    I woke up to an inch if snow, after watching the 11 PM news last night, no mention of snow.

    They can't seem to predict weather within a 24 hour period correctly, forget about them guessing a week out!

    We will know as it happens, that's the only real way to know the weather these days!

    I've found that if they are talking about a significant storm a week out, you can guarantee that there will be some amount of snow. This weekends storm was predicted a week ago.

    The cold air meeting that warm air form the south will cause some bad weather, maybe not snow but usually some strong winds.

    I'm tired , the truck is tired , plow is about worn out, the paddles on the snowblower are worn out, the coil is shot on another one, the carb is shot on the 2 stage unit, the metal edge that was rivited to the shovel has partially separated from the rest of the assembly. There is a 14" of compacted snow/ ice on the ground out my window here. I'm out of de-icing materials. They are still calling snow showers/ flurries which in WI can mean zero to14" due to lake effect in this area. We have snow storms as late as the middle of May. May is rare, nasty dumps though end of April are not. Although they have become less frequent over the last 25 years.
    Good news is my contracts for snow clearing end in 7 days. Per call basis after that.

    ~ 8" here, hard to say since a lot has already melted off and/or compressed. Very wet heavy snow.
