Well thanks to global warming we are getting a huge ice storm here, I'm running on generator and have huge limbs down everywhere, we've gotten about 2.5" of ice so far and it's still coming down. It's sucks, oh well!
Here a picture from Paducah KY Channel 6


So what about you are you getting hammered?

texas comes to a grinding hault when they just talk about snow or ice. It doesn't have to. All they have to do is talk about it and you have millions of people stocking up on generators and spam like it's the end times

and yet ironically we are the yahoo's who will sit on the front porch with the barbeque grill watching a tornado touchdown

Same here ... we only get a really bad ice storm every 15 years or so, last one was in '93

Everything here is at a full halt, very few businesses are open (OMG even Wal-Mart is closed. I never go there.), nearly everyone is without power unless you have a generator your screwed. I have a gas stove so I can cook and a fireplace and a garage full of wood, no as full as it was yesterday. But tis life you just deal with it, they are not going to work on restoring power until the storms have past could be out here for days.

It's cloudy and 52 here in Alabama. Suppose to get rain tomorrow but nothing worse than that.

Seward Alaska, and I'm waiting for some F-ing snow so I can go ride my sled (Snowmobile). Friday we got a half a foot where I work, , but none where I live or ride, which is only 4-5 miles away. We have several inches of solid ice on teh ground, but it needs snow to keep the engine cool. Bummer, eh?

Nope.  No alcohol for me today.   TongueOut

It's about 11 degrees here today.  We haven't had any snow in a while but there is still a ton of it on the ground.  Everything's pretty much frozen.

I find it amusing how people in southern states freak out when it snows.
I've been exposed to massive amounts of snow and ice my whole life so it's no big deal to me.
When you live in Iowa, you get used to it.
The weather here changes so much that some people will joke that you'll shovel one day and mow the next.

70 degrees was the high today.  Rained, though, so it was miserable.

True they do freak, but we don't have the equipment to remove snow, ice is just ice what can you do? The trees aren't "ice ready" so they get big and then the ice comes and the snap like twigs I go outside it sound like a shooting match with branches snapping. I've burned through a tank of fuel already on the generator I still have enough fill it 3 more times. My trees where beat to death by Ike and now this, it will be amazing if I have anything other than 40 foot stumps left after it's all said and done.
There are power lines hanging down across the road about 4 feet off the ground so I have 4 ways out and 3 are currently blocked. Oh well I've food, water, a generator and wood so I'm good for a while.

Hey Cheeze,  you got the front end of this, while we got the back end here in Arkansas. Luckily I live in the central part of the state and have so far missed most of the really nasty stuff. 


One of the weathercaster's here started rating winter storms by the bread-o-meter.  Every time the forecast calls for snow or ice, there's a run on grocery stores and bread is the first aisle cleared out by weather panicked shoppers, followed by milk.

We have a "wintery" mix coming in as well, supposedly not accumulating more than 5 inches.  Currently we have some massive snowbanks on the street so I'm hoping it goes more towards rain for some much needed melting.  We're along the coast so I'm surprised we have this much.

This crap is said to be going to changing to snow and were going to get 5"-10" on top of all this ice, it's been right at the freezing the mark so it's freezing rain and rain, but the sun is down and now it will turn off cold.

90% of the area is without power, only a few isolated spots have power ... luckily our local country store has power, but there running out of stuff. They were going to stay open all night and they have a big side dinning room they've cleared out for folks without power to crash if needed.

I'm still running on a generator ad looks like I might be for a day or so, they have already said some areas may be without power for a a week or longer I know there are power crews coming in from your state, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

Oh well .... at least I have some power and a fire.

My local weather bulletin:

FREEZING RAIN...OCCASIONALLY MIXED WITH SLEET...WILL CONTINUE
UNABATED THIS EVENING ACROSS SOUTHERN INDIANA AND NORTHERN CENTRAL KENTUCKY.
BECAUSE SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE NEAR FREEZING...ROAD CREWS HAVE
BEEN ABLE TO KEEP MAIN ROADS PRIMARILY SLUSHY. HOWEVER SIDE ROADS
AND ELEVATED ROADWAYS ARE EXTREMELY SLICK AND HAZARDOUS.
ALSO...ICE ACCUMULATING ON TREES AND POWER LINES WILL INCREASE THE
LIKELIHOOD OF POWER OUTAGES AND TREE DAMAGE THIS EVENING. DO NOT
TRAVEL TONIGHT IN SOUTHERN INDIANA AND NORTHERN KENTUCKY UNLESS
ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

The lights have flickered a couple of times already.

Ice is much worse than snow.
