    It's headin our way...Supposed to start snowing tonite at 6PM & continuing on & off for 36 hours. We're predicted to get 6 - 10" with freezing rain likely somewhere in the middle. Tomorrow morning will be a mess & will once again be that learning curve for all those drivers that refuse to obey the speed limits on DRY roads..."Geez I don't know what happened...I couldn't steer & I had my foot on the brakes & I couldn't stop either..." I'm ready...The snow blower is gassed & the 4WD Dakota will try to get us to work...Maybe not on time, but we should make it...

    It looks like Arkansas got hammered. Do you still have power?

    Be careful out there folks. High winds, white out conditions are not to be fooled with. Freezing rain on the warmer edges is sure to bring limbs down. Stay indoors until it passes and go very carefully afterward.

    It's been snowing heavy here about an hour but it's suppose to turn to an icy mix then rain later on. It's hovering around 30 degrees so who knows. Be safe everyone!

    That looks like a scene from "The Day the Snow Throwers Took Over". It was a terrible movie.

    Will be firing up the plow tonight.. and loading the stove with hop hornbeam.

    I cant WAIT to get out of work soon....first we'll be getting the plow on the truck ..then, I'll be digging the ol' Chaparral SSX 340 out as soon as I get home, putting some fresh gas in her, and HOPEFULLY be zipping he across the field before supper.

    As to the stove, locust and maple mix........it'll be ALL locust for the overnighters for the next week or so......

    BRING ON THE SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    bah, I'm thinkin I'll see 3" at best....ye olde "bread and milk scare" in my opinion. My co-workers are all running around like they're on fire talkin about 18".
    I could go for some deep stuff....I haven't been sledding at all this winter. Hope all are using their safety-ness. I'll be out on the roads this evening making sure none of you's is out on the roads....

    Well we are getting snow finally and it is not much but the wind is defiantly getting worse. We lost the darn chimney cap and I AM NOT going up there to put it back today I might land in the next county.

    Only 1 of those is Not For Sale. ;)

    EDIT: Looking at the radar, it says it should have been snowing here an hour ago. I'm looking out the window and I gotta beg to differ.
