    Ok, so this winter so far has been really weird. The first half of December was nothing but snow, and then the last half was 60's and rain. Right now we have absolutely no snow on the ground. I can never remember something like this before.

    To make things even more wierd a customer calls me up to come over to her house to do a fall clean up (rake up some leaves and to mostly pick up some sticks in her lawn). I said no problem I will be there tomorrow (Wednesday) in the morning. Now this is where is gets stranger, we are supposed to get anywhere between 5" to 12" of snow tomorrow night and Thursday morning.

    You think that wierd? We had a snowstorm right before thanksgiving, then its 60s for the first of DEC, then its in the teens for the 2nd week, then back to the 50s, then the 20s and finally last week it was almost 70 on FRI, today we are getting ready for an ice storm and it turns into a thunderstorm.

    Nuts here too. No snow whatsoever. New Year's Day it was 64 degrees. Crazy.

    Troy, this winter makes me glad I sold the snow division out in April of 2004 :p ..It was 65 here on New Year's Day, too Rod..We have had ZERO snow events worth plowing / sanding /salting. If it stays like this much longer, I'm going to move up some spring hardscaping installs :D

    The weather has been great here. sure it's raining, but we'll take that anyday over snow. We love when we get hardly any snow, we know it makes the plowers mad. (sorry plowers. :angel: )
