For our friends in the path of the storm, please be carefull, it's shaping up to be a monster.  We're projected to get around 2 ft of snow over the next 36 hours but I don't have to go anywhere, be carefull out there and be safe.

Don, we should be just fine, the shovels are all warmed up and the snowblower is set to go, our heat is a ventless natural gas wall heater, it's not dependant on electricity, all we'll do is hunker down and wait it out, my concern is for the busnuts that are in the path of the storm, the advantage most busnuts have is if the electricity does go out, most of us have generators, just use them safely, it seems every year we hear about the guy that fires up the generator in the garage and then closes the door and goes to sleep for a really long time.

Yesterday they were predicting 5-8 inches here. I told them at work I wouldn't be in today or tomorrow. Today they're predicting 8-10 inches. It snowed all day and just started accumulating in the late afternoon... barely. Maybe we'll get dumped on and I won't have to go in Thursday or Friday! Telecommuting from home definitely has some advantages  Smiley

The storm is leaving here ( Colo. ) leaving behind about 3 inches of snow and the low tonite is expected to get to 10 below. The further northeast it goes the worst it gets. Botton the hatches.

Stay warm Wayne

I've got an idea, live in a warmer climate! I read about it and shiver, got too much southern blood in me I guess! Grin

Y'all have fun and stay warm!

It's only getting to 25 here tonight, a heat wave compared to some of you guys.

When libby is stronger, I'll be enjoying the warmer weather again too, this winter will be spent caring for her but watch out after that lol, meanwhile, we'll batten the hatches and watch the storm from the windows.

We had wind gusts that were reported to be up to 80 mph last night in Quarzsite. Just rocked us to sleep. Some stick and staples not so lucky.

Van,

25 in Vegas? That is unusual. Although I did live ther in 2004 when it dumped on the strip. That was kind of cool. I just saw it was snowing there off and on today, wow! Crazy weather.

It is still usually allot nicer weather there than here in OK. I can deal with 110 better than 30  Grin
