Here in the northern part of the midwest,we are pulling out of the storm which is going to give you a double wallop.

Hope you have your supplies in, the genny gassed up and and stay inside where it`s safe.

Let us know how you`re doing.

An inch an hour. It's been bad, but it's puny compared to the blizzard tonight. We're expecting two feet, and I'm expecting to lose power again.

I'm resting all I can before getting to work on the snow. And I fed my family well while there's still power. I pretty much grilled up most of the meat I have so that I wouldn't have to throw out food should I lose power. The last storm, lots of food was thrown out.

Stay safe & warm northerners. I am one of you, even though I don't live up there anymore - i know very well what you are going through. Sucks.

I am trapped and alone.
Hope the space heaters hold up and power does not go out.
Non working furnace.
No phone in my husbands ICU room so cannot even talk to him.
And cannot get to hospital to see him either.
Betwixt all that, cannot rest, need to, but do not dare take my required pain meds for fear of becoming too dizzy and falling again.
Yes I am b!tching again with valid reasons.
I am scared and depressed.

Lexxigramer, please be careful... going off meds 'cold turkey' could also send you into other crisis...

Everybody, stay bundled up!

Thank you for reminding me of that.
I am so worried frayed and lacking sleep my mind is not thinking clearheaded.
I need to rest and stay calm.
Already having potential pre stroke symptoms
like before so I must calm down.
Thank you.{{{hugs}}}

I have an oil lamp and 3 cats if the power goes out.
Cats are great little heat units in bed.
I am wearing a hat, coat, and gloves in the house too.

This snow is ridiculous. I got close to three feet. It's impossible to just get out the door.

Shovel as it comes!

That was my most useful lesson from living in the Great Lakes Region of New York.
It's much easier to shovel 6 inches six times than it is to shovel 3 feet once.

Unless you have a snow thrower.
Then, enjoy.

Of course I did that. Except it was a 50 mph blizzard. The moment you shovel, the wind equalizes that crap out.

Of course I have a snow blower. Actually two for wife and husband. Those are standard issue items in New England, in addition to a truck with a plow.

I feel you guys. That's why I moved.

I will always love and miss New Englanders though. People don't get much better than them.

Hope everyone has dug out and doing alright.

With hose, I always just hoped that the wind would make a trough where I had to shovel.
Luckily, it always seemed to
