    That ground hog has a better brain then the weather folks here.

    Dec. 10th called for HUGE snow event Dec/15th. Dec/14th 11-17 inches in forecast, Dec 15th same. End of day Dec/16th got 5.1 inches counting snow on 15th and 16th. Last 10 days been talking about a developing storm. Calling for 4-8" 3 days before storm, then a little more, then a little less, then at news Thursday night still saying 4" to 8". Was supposed to start around 7pm, then watched 11pm news still calling for 4" to 8" then, all we got was 1/2" maybe and I got my 06 D-max broken into and my 08 suburban broken into. I don't know who I'd like to kill first weather guys or theives!

    what hurts the most was that it was 34 degrees the whole time it was raining here we were so close to a huge event:realmad:

    When i was a kid winters were cold,long and the ground had snow cover for months on end. Its totally different now. If you are a snow contractor you must make every dime you can on every event to make it worth while. Sanding,clearing sidewalks & stairs, scraping, site relocation and removal, exposing hydrants & catch basin grates, you name it. Thats my take on it anyway.

    I hope we all get good snow for the next 6 weeks

    Incidentally.... "6 more weeks of winter" and "6 weeks until spring" are the same thing!
