4. That storm passed by just south of us here in the Twin Cities.

A light dusting of snow on the sidewalk this morning. Looks like it's picking up steam, though, heading east.

7. I've made it through enough storms of the century in my time.

I'm sure I'll survive this one, regardless of how breathless and excited the media are for it to snow in January.

I think they are predicting 1-3 inches. I've got bread, milk and TP.

39. Latest I heard is that we are just getting a trace here.

The whole thing basically missed us. We had some flurries today, but no accumulation. Mostly conversational snow. You know, when you look out the window and say "It's snowing". Nothing sticking to the roads.

40. It has gotten colder, and is sticking to the roads now

At least it is in the suburbs. Where are you coming from? And how are you getting here? They expect travel delays in the AM. The DC area is not good in the snow, we don't get enough to be really experienced at it. The concern that is usual around here is ice.

19. We're getting the worst of it

This is standard fare for New England so no big. I'll pick up 3 gallons of milk, 6 loaves of bread and 4 dozen eggs on the way home.

I'm only pissed that we're flying out Wednesday night so it would have been nice if the blizzard hit after we left. Then again, I don't want to come back and have to deal with frozen 2' of snow.

It looks like the Pocono Mtns in NE PA will get about 8 to 12 inches of the white stuff. DH has two snow throwers and an ATV with a plow on it.

30. Day 3 - Supplies are dwindling and heat is low. I fear a mutiny amongst the men.

We've been able to fend off the legions of wights and their White Walker overlords, but I fear that our defenses cannot hold for much longer. It seems that winter storm Juno will finally be the end of us.
