    8 inches so far-argh

    I just drove home after 7-8 inches of snow fell on my car and the road and it actually ripped the underside of my car off, boo! A big piece of plastic that looks like it covered the engine fell off as I backed into my spot in the garage. This was after I stopped to push a friend out of a snow drift IN THE STREET! I hate WI, more snow expected.

    Haha, I hate Wisconsin too, but for different reasons. That's why I moved even farther north!

    Heh, no cows where I was from (northern part of state). No nothing. Wisconsin is too boring, so I became a yooper.

    Looks like the snow will starting falling in da U.P. tomorrow sometime, but I'm not sure how much we're supposed to get. Looks like most of it hit farther south down by you.

    I've only lived south of Madison before moving here. From what I've seen of up "up nort" and "da U.P." I don't think I could handle there either! I actually washed my car and swept off the porch so the 10 inches of snow that was already there would melt in the finally above freezing temps yesterday. Guess I should have listened to the forecast! Oh well.

    They had only plowed a small area of road. In some places on the main road you're making your way and all of a sudden a cross street had been done and there was a wall of 8-10 inches snow in the road. I was going maybe 15-25, but hit a few of those which was apparently enough to take its toll. I was just glad I wasn't dragging a dead body- sounded like it for the last 1/4 mile! Firestone quoted me $350.00 to get a new one- I said "ah yeah, no."

    We're getting another 8-10 inches overnight, we are officially in a "blizzard" ugh.
