In my neck of the woods (southeastern MA) we are expecting 50+mph winds tonight, c-o-l-d temps tomorrow, and a rain/snow/wind storm on Monday.
This a.m. I'm gonna take my gens "for their monthly walk" (aka: run them a bit) and top-off my fuel can.
We've had more than a few wind storms the past couple of months.
Yup, time to "hunker down".

Haha, don’t rub it in. We’re expecting extremely cold temperatures over the weekend with heavy snow and high winds predicted for late Sunday into Monday. Ontario Canada between Toronto and Ottawa. I’ll exercise my generators today, hookup my snowblower to my tractor and get as much sleep as possible to be ready to run the Hwys with the Snowplow. Oh, I’ve got lotsa firewood to keep the fires going too…😬

Similar to Swamp in the bayou, here in this Big Thicket hardwood creek bottom I got up this morning and, like yesterday, put on shorts. For the first time ever, I had junebugs buzzing my outdoor light a couple of nights ago. Junebugs. In January. Go figger'. Considering what you guys will experience in the coming days I have never been so happy to be a scrub watching from the sidelines. Y'all stay safe and warm.

It seems like a winter outage would be easier to manage than the summer ones we get. But, of course, I'm not factoring in things like ice and snow, which is very rare where the Swamp People live. I grew up close to where that show is filmed, btw. In case you were wondering, yes. It's a little over the top on occasion.

Finally a good blast of snow for the north east. I’m excited. Snowblowers are fun for me.

I have a new project st1032 snowblower, to put through it’s paces. And I can see how my post winter improvements to my snapper1030 do. And the beastly HSS1328 is always a joy.

Of course a power outage is always welcome. 🙂

I have to cut my grass this weekend. And it's supposed to get down in the 50s in the morning, a couple days next week. Does that count? :sneaky:

If the forecast holds it should be good! Might finally get to use my snowblower.

What are these negative numbers of which you speak?! And more of this white stuff on the ground! And your trees have no leaves! What sorcery is this! I've heard tales of such places but dismissed them as myths and legends...

Actually my friend, if you’ve never experienced winter, you don’t know what you’re missing!! It’s not my favourite time of year, but the air is cold and crisp, no bugs or snakes or alligators, and with a woodstove to come home to, quite bearable. However by March it starts to get old…but the sun also starts to share it’s warmth. 😉

Sorry, my little rant sounded funny in my head. I actually lived up north for the first 30 years of my life. Even spent 3 years in Canada just outside of Toronto. Worked outside in short sleeved shirts in the winter. But now in SW Florida my blood has thinned A LOT. I feel like putting on a sweatshirt just reading some of you guys posts, and it's 72 degrees right now.

Used to live in Oswego, NY, right on Lake Ontario. Thunder snow, Lake effect blizzards, frozen fog, the list goes on, and I don't miss it. Now, back home in Southern Ohio, 3-5" snow predicted which is almost nice.

It's not the cold or the snow that's hard. It's the -30 to +6 and back again all in two days. It's madness.
