Got about 8 inches of snow the last 2 days out in central Massachusetts. Mostly light snow the last day or so and then last night it came down pretty good. Boston got about 15 inches and right around Boston for over 20. Temp is 3 degrees right now.
I live in a northwestern suburb of Chicago. We got a total of 15" over the previous 2 days. Temp when I got up this morning was 0. We are projected to get a couple more inches of snow tomorrow and have a -8 high temperature on Monday!
What I want to know is when I moved to the Arctic!!! LOL
SE Michigan here. We got about 8" in my area. This morning, it was -13 on the DH's drive in to work. Right now, it's 10am est, -3 and sunny. Go figure. Oh, and windy! And starting Saturday, we're supposed to get another 8-10 inches of snow by Monday morning when the high for the day will be 4.
So glad I took these two days off work to finish the holidays. I'm sitting in front of the fireplace keeping my toes warm!
My weather can be easily summed into one word: HORRID! We been in the negatives for the past few days with 5" snow and getting more here tonight or tomorrow. I don't remember it might be an extra 4-6" currently got a winter storm warning. So, yes.. Horrible.
Forgot to mention thats Indiana for you. Weather change every 5 seconds as we love to say.

Here in the northwest suburbs of Chicago we are at -15 with a nasty wind chill since the wind is gusting to around 25 mph or so. Only supposed to be to -9 for a high. I don't remember a winter like this since the early 80's. Stay warm fellow midwesterners!!
I'm under a state of emergency as of yesterday evening. No one is allowed to drive (pretty much to sum it up, leave their homes) unless under an emergency. Enjoying another day at home *sarcasm* I think outside we might have 12"+ of snow.
@Munchkin thank you, am trying. Got -12 with wind chill of -40 according to weather channel. That channel right now is my best friend literally xD Plus video games as well. I am so thankful that the cities are doing everything they can do for us. You stay warm too!

We here in Upper Michigan will finally start to get out of our cold snap when we reach a high temp of 2 on wednesday. Sunday and yesterday were the worst with a -26 and the wind chill pretty much doubling that. Only problems I had were my daughter's truck which has been in the shop for two weeks waiinfg for a part so we have had to share a vehicle between three members of the family within a 20 mile radius. Then Sunday was double trouble. First, I ended up with a sidewall flat but it was a slow leak and I keep a air compresser in the car so that worked out untill I was able to get a new tire. Then the belt on the furnace blower broke on Sunday around 8 pm (when else?) but we got some one to come over pretty much right away and fix it. Still some more work to do on it but at least it's warm in the house. I will be picking up an extra belt for just such emergencies form now on. Saturday its suppose to get up to 30 degrees and everyone in town is looking forward to it. Maybe a beach party on the shores of Lake Superior!

The Chicago area is about to break out of the sub-zero temperature zone. Woo-Hoo!!!!! It was only -6 this morning with very little wind and we are supposed to get all the way to 25. "WE'RE HAVING A HEAT WAVE...A TROPICAL HEAT WAVE" as the song says!! Hope you guys will be joining us soon...
Heading back into the Polar Vortex! Not as bad as the last one. This one is only suuppose to last untill Thrusday and then its gone. Three or four days of cold I can handle but not two or three weeks of it. At least the furnace is up and running correctly now.
