    SNOW SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW……. I really enjoy how everything looks now that we have a nice fresh coat of snow everywhere. Had to drive back from Muskegon to Cedar Springs late Saturday evening (11:30pm) and it was quite the adventure to say the least. I finally decided to get off the 37, due to a near miss,( someone slid into my lane) and decided to take the back roads, where that presented a new set of challenges, but I felt it would be better than a head on collision. As many of you probably experienced there was a bit of drifting on the less traveled roads. Busting through the 2-4 ft drifts , especially when someone would end up to far over in your lane made for a interesting drive. It was actually kind of fun, until the winds would pick up and made visibility drop to near zero. Was able to pull a few stranded cars out the snow, thanks to AWD….. Hope all fellow bloggers were safe this weekend. Here is to more snow on the way.:). WSW. WSW. WSW. WSW

      Normal temps in February are cold. If you’re getting excited about normal temps, you’re doing a darn good sales job to your own mind.

        Relative to the cold we are about to experience, normal temps in February will be a 60° warmer situation. I’ll take it at this point!! ;)

    Get ready to ROCK people – SNOW is on the way for today, tonight, Monday, Monday night and so on and so on! Get used to it!

    I had to work last night from 1 am to 4 am. I was pleasantly surprised at how clear the roads were. Ottawa and Kent counties have done a great job in the Hudsonville and Wyoming areas.

    Picked about 3, maybe 4 inches here last night/early this morning.

    Kyle, totally and completely gave an inaccurate forecast. We have a good 4 inches of new snow since about 8pm. He forecasted a dusting to 3 inches between tonight and tomorrow. Give more weather forecasting duties to Laura. she’s great.
