    well its march 10 and the 15 day looks like its about to start warming up. I think I will clean and grease the sh-t out of my equipment and put it away for the winter. What does everyone think. Im in central NJ. Thanks

    I think it was around the 5th-10th of April 2 years ago when we got dumped with about a foot of heavy wet snow.

    I put my plow night-night yesterday!!!! Cleaned, greased and painted a few rust spots. Took the pump off,sanded it, degreased and gave it a good shot of fresh paint and a good oil change.:D The light frame got a good sanding and painting as well. But those will stay on the truck till April 1st, just because this is NE Ohio and you just never know:dizzy:

    From the weather model sites that I watch, it appears that there may be a chance of another witner type precip event around 3/16-3/18 time period. It looks like the warm air will retreat around Thur, followed by a cold shot from Canada Fri- Mon. At the same time, it appears there are several small short waves of energy coming through the area. This could result in some wintry precip.
    Or it could all be over. Who knows anymore!

    I think it was two years ago, I plowed in the beginning of May... small amount, but my gear doesn't go far away until mid May. Weirder things have happened.

    If I put the plow away, it will snow. If I leave it out, it won't snow. We need the moisture so its going to be put away.

    My stuff is unhitched, but not away. As Derek said, anything can happen. Although, come to think of it, I had to switch out the blue lens for the amber one....not worth switching back for the few storms we may get.:jester:

    Nice storage setup!!!

    Myselve the plow isn't put away yet but the outlook is warm. I don't know where I'll store it yet. My old truck was just used to plow so I parked it with the plow. This one is my daily driver so I will have to store the plow somewhere.

    Agreed. Slick storage setup. The joys of a heavy steel building!
