Anybody missing the snow this year?

I live in Minnesota and this years winter snow fall has been about, well nothing. I don't recall the last time I have looked at my yard in February and can see the grass poking up in spots. It been a little cold for a few days but nothing crazy.

Even though I treated myself to a new big old blower this year I don't find I'm missing the snow, still recovering from the last 2 years maybe! Who knows maybe we will pick up a foot or two at the end of March

I'm going to keep sending the snow to the east coast, might as well see what kind of records you can break, you can thank me later.

To answer my own question after a few weeks reflection, I'm not missing any snow this year!

What say you?

I wish you could have our snow!

Well, to be honest I'm actually glad we have copious amounts of it right now as that's the justification I have for buying the two you see in my signature for the sum total of $3211.44 during the past 3 weeks.

My wife would be all over me if the terrain were as barren as it is there where you are. I've got some machinist friends in MN and they were just telling me the same thing. Not enough snow to buld a snowman, barely enough to toss a snowball!

I am hoping that we get a couple good falls before spring. I am looking forward to giving the new blower a good test.

For the latst 3 of 4 weeks Gilson parts have been going largely to new England states. MN, MI, WI etc are usually where the volume goes, not lately.

The central snowblelt got a lot of the little feeder storms but they have been blooming on the eastern seaboard.

I was missing it until four weeks ago. We've had plenty since.

I like snowmobiling and this winter sucks. There has been a stagnant weather pattern which has been funneling moisture up along the eastern coastal areas since December. We are in a snow drought while parts of the eastern coastal areas have received 2 winters worth of snow already.

It's ugly here. Way too much. I'd love to share the "wealth".
