John, thank you Smile Same here, plus when it's that amount I don't feel obliged to go outside with the snow-shovel and clear the front driveway Biggrin

John, they would love it, especially Beta son (the cold and being wet doesn't seem to faze him for a second).

So a dusting up your way is a good 12inches or more (judging from the photos)?

Mike, spectacular photos.

Johnny, I remember snows like that from my days living in Toledo and I don't miss them. Heck, it was freezing here today. I don't think it got any warmer than around 58-59 degrees. Around here, that is cold!

We don't see much snow here these days, which is odd because when I was a kid we had several good snows (at least 8 inches) every winter. I don't know if it's the whole global warming thing or what but we haven't had a decent snow since the 1993 blizzard and that one was pure hell, we had a 5 foot drift blocking the front door and all first floor windows on the front of the house and the power was out for 4 days.

In fact, the snow is so rare here now that when we get a dusting like Mike posted they close the schools and many call in to work for the hell of it. A "dusting" like Johnny's would cause a state of emergency. Tongue

Mike, great pictures.

Johnny, I remember Midwest snows, from my years living along Lake Michigan in Illinois. I do not miss it, it has been cold here for the past week
