Id be shocked if it stuck to the roads and actually stayed long enough to plow or salt.

I think that we forget history too easily. Last we got 6" on March 29 it started much like this one on a Saturday morning. Snowed like hell all day I treated all of my properties three times in that storm it was 33 degrees but it the snow stuck most properties looked I didn't even touch them after being there twenty minutes. Two years ago we got about three inches on the grass maybe an inch on roads April 14th. Late winter storms are not that uncommon in KC now it sticking that is entirely different.

I pushed mostly slush at the commercials I did this morning. I guess we go back out this evening and do all the houses overnight. This is BS. I was mowing and wearing shorts yesterday.

same here. hated to have to put jeans back on. got everything pushed this morning and looks like more coming. as long as it is snowing, might as well get a second push in tonight.
we have a second business, a concession trailer where we serve food for events. today is our first event in leavenworth. the wife, daughter and one of my helpers is up there. not a good day for that.
