    I have noticed the MN thread was kind of a catchall for WY. MT,S.D., N.D. and WI.

    So let's start one seeing as we usually share the same weather patterns.

    Temp 8* and falling
    wind 5 to 15 mph W.

    Doesn't seem to be working. Maybe they all got sick of talking weather? Anyway, been cold as hell in "Burrmidji". No snow happening, just kind of sucks.

    Nothing here in the middle of South Dakota. Chance of snow tonight and tomorrow before noon. Nothing worth dragging out the equipment.

    We just had a clipper come through here to day. Laving us with about 2inches. Just enough to go out and plow a couple of lots latter on tonight.

    It looks like the U.P. of Mi is going to get 8 inches or more of lake effect snow.

    They were talking about the same for Duluth, MN on the radio this morning. Might have to take a ski trip over there! And bring the plow so I can actually try it out!

    Where the heck did you see that??? Last I heard (which I just got home from the bar...had my last two finals this afternoon) we weren't supposed to get squat. Now I might have to plow during my break???? Dang it.

    I wouldn't get too excited yet, they've been pushing the snow back further and further into the extended forecast. I think they are just playing it safe thinking there will eventually be some snow. When I checked a few sites this morning they were calling for a 20% chance of precip for burrmidji the next 10 days or so. Then again if we check back in an hour it will be different I'm sure.

    I'm assuming that is lake effect snow? I don't think we are capable of getting that kind of snow in the middle portion of the state anymore!

    Not sure if it is going to make it to your area?

    The weather guessers have been flip-floping on it.
    It has slowed down which means more higher snow fall amounts.
    When will it get here-- Fri night........
    We also have a High(cold front) coming down out of Canada, a clipper?
    The clipper could give us a couple of inches of snow also.


    Some of the weather services forget about the influence the Great Lakes has on storms!

    You better hope not, you might have to get out of the truck and shovel. :eek: :dizzy:

    Still remember where all your plow stakes are? :drinkup:

    Stay safe if you do get some. Snow, that is.

    Yea, I'm not looking forward to getting out of the truck..loL..

    Found the plow, shovels and snowblower. I remember how the plow works, but what do you do with the shovel again??:eek:

    Stakes, I could not decide if I should include them in the bid or to bill for them separately??
    So, the bundle of stakes are still in storage. :waving:

    Dave Dahl on channel 5 says 3- 6" for the cities.

    I've been watching Intellicast and the NWS every hour, on the hour (my wife HATES it when it looks like a snow storm coming). Anyways, earlier today, WCCO was saying maybe 1-2".

    Now it's looking like the storm is topping out at southern MN, and the snow that's still out around Denver / west. Nebraska might be breaking up a bit.

    Now they're saying 1" Thursday night for us, with periods of snow all day Friday into Friday evening.

    Figures, I'll be dog tired for Christmas, and have to put up with all the yahoo's on Friday evening, getting together for a night on the town when everyone's back home.... Can't it wait until Sunday, so nothing's open Monday???

    Wyoming area got 3". Forest Lake, more about 2". Lino Lakes about 1" of thick slush.

    North Branch came in about 2ish" at the most.

    Just got back from being up since 6 am yesterday.

    Gotta wait until checkout now at the 2 motels I do, guess I get to sleep for 2-3 hours....

    The storm stopped short of us. We got some freezing rain and a 1/2 inch of snow just enough to go out and salt a couple of lots and thats it.

    Next chance for snow is Sunday night???
