Apparently another major snowstorm is coming for the northeast on February 17th. I mentioned before that I found a really reliable source and he was head-on about Sandy and now this storm. He usually has the information out a good week or two so before anyone else covers it/puts the idea out there. I know my local weather stations won't touch snowstorms unless they are almost certain.

While I don't want to be digging out 2-3 feet of snow, I am jealous that I am missing out on the excitement. I am just missing the snow so it's boring here. I hope you all stay safe/stay off of the roads, but I see that most everyone was ordered off of the road around 3:30 PM.

I still remember the last Nor'easter I experienced before moving to Texas. It happened right around Presidents' Day. We got about 3 feet in Maryland. My step-father had a pick up with a plow, but instead of pushing it away from the house, he pushed it toward the house. I asked him how we were going to get in and out of the house. So I dug a trail from the front door across the yard to the driveway. I called the mountain of snow "Winters' Mountain" (his last name is Winters) and my path was dubbed "Beckwith Valley".

Our cat has been going strong on the pills we give twice a day. The doctor said everything looks fine and we will wait on two tests. He gave her a shot and she came home feisty!!!

They kept her for a few days because it makes them very slightly radioactive and then released her. It added 7 yaers to her life and she even gained weight !!

The snow I am seeing on TV is so pretty and I am so jealous! I just want everyone to stay safe!

I hear of people having to shovel snow. I have never shoveled snow in my life and never seen anyone ever have to do so. The only type of ice/snow equipment that some people might own around here is an ice scraper, a lot of people don't even own one of those! I need to move up north! =)

Hoping to make it through the night with power, it is getting really nasty out there. Blizzard-like conditions now only going to get worse as the night goes on.

Good night everyone.
