    Forecast calls for 2-5" during the day. So I wake up at 7 this morning, 1" on the ground. By 9am theres 10" in my driveway. So I scramble to get everyone going, we get to town and theres 3" there and done snowing. Here I thought finally a light fluffy 10" big $ and just barely breaks the 3" where it matters. Then I have to come home to 10" and my house has a steel roof, so all the snow from that has slid off and my doors 4' deep in snow, I had to do more work at home than anywhere else. One of those freak 1 mile wide bands that came through I guess. Jeesh.

    We had 29" here in Rochester in December. Roughly 8-9 pushes depending on client.

    What did Minn/st. paul get?

    January so far, couple salt spreadings and 1.7 " yesterday

    I would settle for the 3" here. I haven't seen anything since December.

    We had 44" in Dec. a new record for the month. Last year we broke the overall record for the season, so we may just do it again. I wish I could send some you way, like the $, but family time and sleep has suffered badly.
