    Lightbulb Keep your solar lights in the house and charged up if you are in the path of the new

    Keep your solar lights in the house and charged up if you are in the path of the new mega storm - due here on Sat night into Sunday - lots of ice expected. I have 4 of my solar lights sitting in my windowsill - getting charged up - hopefully our power will not go out - but the weathermen are warning us that might happen.

    I keep reading about this and rejoicing thankfully that THIS TIME we in central VA are not in line for it.
    My thought are for those, like you, who are; the predictions are horrible and worrisome. Please be safe!

    I went to the grocery today, we live 10 miles out of town on winding curvy roads with no shoulder, plus the main road to town is flooded and we can't get through. Have to take the ridge road, when the water is up. This will only make things worse, but we are ready for it.

    Lots of snow predicted here for Sun. PM into Monday. Oh well. Hopefully I can get in some sewing in between loads of laundry. For all those in the path...stay safe and warm. Stay off the roads if you possibly can.

    I'm in western KY where we are being warned of an ice situation of up to 1/2 inch. Husband's family is in northern MO where they're talking 12+ inches of snow. Mother Nature can have this last fling, but after this one, she'd better skedaddle outta here! Tired of winter!!!

    We're suppose to only get 4 or 5 inches from the coming storm, most of it will be south of us. Sorry Jackie, but it looks like you're going to get the worst of it down there.

    Spoken like someone used to snow! "only 4-5 inches". That's like a dusting here! LOL! Hope everyone in the path of the storm stays safe and warm!

    The local weatherman is predicting mainly sleet beginning Saturday night thru Sunday for my area. But just in case it is more freezing rain than sleet and the power goes out, I have filled milk jugs with water (got to have a working toilet) and am cooking a roast, stew and meatloaf that can be warmed on top of the fireplace insert. DH has plenty of firewood on hand. We have plenty of lamp oil and new wicks for the oil lamps (3 that belonged to DH's grandmother) Not worried but are prepared to be comfortable and occupied with hand sewing and reading. We'll be resting up for spring lawn work!!!

    We got about an inch last night and are predicted to get another 4 or 5 today. We have a big fundraiser tonight for Assault and Abuse services. Snow was supposed to come later, but it is 1 pm and snowing like mad. I think we should compile a cookbook of roast groundhog recipes.

    I think I'll pass on the groundhog recipes--and go turn my TV on. I didn't realize we are in line for another round of winter. UGHHHHHHH. I am like a lot of you on this board--enough already--it is time for some pretty days (warm days). I have set myself up to sew in my bedroom this past week because I won't make that trek out to my sewing room when it is cold and slippery outside. I have done a lot of reading this winter.
    Make every day count for something!

    Of course I had to turn News 12 on to see what we are up to.. We are near JFK,, The last ones were horrible for the dogs.. Socrates is getting used to his boots, and jacket.. We still have mountains of snow piled up.. The good part is I have become a slug, and am spending quality time behind my sewing machine..

    I am in north Texas, jut 30 miles from the Oklahoma state line. It was a beautiful 68 degrees here both yesterday and today, but the prediction is for sleet tomorrow, beginning about 11 a.m. and night time lows of 12 to 15 degrees.
    Then it will be over except for the possibility of tornadoes as the weather gets warmer. Phooey, looey! froggyintexas

    We're right on the border of the line between 3-6" and 6-9". I hope we get the 3.

    Great idea to be prepared but I do hope it isn't needed. Stay warm. We are dropping 20 degrees in the am in Texas to freezing rain by afternoon. UGH.

    My thoughts and good wishes go out to those facing yet another storm. Hopefully all are prepared.

    In west central Missouri, this Sunday morning it looks like frosting on everything. It is 5 degrees, -11 wind chill. They were calling for an inch of sleet and then 4-8 inches of snow on Sunday. If power stays on, a great day of sewing and reading ahead. Everyone , stay safe where ever you are.

    I'm right after you in Louisville! Thank God in 2009 we bought a stand alone generator after being left without power for 8 days in January/February. It was expensive, but worth it. So if the power goes out, we are fine. The only thing we won't be able to use is the microwave. We have a gas stove so that's not an issue.
