I was going to say be thankful you don't live in Boston, but really, ice is much more dangerous than mountains of snow. I live up north so I'm used to getting a lot of snow, but when we get freezing rain in the winter, it can get pretty treacherous. At least with snow, you can get some traction and don't have to worry about slipping on sidewalks and cracking your head open.
Stay inside, curl up with your dogs and be safe!

It's been snowing all day here. We're supposed to get about 18 inches. It's already past ankle deep. It filled the wheel barrow I use to haul wood up earlier around 4 and I was just out an hour ago and it was full again. This is a big wheel barrow.

I do not envy you! I live in western new york, and I'll just keep our two feet of snow (drifts and plow hills up to the sky!). I hope you don't end up with 2 inches of ice over everything. That sucks!

it was a recent decision to start naming all strong storms rather then only hurricanes. because its more sensationalist that way. helps keep the fear going which makes climate change an easier sell.

I'm getting old, and I'm getting tired of northern winters. Sick of snow, sick of cold. I'm tired of hard starting cars/snow blowers. Had enough of gas bills in the multiple hundreds.
My plan was to move to the Carolina's, guess you blew that idea for me
Stay warm down there!
