meh. I am not getting my hopes up. I bought a big snowthrower 2 years ago and have used it maybe 3 times. I am ready, but doubt it will happen. I expect a light dusting with flurries.

if there is any accumulation it will most likely be from all the salt they are dumping on the roads in anticipation

I was watching the toledo news last night. The way they make it sound, it's not going to come this way.

I bought a big snowthrower 2 years ago, and only used it twice last year.

oh 2-4" tomorrow night for Rochester


I love how they put out a fucking advisory for 2" or snow, like the world is going to end.

I would think Advisory's should be left for important things, like if we get 2-4' of snow :Sonicjay:
