    Definitely a solid 4" coming I'm sure. Just cooked up some andouille, garlic, onion, peppers and mostaccioli in red sauce. I'll freeze that in two 1-gallon bags and have thawed for whenever we're...

    A fresh 4" snow coming Monday night! Glad something came up at home to occupy and overwhelm my mind recently, because the anticipation was killing me. Need to refocus on this and start packing.

    HUGE comeback on the temps for earlier in the week! Looking real good with some crisp air! Still not terrible after the weekend warmup but that can still change.

    The anticipation is building up.

    Some are good and some are junk. But even the good ones have a pretty weak connection where the two leg pieces slide together. I could see that buckling real easy.
