no snow here!

Our forecast was rain wednesday night during to snow around 12am. we were supposed to get 1-3" of snow on the pavement. Before i went to bed, i check ed the temperature and it was 40 degrees. woke up this morning hoping for some snow and see nothing. what a dissapointment. i heard new jersey got the snow, mayb Tim10 75, chuck or BRL got some play. forecast is for snow/rain on tuesday and wednesday i think.

3 more inches this morning.

Sorry guys.

We just sent out our invoices for last week (up to and including today). You'd be drooling if you knew where the decimal point is located....... record breaking November revenue month...

Youre in Fairfield Co right? Forecast was NEVER for 1-3 on pavement, the stations who traditionally overdo it forecast up to 3 but most others were predicting rain. We did get 2 inches in Hartford Co but it all stuck to the grass nada on paved surfaces.

Better luck next time!!!!

Flurries here in VT, all day. Not a flake to be seen on the ground as it was 35 or so and it even melted on the grass. It's still snowing lightly now, so if the temperature drops overnight I may get to shake a little salt in a few places but that will be about all.

we had two to three inches of snow and slush, just enough to scrape all the commercial accounts and sand. its nice to have a little storm or two to make sure everything is up to snuff in the beginning instead of getting hammered and having lots of problems with equipment or help

Rain changed over to snow at 6 am, and by 7 am we were getting slush on the paved surfaces. By 9 am we had all
accounts salted with magic salt, and they all melted off with in 10 min of application.
Now I dont know if it was the fact that the ground was still warm, or that the stuff works that well. But anyway the results were great.

i had Magic salt in the back of the truck and i drove thru the lots and the rain and slushed just melted away. i did not even spread it had just kept it in the truck. melting rain its a great gig if you can get it. i am really looking forward to melting snow and ice. that sweet sugar smell of magic makes people hungry i think i'll sell donuts on the side. Good luck and good melting

Steve you just have to get after it quicker. We actually had to plow up in the I park. That hill gets more snow than down in the valley that you plow. Unlike you I provide the highest level of service, and it takes a special type of service provider to melt all that rain. hehe

It started raining around 7 pm and change to snow around 11 pm but it never stuck to the pavement. Did not even get to spread some magic salt. It was very disappointing.

It may be a go here by morning! Snow is still falling, slowly but steadily, and starting to cover the pavement. Temperature is still just above freezing and due to drop so it may be just enough to justify trying out the new spreader at about 4 AM.

OK John,

Don't rub it in. Not all of us are fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time with the right weather conditions. Sounds to me like Erie is the snowplowers Nirvana.


By the way, my plow is on the truck, and we haven't had a flake fall in my area.

Talk about being depressed !!!
