Well, We got the ice!! I can
hear it hitting my bedroom window!!
All schools closed! My daughter will be
thrilled! :)

I hope you guys don't lose power. One of the prettiest things I ever saw was how the forest looked after an ice storm as a child. To kids it's neat looking and no school.

Me too!! It is pretty!

Agreed! I was walking to work this morning (I walked on the side of the street instead of through the snow), and I saw someone who hadbeen walking down the sidewalk and had to cross the street. Unfortunately there was a snow drift in the way that was taller than me (something I have never seen before in Missouri) and insteaad of backtracking and going around it, the guy digs a hole through it! I was laughing so hard I almost fell over! :D

We got a lot of snow in a short period of time this morning right before and during rush hour. It took me over 2 hours to get to work.
Here is the scene.

I hope we all get more snow! I can't think of any place in the midwest who is not needing more moisture, be it snow or rain. The land needs it folks badly.

I wonder if Baoh is ok in all of this? I am pretty sure he lives in the Midwest.

i agree we need this moisture. i'm in missouri and we don't need another year of drought right now. hard on crops and the livestock. i work with a great group of farmers and it's been really rough the past couple of years. so, we'll take the snow for sure even though i'm personally ready for spring. :)

We already got another 4 inches, and the worst is yet to hit us supposedly! This is nuts! I left my house this morning and couldn't even see across the street!

Try to stay as dry and warm as possible. We are thinking of you!

It was such a rough drive. It first started raining and then turned to snow. Under the snow was a sheet of ice and they didn't salt the roads apparently.. I don't think anyone said a winter storm was coming??? over and over again. :rolleyes: I was sitting still at one point on a very slight incline and my truck started sliding sideways.
As I got closer to home it was like a blizzard
