    WOW who would have thonk it, we are getting snow may be again tonight. 5" to 7" they say I'll weight in tell tuesday afternnon to see about that one. I might yet see a profit this year and I hope the crying can now stop up in N.Y. mainly the upper part thats why I do not see your point to conplain when you get snows like that We may get 12" a year if we are lucky!!!! I remeber the 70' and 80's when we use to have a 12" on the ground from late NOV tell early to mid march!!!!! Aint seen 12" of total snow fall in 3 years conbined!!!! and you get 12 FEET!!!!:angry:

    Were due for a blizzard :yow!: I'm with you, I don't remember the last time we got 12" or more. The blizzard of 1972 was nice, Think we had a big storm New years day 1999? All our storms have been 2-5", It's nice to plow, but sure would be cool to have a storm that shut every thing down like back in the 70's.

    They are also saying this is going to be very wet and heavy snow. Those of you who get any more then 5 inches, get ready to work your trucks.

    Gavins how much snow has fallen down there? Last night our news said down by I-80 they were predicting 12"+. I do a bunch of plowing along I-39.

    Just got in from round one. I have to finish a report for my "real job" then head back out to open things back up. It's coming down pretty good. I'd guess that there is about 4" down now, with drifts as much as 2' so far.

    I wish it was wet, the snow we getting is very dry and fluffy, flying all over the place. Not doing any sidewalks till it's all over. Just blows back in after you have cleared it.

    The snow here is dry and fluffy..what a pain to push, it just blows everywhere.. as of right now strong winds and heavy snow.. Hope to get everyone out working by 1:00 pm.. We have to wait till it stops snowing just because of the wind,when we do plow it looks like we did nothing and have to go back and do it again..going back = loss profits..:nod:

    I just got back from between I-88 and I-80 on I-39, it is real bad there. LOTS of drifting, visability less than 1/8 mile. At times it is almost white out conditions.
