    Nope not going to be a picture os snow somewhere distant.

    Last night I was running up to Bradley Airport just north of Hartford, CT to pick up my wife and my oldest son who were coming home from visiting her parents. A 9pm just east of Waterbury, CT on 84 I saw two flatbeds with Michigan plates. Want to guess what they had on them?

    At least 20 Boss blades, Vs and trip edges along with assorted cartons on each truck. Tried to get a picture but it was to dark and hard to pace them. Looked nice though.

    So now here's the funny part. Going home about and hours later at the 91-84 interchange in Hartford I see a truck loaded with Fisher blades heading west on 84 coming down from Mass. So I guess the companies are getting the stock out.

    I can't really say as to what I am feeling this year. I have way to much real work to do before it snows. But If i had to guess, No Snow for me this year.
