I just came back in from running the van to de ice. Keep up with it and it is easier than all at once.

I just came in and crawled in the oven for a few minutes to warm up.

The broiler works great!

We started on sleet about 8am and it is trying to switch to snow slowly. A few flakes mixed in with the sleet now.

M'Lady ... for me one tornado in my life is one too many. Here's hoping the storms pass you by!

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.

Your south of I-44 I beleive so more ice is expected. Bummer.

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.

Mike
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!

Cheers!

Thank you Joan!

It is hard to tell how much snow actually fell, not 20" around here for sure, because the wind is blowing it into drifts. Temps are falling but have not lost power, so all is good here!

Brrrrrrrrrrr!!!

So far today all sleet. About 2 inches. Snow is going to start any time.

Thanks for sleet instead of more freezing rain.

We only lost power for about five minutes. As soon as I got the hard wire phone hooked up to report the outage the power came back on.
I should have known that would happen. LOL

So far so good or at least not real bad.

Tomorrow morning we could receive up to 1" of ice and then 20" of snow. Following that the temp is expected to fall to -10F. Wind chill index to -25F. If wet snow and ice collect on the trees and power lines we could be without power for days just like '07 and '08.

Here is hoping for the best ... while preparing for the worst!

Robert I am sure thinking of you. That is brutal. Glad it is not me! It was 78 F here today.
