How is everyone preparing for the ice storm/handling the snow? Anyone have to cancel or rearrange their Christmas plans? My aunt and nephew are stuck in Arizona trying to get back to SeaTac, they were supposed to drive down here after but it looks like that's up in smoke. Be careful out there, especially if you're driving!

I went grocery shopping at 7am today, just in case the storm gets bad, you just never know


Thankfully we traveled to see family early. Got back on Tuesday, finished up our shopping on Wednesday, and now we’re in for the duration. SO cold today.


Same! Avoiding the holiday travel craziness is the way to go.


My plan was always to be in the house drinking hot cocao with the family. Be safe everyone.


We are not lol. Battened down the hatches and have the heat almost all the way up. Thankfully I didn't plan to leave the city for Christmas. It's supposed to get worse this afternoon.

Ugh. Fortunately not traveling too far, but I'm NOT looking forward to this storm. I still have a million things to wrap up before the holiday and no time to deal with weather nonsense.

Luckily for us its snow and rain mix, with some sleet, changing over to a ton of rain so not terrible like others. Wind might be a big factor. Luckily we are not traveling except to the grocery store (which im dreading bc the stores have been packed and it takes me 40 minutes to get in and out of the parking lot lately) and family doesn't live too too far (2 hrs away).

I left just in time. Flew in to Georgia to see my family earlier this week. Its 45 degrees and every one is complaining about it being cold. They have no idea.

We’re in TX.

Where it’s also 10 degrees. So much for that idea.

Not leaving the house lol, we've battened down the hatches and are just trying to keep warm. This is weather that I have not really encountered and don't want to confront the elements lol
