What is your weather like right now?

37F, and cloudy. I was at the dentist's for teeth cleaning this morning, and an older woman came in just soaked. She'd fallen on black ice in the parking lot. Thankfully, she told me she wasn't hurt. Be careful out there!

Great Plains Blizzard - that's all that needs said. Only light snow so far, but 30-40 mph winds creating a mess for any sort of travel out here on the prairie.

I think we've gotten another two inches since I woke up...leaving early for work.

Your phrase "Great Plains Blizzard" reminded me of this tragic blizzard in 1888.

Sunny, mid 50's and the snow is gone, for now!

The weather has been great, warming nicely, the snow is melting. Today they put out a blizzard warning. They say it's coming from the south (Iowa) not sure how much we will get, depends on what station you listen too. I've heard anywhere from 3 to 10'. Time will tell.....in SE South Dakota

I read that link AB, it's something I knew nothing about. How tragic and terrifying that had to be. Thanks for the very interesting history lesson.

Such a sad story. Those poor families. I know I've weathered a few doozies of winter storms during my lifetime, but at least it was during modern times and sturdy housing. I've got no complaints.

We had a blizzard a week ago. Since then the weather has been on the mild side. We even got into the mid 50's today. As far as I'm concerned an early spring would be more than welcome now even though this has been the mildest winter I can remember.
