It started snowing during the night. The schools are closed, many government offices are closed, other businesses are closed or on some delay. We're going to have a hard freeze tonight, so the roads will be really dangerous tomorrow.

It's pouring rain here and has been doing so for hours. It's also cold, right above freezing at 33. It's so dismal and depressing.

Still rain here, although there is some ice mixed in. There are small icicles hanging from tree branches and bird feeders. I am so ready for this winter to be over.

Another dark, dismal, rainy day. It's been raining hard for several hours and there is standing water in places in the yard.

Fortunately, we don't have any ice. Let's hope for some sunshine tomorrow.

Oh, I'm sorry. We had some wind here, but nothing bad. I hope your power comes back soon. It's getting back down into the 30's here tonight, and I'm sure it's even colder there. Power failures are miserable.

Still down. Went to Denny’s for breakfast. Charged phone. Are using the generator finally to save the food. But house smells like gasoline, on hands on shoes etc. Hubs handling with usual grace. I really feel like we are in third world, as power company says 8pm the 5th. Monday.

There must have been a very widespread outage in your area if it's going to take the power company that long to repair the problem. I feel very badly for you. Sometimes my power has come back on sooner than the electric company said it would, so maybe yours will come back earlier than predicted. I hope that you aren't getting headaches from that gasoline smell. I know that there can be safety risks with generators so please be careful.

Beautiful picture of blue ice by the Mackinac Bridge. The ice floes were stacked up to 30 feet high this week. This is unusual around here. One of my nephews is the photographer.

That is beautiful and looks so very cold.

Ravzie, I guess you're still without power. I hope it returns very soon.
