Nov 14, 2011. A few days ago (Thursday, when it sort of snowed), I saw my first snow plow of the season. The plow on the front of the truck was brand new, clearly never touched by snow. This is the second one I've seen, and it appears to have been put to the task in the past. Last February was a sizable task, too. Predictions claim that this winter will be similar to the last, which was pretty freaking heavy. At least it wasn't as cold as 2008/2009. I hope the approaching winter doesn't reach those lows, even if it does drop two feet of snow on us at a time.
