    Had our first snow last night. The weather men were saying anywhere from an inch or less, to three to six. We didn't even get an inch and by noon the snow was all gone. Got some salting in thought. Just keep doing my snow dance, hopfully it will work one of these days. :gunsfiring:

    Im in mchenry county. They were predicting 2-4 for my area. What did we get? rain/snow mix. They said if the temp was 2 degrees colder, it would of been all snow. I know how your feeling boys, Im sick and tired of getting no snow. :mad:

    a joke is right!

    Here in Chesterton, Indiana we got maybe 2 inches of slush. By mid afternoon it started melting off. I even took an unpaid vacation day for this "event"! :realmad: But unfortunately it's all a part of this business; we can't really count on the weatherman being right all the time, until we see what it's doing outside with our own eyes.

    Here in the Quad Cities(Iowa/Illinois Border) we barely got 1 1/2". I guess we all can't be lucky like the east coast.
