    Looks like we are gonna get a major rainstorm with near 50 degree temps. It has been a weird year so far up this way. 2 storms with 2 feet of snow both followed by heavy rain storms and now this!:(

    Bing Crosby had it right,

    I'm dreaming of a White Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know.
    Where the parking lots glisten,
    And children listen
    To hear plow trucks in the snow.
    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write.
    May your days be merry and bright.
    And may all your Christmases be white

    I hope we don't get snow. I would rather not spend a second Christmas in a row plowing. I'd rather be with my family on Christmas day.

    I'm with Gordyo, no snow on Christmas again this year. The wife wouldn't be happy if I have to stay home to plow while she takes our boy to see his Grandparents. Anytime after the 26th is fine though, bring it on.

    T’wis the night before Christmas and all thru the garage,

    not a snowplow was running, not even the Dodge.

    The snow boots where hung on the wall with care

    Hoping Santa would bring a 5 inch snow out of the air.

    The ford was resting not a ping was heard

    The mechanic had grown, a Santa type beard

    The salt spreaders were still clean from the previous year

    And all the drivers found in the corner chugging a beer:drinkup:

    The weather man is stating, we could get a nor’easter

    The almanac is saying “no no not till Easter”!

    The bank is looking at repo’n the Chevy,

    The foreman holler’n, hey time to get busy!

    more next year......send thoughts

    Hey got snow?
    We did, going out at 1AM, so much for drinking a few beers!
    Got 3 inchs of lake effect, was a slow start but got enough to plow finally.

    That's why you have to have contracts that have guaranteed amounts. As far as i'm concerned I would be rolling in the green if it didn't snow an inch all winter. We had one plowable event in December so far and looks like no more as the forecast is above 0C (32F) for the rest of the year. Now only if it stays above 0 (32F) till spring i'll be happy. Not to forget my employees who are paid even if it snows or not, so it's a win-win stuation for me....not to mention the less wear and tear ont he euipment and trucks. NO SNOW NO SNOW!!!!

    O yeah guys switch to guaranteed amounts, it's the best way to go. It covers your costs, keeps your employees happy and you can sleep better at night.
