I remember the blizzard of 1967, although I was much, much younger. Funny, but this time the Chicago area was warned days ahead of time and yet hundreds of cars were stranded on Lakeshore Drive for over 9 hours from yesterday afternoon til this morning. I guess that just tells me that companies and people don't believe our weather forecasters. This storm covered 43 states and 2,000 miles. WOW!

I have a 5 foot drift by my front door and won't probably get plowed out til late this afternoon or maybe even later. Fortunately, we did not lose power. This storm is now going to bring us wind chills of 40 to 50 below tonight and tomorrow. Luckily we don't have to go anywhere and the cupboards aren't bare.

The sun is finally out and the snow stopped falling. Good day to read, sew, have a good cup of tea and enjoy.
