Looks like our area is likely to get hit pretty hard with ice storms and then heavy snow. Cincinnati does not do well with the white death and it is the type of storm where power outages are common.

So, if you don't hear from us, we're digging out.

I think later tommorow is when we are going to get really hit with some reallymassive amount of that white stuff. I heard that about a 100 miles North of me they got 14" yesterday. Now, that's something that will do some slowing the traffic down. :D

I here ya' Custer, I'm going to opt out of work tomorrow if the roads are bad. I hate driving with people who can't handle snow.
Wish I could do that, packing an overnight bag just in case I have to stay at work because of call offs.

I just really hope the snowplow driver doesnt hit the building again this year.

STNA, basically the same thing, but I do less and get paid more.

Bad thing was last year we had a salt truck with dumping salt and the driver didn't realize with the thing up to dump the salt he would hit the overhang for the ambulance entrance.

Went a good 5 to 6 feet before he stopped, ripped up the pipes for the sprinkler syster which casued the fire alarms to go off and on all night. Had to pull a 16 hour shift that night becasue some people were afraid to drive in the snow.

The funny thing is were are not supposed to be allowed to call off due to weather, becasue we work in a medical facility.

The reason I asked because the wife's a CNA and she runs into the same problems you mentioned. Since it's started snowing she always takes extra clothes. She works at a nursing home. They don't make you stay, but they're very nice people to work for and the wife don't mind helping them out in a pinch. Plus the time and a 1/2 is nice too.

It is hitting right now. Started right at 7:00 a.m.

I am at work. Luckily, I am off tomorrow.

All of our drivers are heading out. They are under instructions to come back if their best assessment is that it is too dangerous. I am betting most will be back by noon and we may have to send folks home early.

I'm leaving at 12 today or maybe even earlier due to this stuff. It seems the salt put on the streets last night was not doing a complete job because of all the rain earlier.

At least that's how it was on my side of town.

You know what is crazy, they say we're going to most likely break a record with this snow fall that goes back to 1917?

We rarely get winter storms like this here, it's usually north or east of us.

Seems to be moderating here at the moment but it has not stopped snowing.
