Are you sick of the snow? Or do you love the winter weather?

Here’s a look at what some people said on Facebook. Macomb Township residents should get used to seeing the snow, though.

The snow will continue through Tuesday, when up to 2 additional inches are possible, according to the National Weather Service. Here's the forecast, day-by-day, for the Macomb County area:

The wintry weather is part of a widespread blanket of white set to fall in the Midwest this weekend.
Southeast Michigan—like much of the Midwest—can expect a fresh blanketing of snow Friday. According to the National Weather Service, St. Clair Shores and surrounding areas can expect snowfall to start in the morning and continue into the afternoon, with a total accumulation of 1-3 inches expected. The precipitation could continue Sunday, with a 60 percent chance of snow and sleet in the area that evening. Another 1-2 inches of precipitation are expected. The wintry weather system is expected to sweep through the Midwest and head east over the weekend, adding to the tremendous Lake Effect snow seen in New York, Ohio and northern and western Michigan earlier this week. The NWS reports, however, that though the snow will be widespread, it …

Expect snow showers and high wind throughout the day Friday, the official first day of winter.
Winter weather has arrived to Michigan right on time. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of southeastern, western and mid Michigan Friday.

Snow showers will continue through the morning, but should stop by early evening. We can expect to see snow accumulation of around an inch in most areas, including Macomb Township. Some areas of Michigan, however, could see as much as three inches of snow. According to the NWS, here…

It's possible that there will be snowflakes mixed with the rain over southeast Michigan Tuesday and Wednesday.
Fall may be over sooner than we thought. It's possible we'll see snow early next week. Although it remains too early to say, there is a small chance for snowflakes mixed with rain, said meteorologist Cory Behnke, of the National Weather Service (NWS) Detroit/Pontiac Weather Forecast Office in White Lake. "As far as southeast Michigan is concerned, we're going to have a secondary cold front track through the Great Lakes region probably on Tuesday night," he said. He said it's possible there will be snowflakes Tuesday night and into Wednesday. "We don't have it in the forecast," Behnke said. "But I can't completely rule out the fact that we won't see any snowflakes, either." The average first date of measurable snow fall one-tenth of an inch…

Halfway through the season, we've had little snowfall and averaged 30 degrees.
Show of hands: Who went out without gloves this week or rode with a car window open? You're not alone. January just went out like a lamb, a two-months-early calendar twist that's unusual here. So is an average Metro Detroit winter temperature of 30.7 degrees, six weeks into the season, and snowfall barely above nine inches – compared to nearly 18 inches in January 2011. "It is surprising," National Weather Service meteorologist said this week from the monitoring station at White Lake. It recorded a Tuesday reading of 56 degrees and forecasts high temperatures of 40-44 degrees through Monday. In Rochester, unseasonal weather won’t stop a Snow Daze benefit for the Animal Care Network this Saturday afternoon. "We plan to host our annual Snow …
