Exclamation Winter is ariving!

Roughly from M-46 north is supposed to get hit with a winter storm Saturday night and Sunday. 6-9 inches possible in Midland area and up to 12 inches around Gaylord area. Blowing snow is also going to be a problem. It looks like the west coast of Michigan all the way down to the border will also be affected.

Good luck everyone. Leave extra space when driving and slow down WAY before the corners or stops.

Hmmm.... I just checked again and they have extended it down even under Lansing. So it looks like most all of the state will have some fun anyway.

A streamer off of Lake Huron earlier this week dumped close to four feet on us here in London. Schools were cancelled, no mail,etc etc etc. We are back to normal now but the banks are high All of our bad storms come from Michigan...aaaarrggg. What are you sending us next???

Re: Winter is ariving!

Looks bad for us here in South Bend also. Forecast calls for 6-10" of system snow with an additional 6-12" of Lake Effect Sun night and Mon with some areas totaling out near 30". Lets build up a big snow pack and not melt it until late March for a great morel season.

We're always willing to send that stuff across the big Lake to you!


Enjoy!

Re: Winter is ariving!

I understand and feel the warmth of your generosity...or is that just sweat from shoveling all that %$#^ from across the lake.. You really know how to lay it on thick.

Like big amish, I live downwind of Lake Michigan and get clobbered with Lake Effect snow.

One of our local tv stations predicted 80 inches of snow this winter.
At the rate we are getting snow, we'll have that before winter officially starts.

We didn't get as much as was promised, thank god !! We only got maybe 3 or 4 in. It always ticks me off cause we just start to get some good ice and it snows and insulates the ice making. I'm out of my summer panfish fillet stash and I'm ready for some ice water fillets to go along with all those mushrooms I stashed !!

I want to try this recipe for "Fried Crappie with Blood Orange Vinaigrette and Krispy Sweet Potatoes".

I stole this recipe from Kelly Johnson on the Michigan Sportsmen site.

Ice fishing this weekend, maybe.

I will watch the canaries in the coal mines for a couple of days (those would be the REAL aggressive ice fishermen), then I think by Saturday I'll be fishing. The lake is completely covered right now and I think tonight (Monday the 13th) is going to be damn cold.
