    I am from Middletown. Are you ever totally ready for the first snow fall? I would like to see some flurries in the forecast, that way we can get some slow pokes to sign contracts. Most of the equipment is ready to go, need a couple of more employees, will be getting some more salt next week, and still have to stake properties.

    Money!!!!!!!!

    Do you guys have a minimum charge for residential driveways??
    Do you have a charge per plow? or dependent upon accumalation? (i.e- $35 initial plow up to 6" and than if you have to come back the second or third time a reduced price) let me know how ya charge

    Could you be more specific? If we were going to get dumped on by a large storm, say b/w 8-18 of snow, when would you start to plow? at the end of the storm? after a few inches??

    Thanks for the input

    Can't wait till the end of an 8" storm need to plow with the storm would start out at 4" do route and return just keep going till done. I don't have commercial lots to worry about.
    But yet again for a third year I will not be plowing do to my broken ankle from 06 I just don't want to heel. Just had an 8th procedure done hopefully this will take care of the problem.

    Good luck to all this winter and be safe.
