    Well, it's not the gold mine some have been wait'n for but it might put a smile on some faces. I for one think it sucks that God would put me in speedos today and in a parka tomorrow but my neighbours will be happier and less disgusted tomorrow (for sure!).

    I know they are calling for a possible 5cm of snow tomorrow for my area....we'll see. I still have a lot of salt on the parking lots from the day before with the slick conditions....maybe it will burn it all off lol.

    I plow several properties in Aurora and Newmarket. They are a nightmare. When it hits 5cm or slightly less, Im gonna get out there and plow these spots two or three times....otherwise, its gonna take me the rest of the winter to to 8 inches...................:cry: I wish I was a surf instructor in Hawaii

    Nothing listed here but rain.

    I swear it feels like a breezy summer day here. If not for the wind, its t-shirt weather.

    I'm in Brooklin, a short jaunt to newmarket. When I'm done in the city I'm more than happy to help someone out for the right price.

    I will be in Nobelton in the afternoon until about 2pm and coming home through newmarket.

    A lot of my places are in the Yorkdale area of Toronto. We got a grand total of 1" last night. Best Dec. and Jan I have had in years as far as income ratio to hours worked and I am loving it.

    We had 3 hours of mixed rain and freezing rain. I sent the salt trucks at 4 am. At 6 am they phoned to say it was snowing hard and in 1 hour we had 1". Next phone call at 8 am. Broken plow, broke the U bolt at the top of the Fisher plow that holds the chain. So my day started at 8 am and I plowed until 8 pm. Broke a hose at 6 pm but that was a 20 min. fix and away I went. Total snow 3-4" and 2 salt runs.

    Where are you plowing in Aurora/Newmarket and what does your truck look like?

    Same here went out to plow only half the places I do(North york area). Second time I've only plowed slush with my F550 with a blizzard 8611. first was early boxing day morning. That combo doesn't like small amounts of snow:p
