The "first of the year" snowfall - and a wonderful one it was!!!
Princeton, Illinois is where I'm at and it's the spot that received the brunt of the snow - about 18 inches. WhooHoo!!!
Interstate 80 is closed and traffic is being routed on Route 6 through Princeton.
I'm listening to WGN radio and something like 45 miles in one direction and 75 miles in the other direction - closed.
People have been sitting in their cars, stopped, since 7 am - it's now about 5 pm.
