1. We are expecting that here all through the upper Midwest.

I went to the store, even though I could have skipped it. There was very little bread in the store.

Stay safe, everyone.

3. Where I am in Kansas

we are expecting a little freezing rain, 1/4 -1/2 inch with 2 inches of sleet then around 4 -6 inches of snow. I have been outside working madly today (and the last few days as well) on the farm to keep up with this big weather change from the upper 40's to the 60's we have been having.

Headed back out now as it gets dark to finish cleaning out one of the barns. It is very cold and windy, wow the wind.

Once I get the horses in and the goats fed as well I am inside for the duration of the night. Tomorrow we start it all over again!


Everyone stay home and relax. Stock up and do not go out.

10. People always talk about doctors, cops, soldiers, nurses not getting days off

..nobody ever talks about livestock operators. Goats, cattle, swine, horses -- they need food, water, barn cleaning , and possibly meds every day. Whether it's Christmas; 73 and sunny; of 17 inches of blowing snow falls over an inch of ice.

I wish you all the best. Stay safe.

20. It isn't a big deal it is just life.

So far it has been a bust here but that is good. The ground is covered with sleet and that is all.

Before I got the farm I was a 24/7 mother and before and during part of that I was a nurse and always had to work at least half of the holidays (night shift so I could still celebrate with family) and before that I worked at the zoo that also never goes a day without full staff for any reason. It is just the way it is. I am very happy to be able to do this in my later life . All of these things were rewarding enough to do it.

11. Flying or driving?

If flying, late Tuesday might be OK. The models are all over the road on how much snow we are getting. Low end 6"; high end 17".

9. It's going to be very ugly in STL and other parts of the state

With all of the rain we have had, freezing temps will be disasterous.

15. Nixon declared Mo a disaster area.

We are getting some sleet and snow but it's still above freezing here. Snow really won't start until around noon. I will try and get everything done by then so I can just sit and watch it?

16. Stock up so you can avoid driving

One of the worst things about MO is the ice. We get snow, the sun comes out it gets just above freezing and it freezes overnight. There's no telling what the next few days will bring.

14. Entire state of Iowa included in the warning.

In my corner, we are expecting a little ice (up to .10" and 5-10 inches of snow.

I guess winter has finally arrived for real.
