You know it's bad when in the middle of a snow storm the only thing you think of (knowing of course all my family members are safe) is how
this is affecting anyone leaving for Europe. So just know I'm thinking of all of you and wishing you good luck with your travels!

I doubt the planes will take off in this weather, Mary.

Thank Gucci I went to the liquor store last night to stock up on groceries.

Thanks for the good wishes Travelfan! We are among those, but thankfully not leaving until Friday. We're flying CVG through Dulles to Europe. Hopefully the weather will clear by then and the airport reopen.

I just shoveled loads of ice and snow off the driveway and my son in Muncie,Indiana with 18" of snow is planning on driving down today. Wish he wasn't....

As I awoke to frozen sleet and snow this morning, the local weather report said it would be 5 degrees next Monday.....but the high will be 57 in Paris, which is where I'll be next week

You can keep the ice, but I'd love to have some of that snow sent our way!! Last week, we got 2.5 inches, which is a mere tease to die hard snow lovers like us (inc. the cocker). It was gone within 24 hours.
Some of my favorite winter memories were from Syracuse, NY, which can really get dumped on (I hear it may be snowing up to 3 inches per hour there later today with total accumulations over 2 feet on top of all they've gotten already). Thank heavens for winter rats.

Hope all the snowbound Fodorites are as well prepared as MM and have a nice fireplace to cozy up to.

We're supposed to get 15-30 inches here in Northern Vermont. So far very powdery and light. Would love to avoid the sleet.

Here's hoping Tuscanlifeedit gets to take off from PIT to CDG today; not looking real good here in the 'Burgh at this moment.

I just cleared our driveway here in the northern end of the Shenandaoh Valley. We lucked out and only got about three inches of snow and about a half inch of ice on top of that. The sun is now shining brightly and it is warming up nicely..

Mike I hope you have good luck getting into NYC today. Right now in the city is a horrible mix of sleet/ice/snow. I can't see buildings 4 blocks away. Not sure of airport status....

I'd be happy to send some over. Just how do I do that?

I spent an hour this morning shoveling a path through about a foot of snow. Two hours later, I needed to do it again, but I'm waiting a little bit. Good thing I did the first round, or I wouldn't get out of the house! Sure glad I don't have a flight leaving today or tomorrow!

Gee, all this cold weather, all these business closings, all these people home from work, and all happening on Valentine's Day? I'm wondering how high the birth rate might be around November 14, 2007.
