    Boy I hope this does happen now. If not all the weathermen will have to go into hiding from all the people hunting them down. :waving:

    Blizzard warnings for central Illinois now. At that rate of snowfall, hopefully some will stick to the pavement. Our moisture starved storm last week could barely turn the grass white. Good Luck:salute:

    No snow yet but NWS still has a heavy snow warning out for us. Locals have given less amounts this morning. :dizzy:

    Correction 9:25 the first flakes are starting to fall.

    we got a pretty good snow fall, but its really iffy to plow or salt, i haveben driving to accounts, some are good to go and others arent, just depends on what kind of pavement they got down

    Well, pavement is wet and black. Grass has snow on it. Be lucky to drop salt later on at this pace. Not doing anything at the moment. Radar looks like some more to come but who knows.

    I guess on the other hand spring cleanups still can be started later this week when this melts off.

    I hear the same thing with this storm as I heard last week with ours. We went all the way to winter storm/heavy snow warnings and we got a whopping 0 on the pavement. :angry: A couple of inches on the grass. Storm did the same thing died out...It wanted revenge on the weatherman that was predicting 9".:gunsfiring: I actually took that one seriously, I figured with 9" predicted at least we would salt. Loaded 35 tons into 5 trucks and NOTHING. Hats off to the weatherguessers :mad:

    I'm happy I got to plow and salt this morning and made $1600 so I feel a little better about buying the plow and 5 skids of salt back it October.

    Another complete flop.............as soon as we hit the trigger......it started melting off....I checked a couple of customers and they were melting off...... I am ready to be finished with snow now this year, not that I ever really got to get started.
