    definitely feel the same way. We have had 28 inches so far less than the 36 we had at this point last year, but still far ahead of an average pace. We usually get 34-41 inches southburbs/northburbs. not complaining, but sure would love another 20 inches separated into 10- 2 inch snowfalls and several half inchers to go salt. What's the average for your area in michigan and where are you now?? Don't worry it is only January. We got 2 snow events in april last year!!

    Around here it is usually 80"-100" average, we have gotten some snow, but it is the current weather that is exciting, mid 30s and it is going to be like this for at least 2 weeks, I have nothin else to do right now!

    Bored here as well!! Decided to start putting plans together to remodel the famly room. Getting some foam blown in the walls, im putting in new windows and a new slider, redoing our wood burning fireplace into a gas fireplace with fireglass, and redoing the brick surround on the fireplace and putting up marble. Im sure it will start snowing like mad as soon as I get things ripped apart!!!
    What a boring winter so far!!!

    This is about the lamest winter I can remember, a whole 42" so far, about half of this time last year. I think the girlfriend is praying for snow too, she says I'm getting annoying.:p
