Okay, here's the latest report in Michigan. My wife just talked to a friend in Kalkaska Mi. Currently, with the wind chill, it is -17 up there. They have so far this year, had 158" of snow.

Here in GR,it is -15 with the windchill factor and so far this year, we have had 88" of snow.

Next?

88" or 158". It's a LOT of snow. Though I suppose areas up in the high Rocky Mountains get a lot more...I do hope you thaw out before July. \:\)

Allright JD we may as well fess up. Jerry's weather woes are caused by Elizabeth blowing the cold fronts outta the west. JD and me are blowing the warm fronts from the Southern end of the continent. Cold+Warm=Snow+Jerry

How you like that equation Jerry!!! \:D

Yeah, blame Canada you blow-hards. It's all the hosers' fault ... we know...

We`re having temperatures above freezing and Saturday will be sunny and warm (relatively speaking). Sunday we will be back to rain...

The last week was a bit chilly though - there was ice on the water when I went for my morning row in the ocean - had to break through half an inch for a few hundred feet to get to open water....

Jurgen, you're giving me a bad case of early kayak fever talking about the rowing. I usually wait for April, but I just may have to load up and do some February lake rowing.
