Here in Maryland!  It's coming down now, in big soft flakes.  Really beautiful!

Light flurries in Chicago today - very pretty, with very light airs as wind, everything is wearing a sparkling white frosting.

"Light airs"...I never heard that phrase before OW, but it's such a lovely descriptor.

Nine inches is nobody's idea of light frosting! ;)

What I hear of the east coast this year reminds me of our 3 record-breaking years in Chicago - '79, '80 and '81 I think.  A season with 96" of snow - which may be what you folks are working up to - is highly memorable.  You have my total sympathy, but I really don't want to share in your experience.  Sorry.

 ;D Here in Maryland, last winter was extraordinary - this winter it seems to be the New York area.  My sister lives in CT - She has tried to come visit us 2 times this winter and both times have been unable to do so because of the snow between us and them. ;D.  My children, of course, loves this (as does my big kid  ;) )

I assumed that about all kids - even if the snow doesn't block their required activities, it's lots of fun afterwards! ;D
