We've already got about 8"... but the brunt of it is still coming all day today.

Hopefully I'll be able to get out of the city and have a smooth drive tomorrow...

Thank goodness it is winter and we live in a drafty house. Even with a humidifier running, the air tends to be very dry. At least it should all dry well, and then we can assess the damage.
I hope there isn't much damage. That can be a pain to fix.

Yup, better to just walk away. A couple of years ago in the spring, the wife turned on the outside water. Never put the plug in the faucet bleed outlet and flooded the basement. Damaged the walls, ruined the carpet and a ton of the kids things. Several times I started to tell her what had happened, but stopped before getting there and the problem is still thought to be a faulty pipe.

Better to just fix it and move on. Nothing good can come of pointing it out. I enjoy sleeping at night.

But no, instead they went to Canadian Tire, and bought a bunch of (cheap) electric heaters.

Not sure I would be comfortable using a heater sold by a tire company. Do they smell like rubber when you turn them on?

Don't worry Canadian Tire sells everything and you get Canadian Tire money from them when you buy.

Oh, that sucks. Sorry you have to deal with it.

Good move not calling her out on it, though. I find that doing that just opens me up to more criticism the next time I do something stupid (which is inevitable).

That sucks. Hope the damage isn't too bad. I would also suggest not bringing up the cause.

Or a LOT more effort is put into finding what you've done wrong, no matter how trivial

DS came down just when Luke found out what happened to his aunt and uncle. I covered his eyes for that and Alderaan getting blown up. He loved it. DD came down just in time to see the final dogfight. Her response was, "They blew up Darth Vader's planet."

He'll have to make sure he reapplies that sunblock every 4 hours.
Everything I've read is saying we are getting slammed. Although we've heard that numerous times before. One difference between this storm and the storm in 2011 (where we got 2 feet of snow) is that there is nothing more than a dusting on the ground. In 2011, we had 18-24'' on the ground when that snow came.

Here is my mailbox from the 2 ft we got in 2011. And that isn't from me shoveling it. That was from the plows.

True. Or just bank this disaster away in the memory bank and break it out when you REALLY need it.

Hopefully it melts by 3/24.



Here is another CT station... now calling for 36''+ for Chris' and my area.
