    We got about .25 or so of ice. Trees are sagging hard already. Supposed to get another .5 today and .25 tonight. Then the wind.

    I lost power from about 10P - 2A. I think that's just a small taste of what we're going to get.

    ah dang... I stayed home from work today for nothing. Got up at 4, saw 1/4" of ice and just went back to bed. But I knew I wasted a day off when my wife called me a feline and said she was going to work (school). When the schools down here don't cancel it means the roads are really good yet.

    Oh well... it won't hurt to stay home and rest and get some stuff done. maybe I'll dig the lanterns out to jinx the storm from dumping ice on us.

    Our schools are all closed trees are very heavy...Just a matter of time now! Another 3/4 inch of ice coming with 35-40 mph winds with some gusting up to 60mph. This will shut everything down unless they have an awesome gen-set! I have one but it darn sure not Awesome.

    Oh and the truck been running for 45min;s and still cant see out the windshield...........

    I was going to stay home as well. After listening to the forecast last night, it sounded like armegeddon. Got up this morning, no snow whatsoever and a just a little ice. Getting sick and tired of the "boy that cried wolf" weather channel. I'm sure it helps their ratings though and advertising. Liars.

    It won't be the first time the winch has saved my butt. Unless we get 8-10 inches of snow tonight I'll be back in early with pictures to follow, one topped off cherry and some dead standing.

    Yes, everytime I drive to my parents house I pass Wooster. I have family that live in Orrville. I am actually from the large city of Barberton.
