Ct, ny and mass

Hey guys, just want to gather your opinions on the weather and how you operate during March. I am in the NW corner of Ct so my snow season is in line with Mass and Eastern Ny state, usually I hold off stripping the sanders off the trucks until the last week in March but it looks like I might do it this weekend instead. I have been watching the weather and I don't feel we are going to get that last March storm we always count on around here, so what is the general consensus on this issue and how is everyone else working this out? I already have a pile of work lined up that requires transition of the trucks and I think I'm good to go.

Worst comes to worse you can always put the salters back on. Just watch the weather like you have been. I know were in for some cold days and a possibility of a bit of snow where I am....Might need salt. Another thing is sometimes it will rain during the day or evening and than get super cold might need salt again. Weather around here changes like crazy as u know. good luck

I am in the same boat around here. I think that spring is here, but I do not want to jump the gun and get screwed. I have been doing some minor cleanups and starting to mulch some stuff. Am I crazy?
