Say what you will, but I'll take cold weather over that any time! We'll get ice and tornadoes here in Michigan but no where near the frequency of ya'll down south.

Big storm coming in means a guy hunkers down. Food supply check, bottled beverage check (booze and water), Batteries and radio check, pipes, tobacco and cigars a necessity, chill out, a must. Reality check, Spring's on the way. Not to worry; you won't miss very much .............Congress is gone fishin'. If your local government is like our's on Long Island, it's all screwed up also. Gas out of sight, forget about running away. Good news, nobody will come to take your guns and ammo because nobody will be able to reach you. Happy Days are here!

Yup, we're ready Marty.

Food, Water, Booze, Pipe Tobacco, all the necessities. Topped off the battery backup bank for my Ham Radio room, so I'll still have communications with the rest of the world if power goes out.

Plenty of candles, flashlights, LED Lantern, batteries for am/fm radio, weather radio cube, and handheld scanner. Plus I can always run my base scanners off the 12v system. A generator is here also - to top off battery bank if need be and for the intermittent running of the fridge.

Good to go, just waiting. I'm lucky enough to live 1/2 mile from my workplace, so worst case I can walk (or ski). My wife has plenty of personal time built up where she works, so this is the direction she'll probably go.

This house has Natural Gas for the Water Heater, Stove, and Floor Furnace. Even if power goes down we'll still have hot water, a stove to cook on, and some heat.

You guys/gals know how this crap works, the forecasters hardly ever get it right - at least not for Missouri weather. We'll see what happens...

Propylene glycol doesn't freeze, no need to panic, Rob.

You Missouri guys generally have a bad ice storm earlier in the season than this.

Hopefully it won't be bad or better yet the forecasters are wrong!

The system seems to be moving slower than expected, it's just now starting in.

Naturally it's mixed precip, instead of just snow or rain... Rolling Eyes

The snow is almost over (for now) here in KC. We have about 7 inches of snow and 20+ mph winds. It's crazy. The news keeps showing shots of the interstates and there are people stranded everywhere. The city is literally shut down. Gonna be some fun playing in the snow a little later.

That's why the tradition used to be that the groundhog was eaten. Good weather, it was grilled. Bad weather, you made a stew. First fresh meat of the year. cheers Twisted Evil Good fortune for all, except maybe the groundhog.

Oh, don't worry....we aren't going anywhere today. And probably tomorrow as well. I don't have a problem driving in this stuff...just too many idiots to get around.

Amen to that, the snow doesn't scare me, it's the dipsh*ts that make me nervous.

Amen to that amen. Michigan drivers are pretty good when it comes to bad weather, but every year they seem to forget it. The first big snow of each winter sees multiple cars in ditches. A few weeks ago (when winter finally arrived here) my normal one-hour highway commute took me three and a half hours from all the backed-up traffic.
Be safe, guys.

Reno NEVER gets used to it. Half Californian fluffheads, half farmers used to it being dry ten months out of the year, just a sprinkling cloud and people do 20 MPH. Then, if it snows three feet, they're all over the place. Each time, every time. Nevadans are tough, pissy fellers, but precipitation is like a solar eclipse is to superstitious forest tribes. The world ends, until it doesn't, and then they're left confused.

Cool

My biggest concern during winter driving is the other drivers. Especially when they think they still can "stop on a dime", and the dime is the one in my pocket!

Very little snow here, Scottie. We have about a 4" total accumulation, but it's layered Sleet and Ice. Stores shut down early here, nothing is moving, localized power outages - but nothing major.
