That's nothing. 20 years? You've had more than that inside of 20 years. There has been 56 inches this year in the Detroit area.

Maybe I should say that we have had more snow this year than any year in the last 20 some years. You see--when I get tired of snow blowing my mind gets real fuzzy.
Being sober will screw you up every time

Since you are a gun hobbiest, how about popping that darn groundhog so we can get some spring time. The world - or at least my part - will thank you.

Now that the kids are in their 40+ they have discoverer that a snow blower is better than a shovel--that means I don't have to blow snow--they use my machines ( costs them less$ ) also gives me something to do after they screw up my machines.
Who has more fun than parents & grand parents.

My daughter used to say " why does dad waste monet on SILLY TOYS (tools )
Now that I refuse to work ( elect. carpentry, plumbing, etc. ) on their houses--I notice that those silly toys are diappering from my house & not returning.
Ain't life a B----.

Is Dearborn in Mexico? Snowblower? I'd use my leaf blower to get rid of that much snow

Streets get plowed eventually. You get more snow than us and our snow is almost always dry so its fairly light.

Our average snowfall is only about 46 inches but what we get stays. Being on the prarires, the snow drifts so we get big piles to dig through. A 4 inch snowfall easily creates 4 foot drifts.

I'd say the eastern states and provinces get more heart attacks from shovelling because you get some heavy snow.
