Thanks ... yes the pantry is well stocked and there are plenty of camping supplies from our younger days. Lots of candles, lamps, heaters, and a coleman cooking stove. Been here before. Most everything around here is closed except Wal-Mart. "She who must be obeyed" will miss work today and possibly tomorrow as school is closed. As long as we have power the storm is more an inconvenience than a hardship.

Most of our ice is over.
Sleeting now and changing to snow. 16-20 inches possible on this side of St. Louis.
35mph winds expected later today.
White out conditions through Wednesday morning at least.
Stay in touch Iseeu if possible.
Good luck to both of us we may need it.
Correct. Woke up to 1" of freezing rain/ice pellets/sleet on the ground. Snowing in earnest now ... like 2" per hour with 20mph winds. Snow event should be over this afternoon, then sub-zero temps.
You take care ... moderation is the safe word when we get to our age. What is the point of shoveling snow today if the wind is just going to blow it back again? And Arctic temps are very hard on a person. Spring is only a few days away!
