    I've been a meMber for a couple months and found alot of useful information here. I can learn how to get customers, how to fix my equpment, how to manage employees, and the list goes on. One thing I cant find anywhere on the site is, HOW CAN I MAKE IT SNOW??????:realmad:

    Cant go seasonal. I have only a few clients, but I'm subcontracted to the landscaper I plowed for the last 12 years. This is my first year in business. Bought a 3/4 ton truck and a plow for it and my 1/2 ton. We had one good 2" snow so far, and the driver of my 1/2 ton put the bedside into a pole. Good thing it wasn't a car i guess. :cry:
    Btw, My feet hurt from all the snow dancing I've been doing.

    Or you could wash, wax, and detail the inside of your trucks. That works for me. Washed and waxed my last Friday. Had to go salt that night.

    When the weather "experts" say there is no snow in the forecast and I decide to relax and suck back a few pops, usually by the 5th one it miraculously starts to snow out of nowhere.

    Go have a few drinks, works for me.

    You guys have some great advice. I'm going to start by cleaning and detailing. If that doesn't work, ill list them for sale. If that still doesn't help, I'll search for great deals on a cruise while pounding Miller Lites. Wish me luck.

    Well, Mother Nature screwed us again. Our 2-5" forcast turned out to be just a dusting.

    Oh yeah and when you see a winter weather advisory DONT go on plowsite and talk about it. That is setting you up for even more disappointment. Im going to get both trucks washed and waxed on friday....
