    I, too, am from eastern Iowa and the snow was beautiful when I got up. Truly a Hallmark moment. Merry Christmas to you and your family

    E. central Illinois and it hasn't started here yet. I've got my fingers crossed though. Even though we've got quite a bit of snow already I'm hoping for enough to whiten up the dirty plowed stuff and put a fresh, new glisten on everything. To actually have fresh snow for Christmas is something that hasn't happened for quite awhile here. After Christmas I could care less if it snows but I sure do enjoy it beforehand and during. I just hope it starts before dark so that we can see it coming down.

    Here in western NC, ours should start tonight & go through Sunday sometime. They are saying 2-5 inches, but not sure till it gets here. I hope it's just enough to be pretty & not mess up the roads for travelers! It will be our first white xmas in a long time also! Enjoy yours while it lasts & stay safe!...

    Ours is suppose to start later today. I just pray it doesn't makes the roads bad. So many people driving to famiy gatherings, don't want anyone hurt! Had good news this morning from yougest son. He gets to have his children from noon today, overnight until mid-morning Christmas day. This was to be the first year that he wouldn't have been with them on Christmas morning and it was breaking his heart and mine. The step dad and their mom are both employed by the helicopter emergency service, she is a nurse , he the pilot, and since he was scheduled to work, she chose to work also. Yippeee!!!! ( Plus, her husband wasn't going to have his kids this year , that is why he was going to work) For whatever the reason,God was good to our family once again. Now it will really be a good Christmas for all of us, and I pray you all have your family with you also. Merry Christmas, Carol

    I just came in from scooping that picture perfect snow and now my back hurts!! It is a light weight snow and is very pretty and the temp is good with no wind so was not really too bad. I would have let the driveway un-scooped but I am having company later this evening. Merry Christmas :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    It is 10:00 Pm, and the snow is falling quite fast here in Lexington. It is a fine snow, but within 30 minutes the streets were covered. We had a fun evening, everyone gone home now. They will all be back tomorrow unless the roads are too bad. One son will come for sure, he lives close-by. I hope you all have as wonderful Christmas as I did. May the new year be filled with good health and happiness for all of you. Carol

    It was a beautiful snow fall here in eastern Iowa but I was worried about my oldest son. He is a long haul truckdriver and he drove in snow from Indiana all the way home. He is home safe and with his family waiting for Santa. The roads are snow covered and slick in places.

    We have family in Iowa and they had to cancel plans for Christmas. She said it was like a snow globe turned upside down. Now that sounds beautiful. We had 4-1/2" here yesterday morning. But our neighbor got it all for us. God love him. We are so lucky with good neighbors. Edie

    It was the prettiest snowfall I've seen in a long time - indeed, it was like a snow globe turned upside down! We cancelled plans too and ended up with 9.5 inches at our house :thumbup:
