If their temp predictions are anything like their snow totals, we'll be safe.

I'm not worried too much. My whole property runs far downhill, with my house at the top 1/3 or so. The grading around the uphill side of the house needs to be improved, as occasionally we'll get minor water intrusion into the basement there...but I don't think this melt will be big enough or long enough for issues. Once spring comes and the large piles of snow melt away with a longer warm spell, then I'll be worried.

I do have 2 concerns: roof/eaves and the re-freeze. I've cleared most of the snow from around the edges of my roof, but there's still a fair amount of ice. I hope we get enough of a warm spell to melt that off. And once all this melts and then it gets cold again we're in for another icy mess. Not looking forward to that at all.

Not worried about the house, but the barn can flood, if the drainage around the sides isn't flowing. I need to go do some tractor work to make sure there's a clear path and it should be OK.

I hope cc is right. I know winter isn't over but high temps would be sweet for melting down some snow piles at my lots. Salt mines should be replenishing their piles for suppliers so the refreeze = $$$. I would also very much like to take out my motorcycle.

Drainage ditches dug to tonight, all set for the rain and warmth. I also found that adding second deadbolts on the other side of my big doors (so each overhead door has a draw bolt on each side) plus a piece of garden hose inside the bottom door seals really made a difference keeping water from going underneath the door seals.

I'm screwed. Hopefully my roof collapsing will get me a new house. I've had too much water damage over the last 10 years.

I'm worried. I'll have to drink a lot of water to keep the flooding at bay.

I pee'd my name into the 6' of snow in front of my house, pretty sure I stopped global warming.

Our paid hourly forecast for Lansing shows the peak hour next Thursday at 45 degrees at 2pm. Our forecast only goes out to next Friday.
