    Lake effect has been giving it to the west coat of MI, but it looks like more of MI is going to see the effect of this storm. Was moving only to the East, but now is moving a bit more North East, so the effects could be more than what was expected, or the wet stuff could just move up and give us the nasty part... With all of the Lake getting snow, I might just see about puttiing a plow on my boat:D Keep your fingers crossed MI, what have the totals been from the areas that have already received snow from this one? Just thought I would check..... **Let It Snow**

    Total here is about 1 inch, of heavy wet stuff. I am in the lake effect region, about 10 minutes from Berrien County Michigan, right were Indiana and Michigan meet on the lake.

    It snowed so hard this morning here in Muskegon, I though, ye ha a nice weekend plow (gotta love the weekend plows). We had about 1.5" Then just like someone shut off the faucet it stopped, got up to 37 deg and it all melted...........oh well good to see some others are getting some snow, this is my second night off in the last 11 days. I hear this next storm shows potential.:drinkup:

    Its going, going, almost gone,,,,, If we are lucky we might get to the 2" mark, but that would be only by luck, we just hit an inch about an hour ago, and its down to almost nothing... Roads are just wet more than anything, I might luck out with some of the non paved, but will not get my hopes up. Not even going to worry about it until 3, then might just go back to bed if there is not 2" or more.... Not worth it and I can take out the non paved in an hour so reset the alarm for 6, I have a heeling that will be what happens...... Good luck to all and what is the word with the next storm???? More info would rock..

    We got about 3-4" up here. Setting the alarm. The next storm should be interesting. Not sure where that rain/snow line will be.

    The local guy here said looks now like it will miss us to the south again, I dont remember the last time we had a "real" snowstorm here (not lake effect). Then again tuesday is a long way off, check on mon morning, they may know by then.

    1" is all she wrote.. Wet slushy and heavy. Already melting with it being almost 40 degrees here today, so I guess we will have to see what happens with the Monday storm... Looked really good comming down, but so do most things:D. Not giving up until spring, and even in Michigan you can't count on that being the end. I can remeber snow in May.... :D :D

    I got lucky today here south of detroit. Relaxing Saturday, got just enough snow for a few of the residentials to plow, and a friend of mine just bought a new grizzzly with a plow. He did the route for me for fun. Oh well, how do you bill that? ha. I love it.
    I have heard of 6" possible for tuesday??? Some weatherguessers are saying 1-3, some saying 6. I hate that

    Thanks for the heads up, just got the alert.....

    SNOW...OR A MIXTURE OF FREEZING RAIN...SLEET AND SNOW...IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY NIGHT. THE SNOW COULD BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES AND THE POSSIBILITY EXISTS FOR 6 OR MORE INCHES OF SNOW BY MONDAY MORNING.

    Not yelling, just copied it from the Weather alert..... :D

    I saw that, well I have had a few days off and am ready to hit it again, I saw the south counties it may be mostly rain. 3" would be nice, with about three days of lake effect after that.:D

    Well it appears to be a flop. Thats alright, Artic cold for this week means some good lake effect.

    More snow on the way. Winter storm warning for most of the counties around here.
