    In the middle of a blizzard as we speak. Have lost power twice and the windchill is minus 8, last time I checked.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Just think of this. My community's ancestors braved much harsher stuff than this (-50 or worse at times) while in holes in the ground-damn near isolated from anyone else, while the North Easterners had homes.

    No. I have a snowblower and a fireplace. That's about as high tech as I got.

    Anybody here have any stories about the ongoing storm they would like to share?

    Article is here.

    PS - I decided to make my link one to a political site, just in case anybody would like to blame the storm on either Obama or Bush.
    And in other news, water is wet and the pope is Catholic.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Well the folks at Fox News are doing a good job of amping up this storm. A whole tent collapsed. Shocking. I never knew a winter storm could do that :O

    No offense to the people up north, but please let this storm stay up there, we don't need anymore ice down here.
