    The big snow storm is headed our way....5-8" of snow mixed in with some sleet. How is everyone preparing and what do you plan to do once all the snow comes? I'm actually about to head to work where they will probably keep me captive until the very last minute!! No one cares about our safety when its treacherous outside, they just want to continue business as usual. Hopefully they will let us out a little early but I'm not holding my breath!!!

    Afterwards when I get home and if its not too dark out, I will take my daughter outside to play in the snow, which she loves. But I love nothing more than staying in watching movies with my DH while I watch the snow fall through our window. I love winter!! I dont like shoveling but thats a different story...LOL

      We were supposed to get some snow here (south jersey) but right now its just raining. I think we'll just get frozen rain which sucks too. Thankfully i only live about 2 miles from my work. maybe the weather will get me out of having to go to dh's friends basketball game.

        We are pretty much home bound right now. I live in NW Ohio and we have about 1/4 inch of ice covering everything. I really don't mind except our groceries are low but I will throw something together. We are really lucky right now cause half our town is without power! I am have been making sure i am getting everything done this morning that I need the electric for just incase!!! We'll prolly spend the rest of the day sitting around watching movies or playing Electronic Monopoly.

          Once I heard about the weather I made the decision to work from home today. So I will fire up the laptop and then power down later and get some chores done. I got up at 6 am to get some groceries from Shoprite, so given that it will be a snuggly evening.

          I am on a strict diet so there goes the movies and a snack idea .

            It's snowing like crazy! I made it into work but my boss told me to go home early later on. The office is like a ghost town today, I think a lot of people stayed home. I want to stay home tonight and watch Christmas movies!

              Wow, do you think you will have a white Christmas?

              My DH and I are flying into Philly on Christmas Day. I wonder if it will snow? I have been there for Christmas the last three years and so far no snow. I want it to snow!!

                We've had about a foot of snow on the ground for a few weeks now, with the big loads being dumped last Tuesday (Dec 9) and this past Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

                There have been weather warnings for the past two days, but it's looking like the worst of it may be missing us.

                Keep warm and safe everyone, it's so not fun trying to get around with all that slippery stuff.

                  I think we are ready.... The storm is supposed to reach us in the next few hrs and then follow through the night into tomorrow afternoon... they are saying anywhere from 12 to 18 inches of snow for my neck of the woods. With the Ice Storm we had lastweek and no power till Tuesday ... the generator is up and ready to be turned on.. food is the best is can be since everything we bad from the last storm. The first part is super fluffy and then the tail end is slush/ice junk... not looking forward to it... espec with the devistation from lastweel... Let's all hope we will be ok!
