Need a sled and a 10 yr. old body again. We had a beautiful snow storm today and it's not finished yet. The snow began at 10 this morning and the prediction is it won't end until tomorrow. Total amount predicted is between 4 and 11 inches. I didn't have to go out in it today which is why I think it's so pretty. I stayed off the streets? Anyone else get snow today or is expecting snow tonight or tomorrow?

Not today...but Monday. We just had that blizzard on Tuesday so we're catching up from that. We didn't get alot of snow but the winds were incredible! Enjoy your snow!

This storm dropped 6 inches and now they are talking maybe more next week. It only snows when my busy is busy or gone...lol I get the job of shoveling since no kids around here want to do it. Thanks for responding.

I wish we were getting snow instead of this ice storm! We could get 2-3 inches of ice and freezing rain. Thankfully I don't have to drive in this. If I did, I would be cancelling many of my clients. No way do I risk life and limb to drive on bad roads.

Ice storms are awful. We had a nasty nasty one last year. Don't blame you for staying home today and not going on the slick roads. Thanks for responding. Take care and keep warm, carolbee

Feb 1, 2008, predicting freezing rain from 10AM today to 5AM tomorrow morning, but it looks like snow to me! Like I said, we get what you get unless some kind of change takes place, we just get it hours later. Wish they had told us snow, there were runs on the stores last night and I won't be going into work tonight because there won't be any business. Take care and keep comfy!

We have something in common: I share our nasty weather with you and I also work on Friday nights. So does this make us cousins? lol We ended up with 6 inches of snow and I might add, it was heavy. I shoveled last night. My husband had his turn this morning. He did a better job. Stay warm, carolbee

We haven't had much snow at all this year in Indiana. We haven't had enough to get a sled out or make a snowman or anything. We are supposed to have a wintery mix tonight do no telling what we will end up with.

Ouch, that's alot of snow. If I was 10 again I'd love it and be out sledding. I'm only 5 decades past 10 which makes me pretty old. Thanks for responding.

I'm too old this year to go sledding. Last year would have been better since I was a year younger..lol I did my share of shoveling this storm so am recovering from those aches and pains today. Thanks for responding.

LOL too funny, I'm several hours behind on this discussion but we're getting the snow today and all schools in the area were canceled. Needless to say I've had a 16 year old with ADHD home all day - just as I read your discussion he came in and said, "Mommmm I think you need to get dressed really warm and come out and pull me around on the sled." No, we have a gator here so I'd drive pulling him behind it but now he's clearing trails as I told him I'm not leaving the house until I get this room painted.

The last time I took out a sled to go with our kids, I was about 40. I dove on the sled just like they did and the next day I had bruises from my knees to my waist...lol This is why I need a 10 yr. old body again. We have loads of schools closed today. The snow quit very early this morning and came your way. Thanks for responding, carolbee

Oh you wouldn't get this lady on a sled these days - can't remember the last time I did but I'm happy just watching, perferably from inside :) LOL - New Years Eve I took 2 grandkids out (we got a huge storm and they were spending the night). We made snow angels and a snowman and I felt that the next day. It's still snowing here but I don't think we're going to get the 12 inches they were talking about - we're at maybe 6 now and it's just a real light snow.
