It usually only happens once or twice in the winter and it ranges from a dusting to around 2 inches. :rolleyes:
Heck, I do not even own a snow shovel. I'm orignally from Iowa so I remeber what real snow is.

Didn't you guys get dumped on earlier this year....:p

This one looks like it could be mostly ice for us.....:mad:

I didn't see a ring around the moon last night, so I don't think it will be as bad as the weather service is predicting.....:rolleyes:

Around here if you get 2 or more inches of snow it paralizes everything because for 1 we don't have massive snow removal equipment and 2 no one knows how to drive in the stuff.................:eek:

That's why I still have my Subaru Loyal....:D

We got 16 inches of the white stuff a few years ago and once I got her dug out, she went anywhere I wanted to go....

Now there calling for anywhere between 10"-16", and with winds predicted in the 20's we'll have plenty of drifts.................if we get that much around here the local governments will declare martial law like they did back in 1980 when 18" fell....................:eek:

And I work for the city and I'm an Alpha 1 employee...............so I have to go in on Sunday morning...........:(

It's starting to snow here.....:D

I still don't think we will see much out of this.....

However, up in your neck of the woods, you might see some wrap around from the low pressure that could make for some substantial accumulation.....:eek:

I believe we may get it this time. I have a feeling anyway, that I usually dont get. They always say it will and it never does. And we are overdue. We havent gotten any significant snow in years...Sorry to hear about your Alpha status Keith. What are they going to make you guys plow all the parks sidewalks and stuff or something?

Well......back when you were in diapers in 1980 we had the big one. The local news and the weather channel aren't matching in info right now with the weather channel calling for a lot less........right now.

We actually have designated building sites to take care, places like Police/Fire Stations, Rec centers, libraries and the municipal center, not to mention all of the schools parking lots and sidewalks.......quite a large list......:eek:

At least it's overtime pay.......................:D

You guys will get it now for sure. I know because I absolutely love snow, and whenever it is predicted, it never happens. This time is different.. I am out in Thousand Oaks, CA which means I am not there to jinx the weather so it will happen.. What is the prediction now? 12-16 there?

Hey what gives. Everybody keeps telling me "we don't get no snow here". I moved from L.I. N.Y. to get away from this crap. Well I guess it could be worse at least I got the big old beasty 4x4 and I know how to drive in this crap.:D

Have they mobilized the National Guard yet??? You guys are getting the big storm that passed south of us last night. Southern Indiana got 5"-7" or so. Missed us completely. We've only had a handful of measurable snows so far, & only one was like 5". Most have only been an inch or so.
BTW, I know I'm a longtime Chicago Bears fan, but I like the Colts too. It's pretty cool around here with the team going to the Super Bowl. Never been in a city with a Super Bowl team before. There's definitely a buzz around these parts right now!

Looks like out here in Chesapeake, we got around 7" of snow.
My teenage daughters had a great time in the snow and I even enjoyed tossing a few snowballs at them.

Same around here, after it stopped I went out and cleaned off my truck, don't want to get up in the morning to go to work and have to remove 7" of frozen snow on the windshield. While I was out I shoveled off my walkway and my neighbors across the street who's a 90 yr. widow, super nice lady.

Today was a long day, there are so many no driving people around here it ain't funny. If you have no snow/ice driving skills then stay home. I'm sure tomorrow will just as bad if not worst.....it's Monday

You're right Dave, it's nice while it's snowing but after it stops it's nothing but a mess. I know my employees don't want to see any. Luckily I just assign the locations to be cleared and don't have to do any manual labor.

Oh I know....Im doubting there are many guys with 30 years in doing much manual labor. Rightfully so....I didnt think you were out at the court house clearing a 4 acre lot with a snow shovel...lol
