    Ever have that bad dream that you wake up to accumulating snow you didn't expect?

    Well thats how my morning started. The miniature French bulldog decided she wanted to answer natures call at 4am. Good thing too. There was 4 plus inches of snow already on the ground!:eek: Thankfully the plow was still on the truck as well as the spreader. So get it loaded quick and off I go!prsportprsport

    The forecast called for occasional light flurries........Damn Meteorologists!:gunsfiring:

    I never knew a miniature French bulldog could be so useful.

    First time this year I had the opposite. Got up to go plow. Drove into town to look around and just a dusting. They called for 1-3, but I think it all blew away.

    A similar thing happened like that here a few weeks ago only it was at night. We were supposed to get a dusting and got 4-5" in about 3 hours.

    The other day we were supposed to get 6-12" and ended up getting about 2cm worth.:angry:

    Happened to me too

    Got up thinking we were to get 2-3 inches of snow, looked out the window, nothing, but there was ice like crazy. I saw the newspaper lady slide passed my house. Taught me, you can not just cool out the window, actually have to go outside and see what happend.

    Had the same thing happen a couple of weeks ago.... called for 1-3" overnight, and @ 3am there was over a foot of snow on the ground!
