    They are calling for 4 inches up to 14 inches here over the next 24 hours! You can have the snow! ( and keep the ice).
    Hope your power stays on and you have lots and lots of fabric so you can quilt!

    It's headed our way too. Calling for 13+ snow in NC mountains, 6+ snow in foothills and ice in piedmont. You can guess from my screen name where I live. Would MUCH rather have the snow than ice!! Stay safe & warm.

    Headed for us for sure this time, R. We have plenty of wood stacked up for the fire insert, and lots of soup to warm on top of it, also grill outside to cook of if we have to. It we get what they are calling for, will loose power for sure. I guess our trip to Statesville Saturday is off for sure :roll: :roll: Also have blankets ready to seal off the Den , which is where we live when the power goes. Why can't we just get a few inches of snow???

    I would MUCH rather have the snow. We have just a little wood, (used most of it the 2 weeks it stayed below freezing). If power goes, we have already discussed going to my dads (have gen. hooked to house) or even hooking small gen to our camper. It has gas heat and cooking and gen. will run everything.

    You're right "C" ~ looks like the show will be off my plans.

    Ice is beautiful but not fun. Just finished putting in a whole house generator yesterday, so we will be all set if we loose power. It somes on automatically. Was quite pricey, but we have parrots and we are OLD so want to keep warm! LOL

    That sure is beautiful - no fun to get around in though.
    Funny how all you south of here are getting ice & snow - and up here in WI we haven't had snow for about a month! Plowing helps get us through the winter, so feel free to send some up this way! :lol:

    Oh my. It's going to miss us here, thank goodness. Once in the mid-60s we had a big ice storm (I was a kid who got out of school for a week so it was fun) and a big one in the late 70s where there were some people without power for 3 weeks. Hope none of you have extended power outages. That's just not fun after the first hour.

    It's gorgeous. It would be even more beautiful if there had already been snow on the ground. How I miss that kind of weather!

    Marsye, you take great photos.

    It is beautiful! But somehow I am glad that I am in Southern California and it will be 70 today.

    Well, it has warmed up to 11degrees...we will get a bit of lake effect snow tonight and tomorrow...
    Keep warm and safe, to all my friends in Tenn., NorthCarolina, and all the other areas that are going to be hit with this nasty storm...
    Ninnie, you can always send Mortimer out for more wood....

    Oh, I hate ice that knocks out power and makes it difficult to drive. Snow is much more forgiving.

    Brrr. We are expecting 3-6 inches of snow here tom. Don't think we'll get it tho.
    DS just called from Kentucky and he has maybe a half inch of snow, but ice underneath. Makes him a little jittery with his 18-wheeler and the ding-a-ling 4-wheelers. He's on his way to Alabama. Pray for safe trip.

    Oh that's pretty! Weirdest winter here....last year no electricity for 6 days and several feet of snow. This year we had just a skiff at Christmas and lately it has been near 50 degrees. The gravel road is so muddy and so is my car!

    I know how you feel!! We had an ice storm that started yesterday and ended today, but now it's snowing on top of all that ice. Haven't been outside since I made it home yesterday.

    And MORE ice
