That is good, hope you can stay home & stay safe!!

Wow!!! What a concert!!! I've always loved Charlie Daniels but to see him play in a venue like the pines just made me apperciate his talent even more.

Now that the concert is over I'm going to sign off for the night. Praying that everyone stays safe on the east coast this weekend and that everyone who is under the weather feels better soon. Goodnight!!!!

It is gonna be a doozy! They are already telling people to stay off the roads on Friday, one model said there is going to be 60 inches dropped in Boston, but the weather folks said don't believe that one. I better get my snow rake ready.

Good evening,

It was a busy night at work, lots of people preparing for the big storm. Customers were saying one school in the area has already said they will be closed for Friday. I talked to my management about what I should do if I can't make it in, so my plan will be in place, I am not going to risk my life for a few pounds of hamburger. Just winding down from work now, I hope everyone has a good night.

It's funny you mention that you like Ray Lewis. There is a local sports radio talk show host here in Dallas named Randy Galloway and he hates Lewis, and thinks everybody hates him. Today he was going over Forbes magazine "10 Most Hated Athletes" and Ray Lewis wasn't on it, he went crazy. Not to mention that Tony Romo is on it.

Here is the list in order from most hated to least hated.


1. Lance Armstrong
2. Manti Te'o
3. Tiger Woods
4. Jay Cutler
5. Metta World Peace (what the heck kind of name is that?)
6. Alex Rodriguez
7. Michael Vick
8. Kurt Busch
9. Kobe Bryant
Tony Romo

I am not saying I agree or disagree with this list, I am just sharing it because I thought it was interesting and never even knew this list existed.

Winter storm watch for
Stratford - Mitchell - Southern Perth County issued

Significant snowstorm threatening Thursday night and Friday.

An Alberta clipper currently tracking southeastward through the Dakotas is expected to track across the us midwest tonight and Thursday then track just south of Lake Erie on Friday. This clipper may intensify into a winter storm as it approaches Southern Ontario.
Many parts of Southern and Eastern Ontario may receive 15 cm (about 5 inches)of snow from this storm by Friday evening. Some areas may receive higher amounts, with 25 cm (about 10 inches) not out of the question

not quite as much snow as you, but still a fair pile
