  1. 39 here. Cold and raw. The rain will make staking snow sites easier on Monday. Although it didn’t entice the fish to bit this morning.
  2. First weather statement of the year. Guess my Veterans Day will be spent putting a salt spreader into the bed of a pickup. Sno-Services (harrisburg).pdf
  3. Light rain with some wet snow mixing in at times here at the shop in Dillsburg.
  4. Looks short lived I really hope we get some decent storms this year. Added another truck/plow/salt spreader to the fleet. Upgraded an older spreader to a new one. Had two fertilizer machines fitted with custom plow setups to make a total of 4 ride on, salt spreading, fertilizing, weed killing, snow plowing machines. Gained a few new sites this year as well.
  5. Lawns are starting to go dormant. It was such a great year for growing grass. Green as could be all year until now. Even some lawns we treat with irrigation are starting to go. Crazy. We only had about 6-7 weeks of treatments left. Might have to stop doing apps for a while. I had to skip 5 places today because it was too dry. I’m ready to plow some snow! Get this crazy year behind us and hope for an average winter with some damn cold!
  6. I was really looking forward to the fall cool down. Dropping water temps in the creek. But now they’re starting to warm up again. This has been a weird year for fishing with the ups and downs of water temps and then the constant rains earlier in the year raising water levels. I need colder weather to get the muskies active again. Caught one last week but since then they’re just lethargic. Cmon cooler weather!
  7. Yea, that wouldn’t be much fun. Alas, we’ve got plenty of road salt left over from last year and more on the way in the next couple of weeks. I just want like 6” storms every 7-10 days with a couple of 10”+ ones in there somewhere. Definitely don’t want a blizzard with some of the new places we picked up this year. That storm back in 2016 sucked. I was in a plow truck for almost 50 hours. Clean up lasted another week and repairs and maintenance took another week. $$$$$ was good though!
  8. FWIW. Got an update from the weather service we use for snow and ice management. Winter Preview Part II.pdf
  9. Looks like things take a much cooler trend after next weekend.
  10. Seemed like a lot of the local news channels were saying it was supposed to be "scattered" light rain. I don't think they anticipated it to be this way all day. I saw a graphic last night on a local station that showed nothing until later in the evening. It rained all day in Dillsburg/Mechanicsburg.
  11. I second the hail. I live off the Rossmoyne/Wesley Dr exit and there was some dime sized hail coming down briefly with that last round. Gearing up for round two now.....power flickered twice during the last one....
  12. Enjoy the time down there. We just got back from a week on the beach. Weather was great. It stormed twice while we were there but both times were at night. The second night of storms was by far the best. We sat out on our balcony after the really heavy rain and wind passed through and watched the lighting out over the ocean for about an hour. Very relaxing. Oh and the water was beautiful. I don't remember a year when it had been that clear. One day we were out about 30-40 yards from the shore and could see all the way to the bottom. Really good time.
  13. Maybe we plow some snow again???? I'm down.
  14. plowing is goin good so far. On the second pass through this senior community. Coming down good in mechanicsburg tried to upload a photo but it wouldn't let me
  15. Last year was pretty similar until the "big one". This storm will make for long hours of plowing and possibly a day of euipment to move piles of snow and clean out parking stalls. We service about 14 commercial properties, 3 of which are large apartment complexes. We also have a large +55 community over off Hempt road in Silver Spring Twp that has over 300 driveways to clear. Going to be a good storm.
