Another Michigander pretending to be a weatherman - I was stranded more or less in Macomb County Sunday & Monday (stayed at a friend's house).
Sunday just kept snowing - There was a good solid inch or so when I went to bed on Saturday night, and then it really picked up between 2:00pm and
10:00pm. I was so glad that I didn't have to drive anywhere, as I fought the crowds buying last minute supplies on Saturday the 4th.
