    With a high of 67* F today, and really only rain in the forecast, I'm about ready to throw in the towel for the season. At least I got to plow 3x, paid for most of the cost of my plow. I guess I might as well clean up the plow and put it away for storage :cry::cry:.

    I don't think we'll get any more plowable snow for the rest of this "winter." What do you guys think?

    (I'm trying reverse psycology- anyone who has been on this forum for a few years knows this actually "worked" two seasons ago when I posted the same thing...snowed like 24" here about a week after posting- let's hope the same thing happens this year!:D:nod:)

    This is only the beginning of January and this is the Northeast. Anything can happen. It gets very warm, and brutally cold. February can be a big month for snow. It's still early yet so keep your chins up.

    I'm glad for a little break. We have had about 35" of snow here in Pittsfield, and I plowed eight times so far this season. We will get more snow...

    Yeah according to the Mad Man, it's looking promising thus far. But lets not get our hopes up just yet..........

    I agree! And the warm weather melted a lot of my stacks so will be nice to have places to push the snow again!
