    I finished all my outdoor chores early this morning. The animals are settled, fed and watered. I brought in extra firewood to let it dry and warm up. We just went grocery shopping, so we're squared away if the weather gets too bad.

    It started about 1.5 hrs ago here. We've already got 2 inches easy. They're calling for 5-10 inches in this storm alone and I hear we've got 2 more coming before Christmas hits.

    Anyone else getting hammered today? It's a nice cozy day inside with cocoa for us. [​IMG]

    There have been 400+ school closings in West Michigan ALONE (which is why I am on BYC instead of at work teaching!), and this storm is going straight across the lower peninsula. They have predicted up to 12" of snow in some areas before this thing winds down this afternoon.

    We are expecting a big storm today, Boston and most cities have cancelled school or called for half days. Where I am we are to get 10-12 inches or more. MY son was hoping to wake up to no school today but he got a half day.

    The entire trip from Oregon (school) to Washington (home) is snow!!!

    I can't get home!

    The chickens neeeeed me!!!

    AND they are running out of food so parents/brother have been instructed to just do the corn after it's all gone since there's no way to get to the store.

    We had snow on Wednesday, and expecting more this weekend-- none so far-- I think we'll get your storm when you're done with it [​IMG]
