    I have my truck pulled apart and rebulding some electrical items on it..... I do not believe that snow will be here soon.

    On weatherbug.com it shows snow starting late Friday night thru Monday, partly cloudy Tuesday then snow on Wednesday. Snow is 60% friday night, and 40 % on Saturday. This is info for Coal Valley, IL. I just wish it would do something. Maybe I should head down south, then it would guarantee to snow here while I am gone. Seriously, we need snow.

    I had my plow and spreader on....but end up taking it off, hoping it would snow as soon as I finished taking it off...but still no snow...just lighter truck...See you guys around town..hopefully it will snow, so we won't have to go down south just to see what it looks like.:eek:

    I'm washing my truck Tomorrow, it is supposed to be 38 degrees here in Moline and sunny. Might as well get one more wash and wax before it never snows.

    It isn't gonna snow

    Its supposed to warm up a little in the next couple days. I think I'm gonna pull the plow off the truck tomorrow and then surely it'll snow 2 feet on Saturday.
    If its not gonna snow this winter then it just as well warm up, I'm tired of paying Mid American Energy.

    Its got to snow sometime

    Usually around the first of Dec. if I get a hair cut it turns cold and I freeze my butt trying to finnish things up before winter. Got another cut today and its just getting cold enough for the lake to catch ice.

    Every one in Buffaloo must have gone to the barber on the same day................

    Here is a thought guys. Get some seasonal accounts and you will be wishing it doesn't snow. Money for nothin and your chicks for free. Just like a rock star.

    If I had *all* seasonal accounts then I'd wish it wouldn't snow. Right now all our accounts are "per push", and all I want is for it *to* snow. If I had some of each I'd just be hopelessly conflicted and confused and have to spend all my money on a therapist.... :( :) :confused:

    Hey YARDWORKS

    Some of us are sub contractors and we depend on snow to make our money....

    We are small and doing it for the income.... and do not have the equipment to have our own seasonal contracts.

    So thanks for thinking of us......

    And then there's those of us that need the money AND actually enjoy plowing.

    I washed and waxed my truck...now it looks real shiny. Maybe it will snow now, probably just rain though....here is a picture of shiny truck.

    Hey Kerry-it is sleeting out now in Coal Valley. Doesn't sleet turn to snow eventually? Maybe we'll be able to throw some salt. I would wash my truck but you know what would happen to it.

    :D
