    They've been calling for snow all day but nothing. Tomorrow they say 2-4" but lets hope they're wrong!

    It will be 50* F or so, so I think I'll finish up the painting job I'm doing. Normal work day for me, except there will be a lot less traffic.

    Stupid NTAC's.

    All day yesterday talking less than an inch. Look at 9ish last night and it's up to 2". Started the hourly window forecasting at midnight. Started around 0200. Snowing HARD at 0230. Got my son up, looked like just salting. He starts on the churches and urgent care, I head the other direction and another squall is moving through but it looks like aboot a dusting. Head back to grab a salt truck, get to the first private road and there's close enough to 1.5" that I called in a couple guys to plow drives. Need to make a better showing than earlier in the week so even though it was borderline, we're going to be looking better than everybody else since no one is out plowing.

    Its the only job someone can always be wrong and never get fired... One is saying 1-3" Sun into Mon for us and one of the four local channels here is even acknowledging it saying a dusting. Rest are saying clear and sunny. Don't know what to plan for anymore, and you weren't the only one with a bad performance earlier this week on their guessing....

    Borderline is cool and reasonable enough, It's not like it was under 1''. Sure it will help your performance rating. With nothing froze you have to be careful. I seen a few guys make a mess.:eek: You get some of these older pavement jobs pushing a mess up. Stone fire lanes are no trip to the beach either.

    I'm enjoying the above average temps to, But it really needs to freeze over.
