Compared to last year at this time I had more snow but fewer storms. 8 storms so far this year but they are leaving less snow and now it is raining so what snow we have will soon be gone. Mud Season is coming ealry this year
Haven't been out plowing once yet this winter. we haven't had more than an inch, maybe inch & 1/2 all season. Its getting pretty discouraging to say the least. By this time last year, I was sick and tired of snow, out plowing 2 times a week on the average.
We are way below average! Glad most of our accounts are on monthly payments we pay a weekly salary to 3 drivers. We make just as much money if it snows or not!!! We could use a liitle snow though, we have 30 accounts that pay per storm outside of our season contract accounts. .
Annual average 290 cm 100"
average for nov-jan = 175 cm, 65 "
and we had received 150cm, 55"
but we got inches per inches, so we don't have to do the per push and the other problem, weather is too warm, there is no more than 12" on the ground ( no extra job to do),. So we eat our seasonnal contract for fuel expense and labor...nothing is perfect. But no storm, no rush, less break down, this is not so bad.
