    I thought i heard maybe some snow on 2/2/10? The farmers Almanac says between the 8th and 15th we are looking at a massive storm I'm not sure how credible they are.

    I really hope Febuary will have at least 2-3 good plow events. Its bound to happen, if no let this pass quick and lets start the summer.

    You're right, it usually works out over the years. Unfortunately, the customers have short memories. You know what I mean. ;)

    My state of mind is already thinking spring due to lack of snowfall...
    To be honest, I made better money mowing last year, then plowing this year ...

    well 1" is enough to salt. so i guess that is a positive thing.

    Well depends on the account style. We have some seasonal accounts that we have only pushed 10 times max and some were plowed only 6 times so far xysport

    We also have regular accounts that we have plowed 15 times and salted 23 times!!

    So right now the salting has out weighted the plowing payup

    We have made out well on our seasonal pre-paid contracts payuppayup
