Pennsylvania Discussion, News and Weather • Friends in Safe Places

March 17, 2017 rickdun 0

Didn’t know where to put this so I put it here:

There’s a new song out by Chad Prather and Steve “Mudflap” McGrew called “friends in safe places”, it follows the music of Garth Brooks’ song “friends in low places”.

I tried to copy the video of the song to here but won’t let me do it. You got to google this song and lisen to it, it’s great, I rolled around on the ground with tears in my eyes. The wife thought I was taking a fit.

You got to hear it.

Been like this since this morning.
Six degrees with the windchill.

So where are you located?

Perhaps I am reading into it too much, but it reads like there was some big collective sigh of relief coming out of NYC . . . nevermind those living to the West.

We only got about 5″ but it’s snowing and blowing now, I think they call it a wrap around plus we’re getting snow off lake erie now.

They’re calling for another 3″ to 5″ over night, it’s 18 degrees, 20 mph winds, wind chill -2 degrees, winds out of the northwest. We didn’t get as much as they were calling for.

Throw another log on the fire and pop a top.

Im in A, it sucks! Its weather like this that makes me want to hibernate through it, but I’ve got to keep in good shape. I won’t be going to Jiu Jitsu today as the roads are not in proper condition for driving. So I will just be staying home and doing some working out at home. Fortunately I do have enough food in the fridge to last me the day so I will not have to go into my reserves, but I should’ve stocked up on more prior to all this snowfall.

I’ve been chuckling over this all day. Schools officially closed here in NY by edict of his immenseness the &%&*%**^ Cuomo. Shut the schools down statewide since we might get some snow. Really? We have not had serious snow here in years, minus the 7′ that fell in Buffalo a few years back. None of our winters are anything like they used to be and we are in the prime lake effect region. We are used to having serious snow so 20″ really is not a big deal. Sure, the wind could kick up, it might force people to slow down a bit. It won’t make people think to prepare ahead of time and I can only imagine how many generators, gallons of milk, and loaves of bread were sold. Likely cases of water too. These days the news and those in charge hype every little thing to the point of idiocy while paying no attention to important things. So, I will enjoy the roads to myself hopefully as I make my daily commute to work. I won’t have time to worry about a few snowflakes. Real or Liberal… :dots:

If it impacts NYC, then it is news.
As for the rest of us, well, they do not pay attention to what happens outside of NYC.

Two weeks ago, they got snow and it made the national news. A few days later, we got even more snow.
Not so much as a peep.

I was reading an article earlier on the storm and they quoted a lady saying they would be fine as long as the power didn’t go out. :blink: Ummmm…….. :huh:
I guess that is their version of prepared.

More pretty colors on a map. Same horrible forecast: Screen Shot 2017-03-13 at 10.19.17 PM.png I’m in the Harrisburg 12 – 20″ part of the map. :(:(:( It’s already started falling and sticking.

The mom of our daughter’s boyfriend works for PEMA (Penna Emergency Management Assoc). She’s on the emergency staff for this storm. She came over for dinner, tonight & we invited her to use our spare bedroom for the night, but she’s staying at a local hotel so they can get her & other staff to the PEMA office via ‘shuttle’ tomorrow morning (which could be the National Guard, if needed). So interesting to hear what goes on ‘behind-the-scenes’ for a storm of this magnitude. -k

Ugh, Just checked Weatherboy Weather. We’re in the deepest area, 1-2′ (a big range) Up to 30″ in some pockets. For a time it will fall 2-5″ per hour! 40 MPH winds. Thundersnow.

It looks like the changeover to sleet will be within a half hour of me, but at the moment we are on the all-snow side.

My Berkey is pretty full. (and I’ve got several cases of bottled water.) Wash is done. Dishwasher run. The generator ran tonight so it is working. Cell phone, iPad is charged. I’ve already stocked the fireplace and brought in wood.

Oh-boy. Stay safe, everybody.

I’m in A. Of course. (I’m doing my best Eeyore impression.)

I’m in the middle of having the interior of my house painted, getting ready to put it on the market. So of course everything is in the middle of the kitchen, covering every horizontal surface at the moment. I’m hoping they get enough done that I can put some, if not all, back tonight and tomorrow. I can’t even make a meal at the moment. Went to the grocery for yogurt etc so we have that, apples and cheese and crackers, if nothing else!

Generator is working properly, wood ready for fireplace insert. One more load of clothes to go and then they are caught up. Filled the chicken’s feed in case I can’t get out there tomorrow. The dog played with every dog in the neighborhood so she’s worn out.

i guess I’m as ready as I’ll every be. Just glad that this should be the last storm of the season.

ReadyMom, it sounds like your son is the smart one of the family.

The Fed. govt. (DC) will probably be shut down, seems like they shut down if they call for 2″ or more + they get paid for being off and not having to use a vacation day, no wonder people hate the government, I guess they never heard of leave without pay.

CastIron, that’s the only thing I hate about winter, having to take an ax to the pond for the cows to get water, fell in 2 years ago up to my knees, you want to talk about cooooooooooold, took me two days to thaw out.

The wife’s business trip to DC area has been canceled.

A few years back, the ice broke under one of the dogs into the brook. Could not get out. In I went, snowshoes and all.
That is when I really came to appreciate wool socks. Feet were soaked in cold water. But even as I humped it back to the house, the warm despite wet properties of wool shone through.

I’m not worried, because I’m ready. Just worried for my sanity, after I see it all on the ground. I’m a blue-sky-palm -tree, warm-water kinda gal .

Where are you? Doing anything different?

Then what the heck are you doing in cold country :? (teasing)

I’m a good wife! Although my husband has to endure a TON more moaning & groaning each year, during the cold months. Our son is currently playing soccer in Texas. I’ve been threatening to go down & set up housekeeping during training season, which is our cold Jan-March months. He’ll most likely be sitting next to the pool, while we’re digging out. :bored: -k
