    hmm . i imagine you live in mountains somewhere. suppose i never thought much about snow in carolina either until i saw it there. yeah. i looked it up too i was so surprised thinking about your post and it says maryland averages twenty inches a year. so if your in the mountains or north maryland i imagine you would see more. my mistake. i bet the further south you go the more plowing pays. less people with plows. and less people who are used to the snow.

    In central maryland in the last few years for single event snow fall totals

    03 28-32" depending on area
    05 18-23" depending on area
    06 3-6" of the thicked heaviest slush ever. If it was 3-4 degrees cooler, it would have been 18-30 depend on area.

    We average 24" per year. But we get a lot of little evens that are salt only. But when we get a real storm it drops a lot. If your in the fredrick area, the average storm is 6-11, where out in columbia its more like 2-3" in the same storm.

    Myself and SALOPEZ are always looking for subs with loaders, backhoes, large farm tractors, skid loader, mini skid loaders, compact tractors w/cabs, shovel crews, single axel dumps and pickups (equiped with western/fisher plows) Great pay, long hours, preseason maintaince help, Spares equipment for break downs, etc.
