I can feel your pain. I haven't been paid yet this year for plowing. Sold a generator, canopy for my truck, two guns, and my chainsaw is in the pawnshop. Bills are piling up. But it is snowing as I type! And I'm expecting to get paid next week. So let it snow!!

hey Rcgm, I'm only an hour south of you down at Columbus, and the weather isn't any better here. We're having temps up into the lower 40's.. a little warm for January. I don't commercial snow plow, or residential, but just ours and the neighbor's , so i'm not in trouble. I say that we should either get a big bunch of snow or let it go into summer... either way you guys would get some dough since you pretty much all mow also, right? I'm just tired of this mud-every-where-i-walk stuff. We still have some snow in the back yard, about an inch at places, less at the rest, and it seems pretty stubborn, since it's been above freezing for the past week or so maybe.

I just heard that we could get several inches here Monday. Looks like it's time to get my new U edge on my plow today. :)

Slim Jim Tim, I was by your work place yesterday, but I wasn't sure where to look for you at. Let me know.

Eric,

I was there, but I was actually working on limos most of the day. Our service department is so busy, it's pretty hard to find me. If it's snowing, just look for the black Z71. But chances are if it's snowing, you'll probably be out plowing as well...

Couple of inches on Monday huh? COOL! It's about time! It's been a while since we've had any snow. Although... it was kind of good in a way, at least I'm healthy enough to go out and work now.

Philly could use more of that white stuff also. Only been out three times so far. I know, I'll unload the 10 bags of salt I left in the back of my truck. Take my extra boots & gloves back in the house. Put the snow blower, shovels & spreader in the back of the garage and maybe even wax my truck. That should do it. Let it snow!!

We just came off a spell of snow every day for 14 days, only problem was that it was a fraction of an inch per day. Just enough to make us all look foolish/incompetent. Never enough to plow, it would almost melt off, then a little drizzle more would fall. Forecast is for flurries and occasioanl light snow through next week. I'm about ready for another 4-5 inch hit and go make some money.

Today's salting makes 54 days in a row of plowing, hauling, stacking, and/or salting here in the Erie market.

Sorry guys.

110" at the lakeshore. 203" at Interstate 90 (two miles south of the lakeshore), and where all of our big customers are located.

No sign of snow here in Grant County, Indidana, in fact, I'm starting to see more and more grass. Maybe I should put an ad out for grass plowing.

John Allin, quit hogging all the snow!

Well thanks John Allen for hogging all of the snow. Didn't your mom teach you to share as a kid?

I've made alot more money this year pushing dirt. So at least I don't rely on snow. Then again in Central Deleware I wouldn't be a real smart cat if I did rely on snow for winter income. But that gravy money sure is nice. So Please oh Please Mr. Allen send alittle bit this way.

While this winter season certainly hasnt been plow breaking in its amount of snow,what has come down has stayed around. This has casued another probelm for people here in SE CT.
Most are ruarl homeowners with longer than average driveways.
Now usually when they get a 4" snow fall it melts with in a day or 2 and they are all set. Well so far this year, what has fallen has stayed, so they now have over 12" on the their driveways and its not melting. SO enter our yellow page ad, and walla, we are still plowing 1-4 drives a day, even tho we are 4 days and counting since our last snow fall.
The guys who take the plows off 5 min after the storm is over, are missing out on alot of extra doe ray all for me.

With my experience, these people are good customer. they are so happy to findsome to help them. As fast you'll respond to the request, higher you could charge. Usually they want to be on your list for the next storm and will more talk of you to their family and friends than regular client. And they will never drop you.


WOWwwww 54 days in a row. at our Best winter we had 35 days of operation and non-consecutive.


but is still very cold, nothing disapear. 18" on the ground

We had a great Dec. even a little plowing in Nov. But Jan. has been ugly. With the warm temps. and rain the snows going fast. The worst part is the 12" on the roofs are now melted, down the rain gutters and frozen on driveways and sidewalks. I've been scraping and salting for the past four days. It is definitly not as fun as plowing snow
