    Normally my phone works fine however since it took a bath in pinesol water it wants to act up now and again, I think it's time to spend the $50.00 and get it replaced through the insurance.

    I'm thinking Friday night/Saturday morning will be our first full push!! I've heard several inches are possible in the snow belt areas, and all the weather sites are saying 80-90% chance of Snow!! Temps will only be in the upper 20's..

    Finally, got to drop my blade, only to clean up from my side walk crew. And I was able to put down 800lbs of salt so far and its still snowing, possibly 3" by tomorrow morning, maybe more if the winds hit us just rite for the lake effect to kick in! Anyone up north gettin any decent amounts?
