    Looks like we won't get any snow for another 2 weeks or more here in cinci.:cry:
    I'm about ready to put my 5 skids of ice melt on the trailer put my V plow on and head to a state where they actually get snow. I could stay until cinci gets snow so I can take care of everyone here.
    Where would be a good place to go?

    I think I am ready to go also. Brand new western plow and have not used it one single time. Farmers almanac says the end of next week winter storm coming to my region. I hope so. Need to make some cash to pay for christmas.

    Yea, I have a new boss 8' V and spreader and I even bought a bigger truck but I will use it for my lawn and landscape business too. What really sucks is I bought $2,500:eek: in ice treatment thinking that it would snow soon.

    Hell I spent $4,200 on A new Western plow back last January and have not used it one time. I bet it has 2 inches of dust on it. I just can not wait to use it.

    I remember now he lived on Fort Pickens Rd. That was scary in a storm because of being on a hill.

    I have about 10K invested in snow plowing right now not including the truck.

    well, if you seriously plan to pack up and leave, then the snow will definately come. I made sure that I am absolutely ready for snow, and so far it has worked... we haven't gotten any in a while. :)
