The local weather folks are in full meltdown mode here in KC, hinting that we're in the "bullseye" for this storm. Can't wait, finally a reason to put the Jeep into 4wd this winter. :D

Anyone else on track to get hit by Snowstorm "Q" that's coming through?

Yup. Around here they call a "level 1 snow emergency" for anything more than 2 inches of snow. It's pathetic how sissified everyone is these days.

Unless it's at LEAST a foot, it's not even a serious snowfall, certainly not a "major winter storm" as they like to say when we get 6 inches of snow.

Translation - "I just flew into Denver and they are looking for 0.33-0.50 feet today and couple 0.1's tomorrow. I just want spring to come." :D

East San Diego Freeway was shut down due to snow. Some of you from real winter states might get a kick out of this picture and closure!

Welcome to winter in San Diego!

Just started snowing here in central Ks. They say 10-12"...we'll see. Usually when they predict that much snow, it snows about an inch or two.

Laughed my a$$ off at this. A couple roads on my commute haven't been that good for a couple weeks, and we've hardly had any snow. I guess it depends what you're used to.

Getting started here in KC. When I left for work on the north side of town, there was a flurry or two and dry pavement. When I got to work 25 minutes later on the south end of town, I was in 4wd. Pretty sweet.

People are going nuts - I'm a John Deere dealer in Olathe - We brought a semi load of snowblowers from our Iowa warehouse - They were GONE in 3 hours. People are in a complete and total panic.

Haha... I just went to the grocery store to grab some stuff for the week. I got literally probably one of the last of 10 loafs of bread. It's like, people... you're not gonna be stuck inside for a month. It'll be fine in a day. I'll probably be rolling around tomorrow pulling people out of the ditches and make some extra cash :)

Haha, the hi-po kicked me off the I-10 in AZ for doing that. Guess I shouldn't have stopped and offered to pull out the cop that spun out!

Uh oh... losing branches. We got lucky, nothing down in our yard. Our neighbors had a tree that uprooted and fell all the way over. Big tree too, probably 40-50 years old.

I'm a little late on this one, but we got 9" from that storm. Roads were fine by 9 am and was half melted in 24 hrs keep in mind this is Iowa too. Another 6-7 just fell last night and still have yet to see a plow. Get to test out the 4x4 in the new truck today!

Snowquester snowstorm is going to hit the DC Metro area tomorrow.

But since they are calling it Snowquester does that mean it will have a 20% cut in snow accumulation?

Forget the snow its tornado season.. Was down at the Lake of the Ozarks Monday night when the storm hit. Really strong winds in my area but the news reported a tornado not that far away. Power went out at 7:15 PM Monday night and remains out still. Had to leave Tuesday morning since there was no power and head back to Kansas City. I am just thankful it was not worse considering recent damages elsewhere. At worst I am sure to have a stand alone freezer full of bad food and fridge with a bunch of spoilage to look forward to. There was alot of downed trees on the drive back luckily I didn't see any reports of injuries from the storm. Guess I will be in line at the grocery store buying new groceries on the holiday weekend with the rest of the tourist (least favorite thing to do at the lake).
