    Yup, but it looks like we have some good chances for snow coming up in the next few weeks.

    I'd be surprised if it sticks south of 84. Maybe on the grass north of it
    But hey. The weather man is always wrong.
    Who knows.

    Southern Fairfield and southern New Haven now in advisory zone.Only to 6 am though.Looks like rain coming early enough so am conditions should be ok.Might try to sneak a pretreat in and if anyone complains explain I have to be proactive not reactive.(hows that sound lol) They also don't have temps below freezing on coast so this is about as minor as an event could be.We'll see.

    We're prob gonna pre salt an hour before scheduled to fall. Hopefully it will burn off and not freeze up as it falls.
    Slights chance we may have to scrape.

    That's what I'm getting as well in Groton. Rain. And that's not even until 3am.

    Hope you get paid. 1/4 inch of slush and its 40. I did pretreat a few medical places but there zero tolerance. The others had to request and none did. Not pissing customers off over this.

    Looks like some seasonable temps finally,no precept for next 10 days though.(as of right now).Looks like we'll have a 2 month window of plowing, doesn't sound to bad! Be nice to get 10 2" events and a couple extra saltings.

    Exactly, I don't want to piss off anyone either. Fortunately I only do commercials and they too have a zero tolerance.

    Man, wouldnt that be great? Why don't we ever get that lucky? I was looking back at our storms over the past few years this morning. The last really light winter we had was 2011-2012, I believe. We had Nemo is 2013, many large ones in 2014, and Juno last year.

    Seems like this next storm potential may be too warm for our area. Split flow pattern is hard for the models to nail down outside of 48 hours. Stay tuned...:drinkup:
