    2-4" is enough for me. We get to plow on 1" and I don't see beating the trucks up for the big ones. The other thing, driving around is next to impossible when the storms hit. There are just to many people that need to buy milk.

    2 to 4 -4to8 is just fine for me.Big storms is just more on the trucks and a lot less sleep.

    You make more money on the small storms than the killer big one ill take 3 four inch storms over 1 twelve inch storm.

    Anything over 1" is fine with me, I'de prefer a 2-3' storm a couple of times a week instead of a big storm. Much easier on the equipement!!! and the body!!!

    12-18"? I'd be in heaven! I'm a snow freak like that. Must have something to do with the fact that it snowed on the day I was born........

    I'd break out the tow straps, all right. Lot's of people would be needing help.

    I wasn't around quite yet......but how does that compare with what happened in '79?

    I have all 3" triggers. I think I'd go for a bunch of 6" snowfalls. No question of "whether it needs it". I just got done with 8" - didn't even start to strain that 3500 diesel with a loaded Vbox.

    1" to 3 " fine by me. I figure I make more money on those storms than big ones.
