  • From what I hear on the TV, if you can read this you are one of the lucky ones in Bedford County. Up to 3,000 without power, is that correct?

  • Actually, it sounds as if there were twice that many originally and I am sure they are mostly isolated outages from trees, not big blocks.

    Those folks are working hard out there and colder weather to come.

  • If you can get to this story in the T-G http://www.t-g.com/story/2167129.html scroll down to see a beautiful side effect of this storm.

  • Well, my driveway is clear, sort of. Branches are hanging low but no trees down and I can get by. The sun has for all purposes gone behind clouds so no more thawing today.

    It never went above 20 up here on the hill. I am going to have to rig a thermometer on my weather rock. I can't find a forecast that fits us. :-(

  • I like it when a forecast states a high of 40, current temperature 45. (that's just an example-I wish it was above freezing now)

    Anymore, it's pick the forecast you prefer because none of them match...

  • News channels are concerned with direct surrounding counties, but is it me or do they also pay close attention to the northernmost part of the state as well.... Leaving us to guess and deduct.

  • Oh, for the warm 40's

    We just had ice and the most power outage but it is not as captivating as snow, I guess.

  • Weather forecasting is the only profession where you can be wrong 90% of the time and still keep your job...All my life I've been walking out once a day to determine whether it's cold, snowy, icy or rainy....And, If I'm achy I seem to know a front is coming in. Twice a year I seem to know the very day spring is here or when fall has officially hit because my stuffed-up face and watery eyes know it well.

    Whether or not weather is actively happening at the moment it is definitely the ice breaking topic for every conversation I find myself in...I like it! Would not change it for love nor money...seems to keep us all friendly around here and that's a good thing, even on a blustery cold day.
