    Montana, Wyoming had snow 2 weeks ago. About 15" or so. Also got into the mountains of Colorado. Sammy from Intergraded may have even seen some white stuff.

    WAAAAAAAAAAY to early for snow, in fact if it stays away till January, and temps in the 60's-70 is fine with me. I have waaaaaaaaaaaay to much outside to work to complete before then. After that let it snow let it snow.

    Our first plowable snow is usually in the first or second week of November. However, when the "S" word comes up in the forecast, alot of the proposals in the 'quotes out' file get pushed into the 'sold' file in short order. And, with the high temps to be in the low 40's this weekend, we will get alot of people to move off center with regards to signing up.

    Is it that way with any of you ??

    I have at least 2 contracts faxed to me during the first snowfall every year. No matter how mnay reminder calls they recieve. Company policy, no contract no plowing.
    Poor planning on their part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

    HERESY you speak!!!!!!!!!!! You oughta be drummed out of SIMA for that kind of talk! Snow is like sex in a couple ways,, first you never know how many inches there will be nor how long it will last,,and secondly, NEVER pass up the opportunity, every one you miss is one you can never get back!

    John,

    I just think you are anxious for you to snow. i think we all are. I have been getting my trucks ready and can't wait.

    Contract renewals are coming in like crazy. Let it snow, let it snow , let it snow
