    That is what I heard also. Probably a sanding event only with little scrapping for it.

    1 to 2 is enough to get me scraping/sanding my lots.

    I think only a bit this time, but neverless I will attempt to plow just for fun as I only do my driveway for now. But next week is something to look foreward to. wfsb.com was the first to pick up the change from rain to snow this past week, and I think I am going to trust them again for this weekend's forecast, although wtnh.com indicates a bit of snow then.

    Just a trace here so far, appears to have stopped snowing, a few more weeks until we get another good storm I think. With the exception of a VERY early storm in southern new england, winter in the northeast is off to a very slow start. They don't even have snow in ski country yet :cry: We are bound to get slammed in jan, feb, and march. :nod: My best guess is that it will start up just after christmas, maybe around new years, when it comes it will stay for a while.

    Oddly enough, I think you guys have recieved more snow in Ct. than up here in Vt. Barely managed to scrape a few commercial lots, almost didn't even do that.We aren't expecting any more snow up here than you guys. A little time off has been a welcome change from working seven days a week through the summer though.Guess I wouldn't mind a few more days to finish prepping.

    I knew it wasn't much, just major sanding and scraping in couple places. I also, heard next week weather is gonna change. They "Say" it supposed to be getting colder and maybe some snow will come with it.

    Over here we havent had anysnow this year execpt for maybe 1/8 of an inch. And today it rained until about 2pm and now its 57 Outside (it was like 30 last week)!!!! This is absolutly crazy for a december day. If you dont belive me.. www.weather.com zip 48236. If it was like 35 outside we proably would have like 5 inches of snow.

    Not much last night, but I plow sidewalks and they need to be scraped to the surface.

    We only had 1/4 of an inch.

    Today we have about a half an inch of sleet, and a 1/4 inch of snow. State is plowing & sanding/salting, town is salting/sanding.

    I have seen a couple guys plowing today (parking lots).

    Did you get any?
