    Its awful when you know they are predicting a storm, and you keep looking outside. Its suppose to start after midnight in my area, and all through tomorrow. I just know I'll be looking out my window in the middle of the night.

    I have already decided, I'm not taking any chances, I'm not going in to work. The wind will be picking up throughout the night, and blowing the snow around all day. We are expecting 2 feet. We get lots of heavy snowfall, stormy conditions, but this one coming sounds like its massive.

    The last major blizzard we had was in 1977, Blizzard of 77. Now that was a storm! There are lots of you tube vids.

    Our area is pretty much shut down. my college was shut today and tomorrow. Transformers are blowing up. Lots of people without power (obviously I still have mine). But I have a box of candles ready. This is when it would have been nice to have the fireplace.

    Our snow has stopped but it is frigid here and supposed to be -7 thursday morning. That is mighty cold for Oklahoma. We have 4 ft. plus drifts here and there is no way we can get out of our driveway. Hubs is going to try and get the tractor started tomorrow and see if he can get it bladed down. They called his work off and then go in later wednesday if they can make it at all. We had a storm like this in 2009 and we were crippled for about 2 weeks but we had more ice then than we do now.

    Friday and Saturday we were upper 60's and 70's......wow what a difference a day makes.

    Our temp is now 37 so it changed to rain but it's dropping now so everything will be icing up again. Power outages abound with more to come they say when the high winds (50 m.p.h.) kick in this afternoon. About another inch of snow is expected this afternoon.

    We ended up getting 9 inches. The sun is out today but there is a windchill advisory..4 degrees here and will continue to drop over the next few days.

    I haven't heard our snow totals, but I think they vary widely in NW Ohio because of all the sleet and freezing rain that mixed in. We have a skylight in our master bathroom and even with the door closed it was very unnerving listening to that most of the night.

    Both of my kids schools are closed and I swapped Wednesday for my normal day off. mr. veejer is home too so I guess we'll head out in a bit to start digging out, but it is still snowing. I'm not sure how the snow blower will work on the mix we got.
