Many parts of the Midwest/Northeast are still cleaning up after Hercules dumped a foot or more of snow in some place. And the aftermath of frigid temperatures...and now the next storm is due in less than 24 hours: ION.

And another 6-12 or more inches of snow is due

I hope you guys have warm blankets, extra generators, and lots of hot beverages.
You're going to need it.
(I'm thinking mulled wine.)

And stay warm, cozy and safe indoors.

Time to pick up some more propane for my campstove and soup fixins'. I've been negligent in that regard, but lucky as well as my power hasn't crashed.

I do have plenty of beans & Jerky though and as long as I'm under a blanket, that should keep me warm...though smelly.

We've had terrible storms and rain the last couple of weeks in the UK, but no major reports of snow yet. maybe some in Scotland. Not looking forward to that at all.

Hope you all stock up and stay warm. And don't forget elderly neighbours.

Good thing we're right on the edge of this one although I still don't think anyone is going to want to go outside to shovel even 2" to 4" of snow in the cold that's chasing this storm!


Oh, well, we'll refresh our hot tea and hunker down here. Our power shouldn't get interrupted, and I'm not due back at work until the 15th. Yay for me.


Oh, and I looked at the title of this thread and thought you misspelled ISON ...

You know what I find alarming about all this? That we name our Winter Storms like hurricanes/typhoons. Have I been living under a rock the whole time or is this a new trend? Because if it is new, holy wake the $#%^ up people! amiright?

High of -7 on Monday and I still haven't finished installing my new furnace.

My name is Robbie and I'm an ATSaholic!

Thanks for the heads up. I'm not so much worried about the snow as I am the sub-zero temperatures. Those are the biggest threats.

But why these people have this absurd urge to personify any type of winter storm is beyond me. I am still left wondering the root cause of all the hype. It is a winter snow storm. It's winter and we get snow and bad weather every year. No surprise, as it is rather normal in these parts. Seriously, do we need to name the storm each time it happens? Is this really necessary or just a way to send people off in a frenzy to the local stores to empty shelves instead of being prepared from the beginning?

I am beginning to think that we turn too many things into entertainment.

The Weather Channel started it last year. They felt it would make people take winter storms more seriously.

I think it's stupid. I always pay attention to the winter weather because it is actually more disruptive than even the worst summer storms unless you are unlucky enough to sustain a direct hit from a tornado or live on the coast where a hurricane can get you.

Dangerously cold conditions will spread into the region Sunday night into early next week behind this system. Wind chill values Sunday night into Tuesday morning will fall to 10 to 30 degrees below zero at times. Precautionary/preparedness actions...

As a single Mom, this is scary stuff. 4 Kids, 2 doggies, 6 cats and 21 chickens...

Been working our buts off trying to get everything in order before this deluge.

Kids are already tooting in rehearsal for this hunker down period...


Beans beans the musical fruit...

Help me...

Gather wood, Books, paper, fuel etc... don't rely on the system in case this goes longer than expected.

If you end up in a vehicle for warmth don't forget to crack a window as you could end up dead with carbon monoxide poisoning. Cycle engine on and off as the car heats up and cools to conserve fuel. Keep it cool but livable not HOT to conserve fuel.

Many homes have internal walls made of wood. If desperate tear them down and burn it. Remember staying cool is better than warm so you can last longer with the supplies you have. Ventilation...

If you know old people get them to come stay with you so they dont have to rely on themselves to survive. Not only can you help preserve their life but their additional body heat can help you all stay warm.

Good time to lose some weight to conserve food supplies. Diet time.

Cats and dogs can become emergency food supply if it is life and death. They also produce heat so keep them near.

The naming of the storms certainly got my attention and I live in Florida. It's a good idea it will save lives as it WILL make more people pay attention.

I worry about people who lose power in these situations, in 07 when we were in a deep ice freeze, no power for a couple weeks the stories surfaced afterwards of just horrific survival and death experiences. You would be surprised at how people think they can rely on the system and have no other preparedness for these types of emergencies.

Noone is safe in this type of event, fire preparedness and an alternate place to go are essential. You cant get out and drive in it even if you have a place to go in an emergency situation like fire. Keeping extra supplies in a garage or shed is advisable until help can come.

My little one said yesterday, so we meet at the mailbox? ?????? We had a revised fire plan last night...

Just a couple minutes exposed in these temps causes frost bite.

Yeah, well, no. My pets own us... they are family not food. We are not overly supplied for sure but we can always eat beans and garden veggies that I canned. WATER is the most important thing to me. People and pets get reallly thirsty in emergencies and power failures where water is rationed.
