    If youre talking about all the new posts on here youre right! Ive been trying to keep up with all the new posts like how i do in the winter. Theres alot of talk about buying plows and getting stuff set up. Hard to believe we've got a good 3 months even before a threat of snow. I think a bunch of us had enough of this heat.

    Heat and no rain. I don't landscape but a few friends do and they say they could almost do leaf cleanup. In some places it's so dry the leaves are falling off.

    I'm one of those in seach of a plow, but so far the local classifieds and ebay arn't being very nice to me. At 17 I don't quite have the funds to shell out to buy a brand new 8'2" boss v, so used is the only way I can go.

    I am the boss, but I figured if I am going to spend the money, why not get the plow I want the first time. I would be plowing mostly large open areas and I know a V will be helpful. I have found like 4 boss v's, but they are all over on the east coast or far north, so I would spend between 300 and 500 dollars just to drive out there and get it, plus driving like 12 hrs one way in my pickup on the freeway doesn't sound like fun.

    yeah my attention has shifted to this site now. i cant wait to be done with mowing! Im starting to get my truck cleaned up and all the little projects done on it now.

    If only it were 20* now we would have so much snow it would be crazy!

    We would probably be about 2-3ft under here right now if it was 20 degrees.

    I hope it continues too, but only if I am plowing with my truck. If I still have to plow with the atv, I will never have a chance to get off it.

    Its been kinda cold the past few days. Today it didn't get above 64*. The heat has not been to bad but the lack of rain has been tough.

    Well i hear ya. the temps will start to cool down next week which will be really nice, im tired of this humid heat. Just think, if it were 20* out, we would have over 25"s of snow dumped!
