Let it snow!

How much is going to come down in your area (if any at all)? Anyone already have some on the ground? We're expecting roughly 4-6 in. Do some of you do snow removal in the winter?

We have about 8 inches on the ground. calling for 4-8 more from the storm tomorrow then more lake effect showers. We have had 26 inches so far this year. Only plowed twice though, hoping for another 15 or so this season. Talking about leaves, many of ours are still on the ground since the first snow came early.

One to three inches or four to seven inches depending on NOAA, Accuweather, Weather.com.

And it must all be melted on Monday so I can start finishing my last clean ups this week on Tuesday.

We got 14 inches a week or two ago. We still have several inches covering everything. I take my winters off. I like the idea of working hard for 7 months, and relaxing for 5.

Only had one pushable event here so far, but temps have been COLD.
To the guy still doing clean ups...how is that even possible? Even with no snow, leaves etc would be froze to the ground so hard you would never get them up.
