    Man!, we've been with out snow for weeks now. We did get a little blast but nothing really to speak of. Makes me nervous, we just bought a skid steer for removal and we started out strong but its been sitting idle for almost two weeks now and nothing in the forecast.

    Anyone need help with plowing or a loader PM me, lower states are supposed to get hit AGAIN this week and next! As I stated last year, wouldn't mind a little 3-5 hour trip to work a few days.

    Snowing here every bloody day. Somedays (like today), nothing to speak of. Very little total accumulation so far but constant salt events. Temperatures the last few days have been bitter cold, saw -18*C last night before windchill. Only seeing about -5*C tonight. Just got in from my rounds, only had to do a little spot-salting. Got about 1 3/4 yards of bulk solidified in the back of my dumptruck parked in the shop--first time that has EVER happened. Not happy about that at all!

    Is it bad that I'm already starting to look forward to April? :D

    Haven't plowed since January 8th? I went three years, from 06 to 08 looking at the same bags of salt in the shop. By the time I used them they were salt licks!

    Oh shut up! LOL,J/K I see Buffalo area getting snow every day it seems. When you get tired of plowing your million dollars worth of accounts give me a call so you can get a break.

    One of the worst things is the stupid weather people keep saying "1-3 possible" every freakin' day. Do I get more salt, or let it go for now. I hate having 525 gallons on my dump...that's a lot of weight and I don't want to drive around with a pallet of salt in my other truck.
