Finally we are actually going to get some snow! I think total snowfall for the season is under 10" so far.... :doh:

another reason I need a backhoe and push box :$:



Accuweather.com forecast for Pittsford, MI 49271:

1/31/11 Evening:
Very cold with snow, accumulating 1-3 inches

2/1/11 Day:
Cloudy, breezy and cold with a bit of snow, accumulating up to an additional inch

Night:
Blizzard conditions with strong winds, low visibility and heavy snow, accumulating 1-2 feet

2/2/11 Morning:
Windy with snow, accumulating an additional 3-6 inches

TIMING...SNOW WILL DEVELOP TUESDAY AFTERNOON...EXPANDING IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY TUESDAY EVENING. SNOW WILL CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...ENDING WEDNESDAY EVENING.
* MAIN IMPACT...HEAVY SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 12 TO 18 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.
* OTHER IMPACTS...SUSTAINED WINDS OF 15 TO 30 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS WOULD SUPPORT WIDESPREAD BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW...HIGHLY IMPACTING TRAVEL.

I hope it dumps hard. But I am sure it will just wind up being a dusting.

I hope we get more than 6"! I've got a new toy to pay for :$: The trip to Byron Center Saturday was interesting!



any snow over 6" is a lot more fun to push around than 5" and under :banghead: Im getting tired of using the leaf blower to clear the sidewalks! :thud:

I'll believe it when I see it.
I hear people say the same thing about your projects.........how odd:confused013:

As for the snow, I would prefer that you guys get it and it stays dry and sunny here. Our "latest" forecast is calling for snowfall "in excess of 12"

well i'll be down there wednesday, so if any help is needed other than what is needed at my sis and bro in laws just let me know. i'll be down there probably till sunday maybe even longer but we shall see.

mayb a few of us can get together while i'm there, my bro in law needs to meet some of you guys since i don't think he has. brian knows where they live, maybe we could get a bonfire going one night or something.

maybe bbram could have a wrenching party since he is always breaking stuff :hehe:
