    Exclamation Major ice storm across parts of the South and Ohio Valley starting Thursday

    If you are in the dark purple zone on this map you should consider preparing for power outages that may last for days. Winter Storm Cleon's final act will be a major ice storm across parts of the South and Ohio Valley starting Thursday - here's a freshly updated forecast & analysis here:

    Boy, oh boy, oh boy!... Its simply amazing that here I sit in damn near 80 temperatures, and yet within mere hours it'll be below freezing with ice galore heading my way...

    We're in the suburbs of Memphis and tho, I, personally always have my doubts on it actually being near as severe as our meteorologists predict..nonetheless I must say that ALL OF OUR local grocery stores are ALREADY selling out as we speak, of every known want/necessity known to man..

    I guess we'll hunker down and just have to wait and see just what will end up coming our way

    **P.S.
    Soooooooooooooooo very glad that my wonderful hubby bought that nice, big generator that was I was so against him buying a few months back..lol

    We'll be getting snow with winter storm Cleon. I'd rather have 6 inches of snow than a half inch of ice any day!

    Stay safe my friends!

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    I posted this earlier today on the Midwest States thread.

    'Big ice threat' for parts of the Midwest as storm churns on

    By Daniel Arkin and Elizabeth Chuck, NBC News

    A “big ice threat” could cause power outages across parts of the Midwest over the next two days as a storm that dumped as much as 30 inches of snow in some locations churns east.

    “It could be significant with lots of power outages,” Kevin Noth, a lead meteorologist with the Weather Channel, told NBC News. “The big ice threat will be as far south as Dallas and central Texas all the way up to Paducah, Kentucky, maybe Memphis will be hit, too. Little Rock, Arkansas, will be in the thick of it.” ...

    they've been talking about ice storms here in Canada for days ... got a little bit but have been lucky so far

    multiple days of power outages is scary

    I've done it but it was in the summer - I can't imagine having to do it in the winter

    stay safe everyone!

    We're expecting ice. Everyone and their dogs were out at dollar general earlier getting dogfood and basics.

    Do you remember the Great Ice Storm of 1998? Oh my! May you all be spared.

    I've notified my friends in So. Illinois to be prepared. They're pretty good about being weather-ready, but still, never hurts to message them.

    Now, I'm in So Ca, and we're under a frost advisory - below freezing temps for us for the next few nights, which is a *huge* deal here...tbh, I'm LOVIN' it, but most folks aren't. LOL.

    Best-

    ETA: Had to add the response from my text..."thanks, personal weather lady. We can count on you!" LOL...see, they live out in the very rural area, and don't get television, and don't have cable. They do have internet, but only one computer, and 6 kids...so...I make sure they know what's coming into the area via texts. So now I'm apparently the weather lady for them. ROFL.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    I'm unhappy to report that it has started in Southern Arkansas. The mad bread rush is on...Wal-Mart isn't even putting it on the shelves, it's in the middle of the aisle.

    The ice won't reach us until tomorrow but let me just say; my body is aching badly as well as this cold is WET and bone chilling. To da Core. I dont like it!!

    I had to turn up the furnace to like 75 today. I'm not comfortable at anything less. What is your thermostat usually set to? I'm curious what everyone's usual setting is during the daytime.

    The temp has dropped 20* since five this morning. We have hit our high of 63*, and now we are at 43*. Yes, I am hating this. LOL

    Ice headed our way. Going out today was crazy too many people evry where. We are as ready as we can be. Last time we had ice we were without power for 4 days. Fingers crossed.

    All of you are in my thoughts! We are just barely going to miss it here in Northeast Louisiana although there may be some sleet for tomorrow. We already have a little rain and the temp has dropped almost 20 degrees in just over an hour.

    Take care!
