Oh, I hope your power doesn't go out again. My family lives all across North Arkansas also and are impacted in varying stages based on mere miles also.

Our words are a little more boring. Blizzard is one. 18-24 inches is also being thrown around. White-out and don't drive, the obvious.

Your words were much funnier. I need to know where to find the graphic. My husband would have a ball with that and drive us all crazy.

Oh my gosh, I love this post. I had to run out yesterday with the masses not because we needed milk or bread, but because I needed googly eyes to make Valentines with my boys. If we're going to be stuck here for days we'd better have something to do on our snowcation (sounds more fun than "snowed and iced in without power" right?).

All of the weather headlines are killing me, too. Each news station has its own lead-in to the news with a full-screen "WINTER STORM 2011" blasted across it. We live in St. Louis, and they're predicting this will be the biggest storm since 1982, so I really hope they don't let me down.

Stay safe!

You have a Little Debbie STORE?

I'm moving near you. Look out for houses for me.

And stay warm in the meantime. It's WARM and thunderstorming here - which usually means tornadoes. I'd rather have snow.

Oh, our weather people are in a FRENZY too! I am ready, I have cream and butter, bring it on!

* SNOW WILL SPREAD NORTH INTO SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN THIS EVENING AND BECOME HEAVY OVERNIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY.

* NORTHEAST WINDS WILL GUST TO 40 MPH TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MORNING... CREATING AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW... AND WIDESPREAD BLIZZARD CONDITIONS.

* THE HEAVIEST SNOW AND STRONGEST WIND GUSTS ARE EXPECTED TO COINCIDE BETWEEN 10 PM TONIGHT AND 10 AM WEDNESDAY.

* HEAVY STORM TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 INCHES ARE EXPECTED.

* WIND CHILLS BETWEEN 0 AND -5 DEGREES ARE EXPECTED TONIGHT.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

* A BLIZZARD WARNING MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. FALLING AND BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND POOR VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY. THIS WILL LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS... MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRAVEL. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL... HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU. IF YOU GET STRANDED... STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE.

Hope you don't lose power again!

In Rogers, we're having a "Winter Blast"...it did sleet from 3am -8:30am, and then the snow started...big,fluffy, cotton ball snow! They're saying up here in the NW corner of Ark, we might experience a blizzard. That means the snow blowing so hard that you can't see in front of you! And it's calling for 12 in. We'll see....I stocked up at WM yesterday and now I have so much food I'm having a hard time deciding what to fix for lunch and dinner tonight....soup, chili, chicken pot pie...? It's also really hard to stay on my "beach diet" when it's like this...I really want cinnamon rolls, cookies, hot bread with butter....Well, anyway, I'm happy sitting by the fire reading books, magazines and forgetting the outside world (except for the beautiful snow) for a little while :)

Tara

I live in Minnesota. Where you'd expect snow. Our headlines **IN THE WEATHER SECTION** of our local news website? Wrestle Mania is coming next week. :)

Cary Garner

My friend in Illinois posted these:
Snowmare on Elm Street
Snonami
Snowado
Snowicane
They are supposed to get up to 20"!! Eeeeek!

The headline of our local paper is boring: "City workers ready for storm".

I'm very sad about our weather - our weatherpeople were WRONG (shocking, I know)-We're not getting anywhere near the 12-18" of lovely snow forecast in North Central OH-IO! All we've gotten thus far is... sleet! With more sleet to follow. And, possibly, "freezing rain".

I am intimately acquainted w/ "freezing rain" - (just google "Ice Storm Mansfield Ohio 2005" & you can read all about it). That 3/4" of accumulated ice left us w/o power for 6 days!!! I'm not a sissy but, I wouldn't make a very good Amishwoman, either.

After many false reports & near-misses, on the 3rd day of said power-outage,a rumer was swirling around the radio waves that Home Depot was getting another shipment of generators in - so, there I was @ 3:00am w/ a bunch of good ol' boys - I was the ONLY girl - what's up w/ that? Thankfully, I got my generator. So, at least we're prepared if the ice storm cometh again.

Even w/ the generator (it doesn't run EVERYTHING) let me tell you, I've never been so happy to see the power company trucks come our way - I seriously CRIED w/ joy!

Good Luck to all - hope everyone stays warm, dry & safe.

Just Me

We had fifty inches in one month, and now we're getting two more storms in the next two days!

Crazy winter!

PeepOne

We didn't get anything really but a little sideways sleet and snowdust!! My trash can is down the street ...somewhere..I have the lid!

Marie

Sadly we have no Little Debbie store here. Here in East Tennessee we have rain with chance of thunderstorms overnight.

My husband drives a truck and is stuck somewhere in Texas due to ice.

Bethany Ellis

What a wonderful adventure! My forecast: rain. Boo hoo. But I believe it's supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow; yay! ;) I either want it to be snow, or 70s. :P

Heather

We're having a blizzard. Seriously.

I do like this line from a local news story though: "A winter weather colossus...."

Other than that, they're just calling our blizzard a "Winter Blast."

rrmama

I'm with you I love this weather. We are suppposed to get sleet and some snow here on Thursday. The lows for the week are around 27-29 every day. And the highs are 36-38. This morning with the wind chill it was 8! 8!! Here in Southeast Texas that's a bit cold. I love it. I'll take the cold any day over the heat. I mean seriously in July we will be screaming we want some of this cold weather. Stay warm!!!

jean

How is your Mom doing? Is she home yet? I just wanted to check on her and make sure she was ok.

Your mother

I am so jealous! All the snow went to YOUR HOUSE. I know you have 2 ft. and I have 2 inches. The store was OUT OF BREAD and I don't have a LITTLE DEBBIE STORE.
