    I've done my residentials 6 times -most were 2" plows though. I did them because I have a small route and its real tight to my house, I was already out doing my commercials and because we have been in the 20's this January I didn't want all those little accumulations turning to ice and building up.

    my commercials I have been to 14 times so far, (I have a good contract that allows me to salt if the temps are below 32* and its has snowed).

    I have to say the weather forecasts this year have been pretty bad, like yesterday they said a few flurries and it ends up putting 4" down!

    Ya my contracts are pure home owners and I trigger at 3 inches..SO I am looking forward to more snow, last year with the pre pays was big for me,,But this year I am down on clients because we had so little snow/

    So hope fully we will get at least 15 trips in this season,,that will most likely get people to go back to yearly contracts ! !

    Forecasts around here this year are terrible. Hopefully ,sooner rather than later we will get one that is accurate.

    We got 6 to 8"+ in Clarence. 5-6 in Amherst. Plowed everything twice, because what we plowed from 11am-2pm had another 3-5 in it, plus all the commercials were packed with cars. Whats worse during a day run, moron people or school buses ? I HATE DAY RUNS.
    BTW the new Salt Dogg is awesome.

    nope, got squat last night, its 8am and its just now getting close to 2 1/2- not exactly what they called for.

    Mixed in some calcium with my rock salt last night 4* when I was plowing.

    Toro started up on first pull, :bluebounc

    We got about 8" on Wednesday night, and 4" last night in Palmyra. I was able to make 2 runs, and I'm sure I'll be making another run tonight. No problems with the new plow, or the little truck. I'm surprised at how well I can stack with this thing. she can build some nice piles for such a small truck.

    Karl, don't be jealous, you'll get it.
    Looked liked you guys got some yesterday and maybe this morning ?
    They keep calling for 1-3, but we've only got a 1/2". Just enough to salt

    Good luck and be careful
