monster storm!

I live in the Chicago area and we are getting dumped on with snow! We have a blizzard warning up for the next 24 hours. I know this storm is massive and I think lots of you in different states are feeling the effects with maybe an ice/snow mix depending on where you live?? Times like this I am glad Whimsy goes on a pee-pad.
Stay safe and warm if you are getting this storm!

The storm is headed our way with an anticipated ETA of after midnight. It certainly has been a challenging winter this year and one that has me hankering for a more temperate climate. Arizona is starting to look good to me.

Be careful. You're lucky Whimsy goes on a pee pad. I'm about to deal with heaven knows what with the troops.

It really is brutal - we have received 20 inches of snow and 6-8 ft. snow drifts. DH shoveled an area for Sissy.

Post Dangerous Weather

I'm feeling for you all--that much snow is just awful. In Cincinnati and Hamilton, we have ice coating the driveway with snow due tomorrow. We're not expecting the vast amount you have (I hope). A cousin in Southern Illinois expects 20" by tomorrow. There's no way Keeper can go for a walk---you can't stand up in this. Thank heavens for potty pads although the walks are sorely missed and he's telling us that! Keep safe.

We're in between waves right now... It snowed all day, for a total of about 8-10". Now it has stopped, but it's supposed to start again before midnight, and snow straight through the day tomorrow, at times coming down at more than an inch per hour. Ho much depth we get depends a lot on the snow line... we are in the area that MIGHT change to freezing rain for part of the time or might not. I'm not sure which is worse!

Is it too late to start getting in the Christmas spirit?

Be careful and stay inside, if possible! All we're getting down here is rain!

We are under a blizzard warning, too. We'll see how this potty thing goes tomorrow. I have some pee pads if we need them. My daughter has a snow day at Michigan State University-guess the third time in 161 years! Every one stay safe and warm.
