• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Being that Chrismas is still 4 weeks away, why are you starting to believe them now?

In that part of the country you only have 60% white Chrismas' anyway.

I'm not too worried. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that the weathermen can't even predict what suit they're going to wear the next day... let alone the weather. It'll snow. Maybe not this week, but it'll snow.

I think I've only seen a white Christmas 3 or 4 times. Relax! Any way it'll definitly snow the last week of December, I'm going on a Caribean cruise, Oh dear I can just see the phone bill now, I'll be calling home every ten minutes.

Look, if we don't get that much snow this year, just take it as a nice break. There isn't a thing we can do about it. One thing is for certain,,, It will snow,,, and bad winters are ahead. Getting anxious just makes them seem longer getting here!

Mother nature evens thing out in the end. For all the lean years we are given the occational "Mother of all winters".

Anymore?? When did they? (Actually, to be fair about this, when they say "the sun willl rise at <some specific time> and set at <some specific time>...", they're damn near right on the mark every day. It's amazing.)

I've learned to watch, not the specific forecast, but but the *tendency* in the forcasts. In other words, if they start out in the five day forcast saying there's a chance of a BIG storm next week, and as it gets closer they say "4-8 inches", then later "3-5 inches" then later "2-4", it'll turn out more than likely to be a salt run and the plow won't even touch pavement. It works in the other direction too. If my memory serves me correctly the big storm of '93 started out as a forecast for a BIG 4-8 inches and we ended up with a couple feet.

Anyone else noticed this?

The best weatherman you could have, [seen it at a flea market years ago ]. You can easily make one yourself. All you need is a thumbtack & a piece of yarn. hang outside your door. If it is wet, then your forecast is rain, If it's white W/ ice, then it's snowing, and if it's sways from side to side, [ you guessed it ] it's windy.
Never fails. I have turned to this, after last year when "THEY" said the mid atlantic were to get 2 big Nor'easters last year, and we pretty much in Maryland were lucky to get 2" or flurries.

RJC is right. you cant be far from me here in St. Paul, MN and we had a load of snow last year - remember.
Enjoy this while you can because sooner or later you will get your snow.

After last season all my customers were horny for the monthly price so, I too do not mind the lack of snow; I'm still getting paid!!
