    I just pulled up the farmers almanic online, the little 2 month tease, and it said that the first week of november we have a chance of accumlating snow. Then a few more times throught the month. That would be nice for a change. :D

    When I saw your first post I thought here we go again :angry:

    I was thinking the same thing. Nice spot with the 06/07 dates. F.A. predicts cold and stormy weather for us in Nov with chances of snow and rain. Im being patient after the last 2 years we got ripped off.

    The last 2 years were a big bust. 2 years ago we had a great december with somthing like 9 salts, then the wheels came off, and the rest of the year was a let down. I hope this year is better than the last few.

    Ive heard both, Ive heard that its suppose to be cold and snowy in the northeast and Ive heard that e are suppose to have a mild and slushy winter. I tend to go with the farmers almanac predictions. They are usually pretty reliable. Hope for the best.

    DO YOU MEAN IN ONE YEAR?

    If so Which year? Do you wait for snow before you plow or just replace cutting edges often and the 23 salts do you mean you used 23ton or 23 differ events,

    The only reason i am confused is because here south of K.C. we got more snow that K.C. and i think we only plowed 3-4times and about that many salting events

    Where in K.C. are you at

    But back on Q' Bring the snow on i think we'll not have a good of year as last but more snow than normal (8"-12")

    He could be right. 2 years ago, my buddy 40 miles south of me plowed 16 times, I plowed 7.

    Last year, guys in IA had 20+ plowings, I had 10 events here in MN.

    We have left the main shop here and salted less than an 1", where Dad has left the other shop 12 miles South of us and had 2-3" on the ground and had full plow event, At the same time our route that is 20mins north a plowable event.
