    It looks like us buckeyes could get some messy weather.
    Here there saying frezzing rain and 1" tonight and then 2-4" tomrrow during the day. I've said it in the past were take what we can get. but Frezzing rain is never fun.

    I'm sure Young Pup and then guys sown south are ready.
    Best of luck & happy Plowing

    Every time I see the forecast map it's changed. I hope the snow stays snow. I hate freezing rain!

    Boy I tell you leave the computer and the tv for a couple of hours and the whole forecast changes. I went to put gas in the truck and ran my Mom to the store and gassed up her car. Come back and we have a winter weather advisory tonight and a winter storm watch for tomm. Yep I am about ready. Just got done loading the bagged salt up for tonight. Need to go back out and hook up the spreader and I will be set. Then it will be time for a nap later on, hopefully that will happen.

    Be safe out there tonight and Thursday.

    The last thing that we need is freezing rain to go with the snow.

    Just got back in from salting. Coming down steady here. Before I went out the forecast was changing by the minute. When I left I heard we could get 3-5 inches. Updates from local stations coming up in a couple of minutes. The freezing line keeps flucuating back and forth here. It is a heavy snow that is for sure.Well, it is now up to 4-6 inches now.

    Its going right around us right at moment. I dont think they know whats its going to do. Accuweather's saying 2" today. Noaa.com saying 1-3" today,. The weather.com is saying 2-4" today and 2-4" tonight purplebou :) :salute:

    I'm hopeing the NWS is right about that one. I've been watching the radar and it looks like it should be closeing around on us, so we should start to see something I hope.

    Well keep us updated on where its snowing and stuff. i'm going to go rest up.

    Ron, never heard back fron you on the Salt when I was out , snow plow money or anything after I went out of my way to give you 2 great accounts, stopped during a storm to give you a plow and have gotten not a dime in return or a phone calls. Do you treat all of your customers like this as well? I dont see how you sayt in buisness.:realmad:
