They are saying that starting tonight here where I live we will begin to get it...

The worst of it arrives tomorrow afternoon/evening and lasts til Thurs morning.

I wouldn't mind the snow that much, but they are saying we could also get an icestorm with it and are telling people to prepare in the event the electric goes out.

It started snowing overnight, they said a blizzard warning starts here at 1pm today...

My son worked at the grocery store til 10pm last night, when he got home he said that it was nuts! They had sold out of ground beef by 4pm, all the bread was gone, and when there was 1 gallon of milk left in the dairy shelf 2 people were fighting over it, lol.

We're supposed to get about a foot in Toronto starting this evening. It will be the worst storm in over a decade - I believe since our mayor called in the Army.

If what I'm reading is right, you're much worse off in Cincy since there will be freezing rain mixed in with it.

i lived in Hamilton until about 8 months ago and it was amazing how 5 miles down the road they'd get hammered and hamilton would get nothing. Now I'm in Toronto and every time there's a storm warning it turns out to be nothing here but terrible storms just down the road. i wonder if this will be the same.

Mass power outages expected here.
15,000 wi/out power from last nights dusting. Tonight, the additional ice on power lines will over load them.

The inconvience turns serious when it takes days to correct instead of hours.

Good luck gang!

You'll be fine ClevFan, just don't go anywhere and stay bundled-up in front of the tv watchin NFL Tv

where i lived up here in the mountains of washington, 18" overnight was common during the winter. i'd shovel away the snow blocking my Scout and go into town, then the next morning it would be an instant replay with more snow over the bumper and -10° temps. just another day

luckily, we aint gettin hit with it this time up here, just cold temps but no wind/snow, actually it's sunny right now with clear skies

enjoy kiddo!

BRING IT!!!!!!!!

i'll be glad when it's passed through lol.


i've never subscribed to the ''global warming'' theories, i'm in the 30
year cycles camp, we're at the end of the warming trend, be prepared
for this type of thing to repeat the next 3 decades, think i'll have to
look at relocating somewhere, this time for sure! the last time i was
leaning to relocating, it actually was the beginning of mild winters,
around the early 80's. the winter of '83 comes to mind, christmas
came in at 25 degrees... okay, i'm staying lol.

here we are almost 30 years later, not sure if i want to look ahead
to a repeat, especially the 70's ice storms and 4 ft snowdrifts, ''ice
box'' freezing winters...


cheers.

I never use my gas fireplace, it's on the main level and tricks the thermostat into thinking everything is warm and toasty, so it doesn't kick the heat on for the basement. Consequently the basement freezes.

However, when the couple times in the dead of winter, when the furnace went out, it was sure nice to have a backup!

Yeah, when I was growing up in the late 70's and early 80's, everyone just talked about "getting out of here" after they graduated. Winters started in late November and ran into April. It wasn't unusual to get hit hard with snow in April, and even an occasional May storm. Winters were much colder than the 90's, and heavier accumulations of snow. We had 3 boys in my family and we were my parents' human snow blowers. Seems like the snow was always a foot or two deep in the driveway (we had a tuck under garage, so the wind filled her up). I remember a winter in the mid 80's, that had 18 consecutive days with a high BELOW ZERO. Talk about crabby people. Population growth was fairly stagnant, because everyone here wanted out, and anyone transferring here couldn't stand it.

Then we went from about '92 through a couple years ago, with about 15 years of mild winters. We often didn't get hit with any real accumulation or severe cold until a couple days before christmas. There were a number of Decembers where you could still be raking leaves. There was at least 10 years in a row that we got a February thaw. The outdoor boot hockey teams and broomball teams I played on, had to have their "end" of the season playoffs, in the "MIDDLE" of the season to avoid getting melted out. Between having basically 3 month winters, the low interest rates, and the gov't bringing in 100,000 immigrants (hmong, Somalian, etc) our population exploded.

Now we seem to be swinging back to the 70's. I guess we went back to bell-bottoms we may as well go back to snow drifts, and below zero temps. Last year was a really warm march, I don't think we got any snow in March, and she was 70 degrees by the end, and stayed nice all the way through summer. I don't think we've had a March like that since the drought of '88.

But this winter has been brutal. I bought my house in 99, and haven't had the urge to buy a snow blower. Until now. Day after day, we get hit. I've never had such big mounds on the side of the driveway at this home. It reminds me of the late 70's. I play broomball on Mondays and Wednesdays. There's only been 1 Monday that it hasn't been snowing. I feel like I live in the U.P. of Michigan.

The low tonight will be -2, with windchills near -15. Tomorrow nights low will be "0".

I'm looking forward to working in KC.

Oh, wait, the high there tomorrow is 11, with a low of -6.

Sh.t.

Global warming?

The planet went through and ice age, and a tropical phase, without man. I think it's going to do what it's going to do, with or without our help.

My daughter has this little bichon/yorkie mix, Lexi, that I've grown attached to. You know how it goes, the daughter wants a dog, and 3 weeks later, it's yours. For whatever reason Lexi decided the fuman was her potty pad. She pissed on it so often, I finally got rid of it. Well, sort of. It had a little foam pad under the cover, and we cut a little 1 x 2' section of it, to intentionally use as her potty pad, at my daughters aptmnt. She'd just piss there all the time, like it was a kitty litter box.

Well, my daughter decided she didn't want the dog at her apartment, and wasn't getting enough sleep (she bartends), with the dog waking her up in the morning all the time. So she "gave" it to me. Well, I don't have a pisspad. So the dog adopted our little 1 x 2 throw-rug we have at the bottom of the stairs.

In a year, I have never seen her piss on it. But she pisses on it almost every day. I constantly have to wash it. Lexi comes and gets me whenever she wants out, so I'm not exactly sure when she's doing it. She even wakes me up at 3 or 4 in the morning to let her out. I'm thinking it must be when i'm gone, or in the shower or something. But hell, it's better than having her piss all over the house. I know I'm suppose to kennel train her, but she whines up a storm when she's kenneled. I don't mind really. She pisses on the rug when she absolutely has to, and I just wash it now and then. Like I say, it's better than having her piss on the carpet.

I'm pretty sure I could litter box train her.
