I'm 06082, supposedly it'* snowing like mad here. Must be invisibile because I can see nothing falling and the grass is a little brown.

This weekend wasn't bad. Last weekend was a bear. I had to go out at the height of the storm but the traction control and ABS worked like a charm. With all of that my wipers still froze up solid at the base from all of the snow accumulation and I couldn't get off my exit due to an accident. Traffic was single file at 15 mph but I had a long sturdy snow removal tool so I was able to clear the windshield enough to finally get off the highway and free the wipers with a screwdriver as an ice pick. The car was overheating while I was moving due to all of the snow caked between the radiator and the front bumper. ( I almost put that bottom panel back on two weeks ago.) I am used to driving in snow but that was rare for Richmond. We got heavy snow with lots of accidents this morning but by noon the highways were clear and almost dry which is more the norm for us.

Greater Hartford area, reporting in (smack dab between Bill and Justin, if that helps).

It'* been snowing all day, but it didn't start sticking until about 3:00 PM. The New Britain snowplowers could use some more funding; otherwise, I can't complain, except for my lack of a wiper switch (see other thread).

Seems like it'll stop late tomorrow morning, but it hasn't been too bad over here. I'm able to drive around town, though it'* hard to get going after some stop signs on hills. Average snowstorm, at best.
