Where's the snow?

Started early Friday morning, finally stopped at 7:00 am this morning (Saturday)

We had about an 1-1/2" - 2" of snow, sleet, freezing rain and then rain and then some more sleet and snow.

This was the longest "almost non plow event" I ever experienced.

I would rather have a foot of snow than this rain/sleet/freezing precip/snow anytime.

Just stopped by the house after my first run. Getting ready to head out again. It's supposed to stop tomorrow.

payup

This after 14" on the 26th. Then, supposed to get hit again Tuesday. Maybe it'll make up for the last two winters.

I am a litte better than $36 for the season, but still waiting to get paid by one contractor....

But this last storm was not good by the coast as Mr. Curtis said...
I did ask one customer about cutting their lawn... telling her that is was a little discolored...

... now if I can find a sucker to say yes I can make a little money.....

one more..... at one point the state had 11 trucks clearing one side. also, by the meriden station i plow, a state truck slid up on top of a guardrail! the plow broke off, and the truck was on top of the plow and sitting on the guardrail. the state wrecker was there, but i have no idea how they got it all cleaned up

yeh. those piles are from the first couple of storms. i had just gotten there to plow. the piles are much bigger now! as a matter of fact we hired a loader to come in later today to push all the piles back to make way for more snowstorms because there was so much snow. i forgot to take my camera this morning so i dont have any updated shots.

We got some snow at first then it went to all rain here for 2 hours then back to snow/mix for about 3-4" maybe 5 .All I know is it was like pushing cement .

Hey Matt,
What Station do you plow in Meriden the one on the
corner of Bee and Eastmain? By the entrance to 15/91 north?
If so we crossed paths today.
I plow down Bee st. and on E Main.
On the way home with the Pizza for the kids I saw a wasted
guardrail at the 15/91 split, It didn't look like it was a soft hit!:eek:

Thats quite a run to Meriden from Glastonbury for plowing.
Give us some powder!!!! I tired of plowing cement!!!
I think this was the longest, heaviest 6" we have had in a long time.
Time for some rest.

yeh bob, i plow that mobil. Its tough looking at your truck in your avatar. Is that a ford with a western? It is quite a haul to meriden. took me 1 hour to get back to glastonbury with the traffic. My father owns the place, so i plow his station in newington on the berlin turnpike, and then i run up to meriden and plow that one. I make one big loop sort of.

snow?, what snow! we had about 1-2" of an ice, frozen snow mess. we started salting at 4:00 am friday, finished 10 am saturday morning (with a few breaks in between). never spread so much salt in my life.would've rather had a foot of snow than that sh*t. went through about 16 tons. there was a lot of rain mixed in, kept on diluting the brine, making it useless
