    It doesn't make that much of a difference to me. Quite honestly I haven't related to any articles featuring a business yet. When someone features Joe Snow Opps with sales less than $100k, then I will be able to relate, but hearing about some dude making serious scratch bores me.

    If your looking for the headline article Snow Magazine does that. Sima's Snow Business and Gie's Snow Magazine are very similar and I confuse them alot, just like with Landscape Management and Lawn and Landscape.

    But I enjoy reading them all.

    When I read how someone claims they made 2 billion in one year in a 2 inch snow market after being in business 1 year with 2 trucks and 500 subcontractors I have a hard time finishing the article. The tech articles are almost like reading the owners manual on that piece of equipment. But then who would want you to know more than the manufacture of the equipment?
    After reading the tech articles on salt spreaders I see a lot of info on bearings was omitted. I base the statement on a 40 hour class I took on bearing life improvement.
