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.

    wow that is scary though!

    Great pics! Of course I think it's great but I'm not having to live with it.

    I actually have to go out today, and to get to my destination I have travel thru 6 towns. I hope it's not too bad. I heard that many roads have one lane.

    We're slowly digging out and today we get to try and find our mailbox since it's buried under about a 6 foot snow drift.

    Is spring coming soon?????????????

    I sure hope so! It feels like a cave when leaving my front door since the snow is so high.
