    There's a question for all ages.

    As for amounts, are you talking the Kewenaw Peninsula, Marquette, Gaylord, Lansing, Detoilet, Benton Harlem, GR?

    If that's the case, I would estimate from 30" to 300".

    When will it start? It already has in the UP.

    Where are you traveling to? Just looked at the long range, next chance of snow is the 28th. Upper 40's and 50's till then.

    I plow rite aid here in kalkaska and they have a new manager. He wants a price for cleaning off ice on sign when it gets stacked on letters in front of building for safety. Something they started in grayling and gaylord

    Run an extention ladder up the 15 feet and charge them 50 a pop. Its not every day that your hauling a ladder around in a plow truck, something you'd have to make a special trip to do. Even though it would only take 10 minutes to do.
