You know, Gobblers Knob is looking pretty good right now.

Lake Shore Drive is one of the busiest urban highways in the country. Today it looked like a parking lot, as nearly 1,000 people had to abandon their cars and walk home in the middle of the night.
Punxsutawney Phil, America’s favorite groundhog, predicted there will be an early spring today, when he failed to see his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob, in Punxsutawney, Pa.

The snow drift ran up to my windows. I couldn’t even open the front door!

Early spring, huh?

Seriously, Phil.

Could have fooled me.

    I’ve been thinking about you with all the snow out there. Luckily, everything has been just north of us, but it is definitely getting tiresome!

    A toast of knob creek to Gobbler’s Knob! Even those of us in Texas are expecting snow!

    OK Sarah is no longer allowed to comment. LOL 😉

    We got dumped on in Michigan, too. If anyone want’s in my house they have to go through the garage.

    Whoa, look at your apartment! Poor chilly thing, I hope you have enough hot cocoa in there. I must say, your snowflakes look amazing in that picture – it’s truly a beautiful shot with all the red and the snow picking out the stripey details of the building.

    Oh my God! It’s so exciting! Snuggled up in front of the fire with a cup of tea (insert your favorite drink here …)with a good book or knitting away lovely colorful yarn! Stick your tongue out at the snow and enjoy yourself!
    (I do hope you are OK!!)

    What is it about the English that 5 inches of snow make them think it’s the Arockalypse?
    I have to admit I kind of wish I was in your place right now, snowed in with every excuse to just snuggle up to Lola and let, as Germans say, God be a good man. Or woman.
    Snow always brings out the happy kid in me, even though I know it probably, on the whole, causes more havox than joy. But running out in the middle of the night to make sure your footsteps are the only ones to be seen for many hours to come IS kind of magical.
    Please be safe and warm, lass, and if you can, feed the birds in your area. They will be thankful. Tweet.

    Havoc, for crying out loud. HAVOC, not havox! Sorry, new keyboard, takes a tad of getting used to.

    Lisbonlioness… I kind of liked havox. More havoc-y sounding.
