    I hope it comes, but have a good painting project to finish after the holidays and a huge refinishing job to do plus my regular weekly things I do. A good amount of snow would be more than welcome though.

    I hear you,,, started clearing for a small prking area yesterday....had to stop because theres too much mud. Did a little more today--still too muddy.
    December 10 and no chance of a ground freeze never mind snow. Good news is I need another 2 days to complete this one....looking at rain in the middle of the week.

    Will start burning brush in one month....its gonna be difficult to take when its 45 degrees on Christmas.

    God they are still paving here in my area,almost Christmas and people are getting their driveways sealed I swear it might be a carbon copy of last year.

    Oh well if it doesn't snow we'll just keep on digging ;)

    Yup Normally Excavation for us is shut down now. but Well still digging.
    Big question is if it continues like this, whats going to happen to contract prices next year. Sure the bigger places that know better will be fine, but those smaller contracts, they'll be thinking, "what snow, you did nothing and your charging the same" or something like that.

    yeah, this is getting old. i really like snow and miss it. i remember when snow used to be on the ground for the entire winter, now its snows a foot then gets so warm out it all melts a week later!

    Well if it means anything, the farmers almanac says were getting more snow in january for the illinois area. im just going to keep wishing for snow
