    Stressing wondering if the rain mix line is going to move further north and I am going to be watching it rain.

    Alot of hoping the line goes further south.

    Watching news channels til I am blue in the face.

    A shift in a truck
    A shift on the shop floor
    A shift on the phones
    Kiss the wife, walk the dogs, beat the kid

    1. Stress
    2. More Stress
    3. Breakdowns
    4. Lost Money
    5. No Sleep
    6. Unrealistic Customers
    7. In the end a realization that we do better work then most of the companies out there.

    A blizzard is 12" of snow max not what the poor guys just went through in New York State. For all the guys that went through that my hat is off to you.

    Lots of expectations about the upcoming weather, then will promplty proceed to fix everything that should have been fixed last week, then plow and salt for hours, sleep for 30 mins here and there, plow and salt, sleep, repeat as often as needed until it's all pushed. This of course is in a perfect world, in fact it will either not snow, or someone in my family will have a crisis of biblical proportions and make me feel like a heel that I can't help them. Oh I forgot the "are you almost done" calls that I will get on the hour until I am home.

    Missing Valentine's Day because of plowing (actually, I was scheduled to be gone anyway with the FD, so our plans shouldn't be affected at all by doing dinner Thursday).
