    Well this week looks like a bust for the north east.... Jetstream coming out of canada and swooping down and out toward the atlantic..... bringing all this cold DRY air.

    They dont expect it to change much untill later next weeek....

    Pack It Up!

    Im going to give it another week or so, if we dont get anything plowable by 2 15, snow gear is going to start to make its way to the back of the shop as york rakes,brush hogs and spray rigs make their way foward. What good is winter without snow?

    Heh all 6 of our trucks stay ready. Everything is ready to roll on a seconds notice, sort of depressing seeing everything all geared up, and lined up just sitting. Oh well... all of our spring stuff is in 100% repair, everything was painted, de rusted, and serviced, even our fall clean up gear could go out tomorrow :dizzy: LOL running out of things to do for the rest of this month.

    one thing we made sure to do was get out to sand some of these light storms so we atleast are garenteed to be able to sweep come spring payup payup

    Im not worried about missing the boat, i can be up and running in an hour. Its getting to the point that we really dont want the snow. Snow works for us in dec,,jan & feb. March & april snow just cuts into the green season.

    Upstate New York is getting hammered with the lake effect because the great lakes are not frozen. The cold air comes over and picks up the moisture off the lakes and dumps it on them. If the lakes were frozen that would not happen.
