    Even less here. Just a coating of slush. Although it appears to be snowing now, but I don't think it is going to accumulate.

    We were suppose to get an inch or less here in central PA and we ended up with around 4 inches! :gunsfiring: No one around here was ready for it including me. :dizzy: The weather guys have been off so many times this winter it is not even funny. :angry:

    Last weekend, when southern MN got 20+" of snow, all day Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we were supposed to get 6-10" of snow.

    I'm less than 100 miles north of where the 20" of snow was, we got 3 flakes.


    Looks like all weatherpeople are off once in a while.

    We got almost 2" of slush--would have been about 4" snow if it was colder. Just enough to plow and salt my big contract, nothing else.

    Its actually about 80% melted now already anyways... and it was a Night From Hell too... :p

    Actually glad its over.

    I plowed 2 inches of slush from 3 to 5:30 in the morning. My house is 20 minutes away had maybe a half an inch.
    I believe this was the last hurrah.
    Time to put it away until next season.
    I really cant complain, this year has been very very good. $$$ payup

    We got about 2'' of slush i was out with my bigger contracts. My street was almost down to pavement but that didn't stop the town from thundering down at 5:30 this morning.

    Up where I am in Vt., didn't see a flake, in the southern part of the state, some people picked up 10-11". That's O.K. by me though. It's been a long couple of months and everything is starting to thaw. Makes a mess this time of year.

    Good thing the weather guys around here don't live there. They probably would have been killed. They javen't been right all year. When it does snow they say its not gonna, and vice versa. They should have just said no snow all year, and would have been wrong only 5 times or so. Well, it hasn't been quite that bad, but pretty darn close. I was lucky to have made more this year than last year. Only 5 times, maybe 6 that we had to plow. Winter HAS been over, you guys are just catching up to the rest of us unlucky ones. :cry:

    Well that's plowing for ya, I guess.

    What a joke!

    I was up at 5 and looked out the window and couldn't believe it. There was nothing!!!!!! So much for "8-12 inches", and you're right, I love how they continue to be wrong and get to keep a job. Must be a nice gig. I will admit though, I wasn't really too disappointed about going back to bed for a few more hours! One more run would've been nice, but it's been a great season and I for one am looking forward to getting out on the deck with a pitcher of margaritas and firing up my grill with a couple of nice 18oz ribeye steaks......YOW!!! :yow!:

    I was suprised to have just a coating after all the hype the night before but I was not upset either. Like John said, it has been a great season. I too am ready for the warm weather.
