Andrew, im the same way with these weather guys. I see it and make my predictions compared to what they say and i tend to be more accurate, to think i used to want to be a meteorologist.
And yea i actually make the call whether to go out or not, and small storms where i dont have to plow much i just help the guys ice melt and shovel our condo locations while the sander does his thing, this way i dont call in extra guys and keep payroll down.
I know exactly where that plaza is, been by it many times. I want to get a plaza or two like that, thats what i used to plow, so much better. Plus i want to put some bigger equipment to work, we have a backhoe that pretty much sits idle all winter.
