    We had a house roof collapse about a mile from me. We're in a bit of a warm spell this week. Temps should only briefly go below freezing tonight. This will give a good chance for some stuff to melt.

    This year we decided to keep the car in the driveway and squeeze the PUP into the one car garage. So glad we did! It would be buried and I would be worried about it leaking or a branch falling on it or something. Goodness...I never realized I was so anxious but I don't want anything to get in the way of my camping. [CP]

    8 to 12 inches of wet and heavy snow!!! Now the wind is starting. Will spring ever come? The past couple days was nice ... upper 30's and 40.

    Oh brother... I have to watch what I ask for! In 3 days we've managed to melt off 3/4 of the snow and ice that was 2 1/2 to 3 foot deep. A thunderstorm and showers added to the mess yesterday. Roads were flooded last night and then re-froze this morning!
    All in all I would have took it in stride, but the 7 day forecast is calling for high temps below the freezing mark all next week and I still can't get to my pup to play. It's a total mess! :( I just keep looking at camping pics at the national parks and thinking of spring!

    Yesterday we had blizzard like conditions with lighting and thunder at the same time. First time I have experienced that. Spring can come any time now.

    We didn't get all the snow that was predicted in the northen middle of Wisconsin. But that's only because it started out with ice pellets, moved onto some weird rain/sleet thing, and then finally snow. So there's a wonderful sheet of ice beneath the snow! And then the wind picked up and is blowing the snow all over, just making things worse.

    I love Wisconsin. And I usually love the winter and snow. But I'm done. When's the next bus/train/airplane south? I'm thinking Key West sounds good right about now...

    The last few days have been above freezing [8D] so things are melting! We had about 2 feet of snow on the ground, but now a lot less. Today it's going to be in the lower 50's and tomorrow in the upper 40's. But then Tuesday it's gets cold again and now I'm hearing about a snow storm Tuesday into Wednesday!!! [V] [V] [V]

    As a church posted on it's outside board "WHO EVER IS PRAYING FOR SNOW, PLEASE STOP!!!"

    NOAA has us down for snow every day this week. It seems like spring is still pretty far away. [:(]

    We did get some snow melt up here in Northern IL last week along with rain and now ice. The big thing is now the -10 degrees forecast for tonight! It's good that the snow is still here on all of the plants to keep them warmer. I do see that the goldfinches at our feeders are looking more yellow each day. That has to mean something!!!.......

    Pandp--I have noticed the goldfinches getting yellower here too. Had a robin the other day. Poor thing probably wonders why he or she came back to all this snow and cold!

    We have received about 100 inches of snow so far for the season in northern IN. My POP is safe and snug in the garage, though.
