The last report I heard on tv says we are going to get up to 28 inches from tonight til 3 pm tomorrow. Oh joy~ Not really into that much snow. I am sitting here listening to it thunder. I check outside a minute ago and it was very still, except for the thunder at a low rumble. Scary!! Well, God willin we make it through it, I'll be back tomorrow to check in. Good Luck All

It was kind of a crazy evening for me so I didn't get to hear anything about the weather. Actually, I haven't even gotten to hear the election results this evening yet. Did anyone get tornadoes today?
