of months while I look for a small factory, yard or both together in the SP/FP area to purchase. I dont want to have to deal with this getting booted out and sh*t again. I checked out my major accounts and most were busy tonight with traffic so they never got Icy. Me and my buddy decided not to go out tonight. Hopefully tomorrow night is a different story. For some reason you guys in St. Charles, the weather is always different, its like your miles and miles away when your not, its weird. By the way, whats the name of your company? Thanks again for the #. PM me sometime or email me newlooklandscp@aol.com Know anyone who needs a Vbox, I got a Hi-way Super P for sale that I dont need. So so sick of looking at it. Lol.

    Ken

    Looking at the radar I'm thinking we are not going to see much other than ice and slush. The jet stream has established itself in a slight northerly direction and picked up speed. WI on the other hand looks like they will be nailed.

    Maybe it will change again tonight.
