Good morning, Hive! I’m up insanely early because I rode into work with my dad this morning so I wouldn’t have to brave the ice.
In our area, we are predicting about 1-2 inches of ice and we’ve probably almost made it to an inch. The roads aren’t too bad, though. They put a lot of salt down, and that turned it back into slush, which then re-froze, but at least it’s textured ice instead of smooth!
Go ahead and share what’s predicted and what you’ve gotten so far. Any snow days? 🙂

We are expecting 1-2 inches of ice and our county is surrounded by counties under a level 1 snow emergency. I am not braving the drive to work because my car sucks on ice so instead am waiting for FI to wake up and drive me in. We work together, so it is no big deal. I am secretly hoping my boss (FIs grandfather) will call us and tell us to take the day off work because so many people drive an hour +
Good luck out in the ice and snow ladies.

@Miss Mitzie: Oh wow! Make sure your FI drives carefully. I hope you guys had the salt trucks out last night.

Finally heard that the university I attend is closed for the day! It’s always the last one in the area (and least likely) to close. The local weather is describing the current conditions as “light freezing rain ice pellets.” It’s definitely supposed to get worse though.

I have an awesome boss who just called and said we aren’t working until 10:30, but call me because we may not be working at all. Well ladies, I get to stay in the safety of my home, but I am still wishing all the rest of you who don’t good luck!

@EvaBostonTerrier: I used to go to a high school like that. Every time the weather got bad we made the news because we were still open :P.
@Miss Mitzie: It’s great that you get to stay inside!

Ugh. We’ve had a couple inches so far, and are expecting it to snow until early morning tomorrow. I think at the end of this they’re saying somewhere between 6 inches and like… 20!
Unfortunately, I live in Eastern NY and this is no big thing for them so I still have to truck up to work (which is already a 50 minute drive… UGH!).

I guess for once I’m lucky to be so far north! We’re not supposed to get any ice, just fluffy snow, and that’s a frequent enough occurrence that I don’t mind driving in it. No such thing as a day off though, sadly.

In Texas, I was awakened by pelting ice/rain/snow this morning, which is a pretty rare occurrence here. Although the weather definitely isn’t as bad as it is up north, it’s still pretty bad for Texas winter weather. So much so that they have closed pretty much everything in my area. For those of you who do have to drive in bad weather–please be safe!

Snow on top of ice here and I still have to drive to work in alittle while. Plus, I will be doing it in a rear-wheel-drive truck, ugh. So not looking forward to this.

We were supposed to get hit with some ice last night but its dry and clear here in NoVA! So I voted “what snow?” 🙂
Please be safe bees affected by the storm!!

It hasn’t hit Maine yet (it will by 4 PM), but they are measuring how much snow we are supposed to get in feet, not inches. Where I live is supposed to get 14 to 20 inches. Yuck…

Here in central Illinois it’s not the safest! ALL schools in central Illinois have closed, we are supposed to get like 20 inches of snow by tomorrow. A lot of the school already closed for tomorrow as well to be on the safe side. I woke up at 520am to go to work, and then my boss called and said don’t risk it, and call tomorrow morning before you come in, I doubt we will be open. Our whole city is practically closed down. I hope everyone stays safe! 🙂
