Man....! I am so tired of the hype! WZZM is terrible, there always like...." when the storm of 2011 hit....WZZM WAS THERE!!" HAHAHA LOL. 13.5" I got about 7" on my deck and driveway, far from there 11" predicted.

My wife works at menards, people are get so drawn in by the hype, rushing in to buy snowblowers, generators, batteries, canned food!. And there all like, OMG the STORM is coming! haha lol

WZZM's Juliet D. even siad this last night "......and we'll be here after the storm....blah, blah, blah...." like its the end of the world and something catastrophic is going to happen!

yeah, im watching WZZM right now, they are bad, but WOOD TV8 is way worse. that susan giha or whatever her name is is unbearable to watch.
im not going to work untill later, im going to drive my wife to work at 10 then head to work, give the plows a chance to catch up, my road looks like a 2 track. the snow seems to be letting up so i dont think were going to get much more.

My truck has once again left me with a good feeling. Or maybe the the good feeling was getting to work with the entire 40 minutes extra I gave myself to get there left. The gas station that I stop and get my coffee at wasn't plowed and had a wide plow drift in front of the entrance. Still got my morning joe. Hell I could have slept in and still made it. The nicest part was being able to ease up to 30mph using the unplowed lanes on the e-way.
It's not as bad as the news is making it, but it was still nice enjoying total freedom of movement and not having to worry about encountering unplowed stretches.

well my truck has a 1/2 inch of snow on it, my steps had almost 2 ft of snow on them because the snow drifted right on them, and there looks to be a good 4 ft snow drift on my garage and 4 inches on the road. Still snowing.

I just used a gravel shovel to clear a huge pile of plow sheddings and a knee high drift from my drive and beat my neighbor who started at the same time using his snow thrower on his same size driveway.
