    Not trying to jinx anything, but we are not ready for a Nov snow, but I guess I will have to cut back my deer hunting this weekend and work on getting ready for snow! Everyone else in the same boat?

    I had a few of my subs call today wanting to know what is was going to d this weekend so I told them to call me Monday & I would let them know. I am not going by anything the weather men say this year, but surely they can't miss as much as they did last year.

    Well...

    I was thinking of putting a pool together for the first snow and depth. But I may be behind there. Anyways I'm ready. You know last year we rolled out on 12/5 with @4". This could be a plow able event.

    I'm thinking we aren't going to get much. They keep downgrading it. I hope there wrong, but I am not going to my plow on until the last minute.

    We started off yesterday morning here in Central Illinois with a 30% chance. As the weekend has wore on, we ahve seen the forecast change for the better and as of 30 minutes ago NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory with upto 5" possible by tomorrow evening.

    A bit of interesting info from weather underground about the month of November.

    As is quite typical... the first accumulating snowfall of the season
    came this November. It waited until the very last day as a low
    pressure system brought a mix of rain and snow to central Indiana.
    Officially... 0.5 inches of snow was measured on the 30th at the
    Indianapolis International Airport. This made the monthly total also
    0.5 inches... compared to a normal for November of 1.3 inches. This
    was the 11th November in a row with below normal snowfall. The last
    time November was above normal for snow was back in 1997 when 5.8
    inches fell. The snowiest November on record was in 1932 when 9.8
    inches were recorded.

    OK... I know how to turn all this rain to snow. We'll meet at the circle and do a night long snow dance, naked of course. Trust me this will work.

    No, really, has anyone plowed here in central Indiana yet. I had a customer call and ask me to clear a drift from their lot but I don't count that.

    I usually plow in Muncie as a sub, where I haven't plowed yet, but I have one account in Hartford City on my own. I plowed it a couple sunday backs, we had about an inch and a half of wet snow, but I went ahead and hit it anyways. Probably would have melted later that day, but I wanted to check the plow out:) There were a couple guys out doing other fast food restaurants and the hospital.
