    I'm in Texas and we're under a storm, tornado warning. But no rain yet. I have my fraidy hole ready under a 250lb. desk. If it goes, I'll go with it. LOL

    I am near Albany, NY and we only got 9 inches of snow. Everything was closed all day yesterday in preparation of the storm, however by nightfall we only had 1 inch. The rest during the night.

    My son, in CT, got 20 inches of snow and the roads still aren't driveable.

    A friend of mine lives near Concord, NH and they had 28 inches of snow with an additional 3-5 inches to come.

    I guess we made out easy. No power outages and just enough snow to burn off the extra calories sitting around eating during the storm.

    35 mi. outside of Boston we got about 24-28in. Noisy night with the wind and snow. Everyone okay. Today it looks like a "winter wonderland"

    We think we have about 15 inches here in NH but since we didn't have to go anywhere, we haven't been outside yet. The sun is out now and it's stopped snowing. We never lost the power. It was an old fashioned snowstorm. Thanks for asking!

    All of you stay warm out east. We are find in Iowa, no snow but SD is suppose to get a storm tonight so we might get something early week. We really need the moisture so we can make that corn grow this year and sendit east.

    We had a beautiful snow... About 15".. The car is still where I left it before, but will dig it out in the a.m... Socrates had a couple of problems with finding places to eliminate without falling deep in the snow.. Also the ice melt stuff has him dancing.. Of course when we get in, an additional problem of getting the snow that stuck to his hair, and caused ice balls.. What a wonderful day...

    Here is Near philadelphia PA. WE got about 6" and didn't loose the electric. Woopie! Over the years I have learned to be prepared and ready for about two weeks of trouble, which has happened in the past.
