Looks like you guys are having some fun. It was 45°F today here in the "arctic tundra" of Minnesota. Going to be in the upper 30s to 40s this following week, looking at over 50°F next weekend. Unlike what people think (and forgot), it's not uncommon for it to be in the 40s-50s in February this time of the year. I think we had a few 60°F days even this time last year. We could have 10°F and 3 feet of snow.

You know it!!.. Rolling Eyes We've decided to cancel our plans for going to the show today. There's "white-out" conditions forecast.. and it's snowing steady already. No sense in tempting fate. We're not as "brave" with driving during a storm, as we used to be.

The swimming pool is holding water. I shut the hose down to a "trickle" before I went to bed last night. I was afraid it would freeze-up if I shut it off completely. I'll add more water today.

UPDATE... the spanking continues.. 4:00 EST.. 19 Eaton St. N. Smithfield, RI 02896..

Blizzard check-in - Page 6 Dsc03832
Blizzard check-in - Page 6 Dsc03833
Blizzard check-in - Page 6 Dsc03834

I went to the market around 11:00 a.m. a mile down the road, and picked-up a rotisserie-cooked chicken (Italian-style..), some veggies and soda.

On returning.. I handed-off the groceries to Lynne at the front-door.. and proceeded on my quest to perform any/all outdoor storm preparation planned in my little anal mind. The swimming pool had enough added water to prevent the walls from collapsing-in.. so I pulled the hoses, drained and wrapped them into something resembling a coil..  Rolling Eyes

Next on the list was the snow-thrower.. I'd covered it (as usual) with a tarpaulin.. but knew that the fuel-level was low from its last use. I "rolled the dice" on my fuel supply in the shed.. (which I had to shovel-out to open-up) Joy.. I had at least 2.0 gal. from last Summer's stabilized-mix.. so I filled the tank in the machine.. checked the motor-oil level and covered her back up.

Now.. I'm here with "you".. in my favorite place..  I Love This Forum!

I bet that makes you feel better, prepared and cozy. What's the temperature? I guess all the power lines are underground and safe from falling limbs and sliding cars.

Hi Buddy, I "do" feel better.. prepared and cozy.. temp is 30F.. but the power/data lines are all exposed in this locale. Our neighborhood in particular was built back in the 60's/70's. We haven't lost power enough times to warrant buying a generator.. but when we "do" lose it.. we lose our water. We have a well. That's significant. I reassured Lynne; that we have plenty of accessible water in the swimming-pool until it freezes Laughing which wasn't much of a comfort to her.

Women need to think more like men during times like these.. don't you think? I was a good husband today though... consoling.. agreeing.. I even filled the bird-feeders. Laughing I'm officially "done" though.. and plan on spending my time "here" in my most favorite place! I Love This Forum!

I must say roddie, I got a warm fuzzy feeling gazing at your pictures, memories of happy times in Tiverton I think. Kids sliding down the hill out front using any conveyance they could find, wife cooking a hot supper. I miss those things.

We could use a good snow storm here, I have a couple of very large burn piles I need to burn off. Won't do it unless we have a good cover of snow.

Yes Bob, lighting a fire on a calm-cold night outside is really nice. I usually have a few tiki-torches lit as well. A few comfortable chairs.. and a nice warm coat.. Usually on those nights; the stars are so clear and bright, you feel like you could reach-up and touch them!

Here we go again.. Snowman Snowman Snowman Another blizzard, due to start within the next 12-14 hours; just in time for the morning commute.  Rolling Eyes "Rene" is probably feeling it right now in Grand Rapids, MI.  

The forecasts have been up and down over the past few days.. but the latest shows that there will be some treacherous conditions tomorrow.. without a doubt. Temps will climb from the low 20's(F) tonight, to around freezing during the "height" of the storm (midday Tuesday).. meaning wet/heavy snow and the wind-speed will reach 30mph by mid-morning with precipitation at 100% and humidity at 80%. We're prepared to lose electricity.

I should probably stay home.. rather than risk driving to work. My employer will not call-off work.. because if they do; they'd have to pay the help Mad The last bad storm, they closed 45 minutes after starting time. I stayed home that day.. but those who were foolish enough to show-up, got paid for 1/2 the day. I have a 13mi. "back-road" commute each way.. and those roads are narrow and curvy.

Yep, never gets old Roddie.(sarcasm)
When it gets to this point, I start to think
about moving. Then it's nice, and all
is ok again.

Nice! Wish I was there Bob! It's snowing VERY heavily here right now.. but the winds aren't due to pick-up until a little later. We're in the 10-15 inch band (NW RI).. and I'd say that we have better than 8" right now. My company actually called-off work via text-messages last night. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least!

Haven't needed those lanterns yet.. but they're ready!

This would be fun... I think Lieven might have provided this plan/pic when designed his custom Cox-powered job!
