    the fact is all the weather forecasters are flipping out over this. they have no clue what is going to happen. ive heard anywhere from 2 inches to a foot. im going to wait till 11 and see what the new data says.

    I just finished plowing this one, our 2 to 4" forcast turned into 8 1/2" on the ground. When I looked at the radar, this storm looked a lot like a Nor'easter, but it split and part went to sea. I was real nervous for a while, I thought we were getting another President's Day storm.

    Very easy 9". No problems at all with this storm.

    It is only the 1st week of March, two or three weeks of "winter weather" still possible.

    Got 3-4" north of Boston, nice light dry snow, great for plowing and snowblowing. The route went very quickly.. Could use a couple more like this one before the season ends.

    I had to plow in 2 of the last 6 Aprils, so that's certainly not out of the question. Got 2" yesterday. 1-2" forecast for Monday\Tuesday, and there are hints of a decent event later in the week again. So much for getting my winter to do list done :eek: Gonna try to winterize the lawn equipment early next week at least. :eek:

    Anyone remember the May 9th snowstorm? I think it was around 1976... That was a couple years before I started plowing, but i remember being very surprised. I'm never surprised by late storms anymore... March can be a very busy month.

    Thursday we got 3 1/2" here at home. 20 miles south of here, which is where most of our plowing is, we got 1/2" of snow with 1/4" of ice on top of it.

    Last Monday Accuweather was saying that Thursday was going to be the only sunny day all week...

    We crushed the seasonal limits on our contracts during the presidents day storm, everything now is extra above and beyond the contract. I have never plowed so much powder, I thought for sure this last event would be heavy and wet, but just 8' of powder.
    When in mystic are you, I have been working on High Street the last two weeks. I am at 293 High street, stop by and say hi if you like, or call me at 860-608-1842 and we can get a coffee at Bess Eaten or the like.
