Seriously, I did a clean-up on Monday and I was looking at my lawn at home - it could use cutting. I've actually picked up more lawn customers in December than I did in October. Frigging weather. Some snow would be nice.
I can cut that lawn for $8. Do I hear $7?

It might snow but I do not think it will stick.

If you read the forecast discussion, it's talking about an accumulation for Mon. night, but "less than an advisory amount." But, it's getting more promising by the day. Even more so now than what they said this morning. That, to me, means at least salt. It's better than nothing.

The 4:00 update is now saying 2-4" Mon. night through Wed. We'll see, maybe it'll be a belated Christmas present! Let's hope so.

I know, I get all wound up about it, what, 4 or 5 days ahead of time. The ways things are going, my ears perk up at any mention of snow.

Not to jump on you or anything, but don't you plan ahead? I keep enough put away in the case we get no snow and I have to survive for 5-6 months without income. It would seem that you may need to rethink your business plan.
