    Looks like our season is just about over. A couple promises of 1-2" here and there but nothing on the ground every time they forecast it and long range is high 30's low 40's starting next week. Hey at least there should be a few more weeks of ice fishing left.

    Nothing in the forecast other than low percentage chances of less than 1cm, but that damn Polar Vortex is taking another swing thru here this week...

    I don't think we are done yet.

    I was thinking we might be done here (Mid-Michigan) but somehow have this feeling were not. Nothing significant in the forecast for the next 5-7 days, but the temperatures appear to stay cold through the beginning of March. Usually once we hit March 1st, its like someone hits a switch and plow-able snow is done, and from there on out you might get some salting or sidewalks, but this year, I wouldn't be surprised if we got 10"

    I recall in the early 2000s having to plow 3-4" on May 1st. I don't worry about long term predictions, I take it one day at a time until my contracts are over... if we get snow afterwards I service the accounts I can trust automatically (and never had a payment problem) and call those I can't first, so they can't say I did it on my own...

    Anyone that thinks we are almost done is dreaming. This is just a quick breather.

    Lots more fun to come.

    I hope we get a couple more events through mid march. March is allways really slow and sloppy for landscaping here, so snow money helps.

    Ha ha framers almanac that's a good one, I followed it last year and it was so far off that it was comical. Might as well read some tea leaves.

    This year we've had only 50" of snow.

    Our average is 20"

    Last year we only had 5" to this point.

    But we hit our average of 20" with multiple snow falls in March.....

    It's slowed down, but not over. Cold air has returned and a bunch of nuisance events look to slide through our area....

    With this pattern, kids very well may have the option of making snow angels as they pick up their Easter eggs.

    Fat lady isn't singing here, her fat *ss is froze out in the snowbank. Below zero for daytime highs the middle of next week. March is usually the nasty plow month. Like pushing concrete.

    Happened here last year, In fact we got snow up till the middle of May.
    I hope that it doesn't this year we've have been pushing snow since the end of October.
