    Same here in Ohio. Have the plow off for the year. I hope I don't get calls from customers. This was my first year and I shut it down the end of March. Suppose to rain later and be 60 degrees on Wed..
    Not sure what I'll do if someone calls. I guess if it's an emergency, I might rig her up again.

    It's official, this has been the snowiest winter in NE Ohio on record. 105.3 inches as of 10 pm last night. Went out to push some drifts around, still extremely windy. Steady 15 mph gusting to 50+ mph. Late season snows are usually not big $$ cause it melts faster than you can get to it.

    I ended up reloading the truck and digging out the plowl, had it buried. I'm glad I got out and made some cash, now that I'm in. I put the plow away last week forgetting I wanted to use it to turn up a small garden. I wont make this mistake next year.

    Have one or two drives to do this afternoon but I think it safe to say winter is really over now. Suppose to hit 70 Wed. and we are going to still have this stuff to look at.

    Got about 4" - 5" in western Pittsburgh. Ambient temp ws 32, and ground temp was about right where I didn't need to drop plow on my customers. Blacktop melted it down quick enough.

    I see Erie got 12". my wife was stranded in Western NY (Jamestown) when they closed down the west end of I-86 for a while.

    I plowed the whole route once, and commercial stuff twice. Good money but very hard on equipment. Heavy wet slop.

    Today it is well above freezing again and it is melting quick.
