    I'm surrounded by snow, and well, lots of it. I am so thankful that the electricity did not go out last night and I hope that it continues to stay on. Have about 2 feet, but easily have 4 feet drifts.

    We're at a standstill too. Head of transportation for Illinois said that only government workers should be out...even then plows are getting stuck, not sure how they are getting to work.

    Good question. Actually, no it's not normal. Sure we get plenty of snow, but not like this...not all at once. This happened essentially overnight.

    The Washington DC area gets hit with snow like that about once every 10 to 20 years. Last winter a similar storm shut down the Federal Government offices for an entire week. This area comes to an utter standstill with just a couple of inches. Last Wednesday we got snow ranging from 2-3 inches to 12-14 inches depending on where you lived. It took some folks up to 14 hours to get home from work and some never made it home, but slept in their cars overnight. There were cars off of the road everywhere.
