It has been over 3 weeks since I have done any snow. These 1/2 inchers just don't hit the trigger.
I don't even think about going out to blow snow anymore, thats how bad it is.

I'm going on a month since my plow moved (dec 28)
Thinking ahead. When is everyone planning on sending out their marketing for spring?

The only problem with those tiny snowfalls is that it takes almost no time to do it and its hard to make much money when you only go out and move snow for a few hours. But its better than sitting around.

1" takes as long as 2" so for my hourly properties I don't mind. I'd certainly take more but I don't mind an inch of snow.

When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.

yeah I suppose there really is hardly any difference. It'd be nice if we could just get like 5 inches of snow once a week or something like that haha

I'd be happy with that, preferably have it snow Saturday during the day and go out Saturday evening and get everything done. Most of my commercial properties aren't open Sundays and it makes it much easier
