    I was looking at my logs for last year and we had only plowed 3 times by this point, it was from now until the middle of February that our butts left their impressions on our seats.:D

    The one bright side to the forecast is the freezing temps at night, good excuse to lay down some salt.

    We are getting much the same up here. We go for period of somewhat cold weather and one snow storm. Then we get 4 degree celsius weather and rain. Sucks because it washes all the salt residue off the lots each time.

    I've also noticed a lot of pavement heaving because of the thaw freeze thaw freeze and my rodadenruns sp? already have buds coming out on them.

    Some places get some and some don't. We have plenty of snow at the moment.

    I'd rather have a 4 inch storm than a 12 inch. I charge per plow, not per inch. And when I plow a 4 inch storm, less wear and tear on the trucks.

    We've plowed 7 times so far. Last year I didn't have a plowable event until Feb. 3.

    I am seriously thinking about taking the spreader off my truck, take the curtis cab off the kubota and put the plows and blowers away for everything I own. Since I am not using any of them. Might as well dig out the mowing equipment and get it ready to use. Since we might start cutting grass in two weeks.
