I had my roof shoveled once this year, and I'm thinking I might have to have it done again. Same goes for getting the end loader back a second time.

    Anyway, here is video of someone I know who lives less than 5 miles from me. Notice the snow on his garage roof. The garage roof was already shoveled once this year.




    Damn, the snow is really piling up.

    MWP, my storm quickly changed to sleet with only about 6 inches. Thanks for the video, I really feel for you living there, those accumulations that you regularly see is beyond my comprehension, but, I bet that there is no other place on earth you would rather be.

    Yes, that is the 6 foot mark. However, I think what is happening is they are snow blowing their path over by the snow depth gauge and then fresh snow comes on top of it. They may even have shoveled their roof and then snow blown it in the gauge direction. However, in less than 2 weeks we got hit by a couple of nasty storms. Yeah, 46 inches of snow since Feb 3rd.

Now I need to get an end loader to make room for more snow. Snow removal will cost me at least $1,200 this winter. Bluestacks Kodi Lucky Patcher

    Here is a chart for one of the snow belt regions in the U.P.

    Difference is when we get a storm the storm comes and dumps a couple feet of snow then the lake effect kicks in for a few days then the next storm comes along. From Feb 3rd to Feb 15th we got 51.5 inches of snow which was pretty much non stop.

    Damn, another foot of snow last night. It was just a precursor to the main event where they are calling for up to two feet of snow this weekend. I have a sign on the the utility pole in my yard that says high voltage. The snow is up to the middle of the sign.

    This time of year you will find more snowmobiles than cars in the U.P. I remember coming back from a blackjack trip many years ago and there was a bad accident where the snowmobile trail crosses the road. It must of happened about 10 minutes before I got there, because the ambulance and cops were just arriving. Heck, we have more snowmobile deaths than car accident deaths in the winter. We have like 5 deaths in one day this year.

    One half inch of snow in Vegas will give way to two feet of snow in upper midwest.

    Snow doesn't stop him from getting to the casino.
