Yep, looks like more coming our way this weekend and again next week as well.

Would gladly take all this snow in smaller doses...but Mother Nature has not given me a choice!

For all who will be getting this bad weather...plan early...stay safe and stay warm!

Our 7 year old grandson (Jackson Tavegia) lives in Baltimore and he wore his jammies inside out so it would snow. :o)

Jack and Daddy (our oldest son, Scott) are coming for spring break!

I will admit that I just said to my 4 YO daughter yesterday that I hoped we would get one big snow storm before the end of the winter so the kids could use the new (and very cool) sleds that Santa brought for them. It was my fault... ;)

Our oldest is now shoveling his drive for the 3rd time and he said it's a very heavy type snow but he didn't say how much they've gotten so far. They're in Sparrows Point. Guess his store (Best Buy in Towsend) will be closed. Hope they can get out for church (Eastern Assembly of God) tomorrow!

Be safe~~

I live in the northern most part of VA near WVA, MD and PA and we are definately snowed in.

Even after having shoveled several times yesterday, still almost couldn't get the storm door open this morning.

Also lots of drifting now.

Lost power for about 4 hrs, but we were lucky and it came back...praying that it stays on.

Oh yea, we are expecting another storm come Tues & Wed with about 5 more inches...so if anyone has a snow plow bring it on! lol

Everyone effected by the storm, stay safe, stay warm and prayers to make it through this weather!

Icky rain and mid 30's in middle Georgia. I'd rather have snow. We lived up north for most of our almost 40 years of marriage and I miss the snow....

I live in southeast Idaho. We usually have snowdrifts higher than our cars, more snow in the mountains to maintain our reservoirs for farmers in the summer, and we haven't had any of that this winter. It's been downright dismal.

As I mentioned I live in northwest portion of VA. It seems to be slowing down now...but not over yet.

Biggest prob here, besides shoveling all that white stuff, is where to put it when you get a shovel full! The piles next to the driveway are already over 5 ft.

Oh well, just another challenge...guess the grandkids will be out of school for next week as there is no way they will get to secondary roads before the next snow on Tues. They have not even been able to keep up with the interstate roads.

Next will be praying for a slow gentle thaw to all this...otherwise we will have more water than we want!

Will take what comes, is there another choice? lol

Keeping prayers going for all effected to either get power restored or keep it if they have it.

Don't know where you live, but our wonderful (lol) storm is headed east over the Atlantic, so prob not what will bring you snow Wed.

There is another coming across from the west coast that is to bring us more snow on Tues - Wed. That may be the one you will get.

Take care out there!
