Reminds me of stories my grandmother used to tell when she was growing up in Northern MN. Storms that were so brutal they had to use ropes to maneuver between buildings on the farm, else get lost in the blizzards. Children getting lost on the way to school and not being found until spring thaw, just to name a few. The Midwest US used to have massive winter storms as a matter of course, perhaps the weather patterns/cycles are shifting back? Take care, those of you who will be affected.

Interesting information. Perhaps we are headed for something new and this cannot be considered simply "cyclical" ... hard to know, at this point.

Al Gore is on top of it with his best scientists - I hear they are using the internet.

Does anyone know what direction the storm is heading and how I could follow it?

I am not familiar with weather sites and would appreciate some assistance here...

If only I were that witty - I just hit Google for an animated avatar and saw that one for free, thought it was funny and it was a done deal. It’s named "wave"; I don't really know why.

It just reminded me of someone flagging people down or trying to get their attention which seemed like a fitting avatar.

Not that I need attention just the whole point of posting is to get people to read and interact.

Glad it had the intended effect.

This storm is going to be one to remember if the forecaster are right? I have heard about reports of 60 mph winds, 22 inches of accumulation, whiteout conditions, massive power outages, subzero temperatures, and they even said that high waves could be coming in off of Lake Michigan in Chicago and causing flooding on Lake Shore Drive.

Chicago area readies for blizzard



Gale-force northeasterly winds could create nearly 20-foot waves on Lake Michigan that raise coastal water levels, erode beaches and flood sections of Lake Shore Drive with water and ice.


I have never heard of the lake having those kind of waves before, and causing flooding? This storm looks to be one for the record books? This does not seem to be the usual media over dramatization, because I got a bad feeling about this storm. Just the size of it and reach is mind boggling. It is supposed to span 2,000 miles. Furthermore, it could essentially cut off the Midwest from the rest of country for awhile if it is as bad as the meteorologists are saying. Batten down the hatches!

Yeah, you and me both.

Just in case for some reason...I could not access your link (paid content redirect?) I found the same thing,
on a different site.


www.businesswire.com...

This is like a big red flag. Like...the stock before BP...
The stock before 9/11.

Honestly, when 9/11 went down I was at work...it happened while I was with a client.
I had no knowledge until about an hour later.

I was blown away...I had family close there in the area.

I will never be naive again.

Ok I'm gonna try this again. I'm in southern Indiana, and we didn't end up getting much of this storm as it was mostly north of here. It is still very slick out on every hard surface; sidewalks, roads, gravel, etc. even without the accumulation.

Anyways, I went out a little bit ago and took some close up pics of a few trees and bushes and thought I would share a few pics. Enjoy
