    First Half (Nov/Dec) F, Second Half (Jan/Feb) B, what a down and up winter this was. Crazy thing is , Gaylord is the only reporting area that APX publishes to still be below normal snowfall for the year. Just goes to show what a crappy LES flow for this year for my area, although I have done better then APX site as I am 10 miles West which always performs better.

    March 9-11 Winter Storm

    I'm rooting for rain which looks good at this point, ready for spring, and 3 feet of snow is going to take a while to melt.

    Yea Northern Lake Michigan not to far behind.
  5. Yea Gaylord is usually warmer than most neighboring areas closer to Lake Michigan with the exception of Traverse City. We hit 80's on a decent basis depending on the year. 90s are a lot harder to come by as well as humidity which is what really bothers me the most which I am thankful for.
  6. Same here for the most part in my area, we rarely lock our house, cars (garage). I do have cameras on my property and a alarm just because I am abundantly cautious. Cameras are nice to for weather and also to check on our dog watchers when we are gone. Never had any problems in the 5 years I have been here but I still realize the world we live in. My area is also a nice spot for snow lovers who also love nice falls, springs (Sometimes) and warm but not hot summers (Upper 70s to low 80s that still average 150-200" a year of snow. I live about 14 miles from main Gaylord and have plenty of property and privacy with lower costs for home ownership and taxes. Fairly close to larger cities (TC/GR) Although Gaylord does seem to be growing at a quite quick pace I suppose that is both good and bad.

    Here's a comment below the story: You are very lucky those other riders reported you or you would have died. How far off trail were your sleds or were you stuck in drifts on the trail?

    Wow, glad you made it out, did you plan on riding your sled during the blizzard? I went out for about 5 mins and turned around and went home on Sunday, it was nasty, heck even got my sled stuck at the end of my street.

    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Picked up between 10-12" since yesterday, man what could have been if this thing didn't go over my head. Still pretty decent hit, but the winds were the story. Snow depth back over 30" on the season and that's after the torch and .3 of rain before the front pushed through. Sad thing is I am almost 20" down for snow on the season still at my location. APX is still over 14" under for the year. Been an odd LES year that's for sure as most other locations are over average for the year. Cant complain to bad as we did get a awesome Blizzard and their of certainly way more locations far worse this winter for snow and action. Working from home for a bit longer then need to start the cleanup, should be fun blowing 4-5' drifts!

    Wow, been a crazy 5-6 hours so far, pounding snow and 55mph winds, my county has declared a state of emergency (Otsego) all county roads closed. I75 has been closed in both directions. Some of the worst winter weather I have seen since living up here. Picked up about 7" so far, drifts 5-6'. Still no power.

    Winds picked up here, only picked up a inch or so, already lost power.

    APX issued first blizzard warning for my area in 10 years, kind of surprised it has been that long. Looking at 6-8" plus 55mph winds should be pretty intense tomorrow. Hopefully the freezing rain tonight wont amount to much, power outages could become a serious issue.

    Lol at APX, not over anything relevant but did enjoy their humor this morning.

    Pretty Rare for APX to be hyping up the weekend storm so soon, especially being 5 days out with such detial, going to be an interesting next couple weeks with the pattern and storm tracks.
