How much snow did you get in Milwaukee? I was wroking in Beaver Dam today and all over the radio people were going nuts, announcing closings everywhere, and by eleven o'clock the sun was out. I realize the storm was worse in SE WI, but what a joke up here.

It was between 10-6 inches. Not that much but it didn't take that much time to come down. About 1-2" an hour and the winds made it impossible to see. Semi were jack knifing all over the place, they shut down two freeways for a while. And one other was basicly a parking lot, a quote might be a good idea to show how bad it was "I have it in park for about ten minutes move up 50 feet and put it back it park." Thank god I didn't have to good to school today.

I have a couple 4 ft drifts around my house and my front steps. Lowest snow was about 8", but a lot of the snow was 15-24" deep.

I've been out with the snow thrower for 4 hours...ran out of gas once.

Getting sore now...but it was a good work out.

It must have been freakin' 75 degrees here today. Absolutely impossible to get in the Christmas spirit so far. If electricity was free I'd probably have the AC on right now.

It was well into the 60s today, 62 when I left the house for work this morning. Weird was that an hour away in Albany, it was at least twenty degrees colder. The local meterologist tried to explain it as cold air tending to sink, and we're at a higher elevation - which does nothing to explain why it's usually within two or three degrees between here and Albany

Here in Waukesha it looks like we got about 12 inches-- at least in my yard. I thought my snowblower was going to go on strike when it saw all that snow. I suppose the official total was a bit less. What a contrast from the other day when it was 60 degrees and people were going around in shorts and t-shirts.

I got some good snow here in chicago. My only problem with snow it that it makes everyone either bitch about how cold it is or drive like a f'ing moron. Why if you live in chicago do you act surprised when it is 15 deg and snowing, i know i am not surprised by blizzard conditions and bitter cold. And the drivers, why 3 days after a major storm are people still driving at 50 percent of the speed limit when the roads are all cleared and bone dry coated with salt?

AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
