    I just got done using my 2-stage snow blower here in Hartland, Michigan.
    We got at least 10", it's finally slowed but the winds are 20-30mph gusts, so now drifting. Took almost 2 hours to do my 600 feet of driveway, front sidewalk/porch/etc.

    Very beautiful and scenic, I took some pictures with my point/shoot, may post them in the digital photo forum.

    Almost everything was cancelled today, church called and cancelled 10:30 service, my daughters friend had to cancel her 2pm B-day party.

    Kinda like the movie "Snow Day", but a Sunday. Too soon to say if they will cancel school tomorrow or not, some of the weather reports say we may end up with 12-16", that is a lot of snow.

    I can beat you. We got 12" Thursday which made for a great commute, and then another 6" this morning. So a good 18" of snow and it took me about 4 and 1/2 hours total to do our 300 ft of driveway.

    It seems like this winter is shaping up to be a bad one. My friends in NJ have already had 4 decent storms, and it's not even officially winter for another 4 days!

    So much for Global Warming :)

    We're level with northern Canada here but our temperatures are still in the positives. It's about 5ºc during the day. And I'd love some snow :eek:

    "What's snow?"; I hear you cry. :p

    We're at -2ºC but still no chance of snow for some weird reason.

    John Deere Tractors rule!
    yea my wimpy 28" 12hp 2 stage snow thrower is nothing compared to my neighbor and his tractor. We live on a private road and he also does the road, 3 passes and he's done.

    I'd be glad for any snow here, it's certainly cold enough but we never get it :(

    I think so too. Here in Ohio, we went from golden leaves on the trees to no leaves to snow in a matter of days. Now we alternate from snow to ice to rain and back every day. It is miserable. I hate winter. I need to move to South America ;)

    The storm cancelled family Christmas for me.

    It's a Christmas miracle!
