    Looks like we're getting the shaft once again. I'm so glad I bought this plow last year. :cry: I got to use it once last year. I actually put it on yesterday and I think I jinxed us. O well, at least it will be in excellent shape when I decide to get rid of the truck and plow setup.

    Central Jersey here. Monmouth County. It may be worth it up where u're from, but who knows for sure. I guess it all depends when it starts and what path it decides to take. Looks like we're going to get a sloppy mix which sux.

    ...A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM TO IMPACT THE REGION FROM TUESDAY INTO
    WEDNESDAY...

    LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING OVER THE SOUTHERN GREAT PLAINS ON MONDAY
    AFTERNOON IS FORECAST TO TRACK INTO THE TENNESSEE RIVER VALLEY BY
    LATE TUESDAY. THAT LOW IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN ON TUESDAY NIGHT AS
    ANOTHER AREA OF LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS NEAR THE EASTERN SEABOARD AND
    ULTIMATELY PASSES TO THE EAST OF DELAWARE AND NEW JERSEY ON
    WEDNESDAY.

    THE COMPLEX SYSTEM WILL BRING A WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION TO
    SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, THE UPPER DELMARVA, AND CENTRAL AND
    SOUTHWESTERN NEW JERSEY FROM TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.

    THE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN AS LIGHT SNOW ON TUESDAY,
    MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOON. UP TO AN INCH OF SNOW MAY ACCUMULATE BY
    THE END OF TUESDAY EVENING'S COMMUTE.

    ON TUESDAY NIGHT, THE SNOW IS EXPECTED TO MIX WITH SLEET AND
    FREEZING RAIN. THERE WILL LIKELY BE AN ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATION
    ALONG WITH SOME ICING. THE SNOW AND ICE WILL MAKE FOR DANGEROUS
    TRAVEL CONDITIONS. DEPENDING ON THE TRACK OF THE STORM AND THE
    TIMING OF THE CHANGE FROM SNOW AND SLEET TO FREEZING RAIN, LOCATIONS
    IN SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, THE UPPER DELMARVA, AND CENTRAL AND
    SOUTHWESTERN NEW JERSEY COULD EXPERIENCE A SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATION
    OF ICE.

    TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO RISE ABOVE THE FREEZING MARK AROUND OR
    SOMEWHAT AFTER DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY. SOME LOCATIONS, ESPECIALLY NORTH
    AND WEST OF A NEW BRUNSWICK TO PHILADELPHIA TO WILMINGTON LINE, MAY
    EXPERIENCE A DANGEROUS WEDNESDAY MORNING COMMUTE. MOREOVER,
    ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN IS POSSIBLE ON WEDNESDAY, AND THE COMBINATION
    OF MELTED SNOW AND ICE AND HEAVY RAIN ALONG WITH A FROZEN GROUND MAY
    CAUSE FLOODING CONCERNS.

    FINALLY, MINOR TIDAL FLOODING MAY BE A PROBLEM ALONG THE NORTHERN
    NEW JERSEY COASTLINE, RARITAN BAY, ADJACENT BACK BAYS AND THE
    TIDAL DELAWARE LATE WEDNESDAY MORNING INTO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON,
    AND BLOWOUT TIDES MAY BE A PROBLEM ON THURSDAY.

    PLEASE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO UPDATED WEATHER FORECASTS AND
    STATEMENTS OVER THE COMING DAYS FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION. THE
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THE
    SITUATION.

    AS THE STORM MOVES UP OVER CANADA'S MARITIME PROVINCES ON WEDNESDAY
    NIGHT AND THURSDAY, IT IS EXPECTED TO PULL MORE ARCTIC AIR DOWN INTO
    OUR REGION FOR THE END OF THE WEEK. ANY SLUSH OR STANDING WATER ON
    ROADS AND WALKWAYS WILL FREEZE QUICKLY

    Ridiculous is all I can say right now. This decent storm we were supposed to get turned into freezing rain and that's all. O well maybe next year...If I still own this truck by then.

    I live in south jersey strait across the river from philly airport and we did not get what them #$% %$#@ ^%$#*$% @^^*&(#$ said we would but we did get a few inches of power them ice.I was able to plow for awhile and make a few bucks. I worked for 21 hours plowing all kinds of places. Was nice and easy if you got to it before anyone drove on it. After that i had to do the same place 2 sometimes 3 times to get it cleared.
