Inclement Weather...

Post by rukristin on Mon Jan 31, 2011 9:12 pm

With this storm apparently hitting like the entire country (or half) between tomorrow and Wednesday. What does it look like for everyone?

We're supposed to get like 6 inches tomorrow (of course when they said that last week we got 14 inches) and then 2 inches of just ice on Wednesday. Which sounds preeeetty horrific if you ask me.

So we'll be staying in for the next few days, makin some good food and just hanging out.

I have a couple soups/stews that I wanna make.

We are looking fine thank goodness. The temperature is dropping quickly (it was really warm over the weekend) but other than that we are getting rain and not snow or ice. I'm pretty glad Smile

It's supposed to get bad here too. I just hope that it waits until my mom and dad are home. They are supposed to fly into Chicago tomorrow, then drive the 2 1/2 hours home.

They are saying the worst part of the storm shouldn't hit us until tomorrow night. I hope if it really happens like they say it's supposed to that it will be enough to close the college. I hate that when the weather is bad, all the K-12 schools close, but I still have to go to school!

I always hated that Kim.

I just skipped class and emailed the professors and said, I'm not comfortable driving in this weather, I'm really sorry.

but most of my professors wound up cancelling their own classes

I talked to her around 7 this morning and she said everything was still on schedule. They are saying the big storm isn't supposed to hit us until around 5 tonight, so they should be heading home a couple hours ahead of the snow.

Please everyone stay off the roads if you can.

Its gray and cooler and rainy here so nothing we can complain about too much compared to everyone else.

I actually would love to get snowed in for another week. lol

Mara, I agree being snowed in would be fine with me! I have stuff I need to get done at home. I just don't want to have to go out in the snow if they don't close things down.

Oh, how Maine is not the place to be unless you are a polar bear or penguin. Today we are supposed to be getting 1-3 inches. It has already started so I am thinking that might be under estimated. Tomorrow we are expecting 10 to 14 inches more.

I don't remember snow like this since I was a child.

Katie, they were saying on the Today show this morning that several states have broken records that have been around for decades!

We have had a surprisingly mild winter this year in my area. I was just starting to get used to not really having much snow, but that is going to be over in a couple of hours!
