    Where's the option for when there's enough snow to push? That's when I get up

    When snow stops I'm up. Wife wakes up at 4 and tells me if there is snow on the ground. Then when there is enough snow on ground I'm going out.

    If there is snow on the radar i can't/don't sleep, around here it's way to exciting to see snow so i want to be the first one on the roads... lol, and as long as it's snowing i'll live in my truck untill it stops.

    A better question is "When do you go to sleep when it's snowing?"

    I'm generally up every two hours to check the radar and conditions.

    I'm usually up by 1:00 - 1:30am. I have a lot of ground to cover... different areas to check snow accumulations, then call drivers accordingly. I like to have the drivers on site and plowing by 3:00am.

    It all depends on how much snow there is to plow. If its just a couple inches I can be done in 4-5 hours, then adjust for there for more snow.

    Depending on what the forecast predicts for an accumulation and how fast it'll come down then I'll determine an approximate time for 4 to 6 inches and set my time for making my first pass on the driveways.

    every hour from 1130pm on if theres snow in the forecast, check out the window, check radars.

    Finally, someone similar.

    I'm up about 11 PM checking.

    Bedside forecasting will get you screwed, especially in lake effect areas.
