What they really meant was snow likely, mainly between noon and 4 pm, with less than a dusting accumulation.

That update??

sooo,
anyone else planning out a spring budget?

For starters I'm going through a couple grand of irrigation inventory.
I brought alot with me from TX.


wait a sec...here comes the sun!
Should clear out {the clouds}well and have quite a bit of sublimation when the winds kick up. That blob of cold air is moving no doubt

I bet we go -5 to -10 tonight around here.

Holy crap you guys have been busy today...burned through two pages! We got about a half inch of snow last night so we sanded everything..then at 3am it was 37 degrees out and rained a little..then another band of light snow went through at about 8 this morning when it dropped to 18 degrees so now all the lots have that brown mushy car traffic kinda snow in them so its back out to burn up some more edges tonight I guess.

Did you get the salt from Northern yet?

I decided today I'm making the switch, at least for 1 pallet. I have about 15 bags left of my other, which is good. I need a couple more checks to get here.

I spent the day trying to remove a starter from one of our really old F250's. Still cant get the last bolt out. The head was so rusty that it rounded off...

I'm planning to get there tomorrow.

I'm with Unit.

Yesterday they had a 60% chance of snow for us. Even as the snow had passed to the south and west of Forest Lake, the NWS had 50% chance of snow.

It'll be a bunch of waves of energy like today.

A couple of places may get an inch, most places will see snow fall, but that's it.

As it gets colder towards Sunday, the flakes SHOULD get bigger and fluffier.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to try out Northern... you think the 'plus' stuff is worth the extra cost?

When your talking about northern salt, it that a brand or are you getting it at northern tool? I haven't heard of it before and need to get a few more bags til I get bulk for next season.

Northern Salt out of New Brighton.

I personally don't think the plus is worth it.

I used to run PowerThaw from JDL which was rated to-20, much like the Pro Plus from Northern.

I switched to ThawMaster which is rated to -5 like the regular Pro from Northern and it works fine.

Is that the one at the armory right off of 316? I was at a show a few years back down there.

NWS (among others) low 40's tomorrow. Is it January?
