OH IT'S GONNA HIT THE FAN

This appears to be growing to greater levels than the past two ice storms. We had light freezing rain yesterday producing hazardous driving, frozen patios and grass. That light freezing rain has turned into heavy freezing rain and outside my door you will experience totally frozen tundra. It is only a matter of time before our water freezes and our power goes off. So when "it" does hit the fan, the fan won't be operating.

Be sure and check my "I Love Your Blog" link for a timely story today.

Thinking of you and trying not to regret getting anything here on the coast. We had flurries yesterday, but most is staying 30 miles north. I hope you don't loose you AC/DC!

Sorry about that, Annie. You and Arkansas Patti are in the same boat. Hope all will be well. Keep us posted when you can.

Scarlet said...

Ha! Let's hope it doesn't hit the fan...not that you'll be using a fan in those temps!

Keep warm!!

I feel your pain with temps in the 20s and a snow-covered lawn. I've already gone through 25 lbs of sidewalk salt -- a bag usually lasts me all winter. So much for global warming!!!!

I'll take the minus teens & twenties we have been in the past few days over freezing rain at any given time.

Funny, but we are having the exact same weather here in Lexington, Kentucky. Woot! Snow day for us teachers. I know it adds on to the school year in June but right now, who cares!

We have 2 inches of snow on the ground covered by a thick layer of ice! And there is more in the forecast throughout today. Have not lost power so far, thank the good Lord! Lots of birdies out there, and I thought about crawling to the feeders earlier, but decided against it and tossed a bunch of seed out several windows. They seem to be happy with that arrangement and are eating away.

Hope your power stays on, and you don't get too much ice. Stay safe and warm and well lit!

Hugs,

Renie

Do not slip and fall. Got that?/
On the baby below. When she has eaten all she wants...Do they then call her 'stuffed Olive' ??

Darlene said...

I feel for you people in your cold climates. Here in Arizona we complain because we have to wear a coat on a few days when the temp is a chilly 63.

I lived in Massachusetts for 3 years and the kind of weather you are describing is why I live in Arizona now.

THAT'S NOT GOOD.
HOPE YOU HAVE ALTERNATE SOURCES OF HEAT TO LAST FOR AT LEAST A WEEK, LIKE PLENTY OF WOOD AND FIREPLACES IN THE ROOMS YOU SLEEP AND EAT IN !

Riot Kitty said...

Yikes! Stay warm. I'll quit whining about the 3" of snow we had here this morning.

Marla said...

I have been hearing on the news about all your ice. Star inside and don't leave. I hope you don't lose power! Be safe!

venus66 said...

Thank you for your kind words.

Oh great One said...

Oh I'll be praying you come out of this ok. Take care and keep warm!

Annie,

We are getting snow and have been since last night at midnight. Sometime today, we are to get the freezing rain.

To keep your water lines from freezing, leave your taps open to allow just a trickle of water to come through. It works and you won't have to unthaw those lines or worry about a broken pipe. Hope this helps.

Blessings,
Mary

we're having a storm today but not as bad as yours

First of all, Olive is adorable....What a cute baby. We got a tiny bit of rain last night but no ice at all...It is supposed to get down to 29 degrees tonight so it will be cold but, thankfully, no ice for us...

Stay inside and get out your oil lamps and candles...Pull out some extra blankets and stay warm...Good luck!

Ice storms are SO dangerous.
I'm glad you survived to tell the tale.
