    per my records last season:
    11/27 - 4"
    1/10 - 2"
    1/24 - 5"
    1/27 - 5"
    then snow once (sometimes twice) per week through march 20th...

    so we are a bit behind as of today, but still a lot of time to go. my concern is how mild things have been. but it can all change at a moments notice here in New England.

    should we keep hope alive for this weekend? or is it definitely rain?

    That was a subject At UCONN training class last year. That may not be the correct timing but it is the proper application of the product. It maybe a little heavy but correct! The guy doing the class was for Colorado dot now he runs mass. He clearly related the over use of ice control vs just plow the roads. If a pretreat is done correct it is done just before the snow starts not the day or many hours before! All that happens if applied to soon it will just get bounced to the curb line from the crown of the road. After walking out of the class I made changes to my own program and happy to say he was correct

    I was out tues morning. I recived an email from a new account. I'm part of the building managament team so they will email me all building maintance concerns. So I got the email about the very dangerous conditions in the parking lot and sidewalks!!!!! They went so far as to include a picture! I wish I could post it just for the laugh. So I went there salted and cleared the sidewalks. Than went to the suit to let her know it was taken care of. She comes out wearing 4" heals and a very NICE skirt. I just walked away shaking my head

    23RD & 24TH if it come together(big one)I'm thinking the NAO will really make it a monster and we'll have a blizzard from CNJ to Maine.

    28th need to come west.it's going OTS.Something to keep and eye on.
    i'm looking at the GFS,need EURO to join and them game on.

    Look what Bernie is saying about the GFS and Euro

    Bernie Rayno ‏@AccuRayno 27m27 minutes ago
    @LoDelWayne . slower solution...cutting off southern piece and a better solution for a bigger storm and more snow (than GFS)to me the EURO shows more of a storm
