    I think we had a terrible year for snow amounts? I only plowed a total of about 14 inches, where usually we get an average of about 50 or more. I feel this clipper comming Wed. might be our last chance? unless a storm sneaks in on us?

    Any way I'm ready for nice weather so i can start making money again instead of looking at the weather every day too only hope a storm will come to be able too make a few dollars to keep my head above water.

    It was nice talking with all of you and I hope you have a great spring, summer, and fall and hope to talk again next year when the snow flies?

    Take care and good luck!

    Mak.

    We only got two weeks left of winter, but who knows with March in New England. I'll keep my eyes open for another push.

    I think I'm about 30" for the year...seems like it was constant snow squalls this past weekend n dhtye just stopped yesterday afternoon. That said, I'm normally about 120" a year so this is a pretty lousy year for me too.

    Its only March 6th though and cold as all hell (7 below this morning, but 40's by the weekend), we could still get a couple storms, but I wouldn't count on anything major yet...probably another couple plowable events, but no blizzards.

    I'd say spring cleanup is around the corner.

    I couldn't find data on yearly averages, but I found these.

    2003-2004 66 inches in Danvers
    2004-2005 122.5 inches in Danvers

    I also seem to remember one winter in the late 1990s where we were well over 100"

    I'd say we did poorly as well. A good winter around here brings about 60 or so inches of snowfall. The first recorded 1" of snow this season occurred last week.

    06 we where off...

    I just did some searching and for 2006 we where off(-) 52.4" in snowfall from our average in the MWV.
    So far this year we are off approx 72" as of this date.
    We have had plenty of cold weather just no moisture...

    The clipper missed us completly. It is going to warm up for next week. The whole state of Mass. is well below the average snow fall? I feel winter is over except for a posible sneak attack? So be it!

    I just ensured that we will get hammered for the rest of the year. I took the plow off my tractor, cleaned it up, and put it away for the season. Let it snow!

    Good Idea...

    Last time I think we all where either starting our lawn mowers or washing our cars and trucks...Maybe time to try that again...

    The mad man on accu weather is starting too get us going again about a possible storm riding up the coast next weekend? I'm ready for spring but I guess I could take one more storm seeing it was a some what of a snowless winter for us in Mass. I wouldn't bet on it though?

    I'll be removing anything snow/winter-related from my truck today, and I'll give it a good wax job tomorrow. That ought to do it.

    You'll do fine. 4x2 is perfectly suitable for driving in rain. ;)
