Welcome to the site Magnum 44..
We have traded our snow shovels in for heavy winter coats, hats, mittens and scarfs.
It's colder than a witches t_t here.
Thank goodness i got out of the snow plowing business a few years ago.
I think the only guy thats happy is my propane supplier.
I hope it warms up a little next month when my guys go back to work.
I'm not sure about the rest of the state, But here in Southwest Mich. I have got at least a foot of the white stuff in my yard. and I live in a rural area so the road crews don't do a lot of plowing on my road till the snow is melting in the spring and the snowmobiles are tearing my road up getting to the local trail.
You west side guys need to move over here on the lower east side (Ann Arbor). I've plowed my drive twice this year. I did have to shovel my sidewalk one extra time (wind blown). I'am ready for some warm weather (30-40 degrees).
I live in Gwinn just outside of Marquette. We got about 4 feet on the ground.We had a record last year of over 315" of snow.I do not think we will get that much this year.The big lake has started to freeze,so it will shut down the lake effect.we might get a couple more feet but thats about it.
I really sympathize with you guys up in Michigan. I grew up in Fairview and was also stationed at KI in the UP for seven years. I do know what snow is but now that I grew a little older and a little wiser, when I hear of snow in the forcast, I head for the sunny beaches of Florida. I will be back in the great state this May. My wife and I work at the KOA in Petoskey during the summers.
Not much snow this year but the cold along with the wind has been a killer.
I've had guys working outside for the last month getting the asphalt plants ready for the year and there ready for some warm weather (30-40 degrees).
