Just found this thread. Erie here. As for snow, still green grass here too. We have only had a couple snows. The commercial guys have gotten a push(less than a inch) and a few saltings done. I do all residential, so I havn't done a thing. Figures though, first year with a back-up truck and I havn't needed either yet!

OK, not green here anymore. We had an unexpected 6 inches yesterday. Was a nice surprise. Looks like it will all be gone by Thursday. Thats ok, more room for the rest of winter.

We had a very light dusting Saturday night but everything was really slick. We salted a few shopping centers and gas stations, but didn't really have to bother with much else.

Hey guys, quick question for you all! Like most of us I am a solo IC who rarely ever takes any real time off. My girlfriend will be on business this February in Florida and asked me to join her for 3 days of it. My problem is with the snow and if we will or will not have any while I'm gone. What would you guys do in my situation? Put an ad on Craigslist for a sub? I have 2 contract areas to plow and 2 res that is it snows more than 2 in. or ices that I automatically go out for. Problem is they are all in different areas. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
