    Still no snow here, just rain. And abnormally high temperatures. "They" claim we're supposed to get 3-5" tomorrow. I hope so. This lack of snow is starting to wig me out. Perhaps it is the end of days...

    Don't worry. We got your snow this time.

    I can hear clumps of snow falling from the roof onto the ground below.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    More normal winter-like temperatures sliding in for Friday and the weekend. Rain tonight changing to snow. NW Ohio (west) will get 4" to 6". NW Ohio (central, including Swanton) will get 2" to 4". High winds will create wind chills of 0F to minus-10F. Blowing and drifting snow. Normal.

    It's 18 here, wind chill 0. The wind dried most of the roads overnight, yet my kids have 2 hour delay, and traffic was so light that I made it to work in record time.

    I can't believe how LAME we've become. They closed the schools today and we only got 6 inches of snow! Well, six so far and maybe another 4 to 9 later today from lake effect. It seemed like they never closed schools when I was a kid for anything under a foot and half of snow.

    There's a reason I live in the south, and recently made a choice to not apply for a job in WY: winters.

    Right now we're at freezing, with mid-50's this afternoon. Warmer tomorrow. Some rain next week. This is my idea of winter.

    Rained last night, rained early this morning - complete with some thunder, now it has been snowing with strong winds. Supposed to get either 1-4" or 3-5" depending on who you talk to. Finally some snow! I know I'll be grumbling about it come March but happy that it finally feels a bit like winter. Can we have a Christmas do-over?

    I agree - it seems to me that snow days were called only if there was heavy snowfall or extreme weather conditions. Back then it was a lot easier for parents to deal with having the kids stay home from school, as there were fewer women working outside the home. And kids weren't so 'programmed' like they are today; we all just wanted to go outside and play in the snow, even if it meant getting soaked.

    The problem with a Christmas do-over is that it means even more days until spring.

    Just on dusting of snow here on the east side of Metro Detroit. No accumulation, but it's now cold and windy.

    Like Maister alluded to, the schools my girls used to go to in the Grand Rapids area - closed. He's right, so lame.

    Just got back from the basement of our four-story office building after tornado warnings were issued. We had unseasonably mild weather (65F) ahead of a strong front that developed a line of storms. It got pretty nasty-looking outside my west-facing windows and a weather blog reported a tornado sighting about 4 miles n/w, so we high-tailed it downstairs. An earlier line this morning apparently did some damage near historic Madison, In, about 50 miles n/e of here, but no damage reports locally, thankfully.

    35 years ago,snow in Orlando and Miami

    It's snowed once in my lifetime in my hometown. I missed it; I was in college in western Massachusetts.

    At around midnight in the Fox Valley, it is 1 degree with a wind chill of minus 9. We're under a Winter Storm Warning for Friday, as about 4 to 8 inches of snow is expected across much of the Chicago area.

    4 at my house this morning. I didn't even look at wind chill. I love it when my car thinks about whether it wants to start or not in this weather.... I need a garage.

    It's about 10 here right now. At least there is no wind to speak of.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    It was a balmy 6º this morning at 5:00 a.m. when I left the house for my Friday morning constitutional. I was bundled up pretty well and it didn't really bother me, but the girl at the coffee shop told me I had a pretty good growth of icicles going on my eyebrows when I walked in.

    Yes, this is the time of year having a beard is both a blessing and a curse. It certainly keeps the face a bit warmer but mustache icicles are gross.
