I can imagine. My parents are back in Gary, IN. I think they got the same weather as we did down here (West Lafayette, IN) and were at the top of the ice line. Chicago was definitely above the freezing rain line. I think I'd rather have the snow. At least then it wouldn't have taken 20 minutes to clear off my windows the other morning.AddFran said:Wow, you guys got a lot of ice, but not much snow.
We got a good 9 inches plus in Chicago.
The roads still are not plowed in alot of areas and people are getting stuck everywhere!
We have several people without power in Indiana as well. I don't have the statistics, but I think it's safe to say that many states got hit hard with this.mismodliz said:Kansas has been hit pretty hard. Most kids are going back to school today for the first time since before Christmas break.
Wednesday morning it was horrible in my town. We had about 2 inches of ice, sleet, and snow. When I walked outside to my car, my feet didn't make any imprints whatsoever. For the first time ever, my boss closed our office. It was just too dangerous to be out. Thankfully, we got a couple inches of snow later that day, which helps with traction.
Tens of thousands of people are still without power in Wichita. Last night on the news, they said about 44,000 still without. There are crews from several states working to help out Kansas.
That's really nice of them. It's great to see everyone helping each other, especially when businesses like hotels could take complete advantage of people in a bad situation.emrldsky said:One of the hotels in the area is offering people who lost their power 50% off rooms until Sunday. I hope that poeple without power everywhere don't have to wait too long until it's back up.
Eep! I'm sorry to hear that. We got a few inches of snow after I took those pictures (but of course, I didn't take pictures of the snow!) but now it's all melted.mismodliz said:We are still covered in ice here. It was supposed to get up to 50 this weekend, but of course it didn't. Another wonderful high of 29 and another cloudy day. More freezing rain and snow in the forecast. :evil:
