I'd like some more snow to push. Never thought I'd say it but with it being Christmas break so no school, I'm almost getting bored.

School. I only have one class left until I graduate though. Ive been going to the gym every day after class, beem going since shortly before Christmas and with an improved diet, I'm starting to see results. not that I was fat or anything, a little stocky but wanted to get into better shape for motocross racing and look better with my shirt off! :laughs:
I had my wisdom teeth removed last Monday so I was on the couch for about a week. Some snow would be nice. I'm Getting kinda bored some days!

What's the girly tv show? :laughs:

I was hoping to wake up to something more than this, but according to NWS, the majority will be after 3pm.

Man don't make me relive that lol....Don't you guys have side walks or slating to go do?? If not I suggest getting your numbers together and offer the service, I had just about a 1/3 of my income coming from the little events last year and this year as well and only worked about 4 hours per event. Now I have to admit my salting numbers probably aren't right where they should be but I am also not out going after big lots until I figure out the exact science, a lot of money could be lost there.

Oh and will probably have 2 or 3 tailgate salters available late winter/spring. One is a western(not sure of model) needs a controller, and 2 snow ex, one is a Pivot Pro 1075 and the other is the Bulk Pro 1875 w/vibrator. The 1875 is being rebuilt right now and as soon as it gets a little warmer I will get it done(no heat in the garage)
