It's gonna be Mike. Looks like a bangah coming our way now. Two feet for me on the coast heah. Ayup. Fill up the jugs, batten down the hatches and ride her out. I just watched a documentary about the Greeley expedition to the arctic last night. I think we'll be ok. ;)


Hang on SZ, feed the stove and stay warm....keep us posted, don't make me come down there! :lol:

Bob,

I have all of my outdoor fans blowing your way. Maybe it will push the storm farther inland for you and the Greenville area. Friend of mine was supposed to take a bunch of guys riding this week around Moosehead. They had to go ice fishing instead due to no snow...... :mad:

They are calling for 30"+ in my area, which means the + for us as we get more then the surrounding towns all the time. Our little town doesn't get mentioned on the news but we always set records for snow fall. Good luck finding a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk today!!! With twin girls I keep 6 gallons in the basement at all times!! Everything is gassed up, plenty of coal and stew is cooking, let the snow fly!!

It is snowing pretty good, about 3" of POWDER so far. It is only 5 degrees outside, no wonder the snow is so fluffy...it will be a white-out when the wind picks up.

I hope everyone is prepared & stays safe during this bad boy storm. It's looking like we will have a "normal big snow", but certainly the wind will factor into it. Oddly, northern Maine won't get much at all....and the snowmobile trails need it.

The storm just left us. It rained all night and is heading North. Dumped 2" of rain on us. Glad it wasn't snow.
