OK, where did the year go?
I mean seriously, 12 days until X-Mas? It feels like it was only a couple weeks ago I was starting this job and planning my vacation...

I know what you mean, Jason. Christmas is almost here and my shopping isn't done. Winter is also here are we're supposed to get 3" to 6" starting tonight. Seize each day and try to make the most of it.


From the snow you're talking about, sounds like you're in my neck of the woods.

Which means tomorrow or Sunday, I get to see how my sportly little, low slung car can handle it!


Finally warming up a bit here. Some areas have been getting snow by the foot, so the 8" we got last week wasn't so bad. The ice storms are the worst - I can't imagine being without lights and heat for days.

You know, a DR plan.

Yeah, I think you're in Warren, MI, right? I'm west of you in Bloomfield Hills. It's supposed to start tonight and a winter weather advisory starts at 9:00 PM. Granted, we've been pretty lucky so far compared to the rest of the country, but this is Michigan and we know it's coming.

Yeah, although up north is already getting decent snow I believe...

Time to (finally) get the lawn mower and snow blower switched around in the garage, and fire up the snow blower for the first time...

28 (F) in northwest Ohio - but we are bracing for a Winter Weather Advisory starting tonight running through tomorrow evening - although in recent history, these kinds of predictions have a tendency to err on the side of overly cautious and extra dramatic. We'll probably get 2 inches of snow and the grocery stores will be out of bread and milk

We have the same phenomenon here. If even a smaller winter storm is forecast, the grocery stores sell out of the staples very quickly. Then the news blurbs run for a couple days about "battening down the hatches" and "preparedness in action" and all the other dramatic flair. Then we get some minimal snow and the local news people make excuses and blame NOAA, El Ninio, La Ninia or an upper air disturbance. The part I really find interesting how people feel the need to "stock up" if they think they're not going to be able to get groceries. I've heard it referred to as the "economy of scarcity".

Of course, now that we say we're only going to get 2 inches, we'll probably get 2 feet and the schools will be closed all of next week.
