    I have no idea how many on here are from this area, but I am.

    The bank thermometer said 55 today, maybe winter is over

    I don't think so. It was 50 at 3 am and down to 32 now and 10 tonight with some snow.

    It's down to 40 now...I guess I jumped the gun, hope for a little snow before spring...just bought a new spreader motor, nothing but trouble all year, I want to get an easy one before putting it away

    Mud vs. Snow

    As happy as I was to see the snow melt, it comes with a price

    Don't blame Albany, The capital is only the middle man, all our money still goes to NYC. By the way, looks like snow Friday maybe and again on Monday...don't call winter over just yet. My longest day of plowing was St. Patricks Day 2007.

    Mud
    And
    Rain
    Causes
    Headaches

    50 degrees and rain to 32 and sleet/freezing rain in 3 hours...gotta love this time of year, now waiting for the changeover to snow. NWS says 5-10" but all the local guys saying 1-3". Guess we'll have to wait it out.

    1 - 4" from NWS, I wouldn't mind one more push, with the changeover to heavy rain, I may get away without salting.

    Looking kinda dry out there !!!! I am doing a dog crap pickup. what a crap job. A lot of albany and troy residents don't want to clean after there dog, pay $20/biweekly to have me come and pick up (15 mins) Then mow $20 more and 15 min more. Not bad...

    Since this is the NY politics thread. In yesterdays paper there was a story about Carl not paying his bills for the campaign he ran. In some cases people submitted invoices for work they did and he sent them half with a note saying that's all he thinks their work is worth. I love NY!
