    I'm just going to go out and talk real nice to my plow, so it doesn't feel neglected and load up the trucks with salt, no problem.

    yeah. it was raining this morning at 5am when I went out,
    I thought I 'd just hook up the plow if it gets colder later but it did't the guys at work just bring out the power washer and start washing all the co, trucks..

    I just drove home and it is still raining!! :gunsfiring: where's the cold!!

    We got the cold you got the moisture what a deal. Now if we could get them to come together for a few days. Maybe a big spinner of a storm could happen.

    Fine I’m ready to mow some grass anyway Kip :mad:
    If I wanted snow I could go take the blade off of my mower and put the mower deck back on, then go wash and detail the exterior of my truck, that works every time! I don’t care I’m tired of the cold and just wanna mowww!!!!!!

    Alittle freezing rain here overnight, people going 45 or so on highway in front of my house. parts of my driveway are dry... I think we didn't get much, the other parts look moist.

    Even though ice is no fun compared to snow, I'd rather be out salting and making money than sitting at home NOT making any.:D

    We got 3-4 inches of snow then freezing rain on top (NE Ohio). Made some huge snow boulders with this stuff. They burned through some major amounts of salt on this storm. The City and County guys did a great job for it being a Saturday night. They must need the overtime to pay for Christmas.
