Seasonal rates for Snowplow

Hi
So we are trying to determine how much snow we should expect in Troy, MI and if it warrants us purchasing a seaonal contract vs. paying by the plow. If we expect a lot of snow, seasonal is cheaper. Thoughts? Best, Robin

pretty close on forecast!

your prediction was only off by a few days for the warm weather, actually was quite warm oct 7-10th in cleveland.

Troy, MI

According to this, we should have a milder winter, so a seasonal plow might work better. We may receive more precipitation, but if it's mixed w/ rain and or flurries, there shouldn't be too much piling up. Make sure to have some salt on hand for early mornings though :)

Outdoor ceremony Durand, il

Hi, can you help us please?? We’ve been trying to pin down best date for outdoor ceremony in Durand il between May & June. Please. Would be so appreciated. Thank you :)

Wedding near the Finger Lakes

I'm having an outdoor wedding on August 30th, 2019 in Geneva, NY (right next to Seneca Lake). Do you have any predictions as to what the temperature and precipitation-likelihood might be?

Christmas in the Lower Lakes

My husband won't book a flight for Christmas to Jackson MI (via Detroit) until he knows what you (F.A.)say about the weather then. Can you help a gal out?

Won't book flight to Detroit

Find a new husband.

Winter 2018/19

I live in lower michigan...I heard a mild winter for us...warmer ..less snow

Christmas in Jackson

Michiganders say if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes and it will change. My grandmother said to always pack a winter coat when visiting Michigan because it could snow. They have done a lot of road work around Jackson so even if it does snow, it shouldn't be like an off-road experience. Start looking for flights now and keep in mind that Grand Rapids and Lansing are not that far away and the flights might be a lot cheaper.
