    We lucked out I guess.

    Prediction: about 6" of snow, weather advisory to last until about 7:30 tonight.
    We got: about 1" of snow, icy road, and supposed to have sun by noon.

    The kids still got to have a "snow day" off.

    High winds, blowing snow, 18 degrees, means I need to be very careful when I go out :eusa_pray: Unfortunately I have to shovel and drive in this today

    I think the wind coming off the lake makes this unbearable brrrr

    A wet heavy snow is much better than this arctic blast of cold, 8 inches expected today another 5 to 8 tomorrow

    I will get pics when I go out

    Sunny, upper 70s, nice Caribbean breeze, laying in a hammock under a couple of palm trees. listening to the ocean gently break upon the sand.

    Aaaaaahhh, if only............

    Here it's breezy, mid to upper 30s, had a dusting of snow last night and waiting for the real arctic air to move in hence the fantasy........

    Took this picture about 10 minutes ago while I was out on the back porch smoking a cigarette. I am looking north past the garage up the farm lane. Looks much better today than it did yesterday during the blizzard. You could not see half way up the lane to where the corn field starts yesterday because of the blowing snow. Not real sure just how much snow we got cause the wind has blown most of it away which suits me just fine. It is 4 degrees outside.
