Here's what I've done:

1. Put the plows away.

2. Took the spreader off the truck, and even put my tailgate back on.

3. Snow dance (don't ask)

4. Stood in my driveway with those orange flashlights trying to wave the snow in our direction.

5. Washed the truck.

6. Waxed the truck.

7. Washed the plow.

8. Havn't picked up any more salt in a few weeks.

Nothing has worked. I've been trying to find Mother Natures phone number on http://www.switchboard.com, but I havn't found anything yet. Does she have an e-mail address???

Tim,
I have found Mother Natures number and her answering machine said "Hello this is Mother Nature" and this year is to prove two things.

1. I am running things and you must deal with it!!!

2. Every time you looked up and cussed me for raining on your barbecue, fishing, Nascar race etc. I heard and listened. How do you like me now!!!

LOL

Tim,
I wrote that in good fun but now it is pouring down rain here. Do you think she really listens??
Oh well at least it is precipitation.

Bill,
The only thing I've broken was my lung, and that was a little over a month ago when it actually WAS snowing. As of right now, the truck, the plow, and my spreader are working flawlessly.

Plowjockey,
I think she's laughing, not listening.

Rooster,
I hope that tonight will leave us with at least a plowable amount of snow. As far as getting hurt, I'm not making any promises. LOL

Down here I'm glad that I have some weight in the trucks. We are supposed to get up to 50 mph winds today. Hold on to your hat and hopefully something that is anchored well.

Hey its T-shirt weather hear boys. Had thunder and lightning last night and this morning. All the land mines from the dog are poking there ugly little heads out. Hope we get that freeze tonight, be a fun job for tommorow. Havn't had any pushible snow round hear in quite some time.I guess I should start thinking about pulling the boat out of storage. That would be sure bet for at least 2 more good snowfalls.

I wouldn't get the boat out just yet. I just (100:00 A.M. Ohio time) looked at the weather (or not) Channel and it looks like all the junk is right on your doorstep or will be soon. Y'all have fun with the temp. drop turning you into "the frozen tundra".

Like I told Mike I would like some snow but it is probably for the best that I don't have it. I got a virus (human not computer) and I think global warming has gone to my head.

Next time we get snow I am trucking to you guys!
I don't want anymore snow.Starting to rain today and suppose to get into the high 40's. We have had snow on the ground since Dec.29th.This is the longest I had ever seen it stick around!
P.S. Maybe you could get big fans and change the jet stream.:eek:

Please do... and point them my way.
I swear I'm about to change my "handle" to Snowless in Ohio. Gee maybe this would make a good movie title.

"Snowless in Ohio"
Yes it does sound like a good movie title.
Just wondering what the plot might be "you don't have any snow and you fall in love with a guy that does" :eek"
Just wondering!

No I think it would be more like, since it rained last night, no snow stuck and stranded in the mud. Then, heaven forbid, have to call the wife to bring out the 4X4 to get me out. Ohh woe is me!!!

HEY MIKE, IT GOT PRETTY WINDY HERE YESTERDAY. MY SALT TRUCKS DIDNT BLOW AWAY BUT My outside salt bin sure took a beating. My tarps were going everywhere. Finally gave up trying to secure it over the pvc frame and laid it over the bin.

Well plowjockey and myself could really use some snow. send us some over this way. Seven day forecast shows rain on thursday. O well who listens to the weather people.
