    I'm hoping for more snow and a bit more cold weather. Didn't happen last year. As a hunter, the hunting season was a joke. Cold weather and snow should change that. Plus I can plow!

    Every year we had a fluke Halloween storm. The winter was lame. Anyway I'm per event heavy, so let it snow.

    Thanks for posting these AccuCon!!! Good reads for sure!
    Best quote from all of them was this one by Darrin Harr:

    "I would say this winter will be better than last winter by simple default. If you draw a “2” out of a deck of cards at random, the chance of drawing a higher card the next time is extraordinarily high. We drew the “2” last winter, but are we going to draw a “4” or “9” or a face card this time? I honestly don’t know yet."

    And to answer your question...No...I am not ready yet.
    Plows still in storage. Sander still in storage. Blowers still covered. Properties not staked yet. On the flip side...if needed I could get my stuff ready (although not any truck improvements) in about 24 hours.

    Looks like the north west hills could see 1-2"...

    From what I've seen it looks like everything will be right this season for snow, now all we will need is the actual moisture which has been lacking...Pesky drought!

    However hopefully the ground will be nice and frozen by the first actual snowfall, the grass would appreciate it...ha

    Anybody look into these services: http://www.weatherbell.com/landing/winter

    Snow coming down in Charlton right now, don't see it sticking though. Friend in Chicopee reported snow sticking to unpaved surfaces there.

    Anything but ready. My truck's tranny line blew out. I patched it up and drove home only to find another crispy section. Once I touched that, and I mean barely touched it, fluid pee'd everywhere. Took a look at the fuel lines too, they are nice and crispy so the truck is in the shop having new trans lines and fuel lines put on. Brake lines were already done.
    To top it off, when I was changing the fluid in my plow I went to angle it all the way to the right and when it hit the stop, that line blew out too. LOL. So nope. Trucks a Silverado 2500HD and the plow is a Curtis home pro 3000.
    Every time we got plowable snow in October the winter was a joke. But we didn't get plowable snow so I still think we are in for a decent winter and it will be colder than average.
