  8. Ok guys i talked to my bro in law today, he is a meteorologist for NOAA and he said that waould should be getteing ready for wet heavy snow. If it tracks right, as long as we get the cold front to come first, we should see anywhere between 3-6 inches. But more on the lines of 4-8 inches with heavy spots up to 10 inches along the I-80 line (sorry guys but i think ill make out good on that one). But who knows right now we will see later in the week :gunsfiring::yow!:

    My heart rate went up when I read that! I can't wait for the first push of the season. I am going to wash my truck tomorrow and post some pics, that will get it to snow.

Barely enough for a salting...Im just going to wait and see.....ill pretend like nothing is coming its still kinda early in the snow season...

    Here is my thought. Just put all our eqipment in a big pile in the shop. Removed all the starters for rebuild, threw out all our new shovels and washed our trucks. Next im going to wax the boat and bring the RV back to the park. Then sit back and laugh at all the weather people as I prey for more rain. I'm convinced if they would issue a heavy rain warning we get our BLIZZARD of 07-08. Sure it would be a small cat5 w/ 5"/hr snow rates thunder snow and maybee a snow funnel (this would be super cool)

    Well its worth a try!!

    I am from Rockford......originaly but then i got smart and moved north. why do you ask.

    i'm trying to help get some snow going as well. I pulled my convertible out of the garage today and drove it to work.....left the top up but normaly it is hibernating already. I did call last wednesday to drop the insurance to storage but my agent was out for thanksgiving....good thing cuz i needed the car today. after the first snow the plow truck is my backup work car.
