Our weather conditions here in NoVA are nothing compared to some of the rest of you. Spiritboxer, good luck with the fruit stand. I went to the local megamart early this a.m. to pick up a few necessities and they were looking pretty lean. Doubt your local guy has a better delivery system, but I wish you all the best.

Temp has dropped considerably in the last 2 1/2 hours and the wind is blowing like a son of a gun. Looks as though Mother Nature is getting ready to have a hissy fit. Maybe the weatherman is going to be right this time.

If your going to get what we have then I'd advice you to go hit the store now if you need anything.

Thanks Sizz. Luckily I don't have to go anywhere. Until tomorrow when I have to be at work by 8 a.m. Hopefully all the roads will be salted and plowed by then. They're saying this is going to be the worst winter storm we've had in 14 years. It is coming down pretty hard now. Getting pretty windy as well. If anyone else in the midwest to northeast is out in this please be very careful as the traffic is pretty much at a standstill from the weather conditions.

Their shutting down counties around here I guess.....only allowed out for emergencies. I'm hoping they announce DH work is shut down too cause I certainly don't want him venturing out tomorrow.

We're only about 65 miles north of Katie...same weather here, except we're getting sleet and snow.

We were lucky today, the heavy snow went south. We just had some flurries. Its the darn wind that makes it miserable when you have to drive out on the highway.

We're expecting the big storm Wednesday and into Thursday, about 1 foot or more of snow. Lots of wind expected too. Can't complain since we really havent had much snow this winter.

Snow moved in around 2pm today with gusty winds. It's 11pm now and still snowing. Our temp right now is 5degrees. We live in the country and I'm hoping that we aren't drifted in tomorrow morning. This weather makes me want to move somewhere warm...and soon.

SNOW DAY !!!!!

RAGING BLIZZARD


WIND, ICE, SNOW

WILL MEASURE IN FEET NOT INCHES

REPEAT
SNOW DAY !!!



Tomorrow is going to be a lot like today Stirblue but just hang in there it's going to warm up a little by the end of the week. You was up to your waist in a snow drift in your front door this morning. That pushed off pretty easy when you body slammed the door a few times. Your son went to a friend's house and built a cool snow fort. You hung his wet things to dry, made cocoa and a hot pizza. You went on DC and found out that your jeans were still in style.

Yeah, tomorrow is going to be a lot like today Stirblue ..... peek out from under the covers, bright and early. Snow Days are just little umm unexpected holidays.
