If you know of any great webcam views - for people in warmer climates like myself that marvel at the view of snow - can you post them?

It's ugly here. I don't know the exact measurement in inches, but it looks like we have at least 10-12. Wind is blowing like crazy.

Funniest site though... snowmobiles going up and down our street. Snowmobiles in the city? I didn't know that happened! :lol:

I just looked for a web cam of our weather Jenny, but they are all black since it's night time here. Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to post something.

Lots of snow here already... I'm guessing at least 6 inches if not more... They were predicting that this area could get anywhere from 8 to 24 inches... :o why, oh why did I ever choose to move back here?!?!? :-? Hope y'all have a safe night.. stay warm and stay off the roads!
