    Officially 8" here in southern. IL. IDOT closed I57 due to over 50 accidents and snow drifts. IDOT also issued a tow ban, so I guess if your stuck, tough luck!

    I just took my wife's Rottweiler out, the storm door off the front porch was frozen shut. I had to break it loose with the palm of my hand. I was really shocked to see so much snow and the wind is absolutely brutal and it's now 25 degrees.

    The weather guessers, guessed 1 to 2 inches for us - horray for the heartland.

    "Irish weather forecast: Met Eireann reveal 'widespread frost', hail, sleet and 'wintry showers' on the way as temperatures to plunge to -3C"

    Cool and rainy today and tomorrow then: "Meanwhile, Tuesday will be a very cold day with sunny spells and widespread showers. The showers will continue to be wintry in nature, falling as a mixture of rain, hail and sleet."
