I am in southwest Wisconsin and its bad here. About 9 inches last I heard. Wind will start later up to 50 mph. I am not sure I will get my car unburied.

We have probably around 10 inches or so as of right now (just outside Des Moines).  We lost power during the night for a bit and now it keeps flickering on and off.  My boss called and closed our shop so I don't have to worry about trying to get to work (wasn't going to try until later anyway) and my sons school closed yesterday afternoon for today.

We might as well have gotten nothing! We had thunderstorms at 11:30 last night and if we are lucky we got an inch of snow very disappointing

I don't know how much snow we have right now, but the power keeps going off. It's annoying!!!

The snow's done falling, but the wind is still going strong.  We've been very lucky that we haven't lost power (might have flickered at one point, but not bad enough to reset my clock radio).  We are not far from some areas of Des Moines that did lose power.  Last I heard on the tv was that we were almost at 12"...

Good luck with getting your car out.  Mine's block in the shed with a few feet of blown snow on the outside of it.
