    The Chicago area got 6-8" yesterday & last night. Rush hour was a mess--glad I was off work yesterday and today. After I get the walks and driveway shoveled, I want to work on my 2nd UFO of the year. I'm on here now 'cause I'm procrastinating about the shovelling. Besides, I have to get enough coffee into me so I can function.

    Hi from Massachusetts! I'm enjoying the snowy day too. We have had no snow since Halloween! Plan on quilting a UFO I started five years ago with the new walking I bought with my Christmas cash :-) So happy this snow is happening on a Saturday. Cheers!

    We just finished with it here in Chicago...not a nice storm...we have 8"...the plow finally went down our street just a bit ago.
    Son was to go to the Blackhawks game last night...took him 3 hours to get there...normally 40 minutes. The Hawks delayed the game for a couple of hours to accomadate the fans during the storm.
    Hubby's place of business sent all the people home early...they didn't want their trucks out on the road...it was too slippery.
    Enjoy the quilting and the pork roast.

    I'm on my own with my kidlet this weekend. DH is out on Shelter Island on a men's retreat. So, we'll be baking some cookies and getting ready for a trip next week and just hanging out. If the snow stops before dark MAYBE I'll shovel...but somehow I don't think so!

    We have only had about 2-1/2" so far this winter. Temps are gonig up and down, hard to get use to the cold for a few days then back up to the 50s. As long as we don't get ice.

    We have a total of about 15", nothing to worry about. I'm here on the Eastern end of Lake Ontario in what they like to call Lake Effect area. LOL The winds were the worst, but fortunately there wasn't much damage around this area. It does look funny to see it snowing sideways tho. Staying in with my sewing, DH and my kitty and dog makes it great; add the pot of bean soup DH has on the stove while I sew and you have perfection!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I'm enjoying it from Tucson. October's storm in CT was enough for me!
