What is this, the Monte Carlo Forum, or the National Weather Service?

Good morning guys. Hey, the weather is probably the most interesting thing we have in the off season.

We're already at 34 degrees this morning with some snow still falling - we got 2.5" overnight. Took me twice as long to get to work. Suppose to be 53 degrees on Thursday!

Michigan Monte Carlo Club just posted info for this year's Spring Meet! Hope some of you can make it, check it out here...

Good morning guys, don't forget to check out our Spring Meet info in my post above ^

Very icy in some spots on the way into work this morning. Looking at mid 30s today, mid 40s tomorrow and near record highs in the mid 50s Thursday. Now they're showing we could get 6-10" of snow this Friday/Saturday as the next system moves through bringing the cold air back with it.

Well, in central NE we have mid 40's today and it is sunny too.
However the weather is supposed to turn bad later on Wednesday and then on Thursday we are supposed get a total accumulation of 8 inches but they have toned that off some might only be 6 inches.
Maybe if I scoop or sweep every inch off the drive I will be able to keep up with it??

Good morning guys. Today's 46 degrees. Tomorrow is showing 55 for us... about 65 degrees warmer than last week! Then we're back down to 18 degrees Saturday. The track of this snowstorm looks like it's shifted a good amount to the east since yesterday, which means our snow totals would be minimal, but we'll see. This week looks like...

Wow what a weather change.
Yesterday got a bunch of outside work completed. the weather was mild for sure and then the wind was howling during the night and this morning we have a skiff of snow with high winds.
The wife decided she would run into Lincoln, NE yesterday and go shopping, I asked about going along but she was fine with me not going.
Her last stop of the day she left her Iphone in the restaurant. When she gets home and does some errands her she suddenly can't find it.
Well when that happens I have to call the phone and maybe you can hear it ring. So we didn't hear it. Called it again and it went immediately to voice mail.
So whoever has it must have shut it off.
Now if this would have been me I would have never heard the end of it.
So far we have not formed a search party for it.
Most likely when the storm has passed by we will need to get her a new phone.
I just hope she has backed the thing up, so it won't be partly cloudy in the cloud.

Good morning guys, already 52 degrees this morning, peaking at 55 today! Probably break record high temps at Flint and Saginaw. Looks like we're now only suppose to get 1-3" of snow out of this storm as rain turns to ice then snow over night... so tomorrow morning looks like it'll be a mess.



Ford is suppose to unveil their new 2019 Edge ST at the Detroit Auto Show - opens to the public Jan 20-28.

Good morning guys, nasty morning but thankfully got my commute done before the ice starts. 36 degrees and raining right now but temps are falling quick so we'll see a shift to freezing rain and then snow - we're looking at 2-3" of snow today. We made it up to 58 degrees yesterday aaaand by tomorrow morning we'll be all the way down to -2... 60 degree temp fluctuation in 40 hours.

Already got 22 Montes registered for Michigan Monte Carlo Club's 7th An. Spring Meet this May!
