    Taking pre-orders for snowballs!

    OMG! They are calling for up to 24 inches of snow for us between Monday afternoon and Wednesday AM.

    Anyone what me to send some snowballs their way??

    Thank goodness I don't have to go to work - out with bad knee, but I don't want all that snow. It always leads to power outages, deaths from accidents and from snow removal.

    Hope everyone in the northeast is ready for this storm. Guess I better bring the shovel into the house! Thank goodness for snow blowers and generators!

    So sorry. We had two inches in So CA the last day of December 2014 and it was total chaos here because we hardly EVER have snow. Took over three days for it to melt away. I guess we got the snow instead of Las Vegas.

    We would GLADLY accept snowballs, or rain, we haven't had any decent amount of snow since '08 and virtually no rain this winter, plus the winter has been 10-25 degrees warmer than normal.

    YES!! Believe it or not, I miss the snow. Will be in the 60's this week. I want to go home. All I need is hot chocolate, and a quilt.

    I don't mind the snow - I just don't like more than about 4 inches at a time! I am still hoping that the forecast is wrong!

    Thanks, but we have our own! Not that much, but we got about 6" this week. Sunshine today and warmer so it's melting pretty quickly.

    that storm sounds ominous!! I hope everyone stays safe and warm as possible. when i first moved to Colorado we got 3 feet of snow. Took 3 days to shovel it all off the driveway for us both! (())

    the next two days here are to be in the mid 60's and then go down again. odd weather!

    make sure to put your freezers on high. in case we lose electricity it will take longer for the freezer to defrost. happy quilting.

    Minnesota is very far behind in snowfall this winter. But, that's ok - you can keep it. Just stay safe, help your neighbor, if possible and enjoy the beauty of the newly fallen stuff.

    Yes, the latest 'storm of the century'. Although I think we're going to get a pretty good dose here in central NJ as well. I think we're in the 20+ inch range currently. We have a generator handy; food in the house; plenty of sewing for me to do while hubs is working his butt off for the next 3 days. We had about 6" on Sat. Just grateful I have nowhere other than home to be. But I did spend many a year traveling in this stuff. Not fun. Makes me appreciate being able to be home.

    You could be walloped up there! We're in Maryland and expect 6-8" in our county. I like snow unless we lose power. I plan to stay in, quilt, and play Monopoly with my son .

    I was going to say the same thing!! (Have to admit that I do love the snow though...wouldn't mind a nice new covering!!)

    I have a half day today and then who knows when we will be back. I hope that we don't lose power so I can spend the day sewing. I have 4 ufo's lined up to finish for a challenge at my quilt shop.

    SO is watching one of the morning shows and they are talking about this storm and all the mess it's going to be. Airlines are all ready cancelling flights to and from the area. Your storm passed thru our area (Northern Ind) yesterday afternoon and evening, but we only got a couple of inches from it. Our main problem is just going to be some blowing and drifting. Sorry we couldn't be more help for you, so stay warm and safe.

    This is really going to be a terrible storm here in New England. I just finished shoveling the 4 inches we had on Saturday and my back is aching. Now to shovel 24 + inches will not be fun :-(

    So far this year, we have had only a trace of snow here. We usually get some snow, but not that much. Here when we get 3-4 inches they close schools. When we get 20+ they close everything. In fact we are in fire warnings because it is so dry.

    My BIL is on his way to us from PA and stopping at all his friends and relatives. He escaped just in time to beat the worst of the storm. From news reports, it sounds like a very bad storm. Hope all QB members stay safe and warm. Today at 9AM it was 59 degrees, but with a stiff wind from the north, it felt way colder. I can handle that, but snow...not anymore, thanks be! And no need to send any snowballs, but thanks for the offer!!

    Hi, there - I was just going to say that it is supposed to go up to 42* today- it is thawing all over the place - and it is supposed to be the coldest time of the year around here - and we have the Winter Carnival going on - Ice sculpture melting as we speak.


    You guys out east - take care, be safe -
