    I checked the accu weather forcast. They are saying 3-6 inches for my area.
    Some other sites like noaa and the weather channel are saying we will get an ice event. Either way it equalls money! payup

    ...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY EVENING TO TUESDAY
    EVENING...

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHICAGO IL HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM
    WATCH.

    THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS FOR THAT PART OF NORTH CENTRAL AND
    NORTHEAST ILLINOIS...AND NORTHWEST INDIANA ALONG AND NORTH OF THE
    KANKAKEE AND ILLINOIS RIVERS. SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS OF ICE FROM
    FREEZING RAIN ARE LIKELY OVERNIGHT MONDAY AND THROUGH THE DAY
    TUESDAY.

    A MIX OF WINTER WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO OVERSPREAD THE WATCH AREA
    MONDAY EVENING. IT WILL START AS SOME LIGHTER SNOW AND SLEET...THEN CHANGE TO FREEZING RAIN OVERNIGHT MONDAY NIGHT AND EARLY TUESDAY MORNING. THE FREEZING RAIN...MIXED WITH SOME SLEET ACROSS FAR NORTHERN ILLINOIS...IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY TUESDAY.

    THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR A QUARTER TO A HALF INCH OF ICE
    ACCUMULATION IN THE WATCH AREA FROM THE FREEZING RAIN. THERE
    MAY ALSO BE SIGNIFICANT SLEET ACCUMULATIONS NORTH OF AN EVANSTON TO ELGIN TO MOUNT MORRIS LINE. CHECK SUPPLIES OF FOOD AND FUEL AS TRAVEL MAY BECOME VERY DIFFICULT. ELECTRIC POWER MAY BE INTERRUPTED DUE TO HEAVY ICE GLAZING DOWNING POWER LINES. CHECK THE LATEST FORECAST BEFORE MAKING TRAVEL PLANS.

    Who is Going to Be Salting ?? :eek: ME ME ME payup
