It started coming down sometime last night here and is still going. Every school for miles is canceled. I was pretty happy (didn't want to go to Human Communications today).

Well just an update... I woke p this morning 7 inches have managed to fall. 2 or more still expected.

Bonnie got stuck once this morning had to rock it out of the spot and spin the tires like crazy...

Made it to work in an hour and a half(normally takes 40 mintes)

are the main roads really that bad? i have to go from East Lansing today to Lapeer and was wondering how bad the freeways are. I'm guessing you take 75, how was it? Also, have you considered rotating your tires so the rear ones (possibly more tread) are on the front?

I need to rotate them next oild change. As for main roads... All depends on where you live 75 wasnt bad when i got down by Great lakes Crossing. However 69 was horrible.

I assume going to lapeer its what you will use. In flint they have really slacked on road care.. And just passed the Belsay exit(where i live) there was 2 accidents this morning. Just take it easy if the roads are clear speed limit is fine but bewar bridges are still icy!!

Had a fishtail episode on the highway this morning. Fortunately i kno how to drive and was able to correct. Coulda been really ugly though. I 2nd kev'* comment, all you guys please be careful out there.
