Hello Brian Welcome to plowsite.
Glad to hear this season is doing well for you, aside from the last being a bust for us, it has been a great season so far. At least 3x the snow as last year already.

Now I hate to wish or appear to wish no snow for any snow lovers out there, but last year it sure was torture to read all of your posts (maybe not you guys specifically, but others' from your areas at least) talking about all the snow you got while we had none here. ;) Welcome to our world last year. This year we can smile over here because we've plowed twice in December, which is very rare here. Have patience, it will come.

Not great up here either

Started out looking like a good winter, had our first (and only) push on November 18. Since then we've had many days of "snow drizzle" with a little freezing rain but nothing to drop a plow for. I was hoping for a better December than last year but no luck. May have a repeat of last year's dismal results.

Chtucker, you are so right about boring work, I worked at our local ski area making snow for 6 years at night from 8pm-8am 7 nights a week, that was fun but when it wasnt cold enough or we had enough snow, they would have a worker come in every night to do small jobs and stuff and the rest of the night you got to ride in the groomer, and wow that was boring looked like alot of fun and was for while but then it was almost like the seat was a bed because within 10mins of sitting in it you were sound asleep, but anyway the pay at any ski area really sucks and the time/work coniditons are not that great, Loved making snow but the job was hard and very cold+wet all for the hihe wage of $9.00 per hour. But we had a lot of fun blasting around on the sleds all night and making huge mountains of snow. Just my two cents

Ski and snowmobile country isn't any fun without DEEP SNOW!Alan and myself totaly missed out the Christmas day storm.It was a real heartbreaker to see that much snow pass just to the south of me.So close I could smell it.:( :mad: :rolleyes:

Arc, I'm in the lowlands near Lake Champlain, about 25 miles or so from the start of ski country. We can see grass everywhere as there is so little snow cover. December precipitation levels are way down and not much in the forecast for the next few days but some freezing rain tomorrow night and rain on Tuesday.

And you're right, Push, it was some depressing watching that storm almost get to us and then get blown back south.

Went out 12/11, 12/24, 12/25, and tonite. Got 2-4". Will be a full route plowing for the first time this winter. Hopefully this is a sign of more snow to come.
Hi Greenworldh20,

Here in BC (Canada that is) we've usually plowed a few times already but this year is looking a little sad. Like others no new dents or scrapes in my blade either :). Looks almost as if I might be able to start spraying dormant oil soon. I'm sure we'll see some snow soon though. . . .I hope . . . maybe. We usually get about 12 plow days in a season. Pretty puny compared to the East, I hardly feel like I should be in this forum with the real plow guys.

No snow here. It sucks. Last year I had been out 8 times by this time. Strange weather. We haven't even gotten lake effect lately. That's usually enough to pay the bills but not this year. NEED SNOW... NOW!!!

So far this year we've probably grossed as much as we did all last winter. Bought a used Western tailgate spreader and has made its money back and than some already. Now enough of the heavy wet nor'easter snows - lets have a few days of thaw so some piles disappear and then how about 2 or 3 4" snowfalls of the light fluffy stuff a week for the next 2 or 3 months. That will really make this a nice plow season.
