S.E. Michigan snow

Some of us got 7" of snow on Tue.& Wednesday of this week. Now we are slated for another 6"-12" tomorrow. So I went out and bought a new "electric start" snow blower this afternoon. Back doesn't like the pull starts anymore. When I turned around after I finished my transaction, there must have been a dozen folks waiting to speak with my sales person. Delivery will be in the morning.

4/10 of a mile below the border so we are looking at the same depth. Have 9" on top of the teardrop right now. Bought a snow blower three years ago and this is the first year I have used it.

Jeopardy clue: Subject line of this thread....

Question: (remember in Jeopardy they give you the answer and you have to guess the question)

Why is this Michigander singing in the choir in Seneca, SC?

And as I sit in Florida, I can sing: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Sister has a winter home in Bonita Springs. She sings that tune to me every time she hears were having bad weather. We're stuck here in MI till the DW retires.

Good to hear she is carrying the time honored tradition/game of Floridians.

Call the relatives up north and sing the snow song!!

The latest forecast is for 8-14 inches of snow in the next 24 hours (Southern Michigan). It looks like you purchased the snowblower just in time!

Washed the car today. Sat outside with neighbors and had a cold drink. No snow is south Texas.

Left the keys to my tractor with neighbor so he could plow his and my drive this winter.

Slightly off-topic. I lived near the corner of Wayne & Ford roads, but my job was transferred to KY in 1959. No snow here but -5 degrees tomorrow night. We used to winter camp at Gaylord in our Midas mini when skiing at Boyne mountain, and had to be sure to shovel the heavy snow off the roof. I walked way out onto the frozen little Traverse bay in Petosky, but I don't think it gets that cold there anymore.

To continue off topic for just a second? Actually it does! Lake Michigan will still freeze completely over on occasion. I've ridden snowmobiles from St. Ignace (on the far side of the Mackinac Bridge) to Mackinac Island several times! That area has quite the current, so it needs to be pretty cold for quite a while for the ice to freeze well enough for that trip to be possible...

A shot of a very frozen Big Mac (from west side of island), and some morons on sleds about half way between the island and St. Ignace, taking a time out for a pic of an ore carrier breaking ice coming through the shipping channel...

We live in Sylvania Ohio and are expecting 6-8" tonight. Its about time. I bought a snowblower 3 years ago because of a heavy snow winter the year before and got tired of shoveling. The snowblower has not been needed at all. Finally get to use it. Plus having fun with my AWD Mountaineer in the snow. LOL. I figure if it is going to be winter, it better look like winter. I still hate winter though.
