Up here in western WA, we've had sun the last several days but not quite as warm as you.
Yeah, the midwesterners can be rightly jealous of us, but we do contend with earthquakes. I can actually bicycle from my house to the exact epicenter of the 1989 quake in the San Francisco Bay Area. Santa Cruz was roughed up pretty badly but my house is on bedrock fortunately. :shades:
Well, off to the beach---ta-ta :P
Our mid-morning flight got canceled at 11pm Monday, but not due to weather. Too few bookings. I was online when the email came in. After 45 minutes on hold, a great agent with American got us rebooked on a couple of earlier flights and we got to NYC in plenty of time for dinner and a play.
The Weather Channel went a bit overboard with all the impending disaster stories.
Right now, our only issue is the driveway. I removed a 3-foot high drift in front of the garage earlier, and got halfway down. My stronger half is out there finishing the job (I hope).

Yesterday we had an icy preview of things to come before this one hit. I walked (skated a bit) across the street to check on a neighbor but she was fine. (Couple of years ago she slipped on a patch of ice on her patio and broke her wrist.) While I was talking with her yesterday, one of her sons showed up and immediately began scraping off her car windows. When she called out to tell him not to bother he answered, "I'm just working on the first layer---tomorrow morning we're supposed to get the worst of it!"
He was right. Overnight it warmed up to 35 degrees, rained a bit and turned to freezing rain, ice, what a mess. Around 6AM I opened up my back door for my cat just to convince her that she needed to stay inside. I saw a few flashes of "blue lightning" which is electricity arcing from power lines and transformers. Really lights up the sky. Scared the cat too.
Winter weather is one of the things that always sends people out to the neighbors to ask if anyone needs something from the store, or needs help getting a car cleaned off, etc. Dangerous stuff though if you take a fall or get caught out on the road in it.
Anyone digging out in the Chicago area? I've watched some of the weather channel coverage and it looked nasty.
I support a site in Houston(remote), and I can't get a vendor into the location due to snow.
Here in the Eugene area, it's clear skies...
Only about a month left before the chances of a snow event pretty much evaporate...
