    The March Nor-Easter being scheduled. I never give up hope till April hits. You still have February to go too, warmer temps can mean bigger snows.

    Here in Staten Island our own resident Groundhog at the SI Zoo has pedicted an early spring. Went to the Airport at 2315 hours last night and was home by 1000 hours this morning. .5" snow then rain and 40 degree temp. It don't look good to me!

    maybe you can start sharpening the lawnmower blades in delaware (which is not the northeast) you guys down there average maybe 1 plowable event in jan than it gets too warm. Winter is far from over infact its only half done. I don't put the plow away until late april we usually get whacked a few times in feb and march and we can get a few good storms in april we got 21" one april 1st. I plowed today before it flipped to rain but there is still plenty of snow on the roads and temps are havering freezing with freezing rain.

    seems as though the guessing was right on with this storm. I had all cleared by 2pm, it changed to ice right after and all was good with the world...we did get a new account from the storm, although he didn't call until we had 1/2" ice on top of the snow and it was like concrete. Got the truck stuck a bit, but all totaled was only a minute hit including driving.

    Here in central new york we have received over 140 inches of snow this year. Some places just north of us (about a half hour) received 81 inches in 72 hours. This winter has been kicking our butts. No place to put it. I will be surprised if the snow isn't still here in June. This is one of our local weather sites.

    CJA1987 so what is De. considered to you because everyone else that walks in this world calls it the northeast, maybe southeast then?

    While here in central Maine, we've just gotten 40" for the winter (half of average for the year). Last night got 2" with just a crust. Not enough to hit the triggers. Just one customer who wants sanding, so all I can do is wait and see if I get any calls today. So far this winter, I've had two full pushes (should be about ten):( .

    Folk lore has it; If you don't get winter in winter, you WILL get winter in Spring!!

    Our local weather guy is big on folk lore. Says it's 90% right.
    Seems to be the case.

    He said when cicadas start chirping there is 90 days to the first frost. Noted the date and said we'll see. 87 days later we had our first frost.

    interesting stuff.

    Spring is a long way off yet. I don't think everybody will get off this easy. Mother nature says pay me now or pay me later. With interest.
