Nothing here either. I did one salting this year, and the only reason for that salting was the handicap ramp is wood (which is very slippery during the winter months if any type of moisture gets on it).

Perhaps a light storm here middle of next week, but that will only bring a couple inches.

I see a few lawn care companies on the drive to work (through the South end of the city) still doing leaf jobs, for lawn care providers this has been an excellent fall in our city.

It's next to impossible to budget for snow removal here in Halifax, I have seen many winters where I never dropped the plow once.

I think we're all losing our minds.

It's gotten so bad, I literally don't do anything. I shaved yesterday, was the highlight of my winter so far. :D

I started to advertise junk removal and basement and Garage clean ups.
I just need to keep the money rolling in. Got bills to pay and equipment to buy etc.

The lack of snow has really allowed us to concentrate a lot more on marketing and selling for the 2012 season.

The only thing different that we did this year, because of the lack of snow was do a lot of gutter cleaning jobs. We did those right up until last week, which is unheard of here.

We are about a month behind on when we normally receive our first snow storm. My biggest fear with the lack of snow is how is going to effect my selling of flat monthly rates for next winter. The only thing that will save us now is a very snowy January and February.

no snow and I hope it stays that way. I only have a few drives on per push and one commercial account the rest all pay seasonal. I rather make 20 grand sitting on my *** then having to plow for a bit more.

lmao. Yeah being paid to sit on my *** is nice, but without work I never really noticed how boring I am.. ahaha! I want the snow to stay away, but I think I'm losing my mind.

Anyway, my imaginary friends and myself need to get back to our game of eye spy with my little eye.

No snow here yet. ( St. Louis )

It actually got up to 65 degrees a couple days ago.

Even before a started snow removal a couple years ago i love the snow. My favorite part of winter is the snow, Well, Christmas is my favorite part, but snow is a pretty close second.

I see guys out doing leaf cleanups...I've done a few and i'm thinkin about just driving around and knocking on doors askin if people want leaf cleanups like i do on some of my snow removals.

I think today was my limit.

I'm literally going insane. I can't even sit still anymore.

I've watched 10 minutes of every movie on Netflix, but I can't watch a full movie without wanting to do something else, so I'll play a game, then I get bored.

Exciting enough, I have laundry to do, WOOO!!! Finally, something...

Seriously though, what IS there to do? I want some fun, and I want it now.

Yea, I'm hoping for a lot of snow in Jan and Feb cause i got a lot of work when it snows and I just bought another truck for plowing. Salting of commercial properties is a plus for the little flurries that have come by so far.

But i'm keepin myself busy enough, this is always a good time to educate yourself on things. If I wasnt in school part-time i would definitely get another job. And I think a lot of you would agree with me when I say it's hard to sit around and do nothing, let's get to work.

I am kind of torn too with snow and no snow. Half of my snow plowing accounts are either pre-pay or flat monthly rates, so even though I would love it to snow, I am fine if it doesn't snow either. Maybe just a couple 2 inch storms here and there. I have about 1/4 of my clients on 1 inch trigger, another 1/4 on 2 inch trigger, and the rest on 3 inch trigger.
