We are having a blizzard here in Ogle County.

This is the first snow of the season. All the area schools sent the kids home.

What is it like in your part of the state?

2. Yikes! My cousins are supposed to drive up to Flint MI from Springfield, tomorrow!

I'm beginning to wonder if maybe we shouldn't postpone the visit until NEXT weekend.

3. Our snow/blizzard is about to pass...

maybe another hour or two, then the snow will stop. However, the winds are so strong, it will be hard to tell.

A good day to stay in and off the highways.

SE Iowa.

4. St.Louis here and it's

blowing like crazy. Snow but not able to stick too much as it's blowing too hard.

Be careful out there.
