    Might as well right? Lol

    With the way temps are dropping I could see us getting a "no accumulation" storm or two in late November?

    To be safe we are going to order our salt in Oct this year since stocks are still low.

    Everyone is talking that it's going to be a better(or worse if you don't plow haha) season than average. A repeat of last winter will be real nice!

    All of our jaws are on the floor looking at picture of 5-6 feet of snow . I have to take a look and see how many events we had. Let's hope it's a good season again this year. Nice and cold on the island the past few days but is warming up again.

    Freezing here all day today!

    Cherokee plow still in the shed.

    Last winter had to kick-butt for you "real" plowers, I just have a plow for my driveway and neighbors for barter.

    Here on Long Island the most difficult thing I found was pricing... both sides of the spectrum here (which may be found elsewhere, for some reason I think it's worse here), those who do it on the side, and those that do it full-time to pay the $$$$$ property taxes.

    The on-the-side guys may do a driveway for $45, while the "pros" want $150 for the same one (actual numbers from a family member of mine who switched when the $150 guy who didn't show up a couple times).

    Wish we had some "lake-effecr!" Not sure if there is a lake in Nassua or Suffolk though! Saw a pool along the NSP!!!

    Im still here! Im just in clean up mode at work. Im trying not to get caught like last year with that early snow. I serviced all my equip and am picking up a new to me stainless spreader ( my first electric). Im debating over a mvp3 or just a pro plus with wings (deciding what i wanna spend not a matter of versatility). I hope everyone had a nice summer. This winter came on fast. Happy holidays lets keep this rolling.

    went to my storage place last weekend and got all the snowblowers, ice melt and shovels down here to l.i.

    I am tempted to drive to Buffalo, but wouldn't know what to do if I could even get there!

    I hope that never happens here. Even 2' sucks!

    Can you imagine what the driveway aprons must be like after plows push the street clear? 12' piles?!?!?!
