warming into the lower 30s with an "icy mix" tonight. You'll get more snow. We're to get 2-4". What has surprised me is how accurate weather forecasting has gotten over the past few years. It seems they tended the give worst case scenarios which we took as gospel and panicked. Eventually, our response to each new cataclysmic weather event was "Ho-Hum...there goes Chicken Little again". Now when the weather guy/gal says "The sky is falling", we can look out the window and it's really falling.

We missed the earlier one...

In reply to: Scientists call it Santa's revenge

That hit the east coast last week. It basically skirted below us and kept on going to the east. As Steven mentioned what hits Chicago hits us later. It's a darn good thing, I did more firewood stacking than I normally do, as I calculate it and figure i have enough. provided this hard weather doesn't continue past Mar 15th, that's my cut-off point I'll do alright. However, because i remain at home more since I've retired, that means more firewood. So, again if things do alright the firewood and propane will make it. I'm glad I didn't have to buy propane now because its double the price when the season started. Everyone around is complaining about the weather, But I try to prepare for it. For once it seems I hit the mark pretty well. Of course, if we get icy weather and the ice stacks up, more fallen trees and hope the roof makes it. Santa has nothing to do with it, it's "ole Man Winter" and he has a cold. Wink -----Willy
