    I'm hoping it tracks more to the South and misses us in the mid-thumb of Michigan.

    We'll be digging out too. Hope it's not too icy and the power goes out. We are ready for just about anything but it'll be nice not having to run the generator if we don't have to.
    Stay safe, plan ahead & pace yourself snow shoveling.

    We are excited here! We haven't had hardly snow here in my part of Michigan. At least not in one storm. The kids have no school today due to the end of the semester. Then Wednesday they are already scheduled for a late start . They do them about once a month instead of half days for teacher training sessions and meetings etc. We are hoping it will get called off entirely since that is when we are expecting the worst of it. Tuesday into Wednesday. I can however, do without ice.

    Yup, it's supposed to hit here too, up to 12" for us, 18" a little south of us.

    I'm going over my emergency supplies this morning. Looks like the radio battery is dead....

    Country Housewife, thanks for the reminder to check on available supplies for an emergency. They are calling for snow, ice, and rain here on top of the snow that is already here. Just seems like it is going to be a mess here.

    I'm kind of hoping we get slammed with this. We haven't gotten any of the storms so far

    Ahhhh, YankeeMom is my Kindred Snow spirit I see. One good snow wallop a year is fun I think. I did my running around today so tomorrow I just need to get the kids back and forth to school then we are hunkering down. DH will have to go to work still which I hate but he can take my car which is safer and has heat unlike his truck.

    Now they* are saying we may get up to 30" by the time the long storm is finally over. Joy, not. Not a snow princess here.


    * I was listening to the police scanner when I hear them reading this weather service bulletin over the air to inform their officers.

    OH WOWWW!! ok I will keep quiet about our ice-y sleet-y MESS that we are getting today. I'll keep quiet about our below zero temps that will supposedly hit tonight. Just don't give me that snow to shovel.

    (Loveland, CO) Here's a linky! Now that I check, it looks like its tapered off on extreme temperatures too, whew. http://www.weather.com/weather/today...nd+CO+USCO0246

    Sometimes they build it up as storm of the century and we don't get that much other times they say we'll only get a little and get hammered. Just have to prepare, wait and see & deal.

    Grrr...unfortunately I have to go to work no matter how flippin' much it snows. I'm the closest person in my department to the dealership, lucky me.

    We're expecting the "storm of the century" too.

    I'm a misplaced Southern Belle that got dropped into Canada - snow is not my thang.
