    Just finally did here the other day. 4" of the lightest powder snow. Calling for an ice storm next week followed by a potential snow storm. Def been a slow winter

    Yeah, a total of 4" of snow this winter which amounted to one salting and one plow/salt so far. And it is supposed to be in the HIGH 50's this time next week. So much for the oh my God it's going to be another bad winter, (unless you are in lake effect area, then it's been brutal.) RIDICULOUS!

    Ridiculous is one way to put it. We've plowed almost ever day this week; sometimes twice in one day. Another storm tonight thru Saturday morning. Been really busy but I guess it's making up for zero in December

    So it would seem that some of us can't buy a storm and others would pay for it to stop.

    It's of course the winter where we buy 2 new plows then we only have had 4 inches, this time last winter we had around 10". I saw the other day on the weather channel that it was snowing in Florida!? I know its not here... Frustrating

    Tell me about it. After the salt fiasco of last winter, I bought a shipping container and 25 tons of salt along with a skid steer to load it, spent about $50k so I would be ready to go and not have to worry about trying to find salt, and as you said, NOTHING. IT SUCKS, but I look at the salt as money in the bank. Whatever isn't used this year, will be around for next, and it's not going to get cheaper, so oh well.

    sorry... it's all my fault. I bought a plow for the jeep and I grew a beard so my face would be warm.

    Yep... We landed a larger contract this winter that we used to do for about 10 years. They got rid of us because they wanted one company to do all of their lots in Kansas City kansas and missouri... Well that didn't go to well for them going one contract with one company so we got called back this summer. We bid it and we get it so we had to buy another truck and 2 plows for the truck we bought and the other plow for our 1 ton that we already owned. We bought one for the 1 ton because the plow on that truck the first snow event we got this year the a frame broke on it! So we had to buy another 7,000 dollar plow for it. So after that expense I'm hearing 50's next week?!?! Guess instead of plowing we will be mowing again lol
