Well, all of the news casters have been going nuts about "snowpocalypse" coming to the east.

Looks like Doc will bear the brunt of it because they are calling for 3 feet of snow around his area. They said, depending on the track, we could see a foot of snow or maybe 1 inch.

I hope you stocked up on plenty of Bud Light Doc.

Most of this storm is going south of me, just calling for a few inches. But the wind is supposed to be 55-60 MPH. That's not gonna be a fun 12 hours. Should begin around dawn here.

White fluffy snow is good. Wet snow and lots of it is big problems. You all keep safe and stay put. We got 2 inches yesterday and another 2 tomorrow. Still going ice fishing. Walleye tomorrow and trout on Sunday. Doc limit yourself to 30 beer a day and you should make it through the weekend. :D

All those getting the "90-year" blizzard out East, ENJOY!! My 18-year old snowblower I think finally took a major crap on us but we've only had some light snow dumps since it died (it runs and moves but the auger just sits and makes an undesirable noise when I hit that handle). I should probably figure out what the issue is and see if its cheaper to repair it (given its age) or would it be better to pick a new one up as they start to clear (and go down in price) out for the season. Snowiest month may be ahead of us but so in ground hog day. The days are getting longer and March is usually the transition month to spring!!

The local weather people told us yesterday that we wouldn't see that much as it will stay further to the south and east. Well, we have close to 2 feet now and it's still snowing.

That looks familiar !! That's about what we have now Rick, but I think it's almost over, just light snow now. Take care.

Just measured 25 inches here but that may not be exact because it's starting to blow and drift. How are you doing up there Rick ??

The snow finally quit here Doc. We have the same problem with the drifting, one drift is about 44 inches deep. From the area of the yard that wasn't affected by the drifting I measured 27 inches.
