    Big snow coming

    This morning, they were saying maybe an inch. Now it's up to eight inches. Wonder what they'll say tomorrow?

    Oh, boy.

    Thanks,

    Bill, no imagine living through that 120 years ago, no electricity, and a whole lot of other things we get to enjoy snug in our warm homes

    Take care, don't over do that snow shoveling, that is what kids are for!

    This one's missing us...Goint to the South of us, and heading straight toward you, Bill. Looks like it could get messy, too.

    Stay warm and dry - and hire a kid to do the shovelling!

    OK Bill...........My best Friend really loves us! last night on the way home I stop and pick up 2 pieces of Swordfish and a pound of extra large shrimp. Shelly gets home form work and dinner is almost done we then sit to watch .....what else for 1 and a half hrs. Woopie. Ok I can not sleep because of acid reflux from the tarter sauce and Old Bay, I know but I like it Shelly works on a IEP for school. We both fall asleep late. At 7;30 I roll over and say ; did you alarm go off? she jumps out of bed and grabs the phone and calls school telling the person she is late. The guy on the other end has been a long time friend and Vice Principle and he sort of yells at her What Your kidding me. Then tells her school is closed

    It just passed through here. Weird storm. You might have 8 inch and the next road over only has a dusting. The freeze line is right along the edge of the storm.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    we are supposed to get 4" this afternoon Steve. My appointment called a few minutes ago and said the roads to her farm were bad. That dose not concern me but the hour and 15 minute drive is more like a 2-3 hour drive with the way the DC drives are so I canceled that one for the day.
