    We were suppose to get 1in of snow today but it has turned into 6in so far and it's still snowing.
    The kids had school but were dismissed at 10am. My 15yr. old son's bus wound up in a ditch and it took them 2 hours to get home then the bus got stuck in front of our apartment building but managed to get going. His bus driver told them that even if there is school tomorrow that they all could just stay home because she wasn't coming to get them. LOL!! Ahter all the kids got off the bus it started leaning to the side even more.
    My DD gets picked up by her boyF's mom and it took them almost an hour to get here and it usually takes 10 minutes then another hour for them to get to their home a 15 minute drive.

    All in all this is the snow I have been waiting for all winter. LOL!!! Now that everyone is home except for DH I can relax until he has to drive home from work at 7:30pm.

    you can't see off in the distance due to the snow. There is a main highway out there somewhere that we can usually see.

    Ugh, I am so sick of snow I hope it stays down there where you are. I think that storm is supposed to be moving up the coast to us! We have so much snow our dog house is almost completely buried! I would say there is at least 30" in our yard right now. The drifts from having our driveway plowed are well over 5ft! I am so sick of weekly snowstorms and driving in this crap! I guess I should quit my b**ching. I definitely would prefer snow over ice.

    Minnesota roads and weather is no better here! Had to get a MO for Sue here on the quilting board...wow, I could see now why our schools were 2 hours late and on plowed roads only picking up kids. KY with that much snow is not good..stay safe & warm. It has been a very strange winter for all!

    I don't want the snow either!!! We have another snowfall coming this evening.. Yuck! No school all last week and The kids are still out of school today and tomorrow doesn't look good either.

    Well least we have a working furnace, a fireplace, roof over our head, and food in the pantry.. Now if I can only get off this compute long enough to actually get some quilting done we'd be good !! :thumbup:

    It usually only takes me about 20 minutes to get home...it took me almost an hour. (I'm about 20 miles north of cjomomma).

    We have a 4x4 dually and I was going about 35 - 45 most of the way on the parkway. Many many trucks/cars in the ditches and medians. I wasn't in a hurry and no one else really seemed to be either.

    Our driveway has over 6" right now and still snowing. I have a circle drive (on corner lot) and took the dually through the whole drive to break the 12 - 18" drifts before they got hard. On the way back into the driveway, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to turn and thought I was going down the riprap hill... would not have been good!

    Got back into the house and decided my chubby rear would just clean off the porch and watch the birdies (and QB updates)

    Moonwork I'm glad you made it home safely. They are still trying to get kids home from school. School let out at 9:45 and it's 2:30 now.

    Seems like the weather man is having a hard time predicting the weather this winter in KY, they call for a 1" we get 6", they call for 4" we get a dusting....lol.

    You just got to wake up and see what you get and go from there.

    It certainly is an unusual weather cycle we are in - first glance at your pictures you would think they were pictures taken here in Iowa! Will all this unusual snow make for flooding this spring or do you normally get an equivalent amount of moisture in rain?

    We normally don't get this much snow but we have had some kind of snow once to twice a week since Christmas and it been a dusting to 2 inches. Our summers are generally very rainy but this last summer was hot and dry.
