    Indianapolis is the city of freezing rain, ice, rain to light snow or light snow now...we don't get any plowable events. Just event after event for walkway work and lot salting......it is good for us, but not good for our subs!

    I've been here for about 15 years now and I still can't get used to it. I'm originally from up by Lake Michigan and a snow is a foot or so. I'm not having any luck getting my customers to go with a 1/4" trigger, but I keep trying. Thank God I'm a turf guy!!

    I'm with you. This could a plow able event, the forecast looks better every time I look at it. I think I've forgotten how to plow. Just like riding a bike right?

    The thing is, its not just Chris Wright! Every forecast I saw was very close. It is amazing that they can miss so badly. We were hearing 1-2", maybe 3" in spots. I woke up at 4am and it was RAINING and 36 degrees! Is there a problem with the software that they use or what? I'm sure they all use a similar system. It just seems that the last few years they have not been able to be accurate. I not even going to bother looking anymore. I will look at accuweather.com and forecast myself!

    You know, it's not that I want it to snow....we are on maintenance agreements so get paid either way - no snow and $$$ is great, but you put so much time into planning, getting the guys all ready to go, load the trucks and attach the plow....then nothing! I got up at 1 am, let the guys in and then at 2:30 took off the plow and went back to bed!

    im going to have to work on the maintenance agreements for next year. I got into the game too late this year to get that done.

    So if it doesnt snow or Ice no money either way.
