    hey kevin,
    you must be right near me, just south of BR Mi. i'm waiting as patiently as i can, we need about 6 days straight snow, get that phone ringing, ya know?
    this snow then melt crap ain't helping at all, i want more customers, doing alright with contracts but do better with call ins.
    let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, snow snow snow, we want snow. :drinkup:

    Supposed to have an ice storm tonight...I hate ice but I guess it's better than nothing.

    No plowable snow for at least the next 8 days.

    Poll results indicate that 21 people Wants it and Only 2 Gots it.

    Let's Hope for a Strong Finish. Tracking accumulations for the past ten Years shows a Steady Decline.... 10 years from Now People May Ask "Snow ? What's Snow ?"

    Big Storm Coming in tonight...Time to Put down the Bottle !

    We got it and are still getting it at the moment. I don't know what the deal is here because this time of year it is usually -30 or colder with very little snow fall. It is currently +20 and snowing hard. I think we got about 5" yesterday and are suppose to get 3+ today. My project for today is to shovel the roof and I am not looking forward to it. I figure there is over 2 feet up there and I am sure it is very heavy stuff since it has fell in 3" increments for the most part and had plenty of time to settle. I probably don't need to shovel but I am afraid if we get a couple of big dumps this spring I may end up having to do it anyway and I would rather shovel 2' rather than 4'. I can just leave the second 2'.

    Haven't even been out yet hopefully tonight. I have seen predictions for my area any where from 1" to 6" I guess we'll see. Hopefully late Jan and Feb get better the temps have been way to warm not even any salting.

    We have only received 2.8" so far, about 18 inches less than a normal, this time a year. I have had the opportunity to plow 1.5" of ice/slush/snow combination last weekend.

    Stumper, I live about 25-30 miles S.E. of you. This is my first year doing this. I have 6 accounts right now, 4 paying and 2 non paying (in-laws). I guess it gives me some more practice. My in-laws are great people and I couldn't begin to charge them. Do people start to call you a lot when it starts to snow? I hope this is the case. Well if not I'll have to try for more next year. Good luck, let me know if you need any help. Kevin :waving:

    ya'll suck.......

    Yep, thats right you heard me.........taking all the white gold away from us. I need you guys to truck it over here and dump it on the parking lots. We need something to do. Guess what we got out of the 'big', 'ominous'......storm.....RAIN, not freezing rain, not sleet, sure as hell not snow, but rain. If this keeps up I'll be out mowing the end of this month! :nod:
