Yep, but fortunately for me...it's more South. However I have relatives in the area where they say the 'ice bullseye' is located. I haven't heard from them.

we're looking at about 10 or so of "heart attack snow", with a healthy dose of rain and freezing rain tossed in for good measure.

that's me, bac, m&p shooter, eraser, and everyone else in our area.

the last people that lost power last week got it back today...just in time to watch it go out again.

1 to 12 inches. That's what you call hedging your bets.

Finally warming up in WI. Once it breaks 40 next week I plan to turn the outside water on and wash the vehicles. The sister in Charlotte, NC is getting slammed right now. It's best to 'shelter in place' with weather like that in an area not accustomed to it. Then hope the power stays on.

11 pm- The Okie Corral

1 am- The Okie Corral

5 am- The Okie Corral

7am- The Okie Corral

Now I'm annoyed because infusion center did not leave promised outgoing message, answering svc knows nuthink!!! Has no idea when a message might go up, And will not take a message from me. Intellectually I know that everyone is closed today, but it's stressing me because they specifically wanted me there earlier this morning, only do infusions 1x week and they better the heck not try to charge me for a missed visit or be snotty that I didn't leave a message when I can't get anyone to TAKE a message!! Also, I'm overly emotional from not sleeping again.

Gonna try to go back to sleep and just let vr handle it but stuff like this really throws me off my game, no matter how dumb it is.

/rant.
