MKY: I refuse to watch the weather anymore!!! They are having a hard time predicting this one. They just keep telling us to make sure we have food in the house and get our errands done now.

Forecasters are saying it's going to be a nasty few days in our area. 12-20" band with a blizzard watch

Normally we are 2-4" max snow or .5" ice so this is quite a storm.

Stay safe everyone

Thank goodness DS came home last week!!! I would not have made it!

They are saying it will start on Tuesday but the worst will arrive overnight Tuesday and Wednesday.

It is going to be quite the storm.

Hello All June, July and August planners. I don't post much, but am trying to plan our vacation in August. I have made our reservations at the Beach Club Resort for August 10-19. We can make our ADR's starting on Feb. 11 which I am realizing is only in 10 days. AHHHHH!!! I am so not ready for this yet. I have picked out places that I want to eat at, but the family is not cooperating. So, I may just make all these ADR's according to what I want to do. That is the hardest part. We have 6 day park hoppers (with 2 days of relaxing) with water parks also. I have 3 girls (13,11,11) that love the water so that is the reason for the water park option.

How do you decide what days to go where? I don't know how to even start. I am sure I will be doing all the planning and everyone will be happy in the end, but I am starting to feel stressed out. Any templates or spreadsheets out there to help? I am a spreadsheet person. I love them.

Any help planning would be great. I can't wait to go.

Everyone in bad weather spots, stay safe. I am in the SF Bay Area. Sorry.

Thanks.

Allyson

welcome eskgwin: I avoid EMH days and Mondays at MK are always really busy compared to other days of the week. Some love the EMH, but getting teens up in the am is no longer fun. I know mky had a good EMH morning last summer and it's cooler. Just be careful not too plan too much in a day by getting up early and then staying up late.

SNOW is coming...well, it's here. We'll see how much we get.

Tomar: They are saying freezing rain here. May be worse than the snow. They said it is broken bone weather. So I bought milk and hit the post office this morning. Got meat for dinner. We are set. Also bought a 50 pound bucket of rock salt to melt it all.

We saw part of the news about Chicago where it told nurses to bring a suitcase as they didn't know when they would get home again

Parts of the city lost power here

they have not called off school yet either so DD and I are studying for her pre calc quiz it's on POLAR coordinates!

The storm arrived earlier this evening. It is blowing REALLY hard and snowing like mad.

They have cancelled the school buses but not school yet. I don't think we have had a snow day in over 15 years but I hope they call one for tomorrow.

Snow plows were pulled off the road, tow trucks are banned, the National Guard is helping stranded motorists, and the power is out is some areas (thankfully ours is still on). Calling for 50mph winds tonight and -20s windchill tomorrow night

Stay safe and warm everyone

DH is even home today. We had a call at 5am. That's a first in 25 years! I think we have 12 inches which I am so happy we didn't get more. They pulled the plows here too Minnie...south got hit worse. I hope you are doing okay.

mky: hope you and Bug are doing okay.

My mom said Detroit has 23 inches so Candi I'm not sure what you were hit with.

Now it's in the East and there is another storm tracking that way again too
Stay Safe everyone.

We got a lot of snow and it is still coming down.

They closed the schools for the first time since my kids have been going.

I think we may have 8 inches now, but the drifting is bad and that is probably what Detroit is quoting. Anything they get, we usually get since it is only 1/2 mile between us.

So DD15 is still sleeping, DD12 is watching TV and I am working on printing the confirmations and such for our March trip and DH is on a conference call downstairs and waiting to be called out for an outage at any time.

Stay warm and safe everyone.
