Did you plow dirt roads in the last 3 inch storm last week? All gone the next day, 62 degrees F the day after.

I didn't plow anything.

Nope, just been spreading salt like crazy on the paved ones. Tomorrow, however, may be a different story. Looks like some roads may be frozen and highs of 35-40 all week. Might have to do some of my roads and sand them heavy.

I know one of the Lowes we do already blocked off our snow storage areas with there trailers....dont know where to put the snow without them bit#$ing as they did when we pushed it to the other end.

About two inches here, a bit more in some spots. Over mud. Whatever frost was in the ground from yesterday AM came out under that nice warm blanket of snow.

I didn't put on my plow or load sand, I expected a dud even though NWS said "winter storm warning" for 5-9 inches. Looked like a dud at 7:30 AM yesterday.

Did go get one truck back from the shop just in case.

They are calling for stuff (origially 6 inches or so, we have a dusting to an 1/2 inch here give it a few minutes it melts down, ground temp has gotta be in the upper 30s, wind coming over the lake (water temp is 38). Still calling for anywhere from 1-4 inches...but I think thatll be on a cold plate at the airport. All stuff is still ready to go...so well see.

WOW! I guess I spoke too soon as the Syracuse area got blasted real
HARD from about 3 pm till 9pm or so! Ended up with about 6 inches in
my area of blizzardland!

Of course the dum-dums FORGOT how to drive in the last 2 weeks of
dry roads and warmer temps !!!!!
Many car crashes and fools in the ditch!

At least I got to plow one more time................

As I think this is the last time I will be plowing period because Mr. Bank
has finally busted the move and made a generous ca$h money offer on
the bar and parking lot property !!!!

Sure glad I held off and didn't buy a new truck!

We ended up with 4-6", plowed the commercials twice & the resi's once.
What sucks is the snow was so wet and heavy, the piles are huge and won't melt anytime soon. So much for landscaping next week............
