    Cold air is in place, {last week temps in 70's} chances are looking very good
    for developing coastal low that could have an exploding potential
    {major dumpage}

    It finally feels like winter now! looks like a nice clipper coming wednesday to knock the cobb-webs off the equipment.

    ARE YOU READY??!!!

    I'm sorry but they are in limited supply and we need some for us. However seeing as we just had a storm 2 days ago maybe we will allow this one to come down to you first, then pick up some more moisture, before swinging back up to us. We are just so happy to be in a position to help you.

    Sorry East Coast guys. I jinxed the whole damned snow thing by putting my plow on the truck today. Just couldn't help myself. Sorry! I'll make sure to take it off and wait until it starts to snow on Saturday so I don't jinx that one too!

    Pray for some snow fellas!! It's looking good so far for the new plow vehicles maiden voyage. Hey PlowVA, I see you're plowing with a Tahoe too, how do you like it? I've been plowing with a Dodge Ramcharger for the past 5 years, and stepped up to a Tahoe this year. :bluebounc payup

    Derrick, just put the plow on in November. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Maybe tomorrow. Let's get back to each other with the results.

    The forecasters who cried wolf...

    Remember the story of the boy who cried wolf????
    I do not believe ANYTHING the forecast says about tomorrow never mind 4 days in advance. I'll believe it when I see it. Forcasters are in the media. And the media hypes up everything. I stay prepared and when it happens I am ready to go.

    PLEASE let it snow!

    I need to justify some of the contracts that folks have been so kind as to have signed.

    I'd also like to see if the new plows actually work or just look pretty sitting in the drive. Tired of hooking them up just to chase the dogs around the yard.

    Derrick, Had some fun with the plow today. Did 5 lots over four hours. We got 2 inches out of nowwhere. Just kind of hit us. Took me a few minutes to get used to the new setup, and it was only 2 inches, but I think it went very well. Did you get a chance to use yours?
