    yea but in my opinion stomrs get much less.. air gets warmer melts faster.. i still think we are in the home strech.. personally i hate the snow.. much more money to be made landscpaing and mowing grass.. eveyrone runs around with a plow on the truck...

    Compared to last year, this year is already better. We only went out 3 times last year & I have done that just this month.

    Dido! in Erie Pa (home of the 50+ care pile ups) we've been getting pounded! Saturday night was the first night we were'nt out for hours in a couple of weeks. I think we have more than a few more weeks of winter, more like 8ish.

    as Montgomery says, we have had signifigant snow in april - April 1st, to be exact, about 12 or so years ago - had 24" inches in the Tuscarawas valley- was driving on state rt.39, into town to plow lots - blade was in high lift ( 7.5 ft meyers, 1982 chev k 15 shortbed 4wd, 33" tires, 2" body lift)- was bumping drifts here and there, all the way to town- usually do about 6 to 8 small commercial lots per snow, probably plowed 35 driveways, in addition to my regular customers!!! storm that slamed us is called a "panhandle hook" by the meterologists- need another one of these soon !!!

    It's been totally dry around here, two very light dustings and that's it!

    The Guessers are calling for "Something" Thursday night into Friday, probabaly more of the same!

    But with my luck , in mid April we'll get wacked with a heavy wet one, just as I want to head to Myrtle Beach. Story of my life! lol
