Blizzard 2011

Snowing and blowing here too. Went out for gas. Went to my usual shell station, those dudes raised the price to $3.34/gallon, Meijer right across the street was $3.14. Not sure if gas is going up $ .20 everywhere tomorrow, but if not, those dudes are gonna be hard pressed to get my money after that. I know that everyone is filling up their vehicles, snowblowers and such, along with stocking up on groceries from the store, but NOT COOL

I got called home by the wife at 2 am because we didn't have power. Made it all the way home and got my truck stuck at the end of the driveway. Had to get the snowblower out and get rid iof the 4' drifts in order to get my truck off the road. Consumers says the power will be on by 8 am so I typing by lantern right now. Shelley finally agreed with me that a generator would be a good idea. I'lll try to get a picture of the shoulder high drift in my back yard.

I just arrived at work. M15 was a graveyard of burried cars off the road. Most houses/driveways on our road (east/west) have 6foot plus drifts and the east west roads are unpassable even with an F350. I would say that we got somewheres around 8-10 inches, but with the other foot of fluff we already had, the wind had a great time with it all. 7:30 am, 40 turkeys out in the blizzard eating what I put out last night for the squirells:eek:

We aren't getting hit (yet) like I thought we would. I have a 800' driveway and use my Deere farm tractor to keep cleaned out....couple of passes and I was good. Snows coming down pretty good here at the moment, so I'm sure I'm not done plowing.

Not sure if gas is going up $ .20 everywhere tomorrow,

I read that the current uprising in Egypt is why the price jumped, I think the oil companies just look for any reason they can to raise the price.

I agree. When gas was $4.50/gallon they made record proffits, anything to turn a dime I guess. Just sucks when the rest of the economy tanks and they're making record proffits.....just sayin

Looks like we got 15 to 18in last night however a quick note on gas prices first the oil companies do not set the price the price is set like any other commodity and is controlled by speculators. This price is set at several times a day and finalized at market close some gas stations will change their prices every time the new price comes out others do it at market close. All of the late night changes were based on local greed since the fuel they were selling was already in their tank and had been billed out. SO if you got gouged by your local station it was them or their district management that gouged you. I am sure many of them panicked at the thought they might run out of gas and be a day or 2 before the trucks could get them filled back up. Others are just greedy but in any event it was a local increase.

I made the 10mile ride towork this morning on my sled. Only skiddedacross 1 main road and the cops didn't even bother me. On the way home the subdivision streets were like trails and It was some of the best riding I have ever had.
