    We are finally getting a decent snow up here in southern Ma! They are calling for 5 to 10 for our area, I am all ready to go can't wait. I have been waiting for another good storm. It is 5:58am now and I have been up for an hour, only a dusting right now but still snowing so I will be going out soon to sand.

    Just got in 6:45 a.m. I cleaned the small commercial lots so they can open. Going to breakfast with the wife, and then back at it. There is about 3" on the ground now and they are calling for up to 7" by the time it stops this afternoon. Be safe out there guys, and go make some $$:) Mike

    ok scraped my commercial accounts and I am home for lunch, We are supposed to get a good 8 to 12 inches. still snowing pretty good outside. Will go out once or twice more for commercial accounts and then head out around 9 or 10 tonight and do all my commercial one last time and all my residential accounts all night. Finally I am making some money, I hope all you guys are too, Its about time and they are talking about more snow Monday and Tuesday, but I won't count my chickens before they hatch. We will see, stay safe and have fun! Yes there are alot of people out there who shouldn't be who slow us down and get in the way.

    You guys have it easy, plow, go home, plow go home.

    When I go out to the apartments, I'm there until the storm stops, and then back the next day.

    I was out since 1:30 AM, just got back at 2:30 PM.... didn't sleep for over 24 hours, but made tons of cash.

    Back out there tomorrow.

    Well I was out all day Friday and then all night. I got home at 6:30am and then after an hour and half sleep went back out at 8 to finish up. Made lots of money, I am getting ready for round 2 tomorrow, supposed to start between 9 and 1 and go until late at night. They are saying 4 to 8 and possibly more. This is great finally mother nature is making up for January. I had a few problems though which made the night a little more of a pain. I first broke my passenger side window because the person riding with me wasn't watching his side, so I have to find someone to fix that tomorrow morning. Then I slid off a raised gravel driveway and got stuck. I had to call a neighbor at 2 in the morn and get a ride back to my other truck to pull it out. It put a damper on things. But when the income starts rolling in I will be happier!:) Good luck tomorrow everyone and think snow!

    more snow

    Looks like as much as another 6" is on the way for us tomorrow morning and afternoon. Friday was a good storm and it looks like this one may be good. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Mike

    I just got up an hour ago and just checked the weather. Now they advisory says 4 to 6, then while reading two more popped up with one saying 3 to 5 and the other 2 to 4. So lets hope the friggin weatherman are wrong and we get hit hard again.

    just started snowing about a half hour ago, very light and nothing collecting yet. They are saying 3 to 5 before it is over late this evening. I sure hope its closer to 5 but three will do I guess. Its better than nothing

    Been snowing here for a couple hours now. Pretty light but getting heavier now. Pavement temps are pretty high so no collection yet. Not sure if this will be a plowable storm.

    Its looking pretty positive right now! The snow has picked up and the radar shows it pretty thick white stuff coming our way. The snow looks pretty wet and they are still saying 4 to 6 before it ends this evening around 8. They say it will fall an inch an hour between 4 and 8 tonight. We will see, good luck to all those in the snowfall area, have fun and think snow!
