    I wasn't scared, they never approached my car at all. They just rode along until we crossed over into Nebraska.
    No rude or obscene gestures either. Most bikers I know are nice people. I married one going on 9 years next month.

    Wow, the pictures are unbelievable!! I remember in the winter of 78/79 we had four feet of snow. The temps in January never reached above 15, which meant inside recess at school for the month. Talk about cabin fever! We had a chain link fence around the yard. The snow was up to the top of the fence. Our dog would go to the edge of the yard where the fence line was. She never figured out all she had to do was step over the fence to get out of the yard!

    Praying for all of you

    I lived in Rothbury, Michigan, if you blinked you missed the hardware store, gas station, bar, and small corner store. at the one light in town. It is also the ice and snowbelt area. Was snowed and iced in many times with no power. They used big construction vehicles to clear the side roads. Snow banks so high you could touch the high up branches of the oak trees. We kept lots of firewood to used in our wood stoves. It is very beautiful the day after. Very peaceful. You all stay warm and off the roads. I sometimes miss the snow, but not the weather that brings it. We here in Southern California complain when it is only high fifties during the day, but we do get some cold nights below freezing. You all take care

    Here in MN we started this storm off with freezing rain this afternoon. The weather forecasters said we'd have 1/10th" of ice. It's been snowing for a couple hours now and it's to be snowing until Monday.

    That's what's supposed to be coming our way next...snow followed by ice tomorrow afternoon. I feel sorry for the school kids. They'll want to enjoy all of the snow we just got.

    Sorry I don't know how to post pictures but we ended up with 30 inches of snow. My husband spent most of yesterday clearing the drive (we have a 500 foot drive) and the sidewalks. Today he cleared a path to our shed where the tractor is stored and raked snow off the roof. We are suppose to be getting some ice and then rain tomorrow so didn't want all that heavy snow on the roof. I went to check on my 88 yr old mother. She didn't get plowed out until today. Neither of us lost power which is surprising considering how the wind howled.

    We ended up not getting as much ice as predicted- just a coating. Then we got 7" of snow, which is really not that much compared to what Nemo dropped on New England area. They did close Highway 94 between Alexandria and Moorehead (western MN), Sunday, but that area always drifts if there's any wind. The sun just came out for the first time in many days.
