    We're "battening down the hatches" here, too. We'll be fine, but it will be a huge pain to get the livestock chores done in an ice storm. It's so beautiful here today (50's!) that it's hard to imagine ice and cold in just two days. Sigh...

    Were you affected by the ice storm this past January? Our grid power was down 10 days, and our baby was 3 weeks old. Hopefully, this storm will be nothing like that one.

    Be safe and warm!

    We may also get hit on Saturday with an Ice Storm.
    I do not mind snow or rain, but I really dislike ice. Ice storms are just too destructive.

    Ya'all stay warm, dry and safe! I much prefer snow to the nasty freezing rain/ice, I also hate doing chores in it, ugh.

    We'll keep you all in our thoughts, keep us updated as you can

    I've been keeping my eye on it. My family is all in Omaha or just inside of Washington county near Bennington. Sounds like its going to be pretty icy! Stay in and stay safe.

    We're supposed to get rain/ice/sleet/snow on Sunday. Not looking forward to it.

    I guess I should get to the store tomorrow for a couple of things we are running low on. But I'm still waiting for the Lake Effect Snow they've been talking about for the last two days...all we've had is a dusting.

    Make sure your pantry is full and you are warm and dry.
