    Hey all big cool down coming to the northeast, highs might not get out of the low 40's in NJ. But they are also expecting a big lake effect snow event, so get ready guys!:redbounce

    It will not happen:cry:
    The air out of Canada will be in the 40's and the lake temps have not dropped much.
    It will be a cold rain at best.

    Booooooooo! Bring on the SNOW! Just let me get the salt shakers going first.

    I haven't even ordered salt yet! I am going to pick up a few pallets tommorow, just in case.

    It seems like it's going to be a good year for us ohio guys, at least from what I have seen.

    Come on SNOW! Bossman

    Maybe in a couple of weeks then let it snow. There is nothing worse than doing fall clean ups in 40 degree wet weather.

    Just the ranudom flake or two around hear.

    Present air temp is 45.5
    Bar, rising
    Sky, mostly cloudy
    Winds, W. at 23mph
    Over night lows in the mid 20's

    The South shore or N.WI in to the U.P. may see some snow if this front passes by over night.

    The temps with this front will warm up as they pass over the Lakes.
    I predict most of the precept to fall as rain or freezing rain over night..
    Possible Salt event , maybe...

    The next front is too warm also.
    That is fine for right now at least we are in a wet pattern. The temps will fall this month.
    We should have plowable snow by thanksgiving.

    Hey, why not give a prediction?
    The weather people can and their wrong .;) And they get to keep their jobs....

    We saw a small amount of wet snow on Sunday morning but not enough to stick. I need a bit of time to prep my trucks, get my salter reinstalled and stake out my properties, firm up a couple of contracts and decide on another small snow contract a little bit out of my way. The general feeling is big amounts of snow up here. We had a hot, superdry, summer and a warm fall. The big bodys of water are warmer than usual and lately it has been wet, once the temp dips, look out or you'll get caught. tymusic

    Still to early to tell. but if it does it will have to snow like hell to stick because the ground is very warm yet.. but if it does come .. we will just deal with it.

    I heard it for myself today...."rain changing to snow for Tues,Wed,Thurs,Fri." Who knows. I finally found 3 decent guys to plow so it wont snow at all yet. Now if I were still looking....we would be the guys getting the 6" or so. Finally got my stakes now just have to put a little paint on them and pound'em in. I still am not getting my hope's up, then it just pisses me off when it doesnt snow.

    my "season" is technically in effect Nov 1. Id love to be out spreding salt cause its freezing rain.. Then the phone will ring for all those contracts that are out and not signed. Plow is not ready, need a good few hours. Tornado is ready to go however.
