    I have heard 1-3" thursday and then again saturday but it will change over to sleet later in the day. It was really nice to get the plow out finally, we only got 2" though but hey its money.

    Love it! Weather reports say 2-4 " by midnight with heavy snow at times. It is 11:30PM and there might be 1/4 inch on the ground from Cedar Lake all the way to Highland, In. At least I can catch up on sleep. Good night.

    Could of used a push broom - would have been faster :redbounce

    Weekend there calling for a mix - but, they keep dropping the temp and it's really a board line by a degree at this time. Hoping for 2 unique storms this weekend!!!

    i'm ready for bed myself. we had just shy of 2" which is the trigger for most of my drives, but if it is going to rain then freeze they are going to appreciate it being clear. i've been doing the lot at our salon for years but other than that every drive I have is new this year since it's the first year i've really tried to get more. after doing them 3 times this week the time it takes has cut down dramaticaly now that i'm figuring out the tricks for each. only took me 2 hours from when I left home til I got back. time to drum up some more buisness.

    Here's a question. I've decided to pick up some drives this year - a little extra payup doesn't hurt. However, what do you do when/if your truck breaks down or for some reason you can't plow that day? What's the back up plan?????

    I have a few friends that plow that would help me out and i'm here for them as well. we try to help each other out. the one friend helped me fix my plow this week and I gave him a drive that I was caled on when I was at work and I knew he was free.
