Post up some pictures of the snow you got. This is at my house. About 35 miles SW of Chicago.

Damn!  We got about a foot, but you guys got hammered.  Watching the news this morning showing Lake Shore Drive.  What a mess that was last night.  People being rescued on snowmobiles.

Jeez Pinto, I feel for you guys. My son is in Indianapolis and he just called & said the whole city is shut down. He was born in Florida & with this economy had to relocate to Indiana. When I told him it was 84 & sunny here. He told me what I could do with my sunshine.  Heh Heh

Yeah, still pretty messy around here. I live out in an unicorporated area of town so the roads are still not the best. I took a drive around in my wife's 4x4 earlier and almost ended up in the ditch. Hopefully they get it cleared up a bit more by morning.

Here's a few more pics...

I don't see how you guys live in those conditions.  A major snowstorm for us is 2 - 3 inches.  Ya'll stay warm and dry and we'll see you in the spring.

I'm not complaining...I LOVE snow. It's so peaceful after it snows. Everything is quiet, and the trees are beautiful to look at. I just stay off the roads and work from the house. I lived in San Diego for a year (2008-2009) and missed the seasons (as nice as San Diego was!!).

My wife and I are looking to sell our house in sunny Mesa, Arizona so give me a buzz when you're finally tired of freezing, blowing snow, crashing cars, melting ice, etc...

Our last 3 storms, all in the past 2 weeks, have been 12", 14" and 9"- the 9" is the one that dumped so much on most of you folks. Starting tonight and into tomorrow we're predicted to get another 8"-12". The snow banks where I pile the snow when I plow the drive way are 5' high on one side and close to 7' on the other.

I'm sitting here in South Florida with all the windows and doors open letting th fresh 79 degree air in wondering how you folks put up with that much snow.  Lived in NY for a short time and went thru 8" snows a couple times but can't imagine snow like your pics.

I recognize that snow blower -- Ariens, self propelled, two stage.  After we got 40 inches here in Maryland last year, I bought one for this season.  So far, we've not had that much.  Worst was 8-12 inches of *VERY* wet snow.  It caused a lot of broken branches in trees all around town.  Snow blower worked great for me.
