oH Boy Jason are you itching bad!! lol. The best I've heard is chance for snow on sunday. 30% right now. Philly stations saying 1-3. But then they said rain snow mix. I dunno. The way they've been predicting this year I'm just waiting till 2 min before it happens. Last week really grinded my gears! 3-6" and got barely a dusting. Talking about snow showers for tomorrow. So we'll see. If you run out of stuff to plow let me know I can probably put you to work,depending on how much we get. I have the bug bad too but the season has about a month left. getting down to the wire. I've already got 2 new contracts for hotels in Dover and the owners house in Quail. Almost done thinking about snow. Did I just say that out loud?

Yea our season down here ends about the end of Feb. Once in a while we get snow in march but very rarely ever. Who did you get insurance through? I have it through state farm and pay about $650 per year. 1mil. coverage.

I got it thru Drass Ins. but I got coverage on the truck, plow ,trailer, tools and then G/L so it covers everything so Im good now not before thought but thats what happens when your business partner is so clueless!

well if your around after about 4 I'll stop by the house to see it. I have a doctors app. at 3:45. chiroprator so it won't take too long. Best I've heard is phiily stations saying 3-6. Gary is still hung up between 3-6 & 4-8. anything over 4" is fine with me. Makes it worth while.

I wouldn't say soooooo lucky- right now I'm at 28 hours with no sleep- have one more commercial to hit then I'm crashing for two hours- will have another 3-6" then and will have to go back out! I will have pics soon- we have gotten an average of 2 FEET over most of my coverage area- and some areas actually had 3FEET on the ground- sad part is it's still snowing!!!!! They are al;so calling for more lake effect next week- with an additional foot or so by 7pm today!! Anyone want a road trip?!?! I had to call in CNY Joe to give me a hand this am- got backed up trying to open the commercial accounts! Well, gotta go- just stopped at my dads to check the radar and use the restroom- sure beats a snow bank!!!
