We are very thankful for this warm, comfy bed to hang out in especially today. As of a few hours ago, we have had 13+ inches/330.2 mm of snow with more coming down right now and more expected later.
We are also very thankful Mom doesn't have to go out in it today. We live in the Chicago suburbs, about 30 miles from Lake Michigan and this snow is what they call "lake effect snow". Mom's ancient digital camera doesn't capture how heavy it's coming down.
We also heard that our landscaping company has not been here since the snow started New Year's Eve in the afternoon to shovel.
