    it hit us about 4:40...coming down hard....over an inch on the ground now....so that is less than an hour...but this is just the foreshadowing...they say tomorrow will bring the major part of the snow....12 inches tonight and another 18 inches tomorrow....

    Snow is coming down hard here. They keep updating the prediction so I don't know what we will get.

    I learned a little last year. While I was away working for most of the aftermath of the ice storm, I was here two days. On the way in, no one would sell me any water and I didn't have a lot of food, nor did I have a kerosene heater.

    This year I have all of that. Food, water, kerosene, etc.

    If it's just snow we probably won't lose power, but my friends keep telling me to get a whole house natural or propane generator and put it on a transfer switch. I don't know how many kinds of miserable I will have to be before I do that, though.

    It's a nice town, Bones, what big city are you close to?

    Stay safe and warm this weekend, let your hubby and son do the shoveling. it's very cold here right now and I am going out to meet my family for breakfast but later, I'll find things to do inside.
