    We've been out 4 times. One was a complete waste, two others there was maybe 3" and the other we had a nice lake effect storm, about 6-8" or so. I hope this season is more of a fluke rather than a sign of things to come.

    3-6" 10/29 and 4-6" 1/21. I get paid a seasonal rate so the less the better.

    normally i have about 16 events a season on average over my 10 years of plowing and right now im at 2 events for the season. Pretty sure this winter is just going to be a wash. everybody keeps saying that feb. and march are going to be snow snow snow, but i was also listening to everybody in the fall saying that december and january were going to be brutal with snow.. Even my local news station said winter was giong to come in like a lion. needless to say im never going to believe in long range forcast again.

    Long range forecasts are for entertainment purposes only.

    Kinda like tomorrow's forecast. They get it wrong over and over and over and over.
    "entertainment"

    You wanna know what the weather is gonna do ...... look out the window.
