    Expecting an ice storm..

    Lots of snow on the ground, expecting freezing rain later tonight and tomorrow. This is the main thing we prep for and experience almost every year.
    Got the house ready and re-checked everything, shoveled and sprinkled sea salt, going out to buy fresh fruit and veggies, will probably be home for a few days.

    Hope everyone is doing well today

    Sure hope you don't loose electricity. Had seen those power lines loaded down with ice when I was younger. But that is why I don't live there.

    We have snow and a little ice here. I was listening to my radio scanner before I went out today. There was an ambulance driver and a dispatcher talking, the ambulance driver didn't know where he was going. Refused one call because he didn't know where it was, then the dispatcher is giving directions to a different call. Are you familiar with this area? No. OK do you know where this restaurant is? No. It was a car into a tree. I mean jeez, buy a GPS and program in directions back to NYC.

    But anyway, just went out and got some anti freeze and some washer fluid for cold weather.

    Have fun stay safe.

    Thanks guys, good to be back Went downhill skiing and almost killed a guy for crushing into my ribs on his stupid snowboard.. I'm ok but it's a bit hard to breathe and I have to miss a few sword-fighting classes, which makes me livid

    I'm definitely worried about power lines falling but we're all safe and ready!

    I was wondering where you were. I thought maybe you were recovering from your New Years party

    Stay safe and warm.

    are having it right now. Had some friends coming out. all but 1 cancelled. the one that arrived said it was bad and only stayed a few minutes before heading home. I already went out and lifted the wipers on both vehicles.

    I need to get in a little more wood...have some hot chocolate and relax...
