    Think this is in the right forum it's weather related

    Having a problem with one of our per push contracts their arguing that we made up dates to get extra money because the other part of the winter was slow I think it was from sticker shock since they didn't pay for a thing for 3 months we submited out records but they are checking buffalo weather and saying that since buffalo says there was no snow here it didn't snow from experiance buffalo doesn't always record lake effect snow that comes off of lake ontario. They are refusing to pay for services on a couple of dates that we were out salting and plowing (to the tune of $2500) was wondering if anyone has any records for the following dates February 4, Feb 16, Feb 18 , Feb 22, Feb 23 In St. Catharines and Niagara Falls. Even if you have records that you were out working all of the weather sites I checked have 0 accumulation/precipitaion for these dates some salting was from melting snow that froze but we have records for plowing on the 4th, 16th, 18th, 22nd, 23rd I think most of these may have been from blowing snow but can't remember since I didn't personally service their sites

    Quoting "buffalo snow reports" can't be used accurately. You have a variation of over a foot (most of the time) from the Southtowns to Niagara Falls. I've been dry in Cheektowaga, white out in Tonowanda, and nearly impassable roads in Hamburg.... The weather varies mile by mile out there - way more then any of the cities I cover for my real job (which entails lots of driving all over Western NY).
