    I am getting a little nervous as well. I bought a F250 and 2 plows (one for my Dodge as well) this month and now its 60 degrees! When I was plowing as an employee, it snowed every day. Now that I have made the plunge, I'm thinking I should have bought 2 Exmarks instead of Sno Ways! :confused:

    You guys do know it's still Thanksgiving weekend right? Last year our first push on SW Michugan was 12/13...give it time and maybe schedule a last minute vacation. You'll be wishing you did in another month!

    Still early here.

    Last couple of seasons here we've had snow in the first week of December, but that's unusual as it doesn't really get going (if at all) until the first of the year.

    Personally, I hope it holds off a while this year, and potentially we have a light winter. Between last winter being a nightmare, my seasonal to per push accounts aren't quit 50-50 yet, I'd like to take a partial break this year and maybe get me a big Christmas Present.

    Haha Raymond, Your right. But its different when your own money is on the line. When I worked for the guy, I didn't care if it snowed all year. It was just money made on the side. Now I have 2 trucks sub'd to him. (plus a few of my own accounts) I know its early, but its hard not to figure out how much I loose each day it doesn't snow. I live in the lake effect region of PA. I know it will come, sooner or later.

    Believe you me my own money is on the line. I have 2 trucks, salters, 90 tons of salt piled in the shop and 3 guys chomping at the bit. I also have a 1/2 dozen cleanups yet to do, leaf equipment to unload, plows to prep, lots to stake, and last year's snowfall still fresh in my mind. You're right it will come sooner or later...right now I'd just rather it were later.

    We've already had 1 5'' that melted pretty much over night. No $$$.

    1 6'' of really heavy wet snow

    1 8'' of slush

    and 2 ice events

    Another ice event possible tomorrow and accumulation for thursday this week.

    I'm not trying to make any one jealous or any thing. lol

    My good used snow plow is almost paid for itself already.
