    But they are calling for 10 plus inches here on the lakeshore for tonight and tomorrow.

    Yeah - forecasting up to a foot by late tomorrow depending on how much comes down as rain/sleet or 'just' snow.

    Hi Sue,
    Actually I did get elected board member at large & I landed on the constitution committee too.

    If you live in Madison you must have snow by now. I live in Menasha and we have been getting pelted with snow since the last week of November. Now that sucks.

    I can deal with a mere 'pelting'. But two days of blizzard conditions under 5?? is really beginning to suck out loud. I cleared one pesky recurring drift out of my driveway five times in the 24 hours beginning at 11:00 Sunday morning. And it doesn't just blow out. That stuff is dense. Too dense to shovel. Too dense to push with the tractor. Too dense to just drive the blower through. It takes repeated assaults and an artistic touch to get through it without completely destroying the blower. I think I have already moved more snow since Thanksgiving than I did all of last year.

    I have 18" in the yard right now.

    I bought an 8hp 26" Toro last spring to replace a 25 year old Ahrens. Gave that New Toro to my mother for X-mas, Got an OHV 11hp 28" Commercial unit to replace it! Muuhahhahhaaa!

    I actually do the sides of the street down the block so the street stays wide. I live near a high school and the kids speeding down a street 12 ft less wide would be a bad thing. Plus I have a lot of elderly neighbors and ladies without snow blowers. i do a lot of drives, or at least the ends where the plows dumped. I LIKE doing it!

    And now rain?? Apparently tomorrow we're getting T-storms. Just what we need on top of frozen ground and all that snow - rain. In preparation, I ran the snowblower around the perimeter of my house (yep-on the grass) and created a 10 foot snow-free zone to reduce the chance of my basement getting wet. I hope it works. What a crazy winter!
