    Never again will I believe any weather forecasts or predictions from anyone about anything. So We have this huge storm coming supposedly last night through wedenssday morning. We're supposed to get 5-8" according to all of the weather services out there. Well it's almost 11am now on Tuesday, we have 1.5" of snow (close to the 2" trigger, but not close enough to call it and go plow) and it has started to rain. Now they say freexing rain, but I"m just not buying itas it s 37 degrees out there now, and only supposed to warm further. Yet again old man winter has screwed me over, truly dashing my hopes from a 3 or 4 time plowable event, to a laughing stock of me even having the plow on the truck this year. Best of luck to the rest of you guys, hope you are making it good!

    well just got my truck back last night. put the plow on and threw the salt in the bed. tested the salter and the plow. Ready to go. Theyre calling for 5-10 inches where I am in Northern nj. We'll see how it goes. Im not counting on much though. I would however like to drop this blade at least once this year. Glad I bought the salter or I wouldnt of had any work thus far this season.

    But yea your right they keep changing things....first we were in the 12-18 inch range...then mostly rain....now 5-10. :dizzy:

    I'm down in Athens county (actually I'm right around the city of Athens). It's been a real slow year so far, only had two plowable events, and unfortunately I sold the spreaders last year (guess I"ll take that one on myself).

    Come here to Cleveland. I am done. I started salting at 3 am Tuesday, got done with plowing and salting Thursday morning after 15.5 inches of snow plus huge drifts. Now were moving snow with loaders. Went 72 hrs with 6 hrs sleep, and now it's f*c**ing snowing again. What the F***.
