First time I've been jealous of anyone with 4.9 inches in my life (I miss the snow).

This winter sucks. We're super far behind on snow, and it's been warm so often that the man-made snow on the ski trails is in terrible shape. There are only mild temps and no snow in the forecast.

Please send some of it to Minnesota. We are dying without it right now. Literally dying. I have only gotten to use my tractor and plow once this year - haven't even fired up the snowblower other than to get it tuned up for the winter.

This winter sucks. Come up here, snow!

Very nearly got on the I 44, that had people stuck in the storm for many hours. Paid attention to phone app and U turned off the entrance ramp.
