    Ok, I have a little dilemma going on here. I am supposed to leave for Daytona for the race on Friday early morning and the report for Sunday into Monday so far they are calling for a light accumalation and turn over to rain. So,if it did that there would be no plowing and the rain would wash everything away anyway. What is your opinion on the situation if you were in my position? Would you stay or go and just let the rain wash things away anyway?? I have a few options to have someone stand by,but I don't trust anyone with driving of the trucks.

    Definately agree with this... biz comes first.

    If you go definately have someone scheduled to watch and/or take care of it as necessary. It has to be someone you trust or you will a)worry all weekend b)come home to a mess to sort out.....

    The rain will not neccesarily "wash it away". This is a common mistake people make. If you get an inch or so then it turns over to rain it will usually just get under the snow and run off, under the snow and leave a rutted mess. If the temperature drops, then a frozen, rutted mess of very wet, heavy ice/snow.

    My best advise is to Fed-Ex the tickets to me and I will personally tape the race so that you can watch it (next week) from your own seats.

    Heck I'll even drink a couple for ya :) :)

    You know how it is going to work out. If you go it will snow and if you stay home it we be a great weekend. 2 years ago I went to the Masters. Second weekend in April what are the chances of snow. Well I left in the worst ice storm I have ever seen but I had everything well taken care of before I left. Business first, pleasure second.

    Please!! GO!!

    I for one would like to see you go so that there is a better chance of snow. It would also be nice if you could forget to line anything up (back up) and that should be a for sure thing. I just hope it snows here too.

    LMAO, tis the truth.

    Seriously, I couldn't have a good time, knowing that it may be snowing at home. Good customers are hard to find and I couldn't jepordize losing one cause I was out of town during the snow season.

    Last Sunday they predicted a "trace" of snow before midnight and rain from 3am to 6am. It turned out to be 2" of snow and tons of rain mixed in with it until 11:30am on Monday. It was total slop everywhere and extremely heavy. I wouldn't trust leaving my business. I would stay and be prepared for the worst (or the best). :D Plus you could actually be killing two birds with one stone if you go out plowing while listening to the race on the radio.
