    I don't know how you guys in Penn, and NJ can stay in the snow plowing business. I was literally just thru there yesterday and I barely seen any snow. I talked to a guy in NJ who I bought a snow plow from and he said the little bit of slop you see here (maybe a inch or so) is all we've gotten all year, thats why I am selling this plow.

    We got roughly 90 to 100 inches so far this year, and more storms on the way for this weekend and in the upcoming days. WOOOOOO WHOOOO!!!!

    South Shore in MA has 44.1 inches and we got lots of rain. I am just a sub with a few driveways and I have made about $4100. Not a bad season considering last years 8 inches

    This is a bad year for us, so far a total of 62.5 inches and we should be around 80-90 by now. 4 major storms missed us like some one was steering it right around us. Lots of freezing rain events this year, last year 1 or 2, this year 4-5 and this weekend is supposed to be freezing rain event too. Freezing rain is fine by me!

    Cleveland Ohio is at 30.2" for the season. 20" below average so far this year. But we are I believe 7 inches above average for rainfall for the season. The storms kept missing each other by literally 12 hours on 4 ocassions. but what can you do....
