Yes. I've lived all my life in Michgian. The snow blower is still in the garage, not the barn. My snowplow contractor is just 3 houses away. He takes care of the road maintenance/owners association. I just sent the receipt for Feb. to the 4 other owners with a reminder that, "it ani't over, yet". We have had only one day needing to be plowed so far this month. Saint Patrick's Day has caught me several times, once trying to go to Marquette and once trying to drive to Disney World. Who said, "beware the ides of March"?
However, as an old (former) farmer, you make hay when the sun shines. And on clay, closely watch soil moisture content to be able to do the job. Too wet, ruts. Too dry, waste of time to roll. AND, I needed to get out.
