    i hear you!

    It says for a wintry mix tomorrow, but with a low of 39 i think all we'll see is dreaded rain :(. I haven't had a chance to try more magic out. Last weekend was a teaser, but i got to test some magic and the results were excellent.
    Maybe we should buy some snow from john allin :).

    All rain but northern areas may see a sleet mix to start quickly changing over, hence the "mix" term.

    More rain for Tuesday as well. Dont worry our time will come, in the meantime I will watch the mailbox Jan 2 for those 100% profit checks from the seasonal accounts ;)

    In fact I am sorry we had those small events, as we charge for one 2-4" snow fall during months that we get no snowfall on all our per push accounts. But at least the seasonals are making money so far. Thanks Lawrence for the idea, would have never thought of it on my own. LOL

    Heavy rain forcast for today and tomorrow up here. I'll take it, so we can rest up a bit. If it were snow we'd be in for another 30cm.

    I know what you mean we are getting alot of rain here in Baltimore. Freezing temps until precip moves in and then al of a sudden the darn temp rises and all it does is rain. I have put a new plow on this year wanna try it but doesnt look like anytime soon!!!!!!!!!!

    Hard rain here in Vermont. Snow from Thursday is all gone, frost is getting softened up pretty badly. I hope we see more cold before it snows again, I HATE plowing over unfrozen ground. The rain started out as freezing rain, some places were pretty slippery last night at 11:00, I held off doing anything as it was warming up then. Went out around 5 this morning and dropped a little mix on a few gravel drives. Other than that, just sitting here watching the rain fall.
