I live in Marlboro and they always do a really good job even on the rural road I  live on...I have a plow on my F-250 and can clean up my driveway when the town plows block the end of the driveway. I also had to use my snow blower and a lot of shoveling to clean up... I plow snow with my two brother in laws... We have a contract with a neighboring town...... We worked like hell to keep those streets and it seemed like it was never going to stop snowing....


Today it's warm and rainy with a lot of fog from the meting snow...

Is it suppose to get cold there tonight? With the sun out, that will make a messy drive tomorrow morning.

I guess we didn't do to bad we got about 10 inches here in Monmouth County.. It was light snow and easy to plow.... I did my streets and then went to my real job on the Rail Road...   I got home a little while ago and I'm spent...



Checkers... I guess 10 inches of snow is a lot for your area ?? I'm in the process of making plans to travel to Kansas City for Rail Road business... Does it snow a lot there in March ??   :o If it does I'd have to be camped out in KC if the city gets snow bound........... I can just imagine having to be forced to eat all that great BBQ that I hear they are famous for ... ;D That would be a dam shame for a guy from the East coast to have to be subjected to such conditions and get paid for it at the same time.. ;D

That's about what we got too. Wish it was always light snow , so much easier to shovel then wet snow.

I was in Kansas for the fall race and all I ate was their awesome BBQ.

OMG, The Best BBQ in Kansas City is Rosedales off Kansas Avenue on the Kansas Side. I've been going there since I was old enough to eat. LOL, So dont let anybody tell you any different. If you send me a PM let me know your area you will be in I can tell you the best places. But the normal BBQ chains are just that, a Chain, and you can get that anywhere. Its the hole in the wall joints and atmosphere that makes the Great BBQ places. Rosedales has the BEST Pork Ribs, and Tuesday is the Pork Rib Special, You could get a slab for like $12. But I havent been ther in awhile so IDK how much they are now. Their Brisket Sandwiches are good too. But, Arther Bryants has the Best Brisket Sandwich and Burnt ends, at Arthurs be sure to ask for extra pickles. LOL.
But If you want to give me a call, My husband and I will come meet ya.

My new favorite BBQ is Arthur Bryants in the Ameristar Casino.

And Snow in March, Not usually. Just windy, Rainy, and chilly.

I most certainly will make sure I will get a hold of you guys when I'm out there.....I'm not certain of my travel dates are yet..... I'm just starting to plan now... It will depend on the company I'm going to visit for vendor compliance and the Rail Road signing off on my travel plans... I'm hoping for March if  everything goes as planned....  The only shit thing about this trip is I have to bring one of my co-workers, and he's a tight wad... He only goes to all you can eat buffets.... I'm making sure I ditch him for my dinner plans... We get paid meals and he won't spend a dime more then he has to because he pockets what he don't spend..... I spend every dime the RR gives me and some... I'm not scrimping on myself when I travel...  I'm away from home and I want to have a good time...  ;D

LOL RR, thats hellarious. We was just talking about that stuff with our son. Most RR's can live off the per diams daily. and Leave their checks for Home Budgets. He says he can save money if he dont eat out a lot and buy stuff for lunches. We laughed at him, he likes his hot meals too much. LOL, I know him better then to save his living expenses. Besides, he likes to play poker with the guys, and well, you know how that is. LOL

so just let me know ahead of time. Maybe we can take you out to see the Kansas Track, and go out to Legends, the new Hard Rock Casino might even be opened by then, IDK. I havent heard an opening date on it yet.
