    I am NOT looking forward to it. More and more I want my own farm. I don't want to have to go to the farm in those temps, and w/the snow to care for my animals.

    Oh well that's... Awesome. We're forecasted for 4-8" of snow, and temps in the - 20's by Friday night. I had DD in the middle of Hurricane Sandy 5 years ago at the same gestation I'll be at during this snow hurricane. I'm not rooting for a repeat.

    I am living in that storm! Extremely cold for our area. WIND makes it worse than worse.....it's 4 this AM, winds & storm coming fast. I've been hauling water for days & days as we haven't gotten above freezing enough to allow hoses & spigots to be used. These areas are NOT prepared for these extremes so our roads will be issues for several days as only the main roads & bridges get attention. Rest of us just have to bunker down, stay put.:idunno

    I'm ok with hay, feed, shelters....house is ok & plenty of food, water. BUT it is NOT FUN!!!! My generator is in place in case I need to plug in to the meter base plug in (electric co installed) that will keep house functioning -- mainly the well pump!!!

    Boots & extra carharts at door....I hate cold & snow.

    My farm is located just on the "line" on the weather map that goes from 3-6" into 6-10" -- not wanting any of it!! :old:th

    I think it's a pretty coastal storm, you might be far enough inland! NH is going to be hit much worse than VT, and our seacoast is going to be hit much harder than I am!
