      • 4-8 inches of the light fluffy stuff over the next 2 days. And then high winds wednesday.

        • Snow is nothing, ice is scary stuff. Not only do you have to worry about dying on the roads, but trees and powerlines can easily snap with all of that weight.

          They are calling for some serious amounts of ice up there for some of you. An inch of ice will likely render people without power for weeks due to all of the downed power lines.

          • I am going to pick up firewood and a flashlight after work. I hate winter. And I am probably a sucker for buying into the media hype for this storm. But worst case scenario of a week without power is a pretty bad case.

            • We're set to get 15 inches of snow over here, with some ice pellets as well. It will be an interesting Tuesday and Wednesday, to say the least.

                In this case, no you aren't a sucker, this storm is going to be big and powerful. A lot of times the Weather Channel and the main media sources will overblow storms (usually at the beginning of winter, to kick start people's awareness of the dangers of winter driving, but this is going to affect over 100 million people (and that's just the winter aspect of it), many of whom will see huge accumulations of snow an/or ice. Any places that get over half an inch of ice are in for trouble, but the areas looking at 1" are really vulnerable. Normally no matter how bad a storm is I say all you really need to do is make sure you have food for 3-4 days and your good, but with storms that have these types of ice accumulations, it pays to be the "overprepared" person with the generator and a gas stove, just to be safe.

                To clarify, I'm not saying everyone should panic, or even expect that stupid ****, but if you are in a place expected to get the worst of the ice accumulations, prepare yourself if you haven't already. Places near Chicago expecting two feet of snow are better off than the people getting half an inch of ice.

                  • supposed to get between 6-10 inches here

                    Comment


                    • Lot of snow headed this way too supposedly. Stocking up on firewood as well, brought in four loads of the stuff for the next few days and might go out to split some more logs just to be careful.

                        That's what she said. Sorry, couldn't help it.

                        Freezing rain is expected to be here by the end of the week. Yay.

                        • Freezing rain is the worst. Snow it's ok usually dumb drives just get stuck or spin out. Ice though idiots think 4WD somehow does something with ice as they glide by crashing into walls. Not to mention the loss of power with freezing rain and down power lines.

                              • Yup, I'm not happy about the ice part either. Lost power for over a day earlier this month too and would prefer not to deal with it again.
