    Snow on its way

    I'm running around town finishing shopping. I plan to sew tomorrow. Snows will be here tonight. I'll put on a pot of stew or chili in the morning and retire to the sewing room for a day of fun.

    Sounds like a good plan. We are expecting the snow too. Snow is a four-letter word, you know!

    We had a dusting the past few days. Less than an inch of that stuff. I love when it snows, I can stand outside (briefly) and is so peaceful you can almost hear the snowflakes landing.

    I'm NOT ready for snow.

    It's supposed to be near 80 today. It's 76 on my front porch now. But, temp is dropping into upper 40s/lower 50s tomorrow and at least through the weekend.

    Our house is ready...
    the hoses are put up
    the dog's water buckets are plugged in
    the dog's heater (those ones that look like the old radiator heaters but filled with oil)
    the trucks have antifreeze and de-icer in the windshield washer container
    And the survival packs are stowed away in the trucks.
    propane bottles and heaters are in the garage along with a propane stove.
    and most important a small generator is on standby

    We are having low 80s temps, suppose to cool off Friday, high low 50s. Hard telling if or when we will get snow. Sometimes we just get ice around the end of the year or snow depending on the temps. Snow is much better than ice. I need to try out the 4WD on my new truck. I wouldn't be without it after having two others. If I only use it once it is worth all the payments.

    We are way to warm in NY.. Would give anything for a bit of snow.. I presume you are in the mountains.. I've been skiing in CO many times, and it amazes me how efficient they are at cleaning the snow.. CO is my favorite for skiing..

    Instead of snow we have a hurricane skirting the state!

    Yeah but you aren't going to get it nearly as bad as the northeast. They're talking "Storm of the Century" status if things come together just right.

    It's not quite 9 PM here and 77 degrees. Tonight's low is expected to be 66. High tomorrow is expected to be 84.

    It is 70 degrees right now, but temperatures are dropping 30 degrees here tomorrow, but no snow luckily. I would love to be able to sew all day long tomorrow, though.

    Sounds like a good plan!!! It is 10:30 here and we have about 2" on the grass right now. I heard on the news you are getting it down your way too. I am putting the crock pot on in the morning, finishing my homework for tax class, and then hopefully a nice quiet day of quilting!

    We'll be heading to Aurora CO for Christmas with our DS and 2 DGDs. Hope there is lots of snow. We both love snow DH having been raised in upstate NY and me having spent a good part of my youth in Alaska. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

    HOLY COW! I live in Michigan and it is still 75 degrees out there today. I still have lawn furniture sitting outside and a TON of plants on the porch., hoses on the ground (disconnected though). Survival Packs??? Guess I know what I am doing on my day off.
    Didn't think that the Pacific Northwest gets weather that you had to prepare for...thought it was pretty temperate---unless you are in Canada.
    You are making me feel guilty!

    When do I ever get to enjoy a "day of quilting?" With teenagers, there is always something to do along with that part-time job (soccer game tonight and TaeKwonDo). I suspect that the neighbors bring their laundry over during the night...has to be!

    Oh, the weather people get so excited when bad weather is maybe coming! May they all be disappointed!

    AS a person who lives on the border of CT in MA, I am not anticipating "the storm of the century". The weather forecasters LIVE to cause panic in people over things that MOST of the time don't happen. It amazes me that there is this industry where they can be wrong MORE than half the time and still have a job!

    That said......although I don't panic about it - the generator is fueled up and tested, plenty of wood for the furnace, plenty of food in the freezer, and the animals all have their appointed places prepared. No reason not to be prepared for Mother Nature to have a hissy fit.

    Bring it on!

    Hang on....I heard this morning that Storm "Sandy" might turn into a nor-eastern. Is that the right word? A cold storm.
