How is everyone doing with their weather this week? We are predicted to have freezing rain Wed. night/Thurs. morning. No fun! Maybe we'll get lucky & get to see some white, fluffy stuff instead.

Hi everyone....I'm back, but have not read any of the previous posts since last Wednesday...did i miss anything important?
I am happy to report that I successfully completed the 26.2 mile Mickey marathon at WDW on Sunday and have my medal to prove it! It was such a blast! I trained very hard for a year and it paid off as I finished without any difficulty. Not too shabby for a fat old broad. Once I stopped, however, it was a completely different story...I could barely limp my way to the monorail even though the skies opened up and it was pouring. I was pretty much in agony the rest of the day, but felt much better yesterday.
Some fellow cruisers also did very well. Nancy(padisneyfan) also successfully completed the Mickey and Jenn(hygiene99) aced the Half-marathon the day before. Don't know if Peter and Jenn made it home yesterday due to the snow up north. I'm sure they won't be too bummed out if they have to spend an extra day at WDW!

Congrats on finishing the marathon!!!! That's awesome.

We're due for some sort of frozen precip tomorrow. I'm hoping it will be snow instead of sleet, no ice, just snow please.

Angie, you've lived here long enough to know we're due for another ice storm! At least that's what Glenn Burns, Paul Ossman and all the Atlanta weather people are hyping! It won't be long until everyone's making the mad dash to the grocery store for bread, milk, eggs, batteries, firelogs, candles, and the most important of all -- BEER & WINE!!!!

Please let us Atlantans know when your precip starts (and in what form!). It'll prepare us for what's on its way!!



And YES, CONGRATS to all who finished the marathon!

Yes Please...I'd love to see Snow in AL!!! They at first said "possible snow flurries" then "winter weather" now "winter participation".

No problem. I think it's supposed to start sometime tomorrow afternoon. This morning I heard it's supposed to be sleet. We've been due for a big one for some time now. Can't wait. That means no work cause everything shuts down.

Heather, be warned about using the gas fireplace too much. Our 1st year we were in our house we had a BAD ice storm ... maybe it was our 2nd winter because we bought the gas logs in the off-season. Anyway, we were stuck in our house so we used the fireplace ... can't remember if the electricity had gone out our not ... our gas bill that month was close to $500!! Talk about !

I need to run to the store today for more milk anyway. Guess I should consider what else I need to buy, just in case. Yes, we are due for another. And, we are due for snow! Since we've been here (almost 10 years), it has consistently snowed at our house every other year - some years more than others. My kids are still little that they have a hard time remembering the snow from year to year.

We're the same here ... if it snows or sleets, everything will shut down. The bad thing now for me is that my company gives us the flexibility to work from home. So if it storms & we still have electricity it's no free day for us.

Stay warm everyone.
Ang

Most of the time in Alabama it's a panic for nothing, but every once in awhile... We really are due for a good one. I don't think we've had a good storm up here in over 5 years. We had a slight dusting last year, but not enough to cancel anything. It sure was pretty though. We live in the mountains, so if there's any snow or ice we're not going anywhere.

We live in the mountains too! I guess we'll be good to go if anything does happen. We just went to the store Monday. WOW....a $500 gas bill

the only thing I am concerned about is we are supposed to fly out at 6:55am Friday morning to Orlando!!!! Which means we need to leave here around 4:30 or 5:00 to get to the airport.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Right now for here they're saying sleet/snow tomorrow afternoon and then rain and the mid 30's for tomorrow night.

bumping up to pg 1!

So far so good weather wise. Very cloudy, no rain here yet! South of us is raining and a little sleet they said on the news.

I'm going to have a lazy day today....some , trip to the post office, pick up ds from school and that is it!! The cloudy weather makes me tired.

BTW, ds had a blast at the wrestling thing last night. Turns out our next door neighbors sat right in front of ds! Go Figure...it's a small world....

That's what our propane bill will be when they fill up our tank this month, if not more. This time last year we paid $600 for January. It was only $365 last month, but it's supposed to get down to 0 this weekend with an inch of snow. Our furnace, hot water and clothes dryer run off of propane. I've been really cold this winter, so have been turning the thermostat up to 70 degrees when I'm home. I'm so ready to move south. I even told DH last week that I'll go ahead and find us a nice condo or townhome somewhere down south, and he can join me when he retires in 15 years. Of course when we win the HGTV dream home sweepstakes, we'll have that nice 2 million dollar home in the Florida Keys
