    1 1/2 inches is my trigger and as of right now, I'm planning on running half of the trucks that I usually run. Of course that could change at midnight, but I'm doubtful of that.

    Just my .02¢

    Noaa keeps changing there total amount :dizzy: You will freak out if you try to track them all :eek:

    I will know in the next 30 min if I will have my trans back tonight, for my only plow truck. Boy am I praying, or I will be doing alot of shoveling!!!!

    but all and all, I think we will get about 2 inches.

    Anyone see tom skillings at noon? i missed him.

    Latest I've heard is 1-3, more closer to the Wis. border. The Weather Channel said Milwaukee is in the 3-6 range, but that will probably change by the time I get done typing this. So for now.......sit and wait and wait and sit :nod:

    The last I heard from NOAA is 1-3" with a possible locally higher amounts of 3-5". I guess they are going with the SWAG(scientific wild arse guess) system tonight. :confused:

    Weather

    I just saw news for Rockford, IL. They are calling for about 1 1/2" for us. (I hope more cause we are 2" trigger). They showed that the heavier stuff was down around Sterling Dixon ,and almost Rochelle, IL. I guessing "it will depend on the storm track". I hate when they say that. He didn't say that this time though. This guy and accuweather have called the last few amounts just about right on. They are both saying 1 1/2". I like that Milwaukee 3-6 forecast better.

    Bring it on, we'll 'Git 'Er Done'!

    ??

    I could be wrong and I will hear about it tomorrow if I am. But as of now I looks like this hole storm(if you could call it that) is falling apart. I think this will be a salting event if lucky for DuPage, Will, and Kendall County areas.

    :D That's odd that they don't even make mention of it breaking a record.
