You boys ready? I heard DC area was expected to get 30-36" of snow and they were telling people to get a weeks worth of supplies.

Not in DC (thank GOD!) but they are predicting around 8 inches here with a possibility of 1 inch of ice. We are geared up -- hoping for the best, trying to prepare for the worst.

I am near the middle of the 20-30" band. About the tt in Charlottesville. Got the blade hooked to the tractor. Got more wood from the barn.

Work may be on hold for a week or two, but I will have plenty around the farm to keep me busy.

a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded... stay with
your vehicle. Prepare for the possibility of power outages during
snowy and cold conditions.


I lived in the mountains of Colorado for 8 years. You get used to snow out there, you just had to avoid the tourist rental cars. Here people are idiots.

It's snowing here now. We got maybe an inch melt down yesterday and looks to have gotten an inch or more over night. I'm glad it didn't freezing rain yet and hopefully it stays cold enough to not switch over.

It snowed off and on this morning since very early. My son headed in early from the night shift -- I was awake in case he had any trouble getting in. I've been out some before day light but it has changed from snow to sleet and freezing rain. That is not going to do well after dark this evening. The snow does not alarm me, the ice is another story. It can cause power outages pretty quick here. Hope you guys have a safe and great day!

I hope it's not ice here. The temperature is close for staying snow right now.
