Mornin’ guys and gals…....Last night around 7:00 p.m., it started raining lightly here in the Ozark Mountains. Then… it turned to some sleet and freezing rain, and that lasted untill about 10:30-11:00 p.m. Luckly it wasn’t too heavy, and didn’t stick as ice (I don’t think) too bad. It quit for a short spell, and then it begin to snow…lightly again. Our local weather forcasted it to fall between 5-10 ”, but up here you can’t ever tell. Most of them people can’t hit the ground with their hat when it comes to forcasting. I’ve always said that every weatherman needs a window in their office…... lol. But…... during the night it got heavier, and now at 9:00 a.m., it’s still coming hard, and looks like to me, that we have about 4” on the ground. Snow forcasted to fall all day, and maybe into the night (?). I couldn’t even send my wife to work to make me some woodworking money, so we’re both stuck. But….. I’ll be heading to my shop shortly where it’s nice and toasty to make sawdust. It looks bad everywhere. I’m glad I’ve got plenty of hot ciffee in the shop…..!!! So come on and let us know how it is in your neck of the woods. Are you able to move, get into the shop, stranded, etc. I’ll be keeping up with the reports, as I take my notebook laptop to the shop…..Start giving reports now…... later.

Hi neighbor

We are having moderate snow (what ever moderate is) at the present and f/c is up to 10 inches b4 it’s over tonight. My weather deck has about 2 inches on it. Had a little sleet and ice last night but nothing like they were forecasting. Our weather persons have been acting like they are ADHD for the last few days trying to work everyone to a state of panic.

Since you are a hunert or so miles to our east it looks like you will get a lot more than us.

I’m about a hundred miles north-east of you, and getting a steady snow, with about 3-5 inches on the ground. It has been blowing enough that it has my back porch covered, under the roof, which is unusual.

Unfortunately, my shop isn’t heated so won’t be out there today, and even if it was, I am on standby for extra coverage for the ambulance service, since it is such slow going out on the roads. I did the same thing during the ice storm last year, spent most of my four days “off” on a truck helping people get oxygen bottles and that type thing since most people were not prepared to be without electricity for their oxygen concentrators. Not so bad this time yet, since the power is still on.

Luckly our power is still on too. Hope it stays that way…...

Nothing here yet, in Virginia, as of 12pm but the Governor has issued a state of emergency for the southern half of the state in anticipation?

Greetings Timbo:... That sounds serious where you are. Hope nothing comes of it, but you never know. Just try to be ready if it does happen. Good luck, and keep us informed.

I’ve been hanging around here a couple months. Snow here now has changed from lots of small flakes to lots of big flakes and more wind. Guess it is about time to go build a snowman.

I think the whole state of Arkansas is under a state of Emergency since this morning also.

No significant snow here in Cleveland, but it is 15 and feels like -2 with the wind chill!

Greetings trimmer…..You gotta like being in Florida this time of year. Don’t know if you live there year-round, but I’d like to be there right now instead of having butt-deep snow. I could even catch some big bass while I was down there…..... lol….

A little snow here in Nashville. They are calling for 4-6”. I’m guessing we might get 1 1/2” based on their past guesstiments.
