    Are you kidding me??? We had to plow a couple of accounts this morning. They had 2 inches in them. All my other stuff is closed. This is ridiculous. What happened to global warming?

    Its only April 8th. We have been plowing for 4 days now, well over 14" on the ground and still pounding. Plowing on Easter is nothing, its when you have to plow 16" on Mothers Day like 5 or 6 years ago that it really sucks.

    Thanks Lawncare 18, we have a church and a gas station, both in North syracuse. They had about 1.5" on them. I am just complaining because this time of year we usually have all the plow damage fixed already and are working on landscapes by now.

    Lake effect-Channel 9 said it has only snowed on easter once in the last 20 years. Of course that is at the airport, not up where you are.

We had 4 events this year, 3 of which was snow, 1st was 4" 2nd was 4" and the last was 5":dizzy:( all of the storms were followed by ICE which was a mother) for a total of 13". What did upstate NY get??????? I know it is weird to plow in April. Why don't you come move down toward the city and I'll come up by you!!??!!

    Our forcast below Cleveland ( Akron ) said 3-5 inches last night.
    I am thinking yeah RIGHT !
    So I put the plow on, top off fluids and fuel the truck.
    Guess what ? No snow !
    STOP the COLD bring back spring !
    It's over, give up already!

    Plowing on ANY Holiday is better than not plowing at all. I'll take waht I can get, and this year I only got about 3 or 4.
