    BRIMOW525,

    If it tracks the way they are calling(probably won't
    :rolleyes: ), I may be finished early. If you need some help, let me know and I'll PM you my Cell. I'm in Cecil County, about 45 mins. from central DE.

    Have Fun $$$$$$

    I'm hoping it tracks wrong, and dumps more snow on Northern NJ for me :)!

    skunked

    They are forcasting a 60% chance of 1 to 3 inches expected up here in the Taunton Mass area. Which basically means we will get nothing. I am jealouse of you guys. I am ready for 6 feet anyway. I am also getting bored we need a good storm of at least 6". I sure hope the Farmers Almanac is right. Well there is always February and some of March. :rolleyes:


    :drinkup: there is always a warm fire, a cold Beer, and some good TV to keep the lack of snow off the mind.

    Just got 2" in the last hour and a half. Suppose to get 2-4" of lake effect later tonight. All I can say is Thank God! This will be the 4th time in the last week to plow. A NW wind plus a cold front equals $$$$. Winter is finally here.

    going to miss us, maybe one inch we'll get. This sucks I have been watching this storm since Monday.

    Remember snowflake, you could get all the snow in one week like last year. We are up to 5 plows now for the year and more to come this weekend. With 2 months left of winter (last year I plowed on March 29th) I think we will catch up.
