Itsa gonna snow--dadgummit. 12 to 18 inches in our mountains. 6 to 12 west of Charlotte. Here's the dodgy part. Depending on the WX system track it could be snow (doesn't bother me), sleet (still not much problem), freezing rain (Oh no!)...OR a mixture of all. It is the freezing rain that has me worried! That means power lines down, people without heat. Ice storms ain't funny. Snow? One can deal with it. Sleet, too. You can even drive on it. Streets with ice on 'em. NO! There's little that can cope with that. Eh........maybe chains. Still a huge risk. So with all the parts of this storm, I'm hopin' for snow. With that, I can still build a fire in the stove, cook weiners and beans, run a genny.
