    16 to 24" of snow yesterday into this morning.

    By noon all of the freeways and most of the major streets were clean and open.

    Hat's off to the various municipalities for the coordinated efforts to manage and move the snow and the great job law enforcement did to rescue those stranded.


    Good job to you all, very impressive!!!!!

    AS much as I hate winter here, Wisconsin is a special place.

    Oh, that happens a lot.
    But when it comes to snow we got a chip on our shoulder about it.

    WE scoff when Philadelphia cancels a football game because of 8" of snow and 25 degrees......we call 8" of snow and 25 degrees SPRING/April!!!!

    That was an embarrassment. And the only time I've agreed with Rendell!

    Our crews here did a great job also. All our steep hills had more salt on them than McDonald's french fries.

    The plow finally came down with the drift buster on it. Made one pass down the middle. They have already called school for tomorrow. We are still getting lake affect snow. Been coming down all day. Went yote hunting late this afternoon. Way to much work. Snow was over my knees. Thought I was going to have a heart attack getting to the back of my field. I need snow shoes. Didn't see anything. I would think they are getting pretty hungry and will be even more hungry tomorrow! Maybe I'll try some homeade snow shoes out of some sticks. Gotta figure something out.

    I find that lying down until the urge goes away usually helps.

    I use to call yotes all the time. Just could not get used to snow shoes. So got a cheap xc skies and that worked good.
