    Being on the south side of Lake Superior we don't get as much cold but do get 4X the snow. Sometimes less snow looks good and looks like cold high winds, snow is headed this way. It was 0 yesterday and 2 degrees this moring.

    Well Farmer, funny thing happened this morning. Went for a run through the sprinklers as it was a cool -27 degrees outside...great time for a little jaunt thru some refreshing H2O right? Yeah right. First pass I made it thru okayxysport ...second time thru an Iceberg flew out of the hose and smashed into my Titanic head...:dizzy: Sunk like rock.

    Seriously though, -27 air temp -54 windchill. Finally starting to cool down a bit here.:eek:

    We could only muster up a -21 for last night. In fact I was up watching the Olympics till after 1am and it was warming up thru the night. My 2 year old got me up at 3:30am and I checked the temp and it had warmed up to -17 at that point.

    Ready for spring here!!!!:bluebounc :bluebounc

    Well Farmer, how much did you get? Depending on what part of town you're in around here we got 6-11 inches. Quite a spread, but we had a very narrow band pass over, I got about 9 inches here at the house, 6 in town, and 11 at a friends house.

    We got 12 1/2 inches of light fluffy snow here. It started at 8am and stopped at midnight. It was nice to have something over 3" to plow:waving:

    It is just starting to flurry a little here.
    The weather guesser is predicting 2 to 3 inches for overnight and tomorrow for us.

    Looks pretty similar to our forecast. 1-2 tonight with another 1-3 possible for tomorrow, then rain on Wednesday. No matter how much snow we get tomorrow I'm not plowing from noon to 4 as I'm taking my 4 year old boy to a kids Perch Derby. We be fishing tomorrow!!!!!!!:redbounce :salute:

    LOL! I agree, fishing with the kids beats plowing any day!!:nod:
    1-2 should be no problem for the "Mighty 1/2 Ton" you should be done in no time, If you have to plow at all.:waving:

    Good luck!!
