    Can you believe people were trying to push for disaster relief because we haven't had any snow this winter? That has got to be the silliest thing I have ever heard. I guess some people who were counting on making some money this winter plowing and sanding feel that the lack of cooperation from Mother Nature entitles them to some free money from the government, same as when a hurricane or flood or whatever kicks everyones butt. Newspaper started a poll, I guess the idea got shot down pretty quickly. What a bunch of losers.
    I put a lot of eggs into the winter basket this year, between buying a new spreader and managing my work hours so I could plow, but I don't see where I deserve government money because it didn't snow and I haven't made enough money.

    I'd heard something about this, but couldn't think of where. I'm with you, Dan. I bought a new truck and plow, but that's the way it goes. You take your chances and sometimes you win; sometimes you lose.
