When will this winter end? we are expected to get another 6 to 8 inches of snow

A Winter storm that is hitting Denver Colorado right now is expected to move into Minnesota and we could get as much as 8 inches of snow in central Minnesota before its all over. Right now I am looking forward to having a spring. after having the snowiest March in 17 years here in Minnesota. I wore out my snow blower skids blowing my driveway this year and I only used my blower once last year. We have yet to have normal temperatures for this time of year as well and last year at this time we had already had an entire month of 70 degree weather.

Snow

Where did you hear 8"? CCO this morning said 8"-12" between now and the weekend. And here I was going to drain the gas out of the 3 blowers I have set up right now over last weekend and didn't get around to it.

May get one or two more uses out of them yet this year.

I have this (tounge firmly in cheek) theory. Does everybody remember back in December when the end of the Mayan calendar was supposed to mean the end of the world? What if what if it actually means that we are stuck forever in December, like in "Grounghog Day"? Did ya ever think of that? It's still full on winter up here in Saskatchewan too and it's getting real old.

Because of you guys in Minnesota...although we are currently getting rain...I replaced my starter rope to day on my Simplicity. I swear the rope the guy used before me was Clothes line. It was dry and not pliable at all. Felt just like clothes line.

I to was going to drain my gas but I will wait until may.

March was quite the snow month. Maybe that snow forecaster who predicited a snowy winter due to Siberia's fast snowcover in October got it right???

Hopefully it dumps everything in Minnesota and leaves us in Wisconsin alone!

Sounds like eastern Minnesota and Wisconsin will get only rain or 3 to 5 inches total. Unfortunately we are in the heaviest part of the snow area and the projected amounts are 8 to 10 inches over western and central Minnesota. School for my 16 year old has already been canceled for the day. It's snowing real heavily right now.
