    It drives me crazy I've been doing this for 18 yrs and still every one I know has to call me to tell me its gonna snow.

    I know and I'm trying to get some sleep before it does so leave me alone.

    Anyone else has this problem?

    i get alot of texts asking how bad are the roads? before I even get on them. little annoying but i rarely get any sleep in front of a storm, hard to sleep when you know your about to get called in.

    That's true but if I had one of those I would no longer be able to use the excuse "I need both hands to plow" to get of the phone ASAP? :D

    Sometimes I call the guy I sub for since I'm way up north, and he's way down south when It's starts to snow to see how things are looking. He can't get quite annoyed...LOL

    But sometimes I feel I get called a little to late, depending on when the storm hits, and believe me, I know when the snow is comming.

    Sometimes I feel that my lots would get serviced much better If I was the one that told myself when to go out. He had it that way last year, but I've been waiting for phone calls this year....cause I know I'm always ready for it.

    by being young my mom and grandma like to call me as soon as they get up when its snowing. First thing they say is "are you out plowing" really pisses me off at the time they do it but when I look back on it now I just have to laugh!

    I just flip the phone to speakerphone, and then I don't have to worry about it. I don't mind the phone calls, gives me something to do other than listen to the radio.

    Why can't you plow, salt and talk on the phone at the same time? :dizzy:

    Nothing like a good challenge in the middle of the night, right?

    The best call all night that I get throughout the night during a snowstorm that's annoying.. "What's that lot look like over there?" - duh.. snow covered
