    Yes the white stuff is falling and they are talking 3-5", might be a good time to see if my free snow blower will work.

    You call that snow :dunno:

    Heck, I've had the bobcat out to plow already, and we are barely a month into our 6 month winter!

    Ok Sierra Classic has got me beat, we only got about a inch here. All of you from the south should come up here and play in the white stuff, it can be a blast and clean up is quicker :)

    clean up is longer, takes a lot less time to warm up from 60* weather with the windows down, than it does from 20* weather with the windows up and heat on, so you can have your snow guys, we're good...

    Yep, looks like a normal winter around here too... The past few years have been unusually dry, heck, didn't even get snow until the middle of January last year....

    Most of the time the snow is about waist to chest deep where you haven't plowed all winter before it starts melting :)

    My father recalls a winter back in 72 when, just before the spring thaw began, they got about 6 feet of snow at the farm. He said after the county finally dug itself back out after a week or so, you could climb the piles left on the sides of the roads and grab a power line if you wanted to, lol! I'm hoping I see that much snow sometime, then I'd have a genuine excuse for not making it in to school :P Snow days are nearly unheard of around here, lol
