    We got a winner! I live in Waretown exit 69 off the parkway but do alot of work on LBI. Of course it never snows here so I don't provide any snow removal and than this year people have been killing it. I will be at home twiddling my thumbs again this weekend. I actually have a patio that we are in the middle of doing its a week long project turned into a month:hammerhead: with the weather.

    To be honest Id rather have several small 2"-4" storms compared to a few big ones. The smaller ones are easier to make more money.

    yea smaller storms are better and much easier on the equipment

    But then again its great to be out for 2 days plowing :weightlifter:

    same here, easier to handle the lighter storms...even a few snow dustings we've had over the last couple weeks brought in decent cash

    Dude I feel your pain. We don't do the amount of work that you guys do, we just do some driveways, but the last storm it was myself, and I brought in two guys. Should have been more than enough, but one all of a sudden had to leave and one cried the whole time and had to go change his boots b/c he wore crappy boots and they got wet. So I called my brother and a friend of mine and they got me through the rest of the day. We worked till about 1:30. When all was said and done I got in around 2:30 am,, my wife told me she was pregnant and then I had to be awake in a couple hours to pick up my best friend/employee in Willow Grove PA from his deployment in Iraq! I will never forget the storm of 09! lol
