    Anyone else in the middle of a blizzard this afternoon? It's been snowing since yesterday evening, winds howling and not fit for man nor beast out there.

    My poor old dog has heart problems and we have to keep clearing off the back deck so she can go out and right in before the wind takes her breath away. That is, when we can get her to go out.

    Our snow had ended, but the wind and gray skies continue. Hard to believe we did not have a white Christmas, only to get dumped on 2 days later. I didn't go in to work today. My new job takes me out of town and it was just too windy and snowy this morning to chance it. I like winter, but not snow.

    Still snowing in the lakes region too. Winds blow so hard it is like a total white out! Pretty though. Is China Maine up by Augusta?

    Our dog is only 3 and just loves playing in the snow.

    Stopped snowing in Iowa now and we have a bit of sunshine, but not supposed to stay. No snow in forecast in forseeable future, but maybe rain (what?). Is this a crazy year or what.

    All cleared out here for now. Blowing and drifting still. I changed my Dad's Dr. appt in Laconia for a different day. He is over an hour away, on a good day.

    Our snow stopped by the time we woke up this morning. But when the wind gusts, it looks as though it's snowing sideways with the snow drifting. We're all shoveled out, so now I hope we don't wake up with big snow drifts against our house and cars again.

    My location says Maine but right now I am in the panhandle of Florida. I can see that it is still storming in Maine because my neighbor has a weather web cam and I can see the snow coming down.

    Our snowfall stopped before I got up this AM leaving mile high drifts. The wind is still unbelievable. Shovelled the walks, porch, etc and cleaned off the cars, but won't even try to dig them out until after the plow comes through. We live on a side street, so have no idea when that might be. We're way down on the list.

    We got it!! No snow today; but lots to shovel and plow, and the temps are still very cold. Winter has officially arrived here on the East Coast!

    We are in Central CA. No snow, obviously, but we have had a whole years' worth of rain since December 1. And we are supposed to get some more later this week. We don't normally get much rain in December, so this has been an amazing month of weird weather for us.
