It hit!

Just like in the movie, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, we officially are in the midst of a blizzard.

Snowfall totals as of early this morning were 15.5 inches at the airport (which we live in sight of). It's still coming down and it's blowing all over the place. I saw some 3 foot snow drifts. DH and all his online weather geeks are all excited. Yes, my husband has a live webcam set up outside so those other guys can look at it and drool. Silly men! Oh well, whatever floats their boats.

Hope you are all staying safe and warm if you are in the path of this massive storm! It will be making our top ten for snowfall amounts.

Oh, and I made it in to work safely--what little traffic there was was moving along at 30-25 MPH on the interstate. I did get stuck on one of the roads by my house but some nice, helpful guy jumped out of his truck and helped push my car around the corner. The snow is DEEP! I do have some mad driving skills if I must say so myself. I'm good at getting through this. Bring it on!

Yay for a white Christmas. I don't think this stuff will come close to being melted by 12/24.

Drive safely. I'm glad I don't have to go anywhere. I just got in from shoveling and I'm tired. We technically got about 4 inches. Most of the yard is bare but there are very large drifts in our driveway and at the front door.

I don't mind the snow, but the cold with the wind isn't my favorite!

I want some snow! Share, you selfish Wisconsiner. Wisconsinite? (Firefox likes the second one better.)

Also, be safe! ♥
