Today is December 21st, it's the first official day of winter.
But the weather was not looking at the calendar.
The season's first blizzard hit the middle western U.S. earlier this week.
It was headed and expected to move into New England today.
Tens of thousands of people lost power.
The storm also made driving pretty dangerous as you might expect in some areas.
Nearly 100 accidents were reported by late Wednesday morning including a 30-car pileup on one Iowa highway.
And an officer said the snow was blowing around so badly.
The drivers could only see about five feets in front of their cars.
Blizzard warnings were up yesterday in Iowa, also in parts of Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin.
Parts of Wisconsin had already seen up to 7 inches of snow by yesterday morning.
Predictions said another foot could be on the way.
Are you've heard us talk a lot about the fiscal cliff, it's a series of automatic government spending cuts and tax increases that scheduled to take place at the beginning of the year.
Now President Obama and Congress can avoid this cliff by coming up with a compromise, a plan to lower the country's debt.
The President and Republican leaders are both offered some proposals on how to do this.
When we made this show Thursday evening, there wasn't a deal.
Members of the House and Senate say they stay in Washington to keep working on it.
The deadline for a deal is January 1st.
