    Depends who you listen too. I hear its going to struggle to bring much snow past NYC. Anywhere south of that looks to get hammered

    Been quite a few "disappearing" long range storms so far.Be nice to have a weekend storm though,not sure if I remember how to plow.Have to laugh at the reports that have actual totals this far out.

    as of right now, the weather that they are talking about is actually over the Pacific ocean. It is not until it is over the west coast that forecasts will start to get more reliable (as their models get more data than when they r over water). I don't start to get excited until we are 48 hours out.

    His last 7 model runs are consistent. The Euro is the most accurate model for the Atlantic Coast storms. I have followed him on fb for 3 years....he gets a few wrong, but this time I think he is right.

    How do I connect my plow wires? Big wire to Big wire and Little wire to Little wire, right?!

    I finally spread some salt last night.

    ***WAIT, does that photo actually say 26" for Delaware? I've been reading around 5-6" for Friday and Saturday.

    I can't believe I didn't hear about it until I saw that model. I had read 1-3" friday and 3-5" saturday. But everything has been ready to go so no worries at the moment.

    Hope So

    We have been plowing for the last 3 days in western MD. Nothing big but enough to keep busy. So damn cold salt wont work. I hope we get 3 feet with 70 mph winds. Been a lousy winter for the white stuff so far. Good luck to everyone.:yow!:

    Sounds like a party for you guys. I hope you at least get some work. The storms following the southern jet have been loaded with moisture this year. We got hammered with ice and concrete a couple times. Once it all started it hasn't stopped either, we've been busy for over a week now. Good luck all!!

    Not bad at all. No one should be excited about that.
