    I am finding it very odd right now. I got up this morning and all of the snow is almost gone. What is going on here? The last day of December and no snow???

    Ours in Illinois is almost gone too. It's okay by me, we had snow for Christmas so I'm done with it, it can stay away now. Last night at 10:30 it was 49 degrees here. It's supposed to be really warm today then drop to high 20's or very low 30's tomorrow.

    I live in Illinois (near St. Louis, MO) we had beautiful snow on Christmas. Woke up yesterday and it was all gone also. Today we are to have a high in the 60's possible thunderstorms and only highs in the 30's tomorrow. Go figure??? Nothing like the weather in the midwest...always changing.

    I can tell you where it is: right in my back yard in southern Massachusetts. There is still a foot left here but it's supposed to go up to about 50 today so I may have to say bye-bye to it after today.

    Just wait, another storm is blasting across SD with extreme cold, winds. It is absolutely yucky out. We are -2 with windchill of -17 and snow is blowing around.

    We got about 6 inches and some of it is still here. It is my hope that this was the "BIG ONE" for the winter. With Gus still needing to be walked on leash about 20 times a day I am fine with no snow. I usually love winter and snow but this year no....

    The snow is gone in central Ohio, too and that's just fine with me. A white Christmas was lovely, but then I'm ready for spring. The green/brown grass looks wonderful to me.

    Looks about the same here and let me tell you...it is fine with me! I hate snow and winter and after last winter in PA, I had enough snow to last me a lifetime. I wouldnt care if it NEVER snowed again. White Christmas just means bad roads, problems traveling and worrying about the safety of loved ones. Bring on green grass, trees and flowers lol

    Try Northwestern Lower MI. I still have at least 8 to 12 inches on the ground, but with a warm rain coming down, it will go fast. We were up to several feet - that 20 inch snowfall left plenty behind. I have complete confidence that it will return, though we didn't get much last year in January and February.

    We still have piles of snow- now dirty, no garbage pick up. Many problems with plowing, airports backlogged, yuck! It is too bad the beauty of the storm does not last.

    I hope that snowy mess blows away from Michigan...I'm kinda liking the warm weather right now.

    I went and ran errands this morning in a t-shirt...got to leave the coat and sweatshirt behind!
