Be careful out there...
« on: December 16, 2007, 08:16:31 AM »

My 65 mile commute took 2 hrs this morning with little or no plow activity along the way.

Why oh why didn't I drive the truck today!??!?!?!  ??? :-\

I took my wife to work this morning....   I-75 from south of Monroe up to Brownstown exit...   one lane scraped until we got as far as Nadeau road...   then just snow.....   Unless we get a lot of snow yet this afternoon it looks like the storm won't be as bad as predicted...   still bad enough....

I was going to shovel the driveway this morning....but then I came to my senses! lol.

Cold and windy - not my favorite.

I did push a yardstick into the snow, and it looks like we got about 4.75" (according to my highly scientific study - which you'll note is accurate to a hundredth of an inch ;)).  Does that sound about right?

lol.  You could always cut your grass with an electric weed whipper. ;)

Last year I waited for the neighbor to go out and start plowing his driveway, then I sent my wife out to shovel ours at the same time.  After seeing her out there fighting with that snow for a couple minutes he came over and plowed ours too. ;D

jk - I'm not that bad! lol.
