    Looks like the usual gametime forecast. For all their million dollar computers and years of education they still can't forecast more than 24 hrs out. All we can do is be ready to go.

    TOOOO late by then my friend. Every body needs to have equipment trailered to the sites 1 day before a major forecasted storm ....I stipulated that in my contracts. 8'' or no 8" , they pay for it. It's called reserve and provide .

    I cant leave a loader on these properties .

    Heres hoping we all get some snow. Oh and as much as it pains me, good luck to your Pittsburgh Steelers guys. I can't bare the thought of Arizona winning esp. since we smoked them during the regular season.

    the most snow we had here was last wed and that was about 4 inches i'd say 8" plus with this storm hopefully it moves over us slow or better yet it can stall over us that would be better if anyone lives in the harrisburg area like carlisle,gettysburg or hanover areas and needs some help let me know i only have my k5 blazer but it does the job

    I had a 90k-5 , did the job then some . I put 500 lbs. in the back and it was unstoppable.

    Possibly cause of the short wheel base.

    We got our own tractor for this year lol, so all the power to a 50" snowfall lol.

    Seriously though, it may take us longer than something with a big 2 yard bucket but ill just switch over ot the 84" 3/4 yard bucket and go to town if its too much for an 8' push box.

    We need to get clobbered, literally, i need some good income for the late part of the winter since its been nearly dead here so far.

    The eastern most track equals the most snow for us, more west we get a mix, west near pittsburgh and we'd get nothing, so the more east, the better its showing, why do you think its bad because its going east? near the ocean it will pick up more moisture and be worse. I always love drifts too.

    We have a couple places that will need the tractor loader if it drifts, a 12" storm will put 2-8feet in any lanes and corners of some of these sites with lots of buildings ! cant wait.

    Dont listen tv weather mets...they dont have a clue. To far east we get no preciep. The euro, ukemt, candian, gfs, and nam have all come in this afternoon with no preciep from the costal storm. Granted we could gets a preciep zone set-up and get 1-3 or 2-4.....but thats its. This is not going to be the blockbuster we want. sorry
