i got to plow a little and sand a lot this morning. it was a good change of pace. sanded all the lots this morning, and then went back and cleaned up the walks and plowed the slush off. got about an inch and a half.
It cant be true !!!
I think I heard the weatherman forecast snow for northeast Il. this sunday????? I must be dreaming. I think they said we may get 3- 6 of the white stuff. Oh well better get back to bed before I wake up and realize Im just dreaming.
If the long range outlooks are correct, they show it getting pretty darn cold in about 5 days for the northeast.Lows in the teens maybe single digits some nights and i counted three possible snow events but that always changes.
I'm wainting fo r all this rain to stop myself. I always figure with this over abundance of rain, then a super deep freeeze, how may could possibly have broken water pipes from their wells and other things that could go wrong. The old farmers always said, snow and insulator and poor mans fertilzer.
I agree that anything billable when in business starts the new year off in the right direction. Since leaving the highway dept, sand/salt,, I am no longer involved in. Still do a school, several banks and other business' in Sturbridge, that is of cousre, it it snows anything over 4"
I got to sneak up to Vermont Thursday & Friday for some snowboarding. Woke up Friday AM to some snow. I felt bad for my truck as I warmed it up & brushed the snow off, I think she felt like she was gonna get to plowing! Poor thing had to sit & watch me have fun playing in the snow, instead of playing in it. It was nice to at least watch some plowers out salting at least, and got to see a big state truck with wing clearing a road too. Seemed like they got 3"-4" in the valley and around 2" on the mountain before it changed to a light rain\ice\sleet\mist combo for a few hours. Then it got foggy on the mountain, but thankfully was not foggy down below for the ride home.
