    Good luck to all! My parents (in Western Massachusetts) have their generator ready and their water stockpiled! I hope your tanks (but mostly your families) stay safe!

    Yes, good luck! Ironically, our schools were 2 hours delayed today :shock: It wasn't even snowing here, and there's not supposed to be any snow. But I guess the rural part of our county has chance of snow? Beats me. Didn't make sense to us, though.

    You're close enough lol. The weather channel has named this storm "Nemo". So if it happens during the storm you know what you have to name the baby.....LOL

    I'm okay down here. Still not dug out, but much closer than I was this time yesterday. I have a ridiculously long and steep driveway. My car is in the garage, but I'm still a good 5ft or more away from reaching the garage. And I'm sore as sore can be! We dug last night until past dark. But no power losses at my house, and the tank at work is connected to the hospital's emergency generator so I'm not worried about it. It should be topped off today but that isn't gonna happen. I think I can get away with not topping off till tomorrow but pumps will be spurting by then. Oh well, what's a girl gonna do?

    Beej, that picture is priceless! Those poor workers
