AS THE STORM DEVELOPS AN AREA OF HEAVY SNOW IS LIKELY ACROSS THE ABOVE REGIONS BEGINNING TONIGHT TOGETHER WITH VERY STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS AND POOR VISIBILITIES IN BLOWING SNOW.

I'm looking forward to the same storm- it's going to draw down some cold air from your neck of the woods and give us some lake effect snow. The local weather geussers are calling for 4-6" of snow in my neck of the woods. I can't wait!!

LOL- sorry guys, just had to tease you some more!

Just checked the weathr maps and I can see the rain changing to snow, should start to roll in sometime after midnight. Looks like I won't have to go out in the early am, but instead looks like I'll be dealing with all of those wonderful Saturday shoppers!!! Oh Joy!!

LOL

I just got in from using a friends hot tub, and when we left we noticed the temp had dropped- so I looed at the rad, and sure enough it's on its way!! It's in Buffalo no, and headed towards us- looks like the cold air will come right over the lake with some wind and kick the old lake effect machine into gear!!!

I'm Ready!!!

We went out about 2 am Monday night,and finished up around 9 am.4" of light powder,very easy to plow.It was our first good run of the season,besides salting.No major mechanical breakdowns,just a few quirks that never seem to show up during pre-season checks.
