    I've got 1 1/2" on the ground in central WI. 2" trigger, and a wide shovel (crashed my truck on friday). My customers all are telling me to wait and just clean up on Monday night. One less trip, I guess. On the bright side, it is a light, fluffy snow....

    We have between an 1.5 and 2 inches in Green Bay. I am sick of my contracts telling me that it will melt and to not come out. Then the stores look like crap the next day and it reflects on me and my crew!!! :gunsfiring:

    Wife said was 2"-3" on the ground in McHenry? Anyone measure that or is she looking out the window and guessing?

    Nothing but salting today.

    It's not over until the fat lady sings!

    Two years ago, a 3 inch storm canceled opening day at Wrigley Field. That same year, we had an active start to the month of March and then nothing until April 7.

    Just my .02¢
