    What's going on ? last year we were nailed with blizzards, this time we get a dusting ....
    Hate to say it but this winter is going to be mild, possibly a few good plow events just going to skip the new plow purchase, and buy the LCD big screen to occupy my time till spring....:D

    Your welcome Mark. Do to our generousity on this side of the lake, we decided not to "steal" all of the moisture out of the front so your area's economy could benefit a little. :rolleyes:

    Is this the first snow/ice event of the year for you? Hope it went well, but seems a little late considering the last 2 years. Personally, I can wait a week or 2 here for the snow, but it looks like next week maybe time to go. :drinkup:

    We're really going to want to watch that mid-week storm. There is alot of conflicting information out there right now, but it has monster set-up from the look of the jet. There is NO way they can forecast a complicated storm like that this far out... their are totals flying around from 2"-14" depending on where you look (and add 40-50 mph wind gusts).

    Of course, we'll all believe it when we see it, but this definitely has good potential.

    I was out the past 2 nights as well, most of the real snow fell just north of GR, thats were most of my accounts are, I would say there is 6-8"+ on the ground there. Its always hit or miss with the lake affect, all depends on which way the wind is blowin!

    lol....all depends on the track of the low pressure....if it tracks a little to the northwest, we will see more rain, they are saying that the lake effect behind the low should be pretty good as well!! I hope it plays out just right giving us a dumping!! just a waiting game now to see what it does :popcorn:

    Dont forget we may see a few inches tomorrow night into Monday.

    You need to expand your horizons.

    Allendale had 12+.

    North side of GR had 8-10 I'd say.

    8 officially at the airport.
