    Well last night they said:realmad: we should get about 1-2 inches of snow. I guess they didn't take math class either because we ended up with 6-8 inches.

    That is why we should be able to tell the customer it will be $50.00 to clear your drive, and then charge $100.00. :D

    Where you really expecting them to be acurate?! lol I get at 3AM most of the winter just in case. They called for trace to 4 (like that's a forecast). We got maybe 1 by my house but I just got a call from a customer that said he THINKS we have 3 inches can I come check.

    I love it when my weather man is wrong in that diresction. I hate when they say 2-4 inches and it ends up being 1-1.9 inches

    I have to divide the weathermans prediction by 60% for an accurate accumulation. They ALWAYS get it wrong.

    The forecast for today was partly cloudy and 36 but I have an inch of snow on the ground right now.

    For the last 3 nights in a row there was like a 30-40% chance of snow showers. Ive had to plow every night so far.

    This is like the never ending snowstorm.

    Same forecast until tuesday.

    It snows an inch. Plow, salt, walks, cleanup. A few hours later, repeat. repeat repeat.

    I wish it would just drop 8 inches and be done for a couple weeks.

    Procut1 you must be seasonal as well. Those kind of snows are the best per push snows! Rack up 5-6 of those and your good for the month.

    GV thats why the "EXPERTS" say you should mix your contracts 50/50 or cap seasonals and go per inch or per push and per salt app after.........

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a job where you make say $150k per year be totally wrong and still have a job tomorrow?

    I know a weather man, he wishes he made $150K a year. Maybe Matt Noyes on NECN makes that but you local small market weather man only makes $35-$45 still a lot for being wrong!
