    Crazy. We had 16.5" last weekend. We had over 1/2 of the total snowfall all of last year in one storm.

    i kno the feeling, its even alittle depressing at times, all the fall cleanups r done. Watching the weather forums, and models just makes me nuts, storm no storm ugh. i just try to keep busy, take my dog for walk, read, and even try to help with the house work at times, its early in the season, just take it one week and at time.

    if the local news is right maybe we will get a little snow this week. Time will tell. Its early yet but sure seems a lot like last year, warms up it rains, gets cold nothing but atleast some parts of the U.S. have snow. I beleive its coming we just have to be patient.

    Looks like close to the same pattern as last year so far--warmer and drier for many parts of the country. Sections of the Upper midwest being the exception. A good bit of the Southeast back into the severe drought status which means the Gulf is still inactive. The Gulf of Mexico used to produce some powerful winter storms that would head far north and then east. Going on 7 years now that the Gulf hasn't produced much of anything. The SE used to have at least ice storms on a regular basis. I can't even remember the last Ice storm to hit SC

    Yeah I don't see snow in Ohio until January. Temps are too high. I believe next winter will be snowy. This will be a repeat.

    I was looking to get a new plow this year but if this keeps up there is no need for it , i will just keep limping the old plow around. hell it still sits in the back of the garage and the forcast tells me it can stay there for at least another week lol

    as of this morning weather underground and accuweather are forecasting that we are suppose to get some cold air starting thursday night with snow and they say 2 to 4 between then and friday, its been so warm it probably won't be a plowing event but with the cold it should be a salting event.its also showing you guys north of me should see some as well, lets hope we do. But just in case i will hook up thursday as one of mine is a zero tolerance. I'm not holding my breath but i will keep my fingers crossed. Be Safe and Have a Merry Christmas
