    I don't know why but I am always amazed with these weather people. Yesterday they said rain in the 50's for the next 5 days. Today they predict several inches of snow tomorrow. The plow is off, all the wires are tucked behind the grill. If I put the plow back on it will not snow for sure. If I don't put it on it will snow.

    We've all begged for snow all winter, and now that we're ready for spring, it's going to finally snow. :angry:

    Unfortunately for me, most of my driveways are dirt!!! The only good thing is mine is paved. :D This could be a HUGE mess!!!! Can you imagine trying to plow a foot of heavy wet snow on top of 6 inches of mud!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm hoping for rain at this point. I'm on the coast, so I've got the best chance of rain.

    Two inches would be nice. Trigger would be met on commercials but not residential. Watch out for curbs too. They pop awful nice in March:realmad:

    Here in CT they're calling for 3-6 but if storm track changes could be 5-10. I predict the whoops it went south weather pattern:)

    Oh, yeah.

    It's gonna suck plowing.

    I have all dirt drives, one is a mile long.

    Melted snow, frost free muddy drives?

    At this point, It's not plowing, out here, we call it landscaping.

    But hell, it's more snow. And I could charge em double for the grading :)
