    Yea, any precip that falls will freeze on contact. Going to be using a metric F ton of salt tomorrow. Round one begins in about 7 hours.

    My god. Hopefully Harrisburg Truck Body can figure out why my 6 week old plow crapped the bed 4 hours into the last storm in time. LOL

    Lights snow falling in Mechanicsburg. Light accumulations on my Operations Managers deck, but she’s up around 1300ft in Dillsburg.

    Our kids will certainly enjoy the white Christmas. Not sure they’ll enjoy having to wait for daddy to get home from work before they can open presents though.

    I lived in Texas for 8 years while I was stationed at Ft. Hood. It snowed twice in that period. Once it coated the ground and that shut everything down. Huge trucks on the side of the road. The other time it was a mix of sleet and snow that made things slick and it was even worse. Got the day off work, and again, everything shut down. Texans do not handle snow very well.

    I think we’ve seen this before though. The models have trended west and west only to pull back to where they had started. I could be wrong though.

    That’s a nice dry slot. But maybe I’ll get to use my new salt spreader this weekend. Looks like I need that precip shield to move about 10-15 miles NW

    Do you see any chances of a change over with the system next Tuesday/Wednesday? I’ve seen it talked about by other sources (PA Weather Action & S&S). Looked like the GFS had that look last night on the happy hour run and continued with it overnight.

    It does look like we’re in for a couple of shots at some winter weather around the 11-18 December time frame. I’m very busy finishing up hauling salt and equipment out to snow sites. We have more properties this year including a big HoA in Enola. Going to have 8-9 guys plus myself on site during a plowable event. I hope these patterns continue to show up, improve and ultimately verify. Would be a great start to the winter for us

    Looks like today will be a really nice turkey day. Tomorrow should also be nice for the shopping. I will be taking advantage of the nice weather and doing some more Muskie fishing in the Conodiguinet. Water was very cold last weekend. Expecting more of the same tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    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.

    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

    Light rain with some wet snow mixing in at times here at the shop in Dillsburg.
  14. Central PA - December 2017

    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.

    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!
