    Why we still have power, let's entertain each other.

    Ice outside, more coming this afternoon.

    What's it like where you are?

    Whatcha doing?

    I'm just outside of Boston and it's snowing ... a lot! It has been since about 8:00 this morning. Reading the latest reports, snow totals have been increased for today's storm. What the hell that means for tomorrow is beyond me, but I'm happy to say that I will be spending tomorrow's storm in the comfort of my home. And I do believe some baking is in order.

    I live in a condo complex, I was awoken by my neighbors scraping the ice off their cars.
    They were out there forever it seemed, a ton of ice with more coming this afternoon.

    The news said an inch of ice (or is it 2?) is like having 500 pounds on the powerlines. :eek:

    We got about 3" of snow overnight, then a break, now we're having sleet and freezing rain a lot earlier than initially thought. But it's only a little off and on so far, the storm hasn't even really gotten here yet.

    Just got back from a trip to the store on foot and we're ready for anything!

    Good deal on the power, EZ. Hopefully it stays on!
