Ah yes, we are starting to get that storm right now! It is a huge one too. My friend runs a snowplowing company and he was tracking the storm all day on the radar. He had to drop me off a while ago because he had to start getting ready for the heaps of snow!

Gosh, I just looked at a map, and you really aren't too far from me (as the crow flies, that is...)

Hope you stay warm, and don't lose your power!

Yup, thats the same system thats passing through my place now. It started snowing here about 9AM and we got about 7" so far. Now, for hte past 2 hours its been sleeting & raining. John has had to leave a few time to pull some friends out of ditches & sides of streets because of the snow.

We're supposed to get more tomorrow too!

This is how its been most of the day, low visibility & lots of wind!

Oh shoot....if you've got 7" so far, I better call my snow removal guy in the morning to make sure I'm on his list!!!

The snow is supposed to start around 5am then sleet by mid-morning, rain then sleet again. We just remembered we don't have a shovel but it sounds like we won't need it.

The kitties wake DH up at 5am so I sent him to bed with the camera to get the early morning pics.

That's so awesome! I can picture myself spinning around and around in my little civic down that road.

Here's some of the snow piling up on my patio, that was this morning, the rain has compacted it a lot more.

You should send Harley or Bayley out there to check the depth

Hey, Pookie-poo. Where in Michigan are you to get that much snow? I'm in the Detroit area. Went out to dinner tonight with friends and the roads were crappy, but I have seen and driven in much worse.

Here is our first real snow of the year, didn't stick but we are expecting 10-15cm overnight so I may have more pics tomorrow

I'm in the Tri-Cities (Bay City, Saginaw, Midland) area. About 2 1/2 hours north of you, I think...

Looks like your snow storm is headed for New England. Just heard the 11:00 o' clock weather report and says snow starting Sunday night all day Monday and Monday night,. heavy snow fall and expecting it to be well over a foot of snow..It sure puts me in the Christmas spirit!
post #16 of 26
Sigh.... Last time it snowed here was Jan 1999 and we got a couple of inches. My boss at the time called me and told me to take the day off since it was sooo slippery. People in my city don't know how to drive in snow since it rarely snows. I would love to have a white christmas at least one year.
post #17 of 26
Yup - that's the storm that will be in New England tonight. They're expecting 6-12" of snow in New Hampshire tonight and tomorrow. I really hate driving in snow

We only got about 3 inches last night. Today is supposed to be rain/sleet, so it could get dangerous. Right now, they've stayed on top of it, and the roads look to be plowed (at least mine is, lol...I heard them go by about 6 am.)

We got snow here

It's not anything like the northern states get, but I'm satisfied!
post #20 of 26
We got about 4 inches and the plows have been out on the main streets but our parking lot is a disaster
post #21 of 26
We got a few more inches last night, and a lot of rain. John said its hard to get at with the snow blower because of all the ice. Our landlord was up plowing our parking lots at 8AM. Its nice to not have to worry about that :Lol3: John takes care of his mom's though.

We got a very light dusting. It just makes everything look so pretty.
Freezing rain is on it's way though. Tomorrow is going to be cold and windy (50mph)
post #23 of 26
Looks like we may have had a touch of freezing rain here, but that's it! Just a few minutes north of me is getting more though. Guess we narrowly escaped it this time!

But someone please explain to me why my step-sister is suddenly here and getting ready to head back to Maine today in all of this!?! With my 7 month old nephew in tow!?! I'm guessing she has school tomorrow and finals are coming up, but what prompted her to make this trip on an icky weekend is beyond me!
post #24 of 26
Ours wasn't too bad, maybe 2 inches or a little less..no big deal!
post #25 of 26
I just checked and we're still snowing here...however it looks like its the snow/rain mix now. Whatever is falling is more "in line" then freely floating.

I measured Sun morning and we had about 8 inches but with temps increasing throughout the night and a bit of sleet it might have compacted a bit.
The Sat nite drive to Neil's christmas party was quite exciting however. First-we should have taken the truck as our car is pretty low to the ground and no plows so we tried as best we could to follow the tracks. We could go about 25-30 mph on our normal 55 mph roads! Had to pass a minivan though-a few minutes of additional excitement. When we finally got to Green Bay and close to the restaurant (Brett Farve's steak house which is about 4 blocks from Lambeau) there was lots of traffic and the parking lot was quite full. I figured there must be a big concert -there was Sugarland was in town) so finding a spot to park-interesting. Leaving was fun too as the snow was what I call greasy and Neil & I took turns trying to push car out of parking lot. More fun once out of Green Bay and driving the unplowed roads-which were worse. Had to pass another car as they were going so slow (about 20 mph) were were afraid of getting stuck. Made it to our road and driveway where we did get stuck so Neil snowblowed enough to pull car in garage. What driving fun!!
