    Ok just got the shock of my life! everyone keeps telling me of this snowfall we are getting tonight (I rarely watch the weather) and I finally said let me see how much we realy are getting. News people make a big deal out of 2 inches of snow because we hardly ever get snow here.

    I live where the red dot is :shocked:

    oh wow! Yeah, I think we got an inch or two last night and everyone freaked out, as usual :roll: Now there is hardly any left... we are supposed to be back up in the 70's before the weekend gets here. As I have said MANY times... only in AL can you go from snow to 70 degrees in less than a week! :greengrin:

    Stacey we are getting your storm now. It looks like theres about 5-6 inces right now and still snowing heavily. Which is more then they said we would get. And of course my DH is down near georgia and had taken the battery out of the plow truck for a tractor. So I may be here for a day or 2. Our driveway is about 1/2 a mile, all uphill. Well gotta get out to the barn,burrrr.

    When I aw what was heading in your direction, first thing I thot was WOW....Snow never hits the Eastern part of PA or even the coast...especially that much! I hope that Candy, Di, Dobe, Ashley and you, Stacey are going to be nice and snug and not need to be out in it, prayers comuing that the heavy snow does'nt affect your heat or power.

    Dang! Angie sure looks pissed off. LOL

    Thanks for calling Stacey. All is well here, just snowed in, so I guess I don't have an excuse not to clean the house today. :angel2:
