    I'm not sure what will happen with this thread, but I thought I'd see since I see more & more western Canadians on this site, & also since weather in the west is quit diffenent then the weather in the East.

    In my part of the world we have been getting a few flurries over the last few days, just enough to cover the ground, but not enough to do most accounts, only the "zero tolenance" sites. Mostly been getting up just to throw salt or melt down.

    Have any other western Canadians been out yet this year? I know Lethbridge & Calgary area's have got it a few times already.

    I've only been plowing 2 times so far, but have visited zero torerance sites 6 times already.

    Well it's a little warm here, been pouring rain for 24 hrs(would've been alot of snow) but it looks like it's suppost to get below 0c this weekend & get a bit of snow. I guess I'll see. What are they calling for Edmonton & Calgary this weekend? I know they a bit colder then here.

    Well I got more snow here in Cranbrook, It's been snowing for 3 days straight, A few places are already running out of room to put snow. Got well over a foot in the last few days. Daytime temps are around +1 though so everything gets real mucky/ugly in the afternoons.
