Bad weather
Just hoping anyone in those 60+ tornado's down south are OK.
Not that you would be able to post anyway...just think-in about you all.:)

Not in the path of the tornadoes, but sitting under almost a foot of fresh snow here in southern WI.

So this is just the start of it moving from WI to MI?
Already have 6"

Woke up to 2" in Vermont and ended the day with 6". I hear your storm will hit us Friday or Sat. Thanks! :-)

13" to be exact. Some areas just South of me got 20+!

TheFentonGuy 02-08-2008 07:14 AM

Yup, areas around us here in VT got 16"+. We have another two storms headed for us for Sat. and Sunday. I enjoy being a guy with a snowblower, but filling it up 2-3 times a day sucks.... I'm only 31, so I can handle it, but I often take care of my older neighbors also... where are the kids in our neighborhood?!?

Hey "D":
Janie and I live about 14 miles from the place where the tornado killed 3 in western Kentucky. The day after the storm we went to our Tennessee Mountain Home and drove right through another place that had been hit. The Govenor of TN said it looked like someone took brillo and scrubbed the ground. He was correct.

Good to hear from you
I was a little worried about you folks...I have seen the devastation of a tornado first hand, it is always just plain O'l bad. The only thing left was the copper water line and 2 lolly columns comming out of the slab. Then 3 lots away...a house had some broken windows.
Glad to hear your safe, the biggest thing around here is the cold, 8 degrees right now with lots of wind....I'm going to finish framing a roof today with a friend of mine.

Snows gone...
The wind here today is just plain fierce...:eek:
Loosing brances and trees all over the place with the thawedout, muddy ground.
Time to get out the chiansaws out for the next years firewood.:D

Suprised the power is still I gone an done it....:rolleyes:

So now it's Hurrican Ike, look out Texas. I'm just glad I only have to deal with snow up here...comming soon.:D

:D On the upside , it does create a lot of work.
