For once I'm happy to be living in Michigan!! Due to the winter storm warnings throughout much of the greater metro-Detroit area, we have been advised not to drive this morning unless we have to.

Well, I sure as hell didn't HAVE to go to work today!! :laughing Most of the company is off on vacation already anyway. And, I have a 30 mile commute, which took 3.5 hours last time we had a snow storm. So my Christmas vacation started yesterday at 1, and I don't have to be back to work until the 3rd of January. :giddy

I took a couple pictures of the snow... don't know exactly how much we have so far, but it's enough! ;)

View out my front door....

A dumb ass in a Mini-Cooper that drove by as I was taking pictures... The snow on the roof of this car is a good indicator of how much we got this morning. Oh, and it's still snowing!

You can keep the snow. Right now it's 2.4 degrees outside and sunny as hell.:rolleyes

I'm in Ferndale (near Royal Oak) but I work in Plymouth. I just spoke to a friend in Plymouth and she said that they declared a snow emergency there.

Hmmm . . . I might be in Chicago next week too. Maybe. I'm not sure when exactly I'm heading out there, but sometime soon. Maybe next week, maybe the week after :confused

It's 50 degrees here in NY(downstate) and rainy today.

I miss the snow, but it lets me get out and finish my last minute shopping today.
You're going to go shopping today?? :eek I'd hate to be at the malls and am in fact thanking God that I wasn't scheduled at my p/t job since Tuesday.

Not at the mall - at a couple boutique stores in New Jersey - I'm done with the malls for now - I was at the malls yesterday and they were pretty well packed.

Angel, you say that 'cause it looks pretty in the pictures. I assure you that if you had to go outside, scrape it off your car, and take an hour to drive to the corner store, you wouldn't be jealous!! :laughing But I'd happily send it to you if I could!!

Krabill, I won't have access to a computer from Saturday until the 29th. I should know by then if I'm going or not.

Jdogg, Ooohhh, boutiques in Jersey!! How fancy schmancy!! :laughing Good that you don't have to go to the mall though. I imagine they are a suckfest today. And tomorrow.

BTW, it's going to be -1F Saturday morning when my flight leaves. And that scares me. Isn't it hard to de-ice planes when it's that cold. Anyone??

At one of the apartments I was living in up there I had a single mom living next door and since the snow/cold doesn't bother me, I'd always scrape off her car for her in the morning. I didn't even really know her, I'm just nice that way :D

Ok, instead of my daddy, you could just be my neighbor and that would be cool!! :laughing
