looks like were gonna get a bit o' the white stuff. Remember it is not snow it is Dandruff from Heaven!!! SNOW is a four letter word. Word to the wise, send head and shoulders to heaven, maybe we can get some relief!!! Good luck, I no longer have anywhere to put the snow, so I guess shoveling is out of the question. I will just turn my lights off and pretend I am not home till spring, which looks to be only 4 months away form my wisconsin calendar

We can't shovel anymore either. The banks at the edge of my driveway are approaching the 7 ft level and we can't toss the snow that high anymore with shovels. I have already hired someone to take care of the 8-12" coming tomorrow. It will be well worth the $25 to have someone else deal with it.

I'd like to know who you're getting to do a driveway for $25. Our guy is cheap, and he charges $40-50. (I think I'm going to have to ask him what the difference is between a $40 job and a $50 job. Maybe it depends on how much snow we've had?)

Anyhow, I'm cozy and warm indoors and as long as someone ELSE is handling my driveway I'm perfectly fine with some more snow. It's good for the lake levels when the spring runoff comes. And it's kind of an adventure.

So far it is raining and freezing rain. Still some snow coming later, but not as much as was predicted.

So far it is just rain-like sleet for Two Rivers. I don't think we're going to get as much snow as originally predicted either. Amazing to me how much the snow shrunk down overnight, wierd. Good day to just hang out indoors.

We are close to Wausau and it started snowing about 9 AM. It is coming down at a decent clip. Our snowblower broke but our son will come over when it is done with his snowblower so it is all good!

I got up this morning around 6 to freezing rain. A couple of hours later it changed to snow and it's been coming down in piles since. The weatherman said about two inches an hour.

Madison, Sunday at noon. Looks like a good crust of ice has fallen, for the past few hours there has been a good drizzle. No snow falling in SE Madison so far, I think we are just off the edge of the moving band of snow.

Same here in Watertown so far. It's all rain and freezing rain. The expected snow totals have dropped and we're expected to get more like 3" instead of the 10" predicted earlier.

Personally, I'd rather have the snow--this rain and ice is no fun at all. My poor dogs (greyhounds) aren't enjoying it much, either. They don't want to go outside.
