    Looks like it will also go to our south. That's fine with me.

    I'm ready for everything but a power outage! Ironically, the transfer switch that's been backordered just showed up yesterday. If I go out, only thing I'll be missing is the 10ga to hook it up. But, w/ only 8-10 if I really need, I'll be able to get out no prob

    We are going to be too far north by about 30 miles. 60% chance of snow flurries here. Makes up for the mess we got this past fri/sat.

    We took care of the wood yesterday, I'm thinking this will be a heavy wet snow so if we get some strong gust we could lose power, all set for that.

    I finally broke down, we brought sugar maple & beech in.

    A couple of days ago I put the chains on the rhino, front & back tires.

    We should be fine, the roads will be a mess especially with the high wind gust they are predicting.

    Stay safe.
    We might get a little snow but most of it is going to the north of me.

    We were just upgraded from a Winter storm warning to a Blizzard Warning from 7 am-7 pm tomorrow. Calling for 8"-12" in my area.

    Plow is on the Quad. Half cord in the basement.... Ready :) (I hope)

    I put the plow on yesterday, so I'm thinking that means I won't need it ;)

    Unfortunately, I'll be headed to Lima and Van Wert about 2am Thursday. Supposed to end my day in Findlay. Should be interesting.

    Thanks! Luck will be it, too. I'm not concerned about MY abilities.

    Just hauled two weeks' worth of locust and maple into the basement......one weather guy says 8" plus, the weather channel says no more than an inch of snow (says it'll be mostly rain). I don't know who to believe, but I sure do like having all that wood in the basement. It's cold enough down there now that the spiders should be fairly dormant....I hope....

    You seem to be "Goldilocks" this year.
    Not to far North or South, "just right" to get missed by the big storms,
    so far ;)

    Snow & wind event south & east of Dennis.
    Rain on the coast.
    Sounds like preparations have been done well.
    Stay warm & dry :)
