    well its feb. 21st.and i'm going nuts. i have only plowed 5 times since 1-1. we are down over around 80" of snow fall to date.who would have ever though cutting edges would have rust on them in northern michigan in feb. its been in the teens and low 20's for weeks, perfect for snow but nothing.. the only thing keeping me going is my seasonal contracts. making good money on them this winter :) but not worth the no snow in the gas and oil field plowing. we are on a course to go from 200" of snow to this year maybe getting 90" and we had almost 50" of that in december in a weeks time.
    hows everyone else up here hold up?
