    Well here in Connecticut the last four out of five years have been above average years, especially last year. This year looks like above also, if it keeps up like the way it been going. Weird isn't it, most of the time the snow comes from you guys first.

    Hey Rob, I remember as a kid playing football with my brothers every Thanskgiving in the snow. It would stay that way all winter! And I also remember the big storms coming thru and watching the news with my Dad and all they would talk about was how much snow the East Coast got from the same system! Now it seems like everything goes North or South of Chicago or it just evaporates in the atmosphere!!! I'm happy for you guys, but I'm ready to jump off of the roof! Ha:realmad:

    it's just a typical chicago winter. lot's of freezing rain and no snow or lot's of 1/2' snow falls and nothing to plow. i think it was 98 or 99 we didn't get one snow fall the entire year. chicago area is the worst place to plow snow!
    salting is a different story though !!!payup payup payup

    God throw's a slow year in every once and a while to weed out the low ballers. It's good for business, keeps the prices up and gets rid of the garbage. payup

    global warming??? we've had more snow in toledo in the past 5 years than in history.... relax its nly a dozen or so days into winter - the jet will change after about mlk day and things will normalize - the nice thing about big warm ups is that they bring wild swings when the cold does set back in - if the nao goes neg like it looks on the long range gfs we will all be happy in late jan

    If u look back at weather patterns, everything goes in cycles. U'll get ur snow sooner or later. After what seems like 10 crappy winters here in MN, we are actually getting an average one!

    I live in mchenry county just NW of chicago. I plowed at least 5 times already. That was a december to remember. You must live south of chicago if you havent seen much snow.
    Wow, tornado warnings yesterday all over with the incredibly mild temps. They are talking snow thursday though.
