We have not had good snow for 8 years, and it will not be melting off anytime soon.

The only thing I'm looking forward to is getting the snowblower out again.
Hope the maroons aren't driving slow tomorrow morning on my way to Bloomington.

North of Galesburg we have 9 inches of new fluffy snow! The wind hasent started blowing yet so it looks like the UP. The snow is sitting so beautifully on everything, what a winter wonderland. 30 mph wind by tonight and the roads will be blocked and the fields will be bare. Thats ditch banging in IL.

About 5-6" of Yooper like fluff here in Morton this morning.
My flight to Vegas for a business trip got cancelled; looks like I'm stuck at home blowing snow after all!
No ditchbanging for me - No base.
