    Yall ready for this stuff? I'm getting off work early today and don't have to work weds. I don't mind a little snow - but the ice thing sucks.. REally hoping we don't lose power for long. I run on electric heat - that'll never keep up with the cold.. Time to start chopping more fire wood. I don't have a fire place, but I can make one hell of a roaring fire in the back yard.. In the event of a prolonged power outage I'll be getting warm by the fire outside only to go inside to get cold..

    It supposed to pass quickly - but as far as power loss goes there's no telling.. We lost power for about 4 hours a few weeks back when it hit the teens, there was no ice.. As we all know ice and power lines don't mix well.. Sure wish I would've converted to natural gas two years ago when I thought about it :rolleyes:

    It'll be good by the weekend, but until then LOL.. I have a 5 yr. old daughter that is my biggest concern.. Being born and raised in SC I don't like the cold - it brings back memories of the snow/ice storm we had after hugo.. Although this shouldn't be as bad..

    I learned the hard way a couple years ago when we lost power for 7 days .
    50 below outside and 5 feet of snow . All my water pipes burst and wife and kids froze. Live in a small town . 4 gas stations in town all ran out of gasoline by the 2nd day into the storm and no fresh deliveries for a week because highway was closed .

    Now I have a pellet stove in the basement with battery back up for heating . A small generator for the electric heater and television upstairs /refridgerator .a bunch of LED flashlights as well as candles . I cook with one of those Coleman camping stoves and the barbecue . 2 back up propane cylinders and 3 gerry cans of fuel .

    Sure enough we get another power failure this year for 3 days . All my friends and neighbours stayed warm in my house this time .

    That would suck, no power for a week :eek: I'm stocked on Gas, propane, and LED flash lights along with fire wood.. Really wish I had a fireplace - but can't change that.. Good thing is my Grandmother lives a 1/4 mile from me and has a fireplace and a PIA to get started Generator.. We'll be fine - but it won't be any fun at all if the power goes out for long..

    Yeah its all sorts of crazy around here. Everyone is stocking up on goods and propane is selling out fast. I do residential/commercial glass work for a living.. We've had ton's of calls this morning for last minute broken window replacement - toooooo late for that people.. Stuff's been broken for years and you wait until the day of the flipping ice storm to fix it.. :smack:

    :anonymous: do that every time there's ice on the car. Turn car on, defrost on high, go inside for 5 minutes. :notsure: might have to re-think that.....

    I'm gonna cover my windshield this afternoon to spped up the process of thawing a bit in the event I need to run to my Grandmothers and load her up with firewood..

    I do look forward to some snow for my daughters sake. We have a little hill in the front yard that she can sled down.. That part will be good times :)

    Yeah, still a little warm for snow, but it's still pretty to watch the snow come down.

    :woot: for playing in the snow with kids

    I even have a chip in my windshield (covered in speed tape) that's been there since early '04
