    It was 88 degrees Thursday, now a snowstorm on the horizon for tomorrow...El Nino, El Nina or El Loco?

    I was all psyched up for beginning the weekly cuts on Monday...

    Funny, I hadn't heard the weather forcast yet this morning when I moved the plow for my truck from the driveway area to it's summer location in the back yard. I can only get it in and out of that spot with my tractor (truck won't fit). I don't care if we get a foot of snow, it's staying there until next winter.

    Yup, 88 last week with the AC on and 27 right now with the heater on.
    We are supposed to get 5 to 7 inches tonight. I can just imagine where all that grass that I piled on the street is gonna go when the plow hits it.
    I'll have to start a sweeping business.

    I for one appreciate the break and excuse it will give me for the customers who cant wait.

    Well now it's snowing hard.:(

    Most of it is melting when it hits the ground. I hope it doesn't start to stick.

    We have about three sloppy inches on the grass in the NW burbs, nothing sticking to the roads. Looks like it is almost over. Tomorrow looks like a bust for working.

    RoyalRcr, are you next to the fireplace?

    It looks like the plow trucks are done for until November.

    Good luck guys,
