    So how much you guys get so far this year ? I guess the Yoopers up in Keweenaw Penninsula have over 100" so far this year.

    Well in the Middle of the Upper Pennisula of Michigan we have got about 50" of snow so far. Nothing in the last few days...only cold weather.

    I love the UP. I was planning on going up to my pop's property before snow season down here started, but its to late now. His property is in Silver City, an acre on lake superior. I love it up there in the Winter, but I hate it in the summer, lol. I love the snow up there. Its awsome when those huge waves freeze. Plus, everyone who lives up there is soooo nice!!! Someday I want to move up there. But im moving to Kalamazoo (south western part of the state) for college next year, and they get a ton of snow.

    Let it snow fellas.

    Petoskey got like 10" and was calling for another 10". Just down the road in Walloon Lake, I got 1 1/2" that first day and wondered what all the fuss was about till I went to work. But then I got two 6" dumpings. So far this year Ive used the little plow more than I did all last season. Works great too.

    With all that snow and plowable events, not even including de-icing/sanding, you guys,even with the supply and demand aspect of the business, must make and absolute killing.
    Or are your triggers much higher since the people are so used to so much snow, and is the price for a driveway so much cheaper that it pretty much evens out?

    Ya the plowing trigger is much higher, if I was going to use a 2" trigger I would be plowing non stop most of the winter. Not too mention people wouldn't have me plow any more, they couldn't afford it. The last storm with 12" of snow I plowed 1/2 twice and 1/2 once, other then the businesses.
