Here in Southern Illinois, about 40 miles South East of St. Louis Missouri, I have about 8". I didn't measure it, just guessing, you be the judge. Here's a picture I took this morning to send to my Daughter and grandsons. Our temperature is supposed to be around 0 tonight, but the sun did shine all day today and main roads are clean and dry this evening.

The grandsons live 35 miles North of Springfield Missouri at Bollivar. The 12 year old wants snow very much, but they aren't going to get any, what a shame, grandpa would give him all of mine for free.

Here in SW Indiana they say we have 22". I've been out with the tractor and grader blade several hours today and there are places I couldn't get through. I-64 which is about 250' north of our house is currently closed again. They recued people this morning and then let raffic through for a while, but its closed agian with more stranded vehicles and people.

No White Christmas here in Nebraska. It dipped below zero the last two nights so the shop is to cold to work in. Merry Christmas to all.

I'm currently stuck at my parent's house in Sidney. We ended up with about 18" of snow here and the temps are around 0 this morning. Dad & I spent most of yesterday running the snowblower. If the road is passable to get to my house we're going to try to blow it out today. Thank goodness for four wheel drive! Merry Christmas to all, Mike.

Thanks for your posts guys, all I can say is WOW!. Unless someone else reports more, It sounds like GASENGN from Halbstadt, Indiana and the other fella from western Kentucky got the largest amounts 22" to 30" of the white stuff. Make sure you shovel off the roof, hitting a chimney covered with 30" of snow might ruin the big guys night. Merry Christmas All ! Smoke

They still haven't plowed my side street and my mailbox is up on the main drag, so I had to get the Cletrac out to go up and get the paper and the mail. Been snowed in for two days, but still having fun with the old iron! I'm sure my neighbors think I'm a lunatic!
