    Last year I didn't have to move the trucks after Jan. I hope that is not the case this year. I have only plowed 3 times so far. Sure would be nice to plow at least 5 or 6 more.

    I know this will not be a popular statement...But...I welcome this little break...we have been getting hammered since Dec. 21 from the Lake Effect and it's time to restock the salt and fix everything that has broken since the onslaught began three weeks ago....I think we'll be fine late Jan. early Feb. But I have to agree, if it weren't for the Lake Effect it would be a horrible year. You guys in Central and Southern Ohio have to be ticked...I hope it turns around for ya.

    Sir, this thread is for those us of that have nothing else to do but complain about the lack of work. Please keep all statements about abundant snow to yourself.

    Thank You

    We do one very large account and its seasonal so the warm weather is not a problem except for the boredom,

    I guess we miss out on getting paid for salt with the warm weather, but we still make out better with no snow.
