Red face Anyone else having weather problems?

Woke up and tried to go to work but there is so much ice on the driveway that I have to stay home for a couple of hours. So another cup of coffee and read Quilter's Board. It's a great day!! We are suppose to get up to 6 inches of snow tonight. Is any one else having problems?

It's setting record warmth temperatures here in the Chicago area today. Heavy rain forecast for later today with temps dropping drastically tomorrow.

this is one of the many reasons why I love where I live. Like last yr we didn't even get snow but I can drive an hour or so in most any direction if I want to see it; that's not going to happen. Last Friday we got a few inches and most was gone by Sunday. Today it is supposed to be around 60 degrees and up to 70 tomorrow. When we get it, which is rare and even rarer that we get more than 2 to 3 in it's gone in a matter of a day or two or three and then we have a few days of warmer weather. By Thursday it'll be back down to 40. Cold weather only stays around here long enough to make my back hurt but not long enough for you to be really sick of it most of the time. We normally have at least one really nice weekend a month even in the winter.

That looks nasty to deal with, so it seems like a good plan to stay home for a while. I'll take our winters, but you can have our summers..... LOL

Yesterday and today is in the 70s here. We are going to pay for it with storms. I hate storms and don't want to lose my power.
