    Its all over for us southeast massachusetts contractors! You can put me on record for making the call on 2 25 10. Revenues for us down by 50% compared to last winter! Oh well, there's always next winter correct?

    Maybe the Federal Government will bail you out. It seems to be a pattern now.

    You think you're alone in this pal...??? Here in S.W. Ct - nothing....I theorise that Connecticut sucks so bad, we can't even get a snowstorm to hit. Almost every storm either goes North or South of us. This crap has been going on all winter long. I'm sitting at home - ready to go .....what do we have? Rain. And the bozo weather guessers should be fired....They are inept, and they are clueless..... The guy on channel 3 (today - Thursday) was current giving snowfall totals THRU WEDNESDAY! WTF! These bafoons can't even get the day right.......:realmad:

    This winter was not a complete dud, we had some snow. 1993 was the worst winter i have ever worked, we mounted up once to push 3" of slush, that was it! Three years later (1996) we got 112". You just never know what winter will bring, snow can make you or break you.

    Well its an emotional roller coaster.................. Last year we had 207" and every other storm was 18-24" now this year it started out ok till Jan 15 and then it just flat lined ................. I think we have had like 40" all year. March can be a big month for us but it never lasts and this year the ground is already unfrozen; so its going to be interesting to say the least. We are going to be down around 60% this year from the looks . A normal year here is like 120" so last year got us spoilt! But 40" that just is a tease!

    Thats crazy cause we had record breaking snowfall and I stayed busy almost all winter. The last time we had a winter like this year was 1993!

    Pittsburgh & boston are quite a distance apart, its not unusual for us to have very different winters.

    Oh yes I know you guys usually always get more, I just found it odd that our 2 busiest snow seasons were your 2 slowest

    Why? It's logical. When the jet stream stays further south you guys get snow. When it's more normal, it comes north, you don't see as much snow, but we get it up here.
