Oh, great! It's stopped doing just about everything here. Had to lose a day of work and now will have to go in tomorrow when it will be even nastier outside.

We're expecting a pretty bad snow storm to hit us. They're calling for 7-14 inches today and another 4-8 tomorrow. It's snowing now but nothing drastic at the meoment. Usually alot of these storms just barely pass us but I'm afraid there's no getting out of this one.

Wow Uncle Bob... our saying is " Give it a minute and it'll change. "

Snow

This morning it was raining, turned to sleet, now it is snowing and temperature dropping and it isn't even 3 in afternoon yet. I thought in afternoon temperature would be warmer. No. I would like to know I have a 75ft driveway to shovel. Normally, I wait till it quits snowing but it hasn't stopped. Do you think waiting till it stops is good idea or would you shovel some of it now even though it still snowing? My neighbors just drive over it and don't shovel. I am lucky to have a hill on my driveway and hard to get up. Right now I am alone and I sure don't want to hear any questions about why I didn't do something? If you could give me your opinion I would appreicate it. Thanks for understanding.

I think your directly east of me and if so Middie....hang on you got a doozy coming your way. I thought ours was slacking off some but its picking up speed....the snow is really coming down and the wind is picking up more. If your going to get what we have then I'd advice you to go hit the store now if you need anything.

I do not miss the hassle of snow. I used to love the first beautiful foot but then it turned into a pita.

I think we hit 65 today which is warm for this area in February but I'm not complaining. I have the windows and doors open but I'm wearing a sweater...now that the rain has begun, it's getting cooler.

we just had a guy get stuck in our front yard.....I'm sure I won't think its funny come spring and I have to fill in the ruts..... but I have to admit it was fun helping him and DH get him out. I haven't played in the snow in a long time. Just wished I had some snow boots .

It's 26 degrees and we're expecting a nor'easter in a few hours. Shopped for provisions this morning, lamb chops and applesauce, so I'm prepared. Heh, there's a 24 hour fruit stand right around the corner so it's not like I'm toughing anything out.......
