    What's the #1 worst snowstorm? I have never been to that region, let alone Wisconsin. Hopefully, I will in the future.

    We are suppose to get hit here on this side of the lake too. I'm about 20 miles from Lake Michigan in Southwest Michigan. I am really beginning to hate that lake effect snow. I think when I retire someday I'll move to Arizona.

    Yeah... in NorthCentral Wisconsin.. it is sunny and balmy 18 degrees, but not an ounce of snow... so bright I have to wear shades. ;)

    For those in the snow.. be safe and take it easy.

    it's snowin like a motherpucker here in illinois - left work early or i wouldn't have made it home at all. several highways around here have been shut down due to whiteout conditions. winds blowing, snow should be around 11" by the time it's all said & done. be safe everyone.
