we only got about 1-2 inches last night, no snow on my car this morning due to the wind. they think we'll get 3-5 by this evening. still not bad compared to where my parents live, Syracuse, NY. I definitely can remember those winters, shoveling about 4 or 5 times an hour and not being able to keep up. good times, good times. snow days

I still haven't experienced a truly bad midwest winter since I've been here, but I have been exposed to one silly thing that I wasn't aware of before---people putting out chairs...lawn chairs, folding chairs, even dining room ones next to the curb to "reserve" their parking spaces for later on if they need to move their car. that was by far the funniest thing I've seen. I've been told by others that this happens in other cities as well.

But in Chicago we do it better than anyone else. The official name is "dibs". Even Mayor Daley bows to the inevitable and supports the dibs system.

no school today i don't know how much it snowed but it was enough to cancel school which IPS almost never does. and it's supposed to be snowing or freeze-raining (freezing-raining? how do you say that as a verb?) throughout the day

not nearly as bad as New York of course

Under winter storm watch till noon tomorrow. Expected to get up to 16 inches by the time it is over. Going to start getting cold again too. We did have a warm up into the 20's though.

I feel for the people in N.Y. who are getting hammered with all the snow. Hopefully it will lighten up on them soon.

It's bad here also. I was told not to come into work today and tomorrow. We are to get a foot of snow and be snowing into tomorrow. We are to get some freezing rain, and if we get too much we could lose power.

We got snow here in Delaware this morning now it's turned to freezing rain. Heard that we could possibly develop an inch of ice overnight. I hate winter!

Snow to freezing rain to snow to freezing rain here on the northside of Indy. My bank closed and the general rule is, if the federal reserve is open, the bank is open, unless an emergency is declared or something. No emergency, but I got home at 3:30 rather than the usual 5:45! I am quickly learning that my car is a tank; it was plowed into my parking spot at work and I only had to rock it once to get it out.
