I just had a Christmas phone call from a friend in Michigan, who said his wife hates winter.
Since early this morning, he said, the snow has been falling heavily and it is now almost waist high.
The temperature is dropping below zero and the north wind is increasing as well.
His wife has done nothing all morning, but look through the kitchen window.
He added that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her indoors.
