    We have 3 inches on the ground, and still snowing. It's supposed to snow everyday through Sunday. Heaviest snowfall tomorrow, with wind gusts up to 40 MPH. We could have 12 inches by Friday.

    I love winter! :happy:

    Though it's less than normal, we've had snow on the ground since October. Another half foot has fallen over the last few days. Up hear what falls stays....all winter.

    We don't get much snow here in northern MS. It would scare away the mosquitoes!

    we don't have much right now-which is very unsual of us here in North Dakota. Just something interesting, this morning on the news they were talking about the snow fall we received on Thanksgiving day 1993. In less than a 24 hour period, we got over 28 inches of the white fluffy stuff!! I was going to college at the time, living in a basement apartment and on Thanksgiving morning I woke up to find the snow so high that I could not see out of the living room windows!! Needless to say I didn't make it home to see mom and dad. The neighbor next door and I were the only ones in the building. (We hadn't left to go home because we both had to work the night before.) Anyway - this girl and I shared leftover pizza and yogurt that day. (No electricity) Hoping that doesn't happen this year!!! Have a great THanksgiving everyone!!

    It's snowing here as I type this. There's a dusting on the grass and on the trees. The pine trees and the hills look so beautiful.

    About an inch on the ground, possibility of 1 foot. But I would expect prolly only 4 - 6. The weathermen are always "optimistic" this time of year.

    Wouldn't you know it. I just blew out my rear drive shaft on my plow truck. Oh well... I will get it fixed later tonight or early tomorrow. For now it's off to the "Parent-Teen Thanksgiving Eve Dinner" that we do at church.

    Its snowing today and we are supposed to get lake effect snow tonight and tomorrow. Probably won't be as exciting as the storm we had in Bothel Washington in 1984. We had just put the turkey in the oven when a huge wind storm blew in and shut down all the power for the Seattle area. We had to walk to the only grocery store open in the area and buy turkey sandwich fixins.The poor turkey had to be thrown out after 6 hours with no power. The kids loved it cause we had to play with them all afternoon. Tomooroweveryone is meeting at my daughters for the traditional meal. Should be a nice day.

    You can have some of mine! We got 10 1/2 inches last week, 2 last night, and are expecting at least 4 tonight with 40 mph winds. It is most definately winter here! :)

    If you'd like some snow, you are welcome to join us for Thanksgiving in Michigan. We are set to get whacked tonight.
