    I'm about 45 minutes west and we have 3 1/2" so far. All except for all the people it would be hard on, I'd almost hope for a day w/o power.

    Well, it got here.

    Edit: 6" and still snowing. I know it's a dusting compared to you folks up north, but it nearly shuts things down around here. DO NOT WANT.

    I saw it on TV. Lot of cars slidding around. Stay home if you can. How often does Alabama get snow?

    MN and WI get some snow. You got the big stuff for moving the snow. I do not understand why the south does not get some good road snow plows to handle the ice and snow they are having now?

    I have need to move stuff around the yard and would rather not have to do a more massive snowblowing job. If big snow would hold off a couple weeks, I'd appreciate it.

    See what you guys can do for me on that score.

    Normally, 1-2 light snows a year. But we had 3" on Christmas Eve/Day. Last night - got 6-8". BIG for here. Nothing is moving. Road crews have been sent back to shop b/c too dangerous - LOL. We don't have salt anyway - just sand. A County Commission issued an official proclamation - "The roads are impassable!" That really helps. LOL

    We got about 8" in wNC and it's still snowing. Nothing better than a snowy Monday home with the boy. He still got skooled. Snowballs 101 :lol:

    I don't know when they'll plow and I don't care.
