    Can tell everyone is sitting on their bums waiting for snow. Normally I can log on here and read for an hour about new ****. Lately all anyone has been talking about is...... well nothing. I am 95 percent contracts and i still cant wait for at least one plow-able event.

    Just looked back on the December records of plowing from last year, and here in seacoast NH our first entry for plowing was Dec. 27. Then all hell broke loose.

    Some of us had snow early but are now like you eastern US guys........... sitting around looking at a whole lot of blue sky.

    I paid for my used plow already.

    Anyone else getting the feeling that this nice weather is leading up to something bad!!! For all the talk about how we were going to get so much snow this year, I am quite sure that when winter hits, it is going to make up for all the nice weather now. I just hope it holds out until after Christmas.

    Its always nice to see snow on Christmas day but, I agree with buckwheat, might as well wait until after the holiday.

    Benjamins are benjamins.

    I'll take em. Christmas eve, christmas day......

    When I was driving truck holidays and birthdays were celebrated when you could.
    Not always on the day that the calendar said.

    If I'm plowing on christmas so will some of my other family members that we were going to go visit.

    i hate to say it but there is probably a good chance at this point that our first storm for many of us will wrap around the holidays. Not good for dads with kids......
