A groundhog wouldn't even try to get to work today. And neither did most of us. Hundreds of business and nearly all area schools closed in the wake of the historic blizzard as Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett declared an unofficial "weather holiday."

Frozen Lake Michigan. This ice shelf luckily kept the 15 foot waves from flooding the coastline areas. I'll post some photos of our area later - not quite as pretty, just covered in snow. It appears that our backyard received 3 feet, due to the massive snowdrifts created by the 55 mph winds. My guess is we got a foot, foot and a half in truth.
Which means Una's working from home today (in a sweatsuit tuxedo, no less). Woo hoo!
