    I peaked out the window at about 8:30 and thought the weather guy was smoking something, then I looked out at 10:30 and we probably got over 2 inches already.

    Damn - same here. Last hour or two it has been falling - powdery stuff but still had to clear 2" off path to house from office and soon when i quit same again.

    Then in morning - oh my - it'll be snow blower and more shovelling. Hopefully the system will pass thru quick but - looks like an 8 - 10" deal.

    Sheesh - winter only just starting too.

    Bud,

    We've gotten 8.1 inches since 4:00 pm (NE Indiana).

    Miggy - yeah - you're mean

    Rocky - I think you are just off North edge of this system.

    Our snow stopped about 5am and here we have about 8" - that means my son higher up with have had a foot probably. ****** tho - powdery stuff and -Grrr - wind blowing up. Doncha hate that - blows it around. I want to snow-blow the driveway but the wind will offset my efforts .. hate that.

    That ABS thing Bud - sounds bad! I had a recall on my Silverado so they could check just that - turns out mine OK but the risk was the system cutting in at low speed when it shouldn't - and on slick roadways not good!
