    waiting until it accumulates... if I mount plows/spreaders it will definately rain here. I think the only possible accumulations will be on grass anyways...(from Lombard to the South anyways).

    Who knows thou, I love to plow with my new 8.5' Pro-Plus and F350!

    im really not getting my hopes up. I really could use the money though.

    Waiting.......... Raining outside right now, but 1-2" by tomorrow morning for eastern Iowa and 3-6" for northern Iowa. Sure hope I don't have to dig the plow out, it's in the back of the shed and I would have to move every thing to get it out. We'll see, sure would be fun to make some quick cash payup

    We got almost 5 inches of heavy wet snow here...trees down...some melted as soon as it stopped snowing. Still plowed almost 10 hours though. Not bad for APRIL!!
