This system passed through Wisconsin on it's way to the east coast...one of the most magnificent snow storms we have ever had, breathtaking beauty, this morning we had ice fog, never heard of it but oh my the beauty, all of the trees were covered with snow with the fog gently caressing everything. By the way looks like we are sending another storm your way...make a big batch of chili and some home made bread and take lots of pictures. Life Is Good!

I love the picture of the mailman on Union St. It should be submitted in a photo contest.

Unbelievable! Our two daily newspapers were delivered to the back door this morning, as usual. My problem was opening the door to retrieve them. Incredible.
