    Maybe, just maybe, all our praying is paying off. Looks like the weather guessers are almost all in agreement for snow for Phiily area and here in South Jersey for....dare I say it...SNOW!!!!!!Looks like 3-6" possable, with the good old, maybe more, maybe less. Might it be, I will try out my F250 and see what it does? Might I get to use my new quad as well? Will I finally use up the calcium from last March?????Here's hoping this isn't a cruel trick and we get the snow Saturday. Lets see, the church has mass on Saturday @ 5?6?and/or 7?Then again Sunday morning 7?,8:30?, 10,12? This must be a dream First snow and then on the busy days, wow...stay tuned..

    spent the morning mounting the plow and spreader. Waiting for my two pallets of calcium to get here. Anytime now. If they dont show im gonna be at HOMe Depo ASAP cleaning them out. Anyway looks like all the elements are in place for a decent snow. Ahhh well it'll be nice to drop the plow and push that first looooong push. Alright good luck to all my fellow marylanders and to all our buddies north of us.

    looks like 3-5 inches here. still they say the track could go a little farther north which would up totals. so that must mean we will get a dusting:D . time will tell.

    Well we've changed from the Watch to the Warning now. 5" - 9" predicted for here. Hopefully they're half right this time. So far this season they've been 100% Incorrect for each potential event here. Everyone have fun & be safe if you're lucky enough to be in this one's path.

    Looks like it is on the way. Workers coming in at 11 to go over everything and take trucks home. This should be the first real use of everything this year.

    :( I hope the "storm" gathers more moisture before it heads your way. Our 1-3 inches? maybe if I push the whole driveway I may end up with 3 inches!

    hope the picture showes up right!

    Snowing now. Looks like 2-4 maybe? with it ending after midnight. Couldnt come at a better time, most places will be done by sunup if predictions are correct, then have a leisurely Sunday with businesses closed to do the final mopup.

    Snow started around 1pm, had a fire call, and snow was just starting to stick to the road. When i left work at 5pm, i plowed the lot for practice, we had about 1" on the ground, and some ice under it. Went to get paid for a dump run i did yesterday, put some gas in the truck and tomorrow at 6am i start the accounts.

    We were getting 1-3" as of the noon news, at 2pm I put the plow back on and loaded the blower.
    At 5pm I plowed my two commercial lots, and again at 7pm. It was snowing well over an inch/hr for a while.
    Came back watched the NE-OAK game and now at 12:30 am we have about 5" total.
    It's time for a nap, and then up to run through everything.

    snow, nice rig.
