    Well, I thought I'd start a thread for those of us in Delaware, Maryland & Northern Virginia so we could bi#@% about the weather too!

    Got a call Tuesday to be ready to plow Friday & Saturday, then it was moved to Sunday & Monday, now it looks like I'm gonna leave the plow in the yard. No ice yet either, but of course it's very early in the season for us.

    Saw a few people pushing lots last week with that 3/4" event we had, I don't know what kind of trigger they have in their contracts, but if they're getting paid for it, more power to them!

    Yes, it sounds much more promising this morning, It's amazing how many times they've changed the forecast for this one storm!

    Ok, today was a bust. What about this coming Tuesday? Forecasters are talking about maybe some decent accumulation. We work for VDOT in the Gainesville area.

    Today was VERY disappointing!:realmad: We were in the 3"-6" range and got an inch. I salted so heavy yesterday that I screwed myself out of payup today...everything melted right away! LOL The one contract we have is hilly and I had some extra material left so we just put it down. I wouldn't do that again!

    Oh well there's always the Tuesday/Wednesday storm.

    They are just teasing now saying maybe "measurable" snowfall. They are also saying there could be rain/ice mixed. They really don't know much except were getting something it seems like.
    Doin' the snow dance:yow!:

    Accuweather is saying snow rain for us 2.4 inches to be exact, probably just rain.
