The same thing happens here

yep, all set for it

woodstove, propane lanterns, cast iron cookery with fire ring which fits woodstove openings. No problem.

2 feet is better than 1 inch

The problem is ice, not the one inch of snow. Temps in the teens and 20's but roads melt it in the daytime, it freezes to "black ice" on sundown. My road wasn't too bad today, but even then almost slid out the end of it onto the cross road before coming to a stop, and I was going slow.

Ice storms are far worse

Ice breaks trees that fall on houses and power lines. Massive power outages caused by ice storms cannot be handled by local utility repair people and outside help needs to be called. The same can happen with derecho winds that affect a wide path. We've had both in the past several years. We had a Winter ice storm where power was out for more than a week and a Summer derecho that took even longer. In Winter this means a greater chance of frozen water pipes. I'm not sure how Daniel Boone made it through these power outages. Happy

75 million to be affected

That's 1/4 of US population. I-95 expected to be closed too, when this blizzard hits.
