    I pretty much think winter is done in my area. the storm missed us i guess, cause it was 60 degrees yesterday and its sunny now. i think ive finally gotten into the mindset its almost spring, and time to put the plows away.

    Well MDB I would agree that it seems like spring.

    I am not putting the plows away yet. I wait until May 1 before I do that. I remember a few good April snow storms catching people off guard.

    After a virtually snowless December, we got a bunch of snow over the New Year's weekend, then waited a couple weeks, got about the same amount over a 5-day stretch in mid-January, then pushed again on Feb 4. Since then we've had...............................................nothing plowable. Lots of "fizzles" that start out looking like a real snowfall and taper off to nothing, but no plowable events.

    I'm starting to think we got our winter's allotment those two January snow events, and that's it for another season. This winter is all :confused: anyway, getting colder temps now in March that I think I've seen all winter..................

    Up until last weekend I had made more money salting than pushing snow.......But down this far south a no pushable snow winter is not unheard of so anything for me is better than nutten!

    SURPRISE....SURPRISE.....SURPRISE...

    It is snowing......

    suppose to get 3" tonight. I know it may not sound like a
    big deal but have not had anything here since Dec. 27, and March snows are very unusual


    hope it keeps coming.

    Can you say "AMEN"

    Well, another fizzle today. Looked like it might be a real snowfall this morning, I was out in the 5-ton most of the day and got back to.........................mud. :( I sure hope "Old Man Winter" strikes again before the season is out but I'm starting to wonder...........

    Sonjaab - sounds like a good find on the NOS Triumph parts. Fingers crossed I will be bringing the HD home soon, I'm going to a bike show this weekend myself in Barrie. Plan on taking the HD down to Poughkeepsie this fall.............

    Last night was the 5th night in a row for us. Over 17 inches since 2:00 am Saturday morning. It just keeps coming. We are at 98 inches now for the year, 25 inches over our normal annual snowfall. This will turn out to be probably one of the top 5 all time winters for total snow. Sure doesnt seem like it with all the warm weather separating the snow events !

    I agree with Mick,


    I live about 3 hours east of him and have only had 2 plowable events this year.

    well I am up to 15 plows now for the year. We got the same here as Pinisland1 got. The only difference is the season total. Ours is 97" and we are at 47.9". Where tom is, their average is like 75" and they have had 98.2":confused:

    Of course I have plowed as much as them just less each time.

    I'm with Mick,


    My anual average is 80", last year was 96" (great year), 7 years ago 144"(outstanding year-also record setter).

    This year, 25.8"

    On the good side, it was only 60 today.

    P.S. major drought problem real soon, if we don't see some kind of weather.
