    Probably salt the commercials three times over the next 24 hours if we get what they claim we are getting in Michigan. But I have some high maintenance upscale Hotels and an apartment complex on the list. A few commercials wont get that high of maint.

    Who knows. 2 inches expected the other day and I never left the house.

    must be nice. they've had winter storm advisories since last night, and we got about 2 minutes of sleet and about 1/2" of rain today. i went to my son'd hockey game this evening in parma ohio which is on the west side of cleveland right off the lake and it was nice to see we had more snow than them for once. later, pete
