    Well it looks like we will get 2-4 inches by Tuesday morning I ure hope we don't get too much freezing rain as highs are supposed to be around freezing. The equipment has been patiently waiting since the 26th of december. :D:D:D

    I have an Ice road, on Rainy Lake Nothern MN, so it will snow daily now. This is the latest ever for getting on the ice.

    We were in the up to 4" range when it all started! Did end up having to plow some commercial lots last nite though.

    As the trend has been lately, it tracked southeast of us yesterday. Got 1/2" at most. I'm getting sick of all the teasing. Have not made a full push since Dec. 26th as well. Over three feet that month and basically nothing in Jan. Lets hope Feb. helps us out.

    Belinda doesnt know what the hell she's talking about. The model's have been showing the storm going NORTH, not south! I can only hope it comes south like every other storm has so i'll be right in the bullseye!
