    I have not plowed any snow since dec 11. the only snow since then has been a couple of 1/2" teasers. This is becoming very fustrating.it srarted out great. we got 2-3" on the 4th, 8-9" on the 8th then about 4-6 on the 11th. then nothing since. My plows are neatly tucked away in the corner of the drive collecting dust. It has been so nice out that i actually did a deck job a couple of weeks ago , in january, never done that before. well anyways i just figured id check in, havent posted much this winter. but with alll this extra time i have managed to put on 15lbs at the gym, so at least im doing something productive.

    I dropped my blade this past weekend:blush2: We were only out for about 5 hrs but it's better than nothing. We got some snow today but it didn't amount to much so far and tomorrow it's going back into the 40's.:confused: :realmad:

    Well on that account it seems like a storm may be brewing this weekend for the midwest. It is still extremely shakey as far as how much and where, also to where the freeze/thaw line will fall. But with any luck we should get something plowable.

    If not I suppose thats ok as well at least there is Mid-Am to attend.

    Let me know what you guys hear/think about this storm because I certainly know that I hope its a big one.

    Yeah I heard about this. If the track changes just a little we should get a lot here also or maybe I am just wishing!:D Only thing that kinda stinks is it will probably hit here Saturday during the day.:(

    I guess that Connecticut is where all the snow was, we had a one foot storm on Dec. 9th and another one footer on Jan. 3rd . All in all I have billed for 6 plows 2 each for the one footers than once each for two smaller (3-5") storms. We had 5" on Jan. 15th , but yesterday was 60 degrees out and wind driven rain. No more snow here, I sure hope it gets cold though as I'm sick of diving in to lawns/dirt drives.

    They said 2-3 for saturday but that will end up being T-1 because the ground is warm and since the temps are supposed to go back up the fallowing day we will not get called out even if we get 3.
