    WELL WE HAVENT HAD A GOOD WINTER IN A COUPLE OF YEARS..
    I have learned that we cannot trust these winter forecast's to be reliable,.
    so I guess we just have to sit back relax and wait ,at least it is seasonable cold. so that's a good sign.
    lets see what 13-14 has instore for us

    My uncle uses farm family. I also have a policy with them. They crush the competition

    2 boss b8s and a vbx sander on the way from esi trucks. Rw couldnt touch them in price even with paying truck freight. Very excited for thrm to get here monday. Were handling a new complicated lot but buying this stuff pretty much guarantees it wont snow for at least a year.

    Need to get the plows out soon but i still have brick to put down.

    I also use farm family for my landscape company. They are great but are moving away from snow plowing coverage. If you dropped your coverage in the last 3 years for snow they will not renew it. from what I understand they are getting away from it due to the amount of claims. I could be wrong. They do have awesome rates and everyone is great at the office

    I had the 9' boss straight and after almost not making it through the blizzard last year i took my pay and went to jersey and bought a mint used 9.2 boss v. Looking to put a mount on the international as a back up but its custom and RW is saying its going to be at least $2000. I need to show it to my fabricator and see what he can do


    Im working in garden city all week, do you service that area?


    Maybe ill slide it out the V today if theyre saying thanksgiving, that would be fun.

    Nah I stay above 25A for pretty much everything.

    I might be heading through there to work with a friend in Massapequa but not sure where since he's all over Nassau.
