    The weathermen were fairly close this time. We got 11 inches of snow between 2 AM and 9 PM. We plowed for 18 hours. <p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    Forecast was totally inaccurate here. They called for 8&quot;-10&quot; and we got 2&quot;-3&quot;. They said it would start at dawn, it started late afternoon. Said it would last 18 hours and it lasted maybe 6. Amazing that weather forcasting is a profession at all.<p>Oh well, it's probably a good thing we didn't get hit like they thought we would. One of our trucks wouldn't start. I think the starter is shot. Guess I'll find out monday. So we had to plow with only two trucks.<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>
