I just got this picture from my sister.
It snowed up in Illinois and it has definitely put my snow to shame.
I really miss those big snows. I can only remember one really big one from when I was a kid. My dad calls it "the snow storm of '79." So it must have been big enough and significant enough to remember.
I also lived up in Wisconsin on more than one occasion, and I can remember a couple of doozies when I was there. One winter I can remember that the water tower at the Northland campus froze. The entire campus was without any significant water pressure for a couple of days. A couple of smelly days.
Anyway, I thought that I would post this picture just so my southern friends could see what a real snow looks like...
