    So all the buses in my area have been canceled for school. I am keeping DD home because our ten min walk will become 20 and the last time we had freezing rain then snow I slipped and hurt my hip bad. Then DD fell and hurt her back. I did get a note from the school regarding DD being absent. I...

    We have had pretty much NO snow this winter. Temps in the 50's most of the time, etc. Tomorrow we are supposed to get 5-9 inches of snow! Whoo hoo! :cheergrl: They say it will be heavy, wet snow which may take down the power lines and my generator isn't working. But, I'm a country girl...

    Since a lot of us are going to, or are already getting hit, post some photos of the snow. Maybe put a yard stick in the deepest drift or how deep it is compared to a car, a dog or whatever. Got snow already? Post a picture of before the storm and after. Get those camera's out and be creative!!

    What do you do to prepare for it? Hopefully the power will stay on since the heat and stove is Electric but if it doesn't do you all have any suggestions for us? The only thing I know to do is pile on the blankets and huddle. It's cold so we can put the refrigerator food outside and it will stay...

    So the first snow fall is here. I think it was about 12 inches of snow. Hard to tell because of the wind. Apparently the roads are manageable around here since I will be going to the grocery store. Heck, cheese is on sale. I did shovel a small path from the steps to the parking lot. Luckily...
