Could be worse, guys.  You could be in Southern Wisconsin - 6 to 8 inches with balmy 30 mph gusts blowing outta the NE over Lake Michigan.

7 degrees here this morning, coldest of the season to date - yet probably warmer than the next two mornings as one day may go below 0.  Snow to follow Monday.

Clear sky with just past full moon last night on the snowscape made for almost daylight conditions,
temp quickly fell and ended up at lowest for this season at 6F before sunrise,
quick rebound this morning under bright sunshine, up to 12F an hour after sunrise.
