It is 51F. and a big thunderstorm with buckets of rain just went through. The rain was so loud I had to turn up the TV.

We had a bit of wind and rain last night. We had a little bit of rain this morning. It went up to 21C (70F) and it's currently 19C (66F)! It's the 30th of October. Back in the '80s I would have had snow tires on my car by now.

I heard on the radio that Beckley, WV, has a foot of snow on the ground and expecting another foot. Take care, Merlot.
Well Im all safe and sound, I live right outside of Beckley. I think we have about 22 inches but it's still snowing! So far my power is on but we aren't safe just yet. The nursing home where I work has no power so it will be rough the rest of the week. My water was out at 12 last night, back on now but solid brown. I have to make it to work tomorrow so taking PF's advice and packing the car up! Take care everyone!

Glad to hear you're safe - sorry about the water. My stepmother gave me this advice years ago when we lived in Michigan: Take a coffee can (or metal container of similar size) and put inside it a tealight and a book of matches. If you get stuck and/or run out of gas, light the candle and keep it in the coffee can. The metal will radiate heat into the car and keep it nice and warm.

We actually had to use this method driving to Florida at Christmastime one year. Crazy storm went all the way down to Jacksonville. The streets there were icy; we tried one hotel, which had people sleeping in the lobby, so we slept in the car, with the candle burning, though I don't think DH really slept much.

Take care.
