Snapped a couple for those of you missing the white stuff. I have no idea how much we''ve really gotten, the wind is fierce, and the snow is drifting.

This is the house across the street, it was too brutal to go out and shoot my own.

Firegoddess, I love your avatar...I just adore Addison!!!

Island Dreams, yeah that would suck to have your snow-scenario...I often wonder about folks with "essential jobs" that cannot take a day off, cops, firefighters, doctors, nurses, paramedics mail deliveryfolk, news paper & media employees Fed Ex, UPS, those brave souls at the grocery stores...

They make the rest of us look like wimps. But we have to remember, they always say when the weather gets bad, clear the roads and stay home so the cops/docs/nurses/paramedics aren''t busy with tragic accidents, keeping the media busy reporting on it. Tis best to stay home if you can & I feel for those of you who HAVE to go into work & I''m grateful to you too....

Well, in a few hours, I may have my own pics to add to this thread. I love a good nor''easter as much as the next person. (as long as kids no school and mommy no workie workie

) However, my DH is in Ok. City right now for training (been there since last Tuesday and won''t be home til Fri.) I am a little nervous going through my first big storm in RI without him here. He''s just as worried for me and the kids (bless his heart). Oh, well. I''m hopeful that we get less of the sleet and freezing rain they are predicting in conjunction with this one. They''re saying just a tiny toggle either way will spell the dif. between 10 inches of snow and 3 inches of snow. Either way, they are predicting sleet and freezing rain.

Aw, I hope you just get snow. I have a new found loathing for the icy stuff. I took a pic of this tree in my neighbors yard today, there is a huge branch down below that''s broken and resting on their roof. After 2 ice storms, this is what you see peppered everywhere you look in this town. It''s pitiful...

It''s a blizzard here! DH and I tried snowblowing and shoveling, but an hour later the sidewalks and steps were covered again! Here is Daisy staying in the more shallow part of the snow pool (on the deck)...

Playing in the snow...it''s actually hard to get a clear picture because the flash kept catching the blowing snowflakes!

I love snow when I can stay in and admire it from my warm house while drinking hot chocolate, maybe making some excursions out to go sledding or something. Dylan thinks it''s the best thing ever.

Rumor has it that some crazy law student sued the University of Michigan back in the day for cancelling classes due to snow and not refunding him his tuition for that one day, and that they''ve never had a snow day since.

So I have to be on campus early tomorrow morning, regardless of how much snow accumulates tonight. (There''s already a bit out.) Boooooo. This aspect of it, combined with the fact that I walk/bike 2 miles to campus, is what I do not like.

We are outside of Philly and my kids have been obsessively checking for closures! There is no school so they are happy! This is our first snow day of the year...so they are thrilled!

I live outside of Philly, too! We''re in West Chester. I can''t wait for the snow to fall...maybe it''s because I''m from the Poconos. Let it snow!!!

In Philly too... but in Center Ciy!

I think the snow is pretty, but really only before it gets all mucked up and dirty. I don''t like having to walk through the city in it either on the way to the hospital in nice clothes.

I grew up in Buffalo though, so I think I''ve had my fill

I don''t have any pictures to add, but the ones you''ve all posted are pretty! I just got called by a coworker and we have a snow day tomorrow!!

It''ll definitely be a curl-up-with-a-cup-of-tea-and-watch-a-movie kind of day. I''m hoping my boyfriend can stay home from work too. What a good Valentine''s Day present!

I''m in Ohio and my kids had a snow day today (well, it''s after midnight so I guess it was yesterday) and they''re having one tomorrow. (today?) It has been fiercely blowing all day long. It''s been nice to curl up with a book and a warm kitty(s) on my lap.

I was channel flipping last night, and caught a guy on the weather channel warning people somewhere in NY that today, at some point, snow would be coming down at 4-5 inches PER HOUR.

Nice pics! I love snow... We're having a little light snow here in Montreal right now, I wonder if it'll get bigger during the day. Apparently we're supposed to get a big one...

We got ICE on top of our snow. They just said 4 inch accumulation with at least 1 inch being ice. This means I''m at home today! Woo hoo!!!

hoping the power lines stay where they are though. I''ve been through some nasty ice storms in Texas and I''d rather not experience that up here!

I''d anticipated not being able to come into work today (or not being willing to DRIVE into work today) so I emailed myself things to work on from home yesterday that have to be done today. I replied to my bosses email today saying everyone can use their discretion as to what to do today work wise, and told him I''ll be working from home for at least 1/2 the day, although I think I may just take the full day.

Yeah, it''s bad out there! FI went in a little late and found out he actually had a 2 hour delay and could have waited longer! We follow the federal gov''t so we have a 2 hour delay, but I am a once-a-week telecommuter so I''m working from home today. I was actually supposed to go in for a meeting and telecommute tomorrow but the meeting was cancelled. Think I can somehow swing it so I can stay home tomorrow too??? "That was the plan originally!!!" We have a lot of telecommuters so everything is available remotely. It works out well for days like these.

And thank you mam! Here''s one of the morning after. I love how the sun shines on snow, making it look like a million little diamonds. Try as I might, I just couldn''t capture that part of it enough to do it justice.

The storm certainly picked up since my post 7 hours ago! I don''t have a camera, I would have taken pics for you. But for those suffering from snow deprivation or withdrawal, I do have pics that were taken at my parents'' place a couple of weeks ago...
