Holy Blizzard!

It's coming down good here in SE Michigan.  I hear we're expecting about 7 inches.  How's it looking elsewhere?

Its crazy here outside cleveland Ohio. I haven't checked our forecast yet but the roads are awful. I wish Beau would play it he is such a pre-madonna  its hard enough to convince him to go potty in this stuff. He does like to eat it though.

I got some grocery shopping done in the morning before it hit really hard.  Then we spent most of the afternoon alternating between shoveling the driveway and sidewalks and playing in the backyard.  And then unfortunately, I had to drive downtown to work - about 20 miles.  I wish I had 4WD!  Come to think of it, a snowblower would've been been nice too!  At least I have strong young sons who like to help out!

Love the bubs and kids pics!

We are having a 'records' year in Spokane WA. Record snow fall - Then what they call the pineapple express came through and melted 60% of it in one day causing record flooding - then temps back into low 20's causing record ice from record flooding - now temps warming again causing record slush.

Oh, and didn't mention record roof collapses from record snow. All flat roof business and no one hurt, but Gosh O'mighty. :o

The upside is the roof collapses caused record part-time employment for anyone wishing to join crews to shovel snow off roofs. Starting at $20 an hour. I'm sure many businesses had record losses for last month however, because they had to close the stores until snow removal.

Okay, I'll stop.

very pretty.   i know it's cold and windy this time of year, but it can be beautiful.   it looks about the same here on the other side of the state.  we have a winter storm advisory for tomorrow night.  i think we may have gotten a few inches today, but it was that full, fluffy snow minus the wind and ice.
