    I got up today at 1 am. to measure how much snow we got, and we got less than an inch! I really wanted to go plowing. The no good weather men said 1-3 inches, which either means 4 or 5 or nothing at all. We got nothing. Only having driveways sucks! 2'' triggers! :gunsfiring: lol. Well, at least I get to go back to bed! Later:sleeping:

    We last dropped a plow on Dec 17th ! Another way below average year of snow fall.
    Hard to slide a newer plow truck past the Wife when it does not snow all season long.

    That's life!!!

    My weather man said my area would get 8 to 12 inches last sunday night and we never even got a dusting. How do they mess up that bad.

    dissapointment for me is when I wake up and there actually is snow.

    When they call for snow and I wake up and there isn't any, Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.

    Only sad part about it is then I have to keep waking up to make sure it doesn't start to snow....

    Disappointed

    Hey Crazy Mike, did you not get the flash freeze this morning ? We were salting earlier this a.m..
    Temps dropped from plus 3 celcius to minus 5 celcius in about 3 hours. Just blowing snow after that though.

    Snow storm coming our way this Friday from Colorado. Talking 10 - 15 cms.

    Mike

    Well, so far this year, we've had a ton of snow. And we've been out plowing like crazy, just like you new hampshire guys. But, being my first year, everytime we get to go out and make some money helps out.

    Flash freeze?? LOL! It was a waste of time. Nothing froze...it would have had to continue raining for that to have happened. Weathermen kill me!

    I managed to drop a few loads of salt up north but Woodbridge and Toronto, forgetaboutit!

    You guys have been getting missed a lot this year down in Racine. Most of the heavy snow in Wisconsin keeps going to the western part of the state. Yes, they say thursday it's supposed to snow, we'll see! Have a good night.

    I am in Akron we don't get the stuff you guys north of us get. All the stuff I plow is in Akron or East and West of it. If it's 2 inches or so he just throws salt and does the cleanup himself. All of the major events have gone north of us, west of us or south of us.
