    I just heard Tom Skilling talking about some new info on a possible SIGNIFICANT snow fall for Chicago Thurs & Friday. Anyone else hear anything?

    Just read his blog.....He says the cold front is slowing down and a low pressure system is going to develop in Texas and head North. If this happens it could get very interesting around here! Big Snow!!! payup payup payup

    Lots of my sesonal customers from last year have been slow in sending in contracts. A nice heavy wet snowfall is just what the doctor ordered to bring the remaining customers back.
    I always love the last minute customers who need their drives cleared now but have not sent in a penny.

    LET IT SNOW!

    As a side note, it sure was nice putting up xmas lights in 60 degree temps and driving around with the top off in november

    Is this better......these 60 degree temps are nice. Cruising around with the top off in November is fantastic. I think this WARM weather will be with us for awhile

    The forecasts are all over for us. Anything from 0 accumulation and cold to 12-15". This was at noon, the computer models are all over with this thing.

    My gut was telling me we're going to get hammered, but I'm starting to not feel that way anymore. Too many blown forecasts in the past couple three years.

    It is way to early in the game it is still first quarter.... patience...What is going to happened is everyone is going to post whatever they see on TV or hear on the radio.. seen it many times on this site..so everyone calm down and wait till is gets closer to the time of the event..

    100% agree.

    I would rather see threads created that say..."I just plowed ___ inches and man am I tired."

    This system was suppose to hit here pretty good. Well it missed us and we only got between 1-2 inches. Has been windy and now turning very cold.

    Our forecast for NWPA has changed 3 or 4 times in the last day and a half. I'm just glad ALL of our fall clean ups and mowings are finally done so now all I need to focus on is plowing, and no more big honkin trailer blocking my plow.
