Another Four Inches of Snow Cover for Mid Michigan

Another Four Inches of Snow Cover for Mid Michigan

It doesn’t seem like we even lost our snow from previously but I guess it’s a good thing that we did.   We received four inches yesterday, exactly what we lost in the thaw.  We also have the frigid temperatures that we had over the holidays.  That we could do without.  Hopefully, this won’t last as long as the previous cold spell.  Regardless, what will be will be and there is no use in complaining.  Freezing rain preceded the snow making for very hazardous driving conditions yesterday.  I don’t think they are much better this morning.  I’m hoping that the snow plows are out today.  With it being a weekend, it’s hard to tell.
