    Hello! I was just wondering how business has been for everyone on the forum? So far the plow business has been very good here in NH. So far I have plowed 5 times this year. I just got in this evening from working on my route. I am way ahead this year then I was last year at this time.
    Happy Plowing

    4 Plowable events this year, I lost one customer yesturday though because he bout a tractor with a blade oh well, I still have 22 drives with 2 on call, it was nice having yesturdays storm cause I could take my time and not have to worry about going to school, spent some extra time pushing back piles, hope we get more, its an addiction payup

    Yep, I must admit it is an addiction. I was going to go out last night, but I decided that it would better go out in the day light and take my time pushing back snow banks since I heard that we might get slammed on Tuesday night into Wednesday. Well I am now doing some book keeping.

    I have heard between 2 - 6 inches and then freezing rain after is stops snowing. I currently have 52 driveways, 1 private road and 4 fire hydrants that I voluntary plow for the fire department. It keeps me busy, but it is fun!

    This year has been very good for for us, we have done a lot of Salt & Sanding, because of all the freezing rain, we have this year in December. We also have had 4 plow days. I hope January will keep going the same way. The forecast calls for warming up next week to the 50's. :(

    OK Guys,
    You are making me sick :eek:
    Not one plowable storm yet this year.
    Last week we had some snow but not enough to plow.
    At 3am during the storm we had about 1 3/4" and then it started raining :angry: - Down to a 1/2" by 4am

    Oh well thank God for seasonal contracts.

    6 plow trucks with not one of them dropping plow for snow, two salters that haven't even been loaded up yet. Way behind the last two winters. I have a brand new western v that i'm dying to try out. :cry: So as you guessed it 0 plowable snows and 0 salting!! I keep saying its got to come sooner or later????? :confused:

    One word CRAPPY!! only 8 plowable events, I had that last year before Thanksgiving. Has been way to warm for lakeeffect to kick in much this year, they are predicting a pattern change next weekend though(as I look out the window at it raining and 40 degrees at 7:30 am) :cool:

    We have plowed 12 times so far this year, about average, but we have done a lot more salting and sanding this year. It is snowing here right now enough to go out and some work later on today and tonight,
