    What does everyone think next year will be like. Hope better than this last one ! Hopefully all the low ballers will go back to their regular jobs by then.

    I hope that we are in a nice pattern now with some "good" winters.......
    The last 2 have been tiring and I wanted to beat my head against the wall at times, but in the end, they were goodpayup
    As long as salt prices go back to a decent price (which they are going to)

    I'd be down for plowing year around. As long as we could have season's yet. Plowing snow when it's 75 out with a nice breeze would be neat.

    Last year as a muni I paid almost $140/ton, this year the state bid was already done and no one was left out like last and the price is rumored to be under $70/ton. This is still high IMO, but at least we won't have to mix sand this winter.

    Hey Scott, I picked up a 2001 Wrangler and I'm looking for a plow. I'll let you try it out for some more work this year...

    It's hard to get you lined up when you got the big city gig. I'd love to have you come out more often otherwise. For most it's too early to tell the full need of this winter coming up ... but I'm working toward some big things .. time will tell. Either case I'll call you as we come closer to the season - or feel free to call me, either way.

    Lets hope for a Weak El Nino. From the looks of it, nothing like the last 2 years.

    I don't understand this elnino crap. Even with a moderate el nino, we still get a good amount of snow? Seems like the guessers call every other year a elnino winter, anyone seeing a pattern here. LOL Damn guys can't guess what if its going to be sunny or cloudy tommorrow but they are already trying to forcast the winter.:gunsfiring:

    The last really piss poor winter we had here was 02-03
    I was subbing then, so I only got out 7 times. They still made good money on salt though.
