Snowed in...

I hadn't really been paying attention to the weather dudes and kinda got caught by surprise when I woke up this new years morning to 13 inches of snow. Made a tough decision to not even try and drive to the annual new years day ride.  I was pretty sure the Charger would not make it out of the driveway as I got the car stuck in Simonster's driveway 2 weeks ago in 8 inches of snow. It would end up another day of shoveling snow and a hike in the woods...

New Year's storm brings 16-inch snow
Wednesday, January 02, 2008

Authorities reported no deaths or serious injuries from the six-hour burst of snow in Michigan that started early Tuesday, but they said there were many spinouts and minor accidents.

The storm left 10 to 16 inches of snow across parts of Oakland, Lapeer and St. Clair counties north of Detroit, the National Weather Service said. The western St. Clair County community of Capac reported 16 inches.

"This storm most definitely packed quite a wallop," said Weather Service meteorologist David Shuler in Oakland County. "This will be a memorable storm for the amount of snow it dumped in such a short amount of time."

He said it was the region's heaviest New Year's Day snowstorm on record and was unusual for its intensity. In the heart of the storm, snow fell at a rate of at least 2 inches an hour, with periods of 4 inches an hour.

Happy New Year!!!
