    Ohio boys, you guys ready for this snow were going to get? I'm hoping we get hit hard. We could use it before the end of this billing period..

    Any one needing a hand, let us know..

    Good luck up there Ron.I saw on the news down here that they are calling for 12-24 up there. Be safe and have a good Turkey day. We got about 2 on the grassy areas and a little slush. Just have to salt here.

    good luck going up there ron, hope you find lots of work. i'm sure in a situation like that, there will have to be someone looking for freelance plowers. anyway be careful and rake it in!payup

    So Ron,

    How was your Thanksgiving? What did you end up with up there? Are you guys still trying to get a get together up around Cleveland? If so maybe I can make the trip up there?

    Got a bunch of teaser squalls, they would last 10 minutes.
    We got maybe 1 1/2 inches in Akron. Didn't even put the plow on. They just salted everything and was done.

    What a bunch of bs, these weathermen had WARNINGS out for TWO DAYS and all we got was 2 inches this morning. I didn't even bother going out especially when the sun came out. Would have been ripping my customers off. They told everyone to STAY HOME and off the roads, for two days.
    They suck, jackasses should lose their jobs. :angry:
    There, I feel better.

    My Thanksgiveing was great, thanks for asking. We ended up with around 3" here, and then a 1" lastnight with blowing. Went out and cleared lots again this moring, and salted every thing. We got 3 salts and 2 plows out of the deal. So its all good. today the ice was bad some lots had a 1/2" ice on the lots. As far as the get together, I would like to. But you know how that works out.. I would still like to have one. I know a other big thing is X-mas partys.. Were have one for all of my guys, My subs, Some other big plow companys we deal with. Were invite the guy from ODOT that helped us set up are Liq. Ice system. and Stuff like that.. I'll make sure if we dont hve a get together, i post the date herem and you and some of the other guys we deal with all the time from the site, can come.
