    Default Snow Day!!!

    Well, for the first time in 38 years, I am taking a snow day off work.
    Of course I'll be on the phone and playing with my computer, but we ain't rollin' for a while.

    16+" of snow on top of the 12+" we already had.
    40+mph sustained winds.

    I guess I am getting old, but even the plows are not out yet.
    My company is closed.

    Elvis is diggin' it though!!!!!!

    Glad to hear you're safe so far and hope PP others are as well.

    On this side of the Rockies, things are just cold (+2 F) but dry, maybe some snow by the weekend but nothing like I'm hearing about back there..
    Magnum tore off his rt dew claw during bumper work on the ice so he's down for a few.

    Y'all take care back there.

    WOW - memories of our house a block away from Lake Erie when I was little! That is a lot of snow....

    Here in the Tx Hill Country, it's clear, cold (15 with a wind chill of 8), but the world is moving....no snow, no ice.

    Enjoy your day. I expect to return from work and see that you have been hard at work here!

    It's not just the snow, it's the "sustained" 40mph winds.

    The big intersection in DT Milwaukee is closed so I can't even get thru right now.

    Plus, since everything else is closed, no clients will be in.

    So yes, I'll be playin' here today (as usual really).

    I have 2 computers up, internet & intranet.

    Most of my business is web driven anyways.

    Be careful out there!!!

    We got about 10" here. We had 40 mph winds last night, and the high today is only going to be 9 degrees. Schools are closed, but a lot of businesses are open. I work from home, so no day off for me. My snow blower wouldn't fire up, so I'll be shoveling later. The joys of winter!!!

    72 and rainy/windy. Its supposed to get down around 30 something tonight though. I really don't care if it goes ahead and warms up now. Duck season is over, so I don't need it to be cold anymore.

    Good luck with that snow, RK. I don't think I have seen that much in my whole life.

    It got so cold last night I had to turn the heat on in the house. Got down to 30 degrees and we should be in this weather pattern through the weekend. I even spotted some ice on the goldfish pond next to my patio. All of which should make for some ideal goose shooting this weekend!
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Dodged a major bullet in NW Pa. Lots of snow, but all the ice (1/4" clear shell on everything) all melted by this morning.

    I guess RK is sending us round 2 with his 40+mph winds and more snow...should be here soon!
