We got a winner! I live in Waretown exit 69 off the parkway but do alot of work on LBI. Of course it never snows here so I don't provide any snow removal and than this year people have been killing it. I will be at home twiddling my thumbs again this weekend. I actually have a patio that we are in the middle of doing its a week long project turned into a month with the weather.

To be honest Id rather have several small 2"-4" storms compared to a few big ones. The smaller ones are easier to make more money.

same here, easier to handle the lighter storms...even a few snow dustings we've had over the last couple weeks brought in decent cash

Dude I feel your pain. We don't do the amount of work that you guys do, we just do some driveways, but the last storm it was myself, and I brought in two guys. Should have been more than enough, but one all of a sudden had to leave and one cried the whole time and had to go change his boots b/c he wore crappy boots and they got wet. So I called my brother and a friend of mine and they got me through the rest of the day. We worked till about 1:30. When all was said and done I got in around 2:30 am,, my wife told me she was pregnant and then I had to be awake in a couple hours to pick up my best friend/employee in Willow Grove PA from his deployment in Iraq! I will never forget the storm of 09! lol
