much to my chagrin, winter ended up sucking. Feb and Mar came in with lots of snow, more than normal. with 2012 being an easy winter, there was less demand on replacement after market parts for snow equip. purchases were put off. that changed late this winter and we should see YOY improvement to revenue and earnings. trend should reverse for PPS and i look for PLOW to go up. this stock is a buy. great dividends too which are well protected with cash on hand. looking forward to next earnings announcement week of May 8.
