    Mr Seedd? How many times do you have plowable snow in November on average?

    I think it was more like, "Look everybody, I have a plow!"

    2 years ago it was 55 on January first. That was in the middle of a record snowfall year. Don't fret on the temp...it'll come. If not there's always next year. Oh wait, that's what they said last year.

    I think everyone just needs to relax, its onlyearly december. Most of us here on the east coast even myself, hav had 2 plowing events in november, thats the first since 2008. Going through early december we kno its going to be mild, what were going to see is step down process, cool down warm again, then maybe around dec 10-15 the weather may change and get cold and snowy, just be patient!!!

    last year i didnt get any plowing in december. but your right, i am a little too anxious.

    its still early. and this is michigan afterall. where its literally possible to get sun burnt and frost bit in the same day.

    So your three year average is one third of a plowable event in November. Remember that for next year.......

    chuckles. i will

    but what scares me the most isnt the fact that it hasnt snowed, its that it is getting warmer. 60 degrees.

    does seem like the earth goes threw a cycle like this every 10-20 years.

    Now there is still going to be some storms where 4 foot could land all at once, but the constant 4-6 inch a night drops are becoming rarer, and forget the winters where snow use to lay all winter and their was a lot of work in just re-plowing drifting snow. Now even in the colder winters of late (which is still warm) It melts about as fast as you can plow it? Heck I'm only 30 but I can remember winters where it never got above freezing for month straight? Now we get like one week dry sunny 20-30, the next week rainy 40-50?
