Sunny but boring. No driving permitted. I'm trapped, sitting here as fair game for my wife's house expansion ideas, which is a dangerous place to be.
I got you beat, was stuck home with wife and 2 yr with flu and 5 yr who will likely have it soon enough, couldn't wait to get out and plow

That's one of the best storm pics I've seen yet. Been following the event on the weather sites. Most of their pics are pretty tame.
