    There are a number of alerts all over the state of Oregon today. Just passing along the link. Just passing it along. Stay safe.

    P.S. @TeacherSmurf is excited about a potential snow day. :s0112:

    Supposed to get some here in the valley around 7pm from forecasts, gonna go thru the night maybe 1-3 inches and temps as low as 32. Off and on thru the week mixed.

    usual slush but will likely cause some icy conditions on the roads.

    GRID FLEECE PULLOVER | TRU-SPEC : Tactically Inspired Apparel

    Good time to crack out the grid fleece since they say following few days will be as low as 25.

    This stuff works!

    First thing I learned as a teacher, we are just as excited about weather days as the kids are (as long as we don't have to go extra days.) :p

    Looks like Cave Junction SW OR USA is going to get some. Dunno yet how much. Will advise.

    Edited Extra Monday morning: We got just a dusting. All gone now except on some cars. That is all.

    I went out to put on my studs this afternoon in prep for my climb over the pass tomorrow...only to find that the guy sold me the wrong bolt pattern wheels. Depending on the roads I may end up having to pull the rubber off and put them on a set that DO fit. I'm really glad the guy could count to 4, but 4x100 and 4x130 make a world of difference.

    I'm so glad we put a generator in years ago. With that and a woodstove, the nasty winter storms are less troublesome.

    I just wheel-barrowed up enough wood for the night. From what I'm seeing, it shouldn't be too nasty of a spell, but it is better to be ready that not. :)

    Looks like it came and went for us. Got about a half inch overnight with less than an inch expected today.
