    Any good sites for snowfall totals? It used to be easy enough to find the totals I needed for each snow event, but that seems to have changed! What do you guys use?

    I just write down how much snow is in the lot when I get there. Is this a good idea?

    I use National Weather Service trained spotter information from surrounding towns as well as measuring my self. I have seen several inches difference in only a few miles of distance. Like this last storm we had. It was 6.9 inches in one area and 15 miles away it was 9.2 inches. Doesn't sound like much in snow but it might be in dollars depending on how you set up your contracts. Plus you have official "trained spotter" information to back you up if anyone ever question's you.

    Go here:

    then click your state
    then click "public information"
    Scroll down and find your closest town during snowfall's

    Tell me about it! My St.Charles route had 8+....W.Chicago route 6....Arl Hts 4-6...Lk Zurich 6.5. It's all over the board! I have my guys measuring too, but with a storm like this it's nice to have backup paper work! Thanks for your help!

    Weather works....Its not cheap but also not overly expensive...They do give a meteorologist report which is nice to send along with your invoices.

    Our weather is all over the place also.

    I got a blonde downtown that has cankers and can't really do the high heal thing, she just wears flats, so when she's ankle deep she rings us up and it's time to go to work.

    The redhead on the south side, she's a fiesty one, them four inch heals with open toes, her toes get damp and she's all over it.

    Now the cross dresser on the north side, he's plain good for nothing.

    We do the same thing Dieselboy. Every push gets measured. Works for me....never had a complaint. It nice submitting a professional report when you have snow totals at 10+ inches. Especially when accumulations very from town to town!
