    It's been 6 weeks here in north west IL. with no snow maybe if I put the plows away it will snow! or a snow dance might help. ( nope just alot of rain & in the 50"s)

    Here's what I've done:

    1. Put the plows away.

    2. Took the spreader off the truck, and even put my tailgate back on.

    3. Snow dance (don't ask)

    4. Stood in my driveway with those orange flashlights trying to wave the snow in our direction.

    5. Washed the truck.

    6. Waxed the truck.

    7. Washed the plow.

    8. Havn't picked up any more salt in a few weeks.

    Nothing has worked. I've been trying to find Mother Natures phone number on http://www.switchboard.com, but I havn't found anything yet. Does she have an e-mail address???

    I have found Mother Natures number and her answering machine said "Hello this is Mother Nature" and this year is to prove two things.

    1. I am running things and you must deal with it!!!

    2. Every time you looked up and cussed me for raining on your barbecue, fishing, Nascar race etc. I heard and listened. How do you like me now!!!


    Happy Plowing

    The only thing I've broken was my lung, and that was a little over a month ago when it actually WAS snowing. As of right now, the truck, the plow, and my spreader are working flawlessly.

    I think she's laughing, not listening.

    I hope that tonight will leave us with at least a plowable amount of snow. As far as getting hurt, I'm not making any promises. LOL

    Down here I'm glad that I have some weight in the trucks. We are supposed to get up to 50 mph winds today. Hold on to your hat and hopefully something that is anchored well.

    Happy Plowing

    Hey its T-shirt weather hear boys. Had thunder and lightning last night and this morning. All the land mines from the dog are poking there ugly little heads out. Hope we get that freeze tonight, be a fun job for tommorow. Havn't had any pushible snow round hear in quite some time.I guess I should start thinking about pulling the boat out of storage. That would be sure bet for at least 2 more good snowfalls.
