    good. even as if 12 noon the forecast is still very vague, as they really dont know what amount will fall.

    it seems that a bliz warning would be realistic, since it will be very windy amd COOOOLLLLLLLLDDDDDDD

    Blizzard warning that will not be fun to be in looks like i might just have to wait this storm out until Sunday. From what i heard from Channel 8 at 12:45 they are saying that the storm is gonna be a hit for CT. So lets hope and it looks like they will be right this time.

    I like the look of this!!!

    Well I had tickets to a concert in Boston Sat night any bets if it will get postponed?

    I have question how many times would you guys plow a driveway with a 12" storm like this?

    I was thinking 2 times or 3.....

    How do you guys handle big storms like this? I plan on focusing most of my time on the commercial accounts not letting it get too deep even if i have to push several times.My biggest issue is with the residential accounts.I highly doubt the public works will be rushing to clear the side roads.

    Do you do a quick push say in the middle of the storm then come back at the end of the storm to cleanup and clear out the huge plowline that will be left from the city crews?
    I think waiting till its completly over to plow might be too much especially if there is heavy drifting.In the past i have explained that in heavy storms i have to come a couple times during the storm to stay cought up but still always manage get complaints the next day because the town plow finally got to the road and plowed them back in and i didnt come quick enough... now they are late for work etc etc.
