    Is everyone ready? Might be a long night. My prediction - we will start at 3:00 or 4:00am.

    Why are you plowing tonight, the heavy snow isn't supposed to fall near us until 10am or so tomorrow?

    First night out??? What have you been doing for the last 5 weeks. We have been out every night since a week before Thanksgiving.

    Just getting back from a route check.

    Started snowing in Ellicottville around 8:30pm.
    Olean 9:00pm
    Wellsville 9:30pm
    Swain 10:00pm
    Canaseraga 10:05pm
    Wayland 10:15pm
    Springwater 10:15pm

    About an inch of new snow at my house already. Looks like they may have underestimated this storm by alittle bit. I'm guessing we will be pushing well over 4-6" by morning if it keeps snowing like this.

    Have trucks plowing already in Ellicottville and Wellsville (1-2" on the ground already).

    Rochester crews are here right now scraping off windshields and getting the trucks warmed up. We are out of here at 12:30am.

    Happy plowing boys!:salute:

    We've got 7"+ here in Northern, NJ and it's still snowing a lot! I made my first round already, and I'll do my second round after it stops snowing here (around noon). Good luck, make some seriouspayup!

    At 3:00am Greece had about 2" and I don't plan on plowing until later this afternoon or this evening. I work at Kodak Park and the lots were salted only, not enough snow to plow.

    It never fails.Iv got 65 or so driveways this eason and obviously with only 2 inches last night i didnt plow.

    Dont i just get a cal at 2:30 this afternoon wanting to know whn im comimg to plow?She assures me her driveway has more then 3 inches and its not drifts..solid 3-4 inches of snow.I tell her thats incredible,that somehow in the entire rochester area her driveway alone got 4 inches and evryone else got 2 or less.
    She then tells me well a guy plowed her niehgbor so i should plow her.

    do old people just sit around and think up ways of bothering people?

    Went out this morning at about 3:30am did all my lots and driveways. There was about 3" in north greece and Spencerport. I also had alot of drifting into about 6" on the open drives.
