    The cats and I will be on the next flight out (assuming any are getting out, since a lot aren't)!

    You can come to Ann Arbor, where the temp is currently 0 to -4 F (wind chill down to around 41 below).

    Yay! New sudden snow!

    So the forecasters were only off by 12 hours - they said we were supposed to get maybe some snow flurries or a dusting overnight, but about 20 minutes ago, all of sudden the snow came pouring down, huge flakes looking lovely agains the green and brown grass and mud where everything had melted!

    Already a coating is down, and it's still coming - makes everything look much prettier!

    It's still snowing!

    A rush of snow falls
    Making lace of bare branches
    And lightening hearts

    It's been snowing here for the last 2 days and still is. We have so much snow I think it won't melt till June. It's above the knee plus some and we're getting snow most of next week. It's been so mild lately, we even had -1C yesterday The deep freeze is returning tomorrow with a low of -27C, then it will get colder as the week wears on. Fun winter--NOT.

    Just send me your address and I'll have huge refrigerated transports hauling all our snow to your door
    I just don't understand anyone wanting this stuff. A few inches isn't bad but we're getting buried alive. We've had to snowblow a path for the dogs to go potty 3X today.
    Right now we never know if we're hearing snowblowers of ski-doos. And the driving is horrid, they haven't cleared any roads yet, waiting for the snow to stop but it sure makes it slick if you happen to let your foot get too heavy on the gas pedal. Even our highways were bad, not much use clearing them since they were filling up right away.

    Okay-- snow on the way to your doorstep

    I heard on the news today that an average winter in Chicago is 38 inches of snow. We have had 40 inches so far and it's only mid-January! I'm just tired of the cycles - snow, cold, few days of milder weather. Snow, cold. Repeat.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    This morning's weather report says temperatures will take a nosedive tomorrow with this next polar vortex coming and along with that we'll be getting some snow. They're not saying how much though. The snow shovel and salt are ready to go.

    I am trying not to get my hopes up, which I am sure is the opposite of most folks!

    Today NJ is getting hammered pretty bad. We may get up to a foot of snow, hopefully they are wrong. There was a couple of inches on the ground by around 9:30 this morning and of course it's still coming down two hours later. This could go all day long.

    I called my library when it opened at 9:30 to make sure they would be open and they were so I ran out cuz I was out of books and I can't be without a book to read I now am a happy camper with 3 books and will read happily thru this snowstorm.

    It started snowing around mid-morning here in Trenton and it's still coming down fast & furious. Amigo is curled up on my lap purring contentedly, there's a fresh pot of coffee, a quiet do nothing kind of day. The latest weather reports are now saying we could get 14" before the snow ends tomorrow morning but the amount of snow expected has been increasing throughout the day. I am loving this and can't wait to get outside!

    The snow has not yet started, but the juncos have been busy eating up any seed left before the storm comes!

    The snow has commenced
    Traffic, therefore is stopped, red
    Taillights everywhere

    I am thankful and
    Take the long way around the
    Snow hushed reservoir

    Inside the warm car
    I watch as sky and ice blend
    Into pale silence
    I've Been Frosted
