    It all started in in the last millennium. When the Earth was young and we got snow all winter long. The first yr plowing we had a Blizzard and it dropped 3 feet of snow over night.We had to learn quick on how to plow that much at once. Another time we had 40 inches of the wet stuff over night and we went from thrusday morning to sunday night to clean everything up. And in 01 we got 7 feet of snow in 5 days by this time we were good at plowing and the lots we did had no more than 6 inches in them at any time. In 06 we had our Oct. snow storm and it dropped 36 inched of snow over night I was one of the few who was out plowing becausr i'm to lazy to put my plow away and it just sits in the driveway all yr.

    A little more recent then old man grandview tales:rolleyes:....Dec 5-6 2003 we had a low pressure system come up the coast drop about 10 inches in my area on the 5th, what made it cool during the morning of the 6th a upper level disturbance trailing the main system dump 5 inches in 2 hours. It was pretty watching the sky get real dark and snow like no 2morrow.
