    I was checking the weather today (www.weather.com) and it said rain/snow for sunday with a low of 26 degrees. Now i have to get my magic salt out of my friends shed and bring it to my house. I hope bill (thelawnguy) is right with his prediction of 2" of snow before Thanksgiving. I also will have to get the Gravely L to my house, and hopefully can get a urethane edge for it soon.

    I think its been too warm for any accumulation on pavement, but we will see what develops.

    I prefer Intellicast for my weather, at least when its wrong its not off by too much...

    2 - 4" tonight.

    Up to a foot on Saturday.

    Too early in the season for this.

    The salters were out on the roads to the south of Hamilton along Lake Erie today. We aren't expected to get anything. Rain for thursday, maybe some flurries by the Lake Ontario. Suits me, we aren't ready yet equipment-wise.

    SUN NOV 19 Rain and Snow hi 44°Flo 27°F

    ^ is the forecast for sunday here for greenwich,ct. mayb because i live on the water it has some effect. Geoff- my friend is letting me borrow the gravely L for the winter. I was also hoping to use a farmall cub tractor w/ a 60"blade, but no luck with that. I have 2 snowblowers, and a gravely for sure. I should only say one snowblower because my snapper single stage gets clogged in even light snow. I'm going to be looking for a small garden tractor with a plow and a cart so i can drive to accounts and not have to relie on my parents for tranportation from job to job. My friend has a small wheelhorse (the same one chuck has but w/ a 4hp engine) that i'm going to see if i can buy from him. I also want to get a urethane sample to try out on the gravely or tractor. Well, that's a long enough post.
