We are also being covered in snow. All schools in the area are closed. I can't wait to take the kids out and play and go sledding on the small hill near our house. We have not gotten nearly enough snow for Wisconsin this winter. We are supposed to be up near 10 inches before it is done. Nothing compared to the snow that hit the east, but good enough for me.

Yeah, I should be taking this time to knit instead of reading this, and bidding on yarn on ebay and watching dull tv, etc. Kids are watching Toy Story 2 right now, but we will be doing crafts in a few minutes. It always seems like something is getting in the way of my knitting. :(

No snow here, but my best friend in Cambridge, ON is snowed in big time. We've found winter here though. The current temp is -28C with a wind chill of -42C

Yes well, we had quite a wind storm last night. I was freezing! I mean, it was almost down to 40 degrees! Brrrr!

We live amongst the palm trees, so that is cold to us.

We're having a huge downpour with thunder! :rollseyes: It's supposed to get much colder later, though, so we could have lots of ice...

I like snow! If you go to my blog, you can see a few pics I took at the mountain last week (we currently have holidays here in France!).
