I really thought that since I have the snow-thrower gassed up and ready in the shed next to the driveway that the storm would just stay to the east. Looks like Mother Nature is on to me.
Anyone traveling be safe and smart. Don't take the unnecessary chance.
I plan on finishing our family room Christmas tree and moving snow this weekend. We have plenty of milk, bread and TP so we're ready.Thankfully our daughter is already home from college for the holidays.

Were stocked up and ready for it. I did sell my snow blower some years ago since we haven't had much snow for a long time. Oh well, That 2500HD parked in the garage from our 5th wheel days will pack it down. Still gotta go afer my son-in-law at National today. Should be home before it starts. Have a great Hollidays.

Kim, the radar is showing that Lynchburg is already on the leading edge of the storm. No sign yet of anything in Greene County......about 4 counties NNW of you. As reported by the missus working in Charlottesville, , no snow there yet, either. But it sure do look like it.

Chap, as of 2:50pm nothing was falling yet, but the radar shows it here. Probably not hitting the ground yet. It sure feels like it could start at any moment.

It's started, and every flake that has fallen has stuck. Here is the forecast accumulations for my area:

Dang!... I really want to get out of this heat and head up into that stuff. First year in about 5 that we don't get to head up there and look what we get to miss. The other year it got brutally cold, no real snow, but this would have been awesome!

Oh well, have to just go fishin...
