The National Weather Service just drastically changed our forecast. Instead of 8 inches of snow, we now are forecast 1-2. Now, also, depending on where in the area you are located 0.1 to 0.5 inches of FREEZING RAIN. A half inch of freezing rain is going to put a serious hurt on the tree limbs and power lines. Charging the battery that starts the generator now, just in case :shock:

Oh Man! They say just snow for us. I'd rather the snow than more ice.

Stay safe, OK?

Ditto here to the east of ya !

Gotta get up at 4 am to make sure the girl friend can get out the driveway to work. She's a nurse, so no snow days off - just 4w drive, good tires, and prayer. :roll:

The Oct. storm we had a few yrs back, put a serious hurtin' on our trees, and knocked out our power for almost a week. Been in my house for 25 yrs and never seen anything like it. I hope todays mess doesn't do anything as severe. I called in a personal day, just cause there's no work in my dept. Don't want to be on the icy roads with the morons. Good luck all.

Still have power. I really wish I had installed that manual transfer switch for the generator. We'll have heat but not much else if the power goes out. Filled the tub with water and a bunch of big coolers. We have a well pump that is not currently wired for generator power :(
