    Oh my, I live in Indiana and has been snowing here today, so far about 3 inches or so, but now starting to come down hard and big flakes. We are to get up to 8 inches of snow. It is now blowing so watch out Indiana. A few of our counties are under a snow emergency. We are staying inside tongiht!

    It's the same here in NH. We are supposed to miss this storm as well. I didn't even bother to bring my boots home from work today.

    My son just called and said the DC area was getting a forecast of 24". That is crazy! I think they have gotten more there than we have in Nebraska. And another one coming next week.
    Be careful in that slippery stuff!

    Your pics are pretty, but not if you have to be there. We are getting a little snow here. Nothing like you.

    Althought I don't miss the weather now that I'm in FL, I don't get to take snow days anymore...just mental health days. Perfect to stay in and sew! Take care.

    I'm in NE Alabama, we've had lots of rain lately, but in 40s & 50s most days & cold at night. I can handle that better than snow & sleet. I lived in that in Kentucky, Missouri & Germany & was so thankful when the Army sent us to California, then TX. I'm back in AL, my home state for about 27 years. We've had some snow, but nothing like the North & Midwest gets. You'll bundle up & stay safe. TTUL

    Got home from work at 6:00 and there was about an inch of snow on ground. It's 10:00 here now and there's about 7 inches and it's coming down hard. I've never seen such big snowflakes. It's beautiful but there's also a thin layer of ice under it. Glad it's on the week-end. Did any one see pictures of the grocery stores on tv? Shelves were stripped bare.
    Everyone stay warm and safe and off the roads if possible. Preferably with some good quilting to do.

    I got 24 inches here also. Took my trusty yard stick out and measured.
    :lol: In two hours of shoveling I only cleared a space of about a yard wide and three yards long. Trees are laying on the ground. Good news didn't lose electricity!
