Thanks for the Thread , I was waiting to see how long this would take to make ATS.
We are in Ontario and with all the lakes around us it can get nasty and nasty very quickly too!
I gassed up the snowblower and brought some fire wood indoors in case we loose the electricity here.
Our big concern is the wind....if you have ever been outside in 50 MPH wind gusts at below zero then you know what I mean.
If you have never experienced that I will tell you right now that if you are even close to facing the wind you cannot breath........It really does take your breath and you must turn away from the wind to catch your next breath.

We already have a good 50 cm's (almost 2 feet) of snow on the ground and if we get this sucker it will be hard to find a place to put it all.


To the people in the affected area get your milk and bread now because the stores here are already running low.

Take care to all and don't drive unless you have too.
Regards, Iwinder & wife

Northern Pennsylvania saw numbers as low as -30F a week or so ago and that was before windchill. I definitely know what you speak of there. We haven't had a huge winter storm since the blizzard of 1993, where we were left with 12+ foot snowdrifts and roads shut down for a solid week. I'd say we're overdue around here.

I hear you there, the last big one here was about 10 years ago, the roof on our local mall collapsed and one person died.
It was the wind that did it as there were huge drifts on the roof and the Fire department could not get there in a timely fashion.
They ended up grabbing snowblowers that were in the stores in the mall to save people.
I hope this does not pan out but after a lot of looking at weather channels here on the net I say again ...be prepared and get food.
Regards, Iwinder

I live about an hour south of St. Louis in IL, and so far we have only had a little bit of drizzle. Our temperature is right at 32 degrees, so our drizzle may be freezing soon if it keeps up. We haven't had any really bad storms here in years. Last big snow was 1982 and I remember an ice storm that kept us without power for a week in the 1970's. It's not looking good for areas north of St. Louis for tomorrow though. Lot's of closings already including a lot of businesses, which you don't see happening much. Missouri has declared a state of emergency and has deployed their National Guard to aid in "community response.www.ksdk.com" (Hope I linked that correctly)

When nyc got hammered with 19 inches last week, that storm hit hours earlier than expected. When the Meteorologist was asked why the storm came early morning as opposed to night like originally thought, she stated that the 3 models they used were all giving back different results, with a difference of 4-5 hours between each model. She also stated how rare that was and so they couldnt track the storm with normal accuracy.

That image makes it look like an ice age is coming

I have never seen so much snow in one season in my life!

the storm on dec 26th dropped 36 inches (My backyard) and the storm a week or two later dropped about another foot... and the one 10 days ago dropped around 18 inches.

Now this mother lover of a storm is about to bury us again!

This winter sucks noodles!

Al gore got it wrong... Its global cooling VIA winter blast! I wonder if next year will be just as bad if not, worse!?

Keep safe everyone and uhh... invest in some skis, snow mobiles, and uhh... lots of hot chocolate.

were going to need it!

When I saw that satellite image of this storm and realized that it still wasn't as big or as organized as they forecast it to be...my reaction was Holy ****.

Just some food for thought but MSM has gotten the snowfall amounts wrong all winter. It’s almost always deeper than predicted.
Plan a blizzard party, the conditions are right!
Good luck.

You got me Laughing here, I kid you not the wife is heading out right now to get some (un-squeezed) goodies.
I too have my smokes and my snowmobile suit which should help in the wind.
We also have a gas stove and with the fireplace we should be able to keep the house warm, at least the kitchen and living room.

Yeah down here in the south they are expecting 1-3 inches of ice, sleet, and snow. Preceded by severe storms, thanks you dang yankees for bringing your weather to make you feel like home! I blame Ben and Araon for this mess, I repeat you are blamed!!!

We too have noticed this trend with the weather forcasting, have you noticed that they really tend to shy away from the prediction of accumulation now?..........rarely now do they even go near how much to expect .......it is almost always a guesstamit on the amount of snow or rain.
For our area here they are changing the arrival time of the storm faster then I can click on the re-fresh button.

That sounds like a guarantee to lose your electricity for sure, 3 inches of ice is heavy duty big time headache time.
Did I mention that it sounds bad?
Take care there and stock up.

This winter sucks noodles!


Fort Wayne, IN here and I'm waiting to be socked in for a few days. My husband will be going to work in the morning; luckily at Home Depot where he will be able to get a generator if the wires go down. I stocked up on lots of things at the grocery.
I will be sucking noodles, because I will be making noodles to go with braised beef. I'd share if I could......... probably making bread too. Maybe some brownies.

If you don't share those brownies...I'll claim conspiracy!

I have to say.... I went to the local "big chain" grocery store about 2pm on Sunday afternoon to get essentials for the upcoming "MEGA-storm". (I live 20 minutes south of St. Louis) I grabbed some pooper paper
, water, and a few other odds and ends for the 3 of us. The bread shelf....damn near empty. Some lady had 6 loaves in her cart. Milk...gone except for that soy crap. Eggs....mostly gone, what was left had broken eggs spewing their guts all over. The checkout lanes had a minimum of 15 people each! While everyone else got their milk, eggs, and bread (I'm guessing for making obscene amounts of French toast) I grabbed my 30 packs of beer, Wine for the wife, some pooper paper and the other odds and ends for a few days of uncomfort.
I hope everyone makes it through this! be safe, and warm!!!

I found myself doing the exact same thing up in central NY yesterday. And saw the same situation...eggs, almost gone, milk pawed through and water scarce. The "pooper paper aisle" was surviving however.
