What do you do?

I was just thinking about this the other day. I have only been plowing for a year now and just got some actual accounts this year. My thoughts were, since I live here in michigan, the weather is always wacky. The last couple of days have been snow flurries. Yesterday morning (Christmas Eve) I had enough snow on the ground to salt. Well, what do you guys do when you have weather like this. I mean, I caught myself waking up every half hour looking out the window. Its kinda painful.

I was just interested in what some of you guys who have been doing this for years and years do when the weather is "wacky".

Hard to explain, but the sky gets a certain "color" when its snowing/raining. Dont sleep with the shades drawn, seems my internal clock gets me up at 2 then I can poke my head out the door, touch the railing etc.

just like above for me....you kinda get into a routine .......but for me its pretty much every hour ,,,you usually know when it will snow and there are times when your not sure ...those are the times that you get the broken sleep

What you guys need to do is make a friend at your local highway dept. and have him call you when he gets called in. You'll sleep much better and not worry so much. You'd be surprised what a case or bottle will do for you.

My lady would laff at me. But that would be a good idea. I like the idea of knowing someone at the highway dept. I know a couple of guys that work for the city here in michigan. I might ask them. Heck, who am I foolin, I won't be able to sleep. It's just a matter of time, we will get an event here and everything will get back to normal.
I was just checking out one of those new Hinker C- plows. Interesting. Just wondering if they are going to raise the price of their plow markers. haha. See ya'll in the snow!
