    I have often been curious when areas that arent use to getting snow get these big storms. Are there enough people with plows to plow everybodys driveway.

    I am in a small town,and so far the answer is no, there are not enough plow guy's to handle it. They have not had a major storm since 2001, and a lot of the guys gave up. I have had over 35 calls since Saturday morning,and I have done minimal advertising, because I have only been here for 6 weeks. I put out about 100 flyers,and vinyl lettering on my truck. Bill

    Yes, Just not enough. Most of the plowing is on gravel, mountain roads, which is very tedious. Bill

    must guys down here run skid steers or tractors just not enough snow to spend 5-6k on a plow but when you have a plow and we get a storm its worth every penny

    Well, This is a first for my eyes. It is raining ice this morning. Everything in sight is covered completely in a sheet of ice. They had been predicting this for a couple of days, so I went out yesterday and sprayed LCC on 9 of my accounts[ sidewalks,driveways etc... ] No one around here has ever tried this method of anti-icing,so when it stops raining ice sideways, i'll venture out, and see if it worked.

    Yeah man, stopped the ice around noon and rained the rest of the day. I am from Chicago, but I was in Florida for thirty years, forgot what this stuff was like, until I moved to NC 2 mos ago. I was going to move to Mountain City, but got sidetracked. Nice to have somebody to talk to, Thanks Bill

    Im guessing this is the storm thats coming from the south? Im in maryland.. Usually we get pounded if you all do. Our biggest storms have all been from the south, just like the last one.. Better get the grizzly ready for another battle
