    I've been out and shoveled 2 times and then a bit another time. Unless we get a buttload of snow later on in the season- which we might- I'm done with this stupid ass business- I'll make more next year selling my snowblowers!

    Yes we have had snow. But for the last 4 or 5 years we have had maybe 3-6 events. But in years before that, we got alot of snow like everyone else. Everyone is feeling the effects of snow less winters. Then again we always seems to get a few small storms, like 2-4" then there is one good one. payup As far as being70 degrees out, It hasnt been that warm. It has been mild November and December, and part of January. (45-60) These last 2 weeks have been cold. With even a few days below 20. Now if you guys North of us stopped hogging all the snow, maybe we would get some.

    This business is not for the faint at heart. Let's face it, I'm not happy with the past 2 winters either, but the weather runs in cycles. '78-'84 were good snow years, '85-'88 were not, '89-'94 were good again, '95 was so-so, '96-'98 sucked, '99-'04 were pretty decent, '05 was mediocre, '06-today we are back in the slump. What I am trying to say is, we should (hopefully) get better again in the next few winters, then we'll be back to complaining about no snow. BTW- I am not saying that I have scientific studies that back this up, it's simply a theory I've come up with based on my observations through the years. During the slow years I sell off the older, more beat equipment then when things start looking better, I replace what was sold with newer stuff. My simple system that works for me!!

    That snow lasted all of 5 minutes. What a tease, we will get something though. I have seen so much plows, spreaders and trucks for sale in the last month it isnt funny. It is a good time to buy. I am going to wait to almost the end of this month. If get no snow ill drive up to my dads house and play up there. But in the mean time ill keep my fingers crossed.

    Well first they said 1/2".. Then they said 1-3" then changing to rain by midnight. Then they said 1-3" and if it dont change to rain 1-2'. Well we got 2" on the island. Changed over from snow to sleet, around 6:30 then all rain by 9 pm. Still got to plow though. :drinkup: How did everyone else make out.?

    Finally Snow... and lots of rain... First push of the season working under new sub. Worked out good. The one thing that totally sucked was the traffic... It took me 1.5 hours to get home from work at 3:30pm and only drove 25 miles.. People are truly ********... I passed over 17 accidents, counted them all during those 25 miles... Other than that and the sloppy rain slushy mess at the end of the night it went well... The beast held up and got me home in one piece. I got a good 9 hours in after working 10 hours at my 9 to 5...and hope for some more snow soon... We got around 3 to 4 inches in some parts of the island before switching to pouring rain... I couldnt belive this morning when I woke up to 50 degrees and it was all gone...

    finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well it happened!!! about 2 inches or so here, got to do all accounts finished around 1am...
    wasted some salt earlier in day (should have waited) but customers were calling at 4pm!!!
    Very heavy rain though throughout the night, makes you wonder. Best part of night was a grilled cheeze sandwich fries and baked clams at my favorite diner at 2am!!!!! :drinkup:payup Good Luck guys.
