    The frost line at the cottage in west Michigan is over 3 feet, footings have to be 48 inches.

    well those of us that live in Michigan are getting hammered with snow and high winds. My area has at least 6 inches since around 5 this morning and the call is for up to 12 inches. Jon for you that is frost.
    Susposed to get a break tomorrow and then on Sunday it starts all over again. I think I'm really going to hate the snow plow driver before this is over.

    We're just across a couple of (Great) lakes, and we are getting hammered with the same weather system; Dave teamed up with another installer today to do an out of town job, our old van is parked with a ton of snow on it. My job to shovel out this afternoon while he's gone. Deb

    Stay safe, everybody.

    Never seen it so foggy here, I mean never.

    Today it finally cleared off about noon. It had been foggy for 3 straight days. I mean thick all day, not just the morning. Thought I was in the London Fog!

    Daris down closer to detroit we didnt see the plow trucks until after 3 pm, I drove to Clarkston and Utica and the only road plowed was Woodward and then only 1 out of 4 lanes.
    10 mph this morning on I75 with little traffic, folks should stick to the side streets if theyare not confident enough to drive on the highway.
    Talk about Frustration I even left 45 minutes early and was still late. ran late all day good thing schools were closed, and a couple of folks had to stay home with the kids.

    I don't know how you guys and gals do it up there where it gets real cold like that??


    I'd look like the Michelin Man, with at least 5 pairs of heavy duty, thick, long john thermals(tops and bottoms), 3 pairs of socks, with my 1000 Thinsulate boots, jeans, a flannel shirt, with a sweat shirt and a hoody pull over, and my military parka my dad got in Greenland, a scarf or two, gloves and goggles.

    I only passed it on to CP............ I know he didn't want it, so he might have passed it farther east, with a little bit of curveball spin on it. :hu:
    I'll see if I can fix it up for ya after Christmas. (I'll probably be kinda busy watching the TV this week) ;)
