    Well guys this may be my last post if we lose power tonight or tomorrow,
    They are calling for 12" to 24" of snow & ice with wind between tonight & Monday.
    To my fellow Tar heels stay warm & stay safe, see you on the sunny side of the storm.

    Wish I was in Florida bout now :)

    Ok, I don’t feel so bad about the non-stop rain we’ve had in Birmingham all day. Thanks for putting it in perspective for me ! Good luck with the power.

    Hope Y'all don't get much ice and that your power stays on!

    If you want to give us all that snow, we will take everything you can give us here in Colorado! :grin:

    Similar forecast here, in Western NC, just outside the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

    Florida sounds okay. The Caribbean even better.

    Perfect time to clean 1911's, dry fire and browse the Addicts Classifieds.

    13 inches of snow here in southern West Virginia. I measured this at 5pm. I'm looking forward to selling some snow plows on Tuesday. :) Monday is a normal day off for us so I'm enjoying not having to fight it.

    Hopefully you guys aren’t part of the wide reaching power outages. I just saw the footage on the news. Good luck out there!

    Just got power back at 3:34 am last night. What a cold ride. Many thousands still without power. We got 13" of wet snow & lost power, & our cell phones lost all service as well.
    Hopefully the weather will warm up & help the Duke energy guys restore power for everyone.
    On a lighter note we had our Thanksgiving turkey Sunday for our Family member who was out of town for Thanksgiving yum. :)

    Chime in you fellow addicts when you get your power back on.
    Our prayers go out to everyone still in the dark & cold, hope you get warm real soon.
    It's good to be back :D
