    Temps dropping down last week of Dec.

    My ace in the hole says looks like no snow till Jan.

    Used it last year and pretty much 95% of the time I knew when we were getting snow 3 days in advance even when our own weather forecast said no.

    As soon as I see it I well post

    Even if we get 3-5 on Tuesday the ground is way to warm its all going to melt. It would have to come down hard and fast.

    I would be happy as a pig in sh!t if it didn't snow at all....but I am a carpenter with a ton of work. I know that a lot of u guys are landscapers with winters counting on snow only.
    This year, about 80% of my $$ is seasonal, so I would rather just let the checks roll in and NOT head out.
    Adding to that...my new 8611LP is still at Jerre's. Been 4 months now. I still have my X Blade on my '02 but the Blizzard is so much more productive. I am starting to get nervous as hell about that as we head towards jan. When u r using your backup truck...you don't have much backup for THAT!.
    I am using the mellow weather to do much needed improvements to sander and new truck. Not bad I guess.

    Oh come on with these snow totals.
    Where the heck are you guys seeing this forecast ?..
    I've only seen chance of ice on Tuesday. Warm to start and warm temps to finish.


    Post a link please.

    Weather channel shows 40 degrees on Tuesday. Chance of ice to start since it will be cold Monday night but changing to all rain. Then 47 on Wednesday.
    Even if we get an icy start. You think it will stick with warm ground temps. ..?

    Good point! Since this is a new ct only thread maybe we can try to start off being realistic and less sensational with expectations! That southern ne thread last year drove me crazy lol!Every storm was forecast to be a 3 footer lol heres a nice reasonable analysis - http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=165301

    Wow my source changed quickly.

    If our temps were not high, the above would be good as it is, rain is what we are getting.

    The 30th, 31st into the 1st should have been good for a 4-8 inch storm but again it is looking like rain.

    I jumped the gun should have known better and wait till the day in question and that is what I am going to do from now on.

    Rule of thumb is if it snows in this place, we get the same snow 2-3 days later.

    Last year it worked about 90% of the time, it got wonky in March and two storms they got we got rain.

    Man a nice 4-8 inch storm would be nice before the new year.

    GET COLDER DARN IT. :mechanic:

    Looks like a location deal on this one.Not much for swct.Maybe a mon evening presalt run,blow out last years leftover and get a nice dec billing.Hard to imagine that an inch could actually stick with no below freezing temps for weeks and a strong easterly wind off the 50 deg sound.
