    Ouch! Especially coming from Kentucky. That is where the toothbrush was invented. Anywhere else it would have been a teeth brush.;)

    Sorry, I should correct myself, there is a "southeastern" wisconsin thread, where everyone seems to contribute, I forgot there were other parts of the state....there is also wisconsin in networking

    It's about time we have a posting from Wisconsin, I thought about starting one but haven't. It's great to see someone from NE Wisconsin. Do you think we will get snow for Thu-Fri or will we get rain, I'm hoping for snow, I'll just have to bring the family with me to open up presents in the truck. lol
     
  7. Should re-name the thread NE Wisconsin ha, we have a Southeast Wisconsin thread. Sounds like you guys might be getting more snow that we will down here, looking more and more like a salting event but who knows.

    IMy guess is we'll get mainly snow with a little sleet etc. Probably not as much snow as originally thought. Probably go through a lot of sidewalk salt and lot salt after the wet stuff is cleared and the temp drops.

    They are saying anywhere from a foot to sixteen inches here in Eau Claire area? Probably get 4 inches.

    I am south of Antigo. The weather stations do not want to give us much info about the storm coming, because they do not know anything yet...lol. I gotta get me one of those jobs. Anyways, they are undecided on if or how much rain mixed in with snow. Could be a nasty wet heavy snow for me to plow.

    I just watched ch 11 and he said 4 to 8 inches but last computer models have pushed it down to 4 to 6. I'll take it since you poor guys down south and not very far from me are just getting rain, Guess we got lucky. I do hope It moves south for all of us though.

    I used to watch 11, but since the digital tv thing, I cannot pull that channel in. But channel 7 in Wausau would not even give any idea of an amount yet. So if they are forecasting 4-8 or 4-6 by you, then I can definately count on plowing a good amount of snow. So thanks for the update from channel 11. I appreciate it.

    Alot of uncertainty here yet especially if it tracks east at all we will get whacked pretty hard again. one thing with this storm is that is is supposed to last even until sunday with light snow. I guess I will be catnapping in the truck again.

    At noon they (Wausau station) said 3-5' and I was at the low edge of that, now 10:00 news shows 4-6' and now I am in the center of that amount range. So I am guessing the total amount I get will continue to increase. I am hoping that the rain goes someplace else. I would rather plow 12" of normal snow than 4 inches of wet heavy stuff.

    If you are hoping for big amounts of snow, I hope your wish comes true. I am hoping I get nailed here too.

    currently under a blizzard warning here next to the lake. 12-20" of wet blowing/drifting snow. I'd rather not see that much wet snow. With the wind, those drifts turn to concrete fast.
     
  20. Well hope you guys are safe and can get that snow moved and get some time with family. Hope you dont get that much, but enough to make a good amount and not break anything. Merry Christmas
