    Going to take the same approach-weather guesser's are all over the place and haven't been right about the weather since Thursday on this storm. Snowin' and blowin' in Ansonia right now-about an inch or so on the ground of new powder-hard to tell though.

    I've never seen so many guys with pickup trucks and blades just driving around in circles today, hardly any of them had salters either so I don't know what they were doing? We got a whopping 3/4" here. going out overnight to salt a few. not much else to do.

    I just got a call from a customer asking me to plow thier driveway (steep hill) they wanted to grab some food. So because they are the best (residential) payer's I took care of them. Took a look at a few commerical accounts made a few passes on drifts but I am definately going out at 3am and hitting all commercial accounts plow back all drifts and salt.
