    Careful what you wish for???

    That would just suck!! Although there seems to be a good chance according to my man Paul on TWC. As much as I want it to snow, and as much as I like to plow, this is just not a convenient time.
    Day before or the day after would be fine, or even on New Years.
    I started this thread in hopes to jinx the snow gods, or atleast postpone this event thats going to happen Chrstmas Day. The bottom line here is, if it snows, I plow. The wife is thrilled!!

    A Happy & Safe Holiday to All and your Families!!

    Bring it on Mother Nature

    Don't hold back old man winter

    (There, that should do it)

    Merry Christmas!!!

    after the past few years being pretty pathetic as far as snow goes for us in S.E. PA, ill take what i can get when i can get it. wont be plowing x-mas eve due to family events, but wouldnt mind a little plowing on x-mas day. wouldnt go out until afternoon anyway and then plow all night to have everything opened up first thing thursday morning.

    The only good thing is that most of our accounts are closed but we would still have to do about 1/3 of them, and that would still suck, but hey we will deal with it, going to be tough getting the guys out on Christmas day probably only be 1/2 a crew but would be able to get it done and then do the rest on Christmas night so they would be all ready for the next day. Never had to plow on christmas day, had to salt a few times, and had to plow a few times on New Years. Really dont want to miss my daughter opening her presents but she would understand. OH well nothing you can do about when it snows. Just my two cents

    x-mas presents


    Just think with any luck one year you can watch her open the door on her x-mas present and have her out there with you when it snow's. Lot's of familys up here have everyone in a vehicle or with a snowblower helping out. Then they take off other day's together if the holiday is a WHITE-OUT ( WHITE=GREEN) your right on

    My niece keeps asking to come to the shop and help....Ok with her mom it gets her out of the house and gives her some free time. I'm thinking she'll do a good job filling parts orders and helping answer question in a couple more years.

    Her dad's already taught her what tools to use to fix her Barbie jeep and other Electric toys. Had to buy her her own tools and tool box this year. Now she want's a plow for the front of her pick-up...............Trying to find a 2' Blizzard plow for her.

    Hope everyone has a good holiday and is blessed with friends, family and snow

    It has been three weeks since the lsat event, so its time to get going again. The snow business is a fical mistress, but you have to make hay while the sun shines, or something like that.

    Yea sure would be nice to have a white christmas. It keeps saying that we are susposed to have a wintry mix with all sorts of crap so I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens but lets hope for the best and thats 6 inches of powder!:D

    Snow for Christmas will really screw up my plans, we have company for dinner and I cook. I'll do the plowing, but at my schedule. I'll take a couple hours here and there to meet my family obligations, then serve the customers. These modern phones that you can turn off the ringers are pretty handy sometimes...

    If it must come Christmas Day the good news for me and my crew is that the college kids left for Christmas Break last Thursday so the campus is empty till the middle of January so at the most I would have to go in and just open up the main roads and some of the major sidewalks so Public Safety can get around. Other than that the rest can wait till Thursday or Friday. I can always break out the loader and the backhoe if we get hammered so I won't bother trying to keep up with the storm with the trucks on the big lots cause noone needs to use them till they get back so I have plenty of time to clear them.

    Hey Jerre

    How bout that not a bad idea! Let's say a 2-45 A blizzard thats 2' that expands to 4'6" then I can put it on my 4 wheeler for my 15 yr old son to do sidewalks with. Hope it snows but as long as I can have until 4pm to do the family thing. I have to be home Christmas morning it's my daughter's first Christmas!

    Ok, went out & picked up 20 bags of salt today. Think I'll just keep 10 or so on the truck. Load the blower & shovels. Have to check the forecast. I may have to go out & hook up the plow. That should do it. Worked all last winter

    I wouldn't mind going out christmas afternoon, after lunch and stuff but i don't realy want to be out all night christams eve and morning. A few hours chistmas eve wouldn't be too bad though. I guess we'll see what happens, we realy do need some more snow. Yesturday they said rian/snow then wintery mix now snow. Who wants to bet we get all rain?

    Bring it on. From what I've heard so far they're talking Wednesday afternoon into the night. Plenty of time to open presents...eat, say hello to all the family and then get the heck out of there. I'm only going to have about 3/4 of the crew, two guys on vacation and a couple more questionable as to if they'll be in town on Christmas. It'll be a long night but I'll live and they guys that stick it out all inght with me will have a Merry Christmas when they get paid on Friday!!

    I've never seen snow on Crhristmas before, this wil be something new.

    well i don`t know what you guys are talking about in connecticut.going to be rain boys northwest hills are getting the snow so if your in hartford and to the left lol lol you should have a white christmas.as for myself living down by the shore looks like i`ll be home for christmas going over how much money i need to borrow from friends to keep things runing here.perfect time to ask family members for some extra cash lol.well im still hopeful that will get tons of snow down by the shore,but its wishful thinking i guess.
