    :) Good way to think about it. I'm sitting here in the East feeling hunkered down because of the torrential rain and the threat of flooding.

    We are about to enter a 2-3 day deep freeze if the weather guessers are correct. And I can't jet to warmer climes right now. !#%€*£¥!!!?!!!

    Yeah, this is one of the things I miss about my old job... this time of year, I could always find a reason why I needed to go to Cape Canaveral for a few days. :p

    I will guarantee you that there will be ice on either wednesday or saturday or both in the midwest...because I have to drive on those days

    We dodged the ice today! Freeze line was about 50 miles north. Sorry, Nashville. ;)

    I'm on the East coast...watching the forecast and hoping the snow doesn't mess with my Friday evening dancing.

    Flights cancelling along eastern seaboard. weather channel and news reporting that people are asked to stay home in certain cities/etc etc. check before you drive/travel.

    It looks like it's going to mess with mine... they keep advancing the forecast for the "back side" snow and ice earlier. Now I'm hearing 1 PM.

    6-10 inches of snow projected to be where I live, and I live on the side of a mountain with a rear wheel drive sports car. I'm not going anywhere this weekend. :mad:

    Ha! I also live on a mountain with a sports car. It's been raining like heck here since about 9 PM last night, and it's supposed to turn to ice around noon today. I won't be staying at work very long.

    Working from home today. Suppose to get anywhere from 18-20 possibly even 30" of snow. I just hope our power stays on.

    Possibly over the side of the mountain if you do drive...

    I'm in Austin TX, flying home today to Minneapolis. Weather in both places looks OK, but I just checked where the plane I am getting on at the Dallas layover is coming from....Nashville. The flight still says "On Time", but the earlier flights Nashville to Dallas are all in cancelled status. Watching to see if mine will join the club. Going to be a long night I suspect.

    The plane is leaving Dallas @3 to fly to Nashville, maybe I will get lucky and they will not send it to Nashville.

    Good news for me, bad news if you're heading to Nashville. I put an alert on the 3:00 flight Dallas to Nashville and the return one as well. We will see.
