    Ok Grassbusters its a official, I'm going to predict the next snow event for Northern Illinois. I'm predicting towards the end of next week on January 12-13. I have this feeling that this one is going to be the same as or bigger than the last. Lets all keep are fingers crossed and get ready. :bluebounc

    We got between 12-14". We plow with the storm and are paid per push. So, the bigger the storm the more pushes we get and that means more money. Plus all of my commercial acounts get salted after every push. payup

    One of the weathermen predicted something for Columbus, Ohio next weekend. I did not catch everything he said, but I hope it is not rain again. Can only hope for snow though.

    It is nice to see guys that still get excited with the snow. Pretty much everything here is contract for the year. That takes a little something out of it. Maybe it is the FUN. Good luck to all and I hope you get what you wish for. Look after your equipment and it will look after you.

    Thanks

    I guess part of it for me is that plowing is fun. Maybe is just the big kid in me.

    Hope this stuff melts in the next couple of days. A storm next week looks to be coming. My smaller lots are already stuffed in the corners to the max. Any buddy looking for extra help in the wood dale, dupage area. I have 2 trucks running around....

    Why are you hopeing the snow melts off? Sounds like an oppertunity to make some real money there spiviter! Loader work and removal is major bucks. The company I work for has strict policys about stacking and pushing over curbs just for that reason.
    Let it snow :)

    I have no place to dump snow yet. And I do offer the service at $250/hr...But I do stack up to the 6' mark and that is it. Don't want to break the truck.....
