    Copied this statement from a weather blog. Hope this gentleman is correct. Quote:

    " I have been predicting the following for fifteen years. There will be a major snowstorm sometime between April 1 and April 7 of this year. Thiis is due to the fact that every 15 years since my birth, there has been a major snowstorm around or on my birthday (April 7). When I turned 15, there was a storm on my birthday; when I turned 30, there was on on April 6; when I turned 45, there was one on April 1. I am about to turn 60 and the storm will come."

    I only remember the storm in 97, just bought a new F-350 and had no plow on it yet.As I pulled out of my street the snow was piling over the hood.Never seen that before or since.

    Great news, we will all be back to green work by then, a nice big storm to mess up the spring schedule.

    really I would rather not have that at all By that time we are just getting ready to mow and start mulching etc. That would put us way behind waiting for it to melt

    Yes really,
    It started as rain ,quickly went to freezing rain ,sleet then snow..About an inch and a half of slime under all that snow...
    No one was ready,many where already digging...
    That was the first time I plowed in thunder snow ,4" per hour snow rates threw out the night......
    I was lucky to be in the Oshkosh,at times it was the only truck in our section of Rt128 moving...I was pulling wheelers with plows down the ramps,out of the median etc...Crazy storm...

    Snow in late March and April are useless IMHO. Cant salt after plowing so all you do is the grunt work and miss out on the moneymaking.

    We've had 2" this year in NJ :( but i dont want the snow april 7th, thats too late, although within some of our contracts... by april 1st, everythigns put away and all landscape is full bore... that would be a nightmare having to do all that work even for a 12" storm, let alone a 3-4" "possible" storm or some BS on a weekday around that time !
