Isn't it the other way around? Maybe Mother Nature needs to schedule an appointment with Dr Melfi? It's snowing?!?!? 2 1/4" outside now, looks like the plow's going on (3" residential trigger). I really hate such a late season storm with the ground being thawed so well (gravel drives). Whatever...let's plow!!!

We have a foot predicted for tomorrow night, here.

I hate late season storms.... warm ground, subs not available, sidewalk guys can't be found....

Worse yet... Peggy will be in Peoria at ALCA Student Career Days... so, I'm on my own.....

Lets see, I've heard 0", 1"-3" or 3"-6". I guess I am supposed to pick and get back to the weather men. I just drove my new loader out of the garage to scare it away.

Just got a call from my wife saying that one of my lots is starting to get a little accumulation. Will be going on a salt run to check them all. Have put my crew on standby for tonight incase I need to call them in. That should scare it away for sure.

So, John, would you consider standing outside with a big piece of cardboard or something and fanning about six inches of your snow in a southerly direction? 120-130 miles or so should do it. It might help both of us out....

Guess I jinxed it? Went out to check on the accounts and all of a sudden the temperature jumped up a few degrees, snow turned to rain and there was only about 2" everywhere (down from 3"). Hit a few of them to see whats what and ended up doing more damage than good (gravel)! Was trying to at least hit all the seasonals so they didn't think I forgot about them but it all proved useless. Even when you try to do good sometimes it just doesn't work :( And I forgot how much a PITA a daytime snowstorm is!

I really hope winter's over!!!

I think the last plowable event of the season is long past for me - Monday there was snow falling but it warmed up and turned to drizzle, same thing happened today. Just enough snow to make everything wet and messy, and since I weld for a living (outdoors much of the time) I hate wet, messy days! :mad:

Set the "circus tent" up today when it began snowing - tarp over where I was working - so was able to stay dry. :D

Although I have heard the word "snow" in the forecast for later this week I don't think it will amount to anything pushable. The plow is still accessible, though, "just in case"..............

funny type storm. it snowed this morning, rained, and switched back to snow. very localized accumulation wise. both the state and towns were out in certain areas salting and plowing. didnt accumulate much on the roads.

Couple inches here, on the deck where there's no ground heat to melt it. Pavement is still showing through in places. Forecast is for upper 20s tonight. I'll probably just use the little hopper and do a high speed pass during the night, 5-10 lbs/1,000 sf.

Up here in maine were supposed to get about 3-5 inches and although u plowers tend to hate these late storms hear in maine we will take what ever we can get for percipitation due to the drought.

What a wacky system! Absolutely nothing at my house, not on the pavement, nor the grass. After dinner last evening I get two calls from residents 10 miles west, "Did you forget about us?" so playing it cool tell em I'm en route. Saddle up, take a 10 minute ride, lo and behold 3+ inches everywhere so I did 20 residentials and three parking lots before finishing up around midnight.

Coming home, strangest thing, top of hills everyone was completely snow-covered a 1/4 mile down the hill there was nothing...go figure but at least the rent got paid for April and I used up the rest of the winter fuel lol.

8" overnight. What a mess - felt more like driving a bull dozer than a snowplow. Tried lifting the blade about an inch but still would up with grooves. It was so heavy that even the one ton had trouble pushing more than 30-40' worth. Then when I'd angle to push it off, I'd wind up with a rut in the driveway (gravel). Hope that this is the end of it for this season.

Got 6'' by the time I was done there was only 2.5'' of slush. Again no need to salt. Still have half my pile of salt mix, oh well less to buy next year.
