    We have 1/4" of icy nasty rain. As of 21:22 hours I have 1" of snow on the driveway, 2 vehicles and my picnic table. Waiting for my 2" trigger, expecting it around 11:30 or so.

    As of now we have had all rain here in Northbrook. Doesn't look good, I am thinking we are going to get all rain close to the lake.

    At least an inch, probably 2 on the ground here in Janesville, WI. Going back to bed to wait for call to go. I am thinking about 3am or so to leave here and head for Rockford. Have about an hour and a half before I can drop the plow once I leave here.

    We've got about 1.5-2" here now depending on the wind, etc. Rockford, IL is saying 1.9" at 11:30pm.

    Looks like I'm the wingman tonight. We have one truck that is still down (Single axle dump w/ 10' Plow). I'll be running errands, chasing parts or throwing some sidewalk salt, etc. Doesn't bother me....I get the same $$$ if I'm chilling out with a cup of coffee or shovin' snow around.

    As of 12:22 am here in Sterling, we have had all sleet never really made the switch to snow. Radar shows about another 30 minutes of precip and the main stuff is done. What a pisser, I probably will not even drop the plows.

    Just went outside at 12:54 am and we have a little sleet falling but it isn't even enough to stick to the ground with all the water from the rain we got. Oh well I am going to bed I don't see this panning out to be anything.

    Am leaving here now. I salted yesterday morning so hopefully my lots will be a bit easier to push that ice fall on. On my back patio there looks to be about 4 or 5 inches sitting on a layer of ice.

    Ought to fun out there I hope everyone stays safe.

    Gone to have some fun.

    NOTHING, but ice covering everything except pavement and it raining. Ice is really building up on trees and powerlines though.

    Nothing at all here! Few hours south I hear they got a good amount of snow, we saw a few flurries between 3 and 4 this morning! I was up like a kid on X-mas morning waiting just to be let down again!

    I need to find a new winter job or a hobby!
