    Yo guys,
    Here in Northern IL, we have a Snow advisory during sundey night and Monday. I hope we get it, I hope we dont get it, does not matter to me because I already started my landscaping. But this snow season has been weak for the midwest. Any of you other guy's think it will come?

    We're under a Winter Weather Weather Advisory for tonight and tomorrow. I've already called my customer and told them I wouldn't be out unless they called me. Told them I'd do more damage than good. They all agreed they'd drive on 6 inches of snow rather than have their driveway torn up.

    I hope that the storm misses us, or at least remains warm enough to just fall as rain. I have started too many projects that don't need to be snowed on, and will be starting another this week...maybe.

    The little bit of extra income, along with an opportunity to finish up the salt supply would be nice too though...

    I heard 3-6 inches for my area. I have to say that I really don't want it though because this week I have alot of spring clean ups to do.

    We're getting snow right now. The grass is pretty well covered. So far none is sticking on the pavement.
    A little while ago the flakes were as big as half dollars:eek:
    Earlier in the week it was 87 degrees.

    Just more wierd weather,

    John- Hope you are right, for once I'm hoping it won't snow. We have been doing clean-ups for close to 3 weeks now, finishing the jobs that weren't finished last season. I felt we were getting back on schedule, with 4 or 5 new clients to get to this week.
    Oh well not much we can do about it. Like Sonjaab says, with snow it is always feast or famine. Good luck and stay safe guys. Mike

    Well, at 10pm the NWS dropped the warning for all of NJ except Morris, Sussex, and Warren. All day my family was telling me about the snow, and all day I told them I will believe it when I see it. Ground temps are too warm, would have to be one helluva snow for it to be plowable.

    Urgent - Winter Weather Message National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 930 PM EDT Sun Apr 6 2003

    ...A Winter Storm Warning Remains In Effect For Northwestern New Jersey - Berks County - The Lehigh Valley And The Poconos For Monday And Monday Evening... ...A Winter Weather Advisory Remains In Effect For Southeastern Pennsylvania And Most Of Central And Southwestern New Jersey For Monday And Monday Evening...

    .A Large High Pressure System Over Nearby Canada And A Low Pressure System Currently In Eastern Oklahoma Will Combine To Give The Region A Late Winter Storm. This Is A Similar Synoptic Set Up To The Presidents Weekend Snowstorm As The Main Contributor Will Be The High Pressure System Supplying Fresh Cold Air To Northern Parts Of Our Region. The Low Pressure System That Will Go Off The Virginia Coast May Very Well Have Above Normal Sea Level Pressure. The Southern Plains Low Pressure System Is Expected To Move Northeast Into The Ohio Valley Monday Morning As A Secondary Low Forms Along The Virginia North Carolina Coastal Plain. This Low Should Exit The Virginia Capes Early Monday Evening. Meanwhile The Large High Pressure System Is Expected To Remain Nearly Stationary In Nearby Canada. While It Will Be Cold Enough For Snow Across The Northern Sections Of New Jersey And Pennsylvania...The Slice Of Cold Air Will Become Shallower Farther South. This Will Permit Sleet To Mix In And May Be The Predominate Wintry Precipitation Type Around The Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area.

While The Morning...Especially The Early Part Of It...Commute May Not Be Bad...The Evening One Is Expected To Be Treacherous. The Precipitation Intensity Is Expected To Be Heavy Enough That It Will Stick To Roadways As Temperatures Will Be Close To Freezing. The Snow Should Taper Off And End During The Evening. A Winter Storm Warning Is Issued When Severe Winter Weather Is Expected To Occur. Heavy Snow Is Forecast To Accumulate In The Affected Areas Causing Hazardous Driving Conditions.

    Hey Comet- Looks like we are in for 6"-12". It's 11 pm on Sunday night and they are still saying it will begin during morning rush hour and continue all day. Near blizzard conditions during the afternoon.Where are you on LI? We are in the Huntington area, definitely up for a coffee sometime, I always like talking to other people in the business. Are you involved at all in the Landscape Gardeners Association? Be safe out there and make $$$. I would rather not have snow now and continue with the landscape work, but you can't argue with mom nature. Mike

    Temps around here have been cold for the last two days. Its 10:00Pm now. This feels like it could be a big storm, it is very scary looking outside as I speak. I am finishing up putting my 98' Sierra back together as I type! I took it apart, thinking the season was over. Once again, never say never!

    Good thing is I don't have to due my 200 residential driveways, so I will have some fun plowing the commercials.
