    Been out twice this winter for about 10 inches total. From past years records I should have been out at least 10 times.

    I have been out over 35 times and I have salted just as many. Received 5 more inches today. Since Jan 10th to March 8th over 115 inches has fallen. It has been a rough 2 months of winter. Nothing in November and December. It is time to re-write my plowing contracts and raise the cost.

    We usually only average 27" of snow per year on 5-7 plowable events. So far this year we have had 34" and 7 + plowable events and plenty of sand and salt applications. It has been a very good year for me.payup payup payup

    1 event that was 12 inches of wet heavy stuff. 24 hour's for December

    1 event over a 3 day period in Jan. got 4 days out of it including clean-ups.

    Record month in Feb. averaged 4 days a week salting and plowing. Out 16 times for over 170 hours.

    March so far have been out 3 times for 31 1/2 hours.

    Seasonal contracts may have made out good in Nov-Jan but they ate their shorts in Feb.
