    How bad did you get it? They closed everything in Bay City. All four bridges were shut down for a while. Crazy!

    Atleast 14" and drifts 24" to 48" or so. Plows were out all night and even closed where I work for 3 shifts. Got a free day to work on a modified motor. Snow won't keep us from the winter party!!

    Just spent 14 hrs. straight in the snow plow truck, Totally sucks, put a dent in the rear bumper and put a crease in my garage door at home , nicked it with the blade when I angeled it to back drag. To lazy to get out of the truck and pull the snow away from the door. You definately start making mistakes when you are tired. Got stuck 3 times today myself and had to shovel and rock my way out !!!!! The good news is the truck and plow are still intact and the only thing hurt is my pride....................................Looking forward to rewarding myself with something shiney for my boat this weekend !!!!!EVERYBODY Clean those shelves off and bring some cool stuff to sell !!!!!!!!!

    Main roads are clear already but I'm still waiting for them to come down my street.

    22" most everything was closed till noon, county roads were not plowed and drifted across.

    the snow was tolerable, the winds took it up a notch, three to five foot difts in the driveway.

    Try down here where I'm at, 3/4" of rain, 5 hours later it got down to freezing, they shut every thing down. Shreveport La is supposed to get 2" of snow tonight and every thing will be shut down for at least 2 days there. I'd hate to see what would happen if they got 16" of snow here like in Michigan.
