Oh boy, now we're under a blizzard watch, should be a very interesting 24 hrs. I just picked up the last couple of D batteries at our CVS. And went to Walmart for a rechargeable Coleman lantern with LED lights. For years we've been using the one needing propane, not good when you can't open the windows in Winter. So glad we have this now, I just know we're going to lose power with this one.

We here in the Midwest are pretty familiar with brutal winter storms too, and I just wanted to wish all the New England DIS'er well with this upcoming blast.

Stay warm, stay safe!!

Thank you! It's almost right on our doorstep in the morning. You should see the grocery stores around here! I've done everything there is to do, now we just wait for this monster to arrive!

It should be an interesting few days.

Have your schools been cancelled (as the governor's recommended)? Mine have school for two hours! Hopefully they'll rethink it and just cancel.

My area is suppose to get 12-16 inches
I went food shopping, got gas, bought rock salt, have the shovels ready, got batteries, flashlights & candles. I'm ready! Hopefuly since I did all that, we'll only get 2 inches

So far our schools have just cancelled all after school activities/events. I'm guessing they will be sent home early.

Yes, all schools on the South Shore and Boston have been cancelled, per order of the Governor (or strongly encouraged rather). My husband works in Boston and he's working from home tomorrow, so I'm very releaved that my family is home safe for the whole day.

Yeah, schools took the governor's advice and cancelled, finally.

Kids were happy!

Stay safe guys!! Here in Va, it doesn't take a lot to shut us down. However, we moved a lot as a kid, and I can remember living near Lake Huron, and in Glens Falls NY. Winter seemed to last til May!!

Anyway, hope everyone keeps power!!

Stay safe everyone... Warm and safe if you can.

We are used to it as well, but it is NEVER fun.

Only 10cm called for here, but you never do know.

Jill,

When you first posted this, I was going to say you were too far out for us to get all worked up about..... Shows how much I know.

I worked today until 3, was at the market by 3:15, and was out by 4:00. I hate that I had to go today, but we needed regular groceries, not just the makings of Blizzard French Toast! The new Market Basket in WB had every register open, and had a bagger at each lane too. They did a great job today.

DH & DS went and 'borrowed' my parents' generator (Mom & Dad are in FL), we have gas for the generator & snow blower. Plenty of food, and if we lose power, at least the perishables can go outside.

Stay safe everyone!

Ha ha Deb, so true, usually they'll hype it up early, only for it to be a couple of inches. Not this time, this is the real deal. I was at the deli today, had to wait 20 minutes, but then got right out, what a madhouse. But we're as ready as we can be! Lets hope we don't lose power!!

Update!

Well, we survived the night! And we didn't lose power!! Thank God. We got 22 in inches of snow here on the South Shore. We have lost our cable and Internet, but that's ok, I'm able to watch Ch 5 live on my iPhone, way cool. My sister has lost her power down on the Cape, she's freezing. I feel so bad for the 400,000 that have lost it. How did you all make out?

We are in Southern NH and have about 22 inches as well. Thankfully we never lost power.

Happy shoveling

we're on the south shore also, haven't heard an official snowfall amount but I'd guess about 22-24". never lost power thankfully and still have cable, internet,phone too! We are lucky! DH is snowblowing now; DD got stuck at work from 3 pm yesterday until 11:30 pm tonight (she's a nurse)I'm glad she wasn't out trying to get home in this mess!
