I realize this will vary from area to area... but who thinks we're done for the season. Personally, I don't remember EVER getting what I would consider a plowable event in March, and it's creeping up on us fast. What about you?
The *most* plowable event I remember was in March. I think it was 93. My uncle marched in the St' Patricks Day parade and when he got back to his car he couldn't get it out of where he'd parked it for 3 days. (Well, now that I think of it, that might just have been because he's Irish, but there was a lot of snow too.)
After the snow began I was out for 30 out of the next 36 hours.
As far as the poll goes, if there were a choice of "It's not done yet, but at this late date, even if it does snow, I don't have a snowball's chance in heck of turning a profit this season", I'd have chosen that one.
Pineisland1 is East of me and has had twice as much snow. (their average is lower than mine ) I have had one more plow though and am still hoping for a few more storms. In past years I can remember plowing many times in March.
We've had about 12-inches of snow this season. I think we average about 36-38. Very sad. By the way, here's a nifty little site I came across if anyone's interested. It'll tell ya how much snow you've had month-to-date or season-to-date.
JD, around here they called that storm "Snowbud", many of my neighbors were without power for a week and many roads were impassable due to downed trees. That one scared me, I kept waiting for a tree to fall on me, didn't happen.
I was down to a t-shirt today. I try to be optimistic, but this past week's weather has me thinking about prepping the lawn equipment. I was looking at the maple buds yesterday and they're swelled up pretty good.
Done? Hell, when did we ever start? We've been done even before the season started. In all reallity sakes, it was a BIG waste of money to get the trucks ready, plows preped, salt stored, blowers tuned up, etc. But then again if we weren't ready, we would've had bucu amounts of snow all over the northeast. But I really think this winter is done. Let the mulching begin!
Since i rent a tractor for the january 31 event, snow had disapear. We got a lot of precipitation but was rain. snow is now over quebec city (remember we were on the list with salt lake) up to the east coast, they have a lot of snow and storm.
Around here st-Pats always bring a storm and my birthdays is in early april and was busy with snow often. but it will be the kind of snow who disapear 1-2 days after.
Powerbroom is ready fo clean up, did it in a hurry yesterday night. I got a mini flood in the garage with all this rain falling over the thick layer of ice in my driveway, all the water goes under the doors. First time i had to sweep water with it and It save me a lot of trouble. The concrete is old, uneven and some"pieces" are missing. So my regular Squigee failed on the job. I'm very happy because temps has drop and there is no heater in the garage.
Sharpen blades, change the mower oil, and start your mulching. I'm going to order 500 yds of mulch and have it delivered to my house just for spite. ( no not really) But seriously, my equipment is off the trucks and I'm not looking for it to snow untill next season. Not that I don't want it to but, I have to face reality that this winter didn't have any snow and that's it.
