I know what you mean Expert. The blowing and drifting snow is really bad here. Snow removal here is a lost cause. I have only done it twice today, and finally I just gave up. It's drifting up to 2 feet up here.

new figures out, 10-16" inches expected with drifting by Wednesday morning. And then another storm system for Thursday and Sunday of this week.

up to $1.76 gas here, What about others? Go to www. gasbuddy.com for current rates. It's amazing that where I am from, Clare, has the second highest price in the state.

actually right here. We have only received about 2" inches today so far, and only about 1 1/2 to 2" last night. Very disappointing compared to what the forecast said. We had more drifting than anything else.

I did snow removal early this morning, and then just got done with 2 commerical accounts about 30 mins ago

We got a ton of snow yesterday. More to come this weekend. I'm starting to wear out.

I am dead. I am so tired. Please no more snow! We got about 8 inches of snow, but the drifting caused some areas to be 2ft+ high. Not fun.

I am done for the day.
