    Well it looks like maine will get another 6&quot; of snow tonight. Then it will change to sleet and freezing rain, yum. Then the temps are going to drop like a rock, and freeze everything up solid. <p>We had a storm just like this thursday night into friday only we only got 3&quot; of snow. Good thing i had the pre-wet systems. We plowed everything then sand/salted everything. In some spots we replowed and sanded.<p>Geoff

    forecast for southern new england is freezing rain/sleet/snow mix changing to all rain, heavy rain thru monday. Can we say flash flooding? Hope they are wrong again and some snow sticks around. Leaving the plow on just in case.<p>Bill

    We're looking at 4&quot;-6&quot; with some freezing rain thrown in for good measure. Sounds like fun. Hope that damn E-47 can get us through the nite! Love to catch a few ZZZ's before going out but my baby boy isn't likely to be sympathetic to my needs. &quot;Waaaaa! Waaaa! Waaaa!&quot;<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>

    Well they say 5 to 9&quot; here plus sleet and freezing rain. We will plow commercial lots starting at 4 am monday. Then we plan to finish all the lots monday night, and due the residental customers during the day. Maybe 3 visits top commercial, 1 or 2 residential, will have to see how the storm plays out.<p>Geoff
