    They were talking about our first wet snow with this next system coming up on tuesday night. I thought they were messing around so i checked it out and sure enough there is the possibility of some wet flakes tuesday evening. No accumulation but it will be nice to see it come so early. They have temps at about 30 degrees for me in Northern Jersey so that should be interesting with all that rain and then temps dropping like that. Might have to salt :rolleyes:

    Wow rough looking junk they use. Surprising that they wouldn't have newer stuff seeing as they are a goverment organization Gotta like how they spray paint OK on them once they have been tested.

    HEY MIKE I HOPE YOUR RIGHT BUD:drinkup:


    ALL THE PLOWS IN THOSE PICS ARE FOR THE TRASH TRUCKS AT THAT YARD WHICH ARE 12 WHEEL FREIGHTLINERS........AS FAR AS OTHER TRUCKS YES THERE IS A WIDE VARIETY AND BUYING NEW PLOWS WOULD JUST BREAK THE BUDGET:dizzy: THE CITY HAS 670 PLOW TRUCKS,2 SNOW MELTERS(MAINLY USED AT THE AIRPORT) AND ABOUT 200 LOADERS, BACKHOES ETC.
