    I heard them talking on the radio the other day, some meteorologist's believe that our weather has gone back into a wet cooler cycle, just it was a much more drastic change than what they had predicted.... now there saying that all this rain will continue to fall as snow just as frequently all winter, last winter we had 34 plow able events i believe i heard a contractor tell me, the last 2 years were 14 and 11... so if this is going to continue, those seasonal's based on 25 plow's... thats gunna hurt

    the way the last 3 years have gone up here, seasonal would be based on an average of 4 plows. typical winters before would be 15 at most
