    Anybody else have the weird/horrible feeling that it might end up being another warm winter in the northeast?

    It was 12 degrees here this morning, yesterday's snow is frozen. If this precipitation trend continues this season, we're going to be busy!

    It got real cold here last night too.Down into the teens.

    Had to go out and salt two places because they have slight hills at them. Ended up using 1000lbs of salt for a lousy 1" of snow.

    They're saying chance of snow almost every day for the next week, hope we get enought to actually plow.

    The lighter the winter the more we make! Hopefully under 13 snow events. Being 100% commercial less is more for us. But for you guys doing residentials and per storm hope winter treats you GREAT!!!!!!!
  8. I'm hoping for more this year in Western New York. New 8' Western Pro plow 3 years ago and still no scratches.

    You know what s gonna happen now , and it's all my fault ....

    Now that I took the plunge and baught a new plow it's never gonna snow again in the northern NJ area.. just cause that s my luck... The plow sat unassembled in the garage and they say , 3 to 6" of snow.. so I go out and work all night long to get the plow together and installed and working on my truck ready to go the following morning inthe 6" of snow , I look out side and its' not even sticking.... they then said that the storm moved too fast and missed us.... Now you know this is because I put the plow together, right.... If I had just left it in the garage like a good little boy , it would have snowed like mad.... But no ... I had to go ruin it for everybody........ Ughhh LOL.....

    snow drought

    Here in Minneapolis, we just had the wettest summer ever. Now that we hit november, it's been one of driest months ever. Doesn't it figure. When you don't want precipitation you get it, when you do you get none. Last year was the same way. It barely snowed before Christmas, and we usually have at least 25 inches by then.

    I think all this equipment I've been buying is insurance against getting snow :( .

    Tell you what. You all buy me out - I move down South (not Florida .:nono: . Then we'll get lots of snow.:)

    I live in Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula, we still have green grass in places. We did get a couple of inches of snow but it all melted off. WEIRD!

    A buddy of mine got a heck of a steal on a Hanson truck mounted snowblower, I've been wanting to try it out but I'm not sure we'll have enough snow this year.
