    2-4 inches is what we're hearing....may be a conservative number.

    The Upstate of South Carolina looks to be forecast for 7" from this storm.

    The Upstate does not need weather like this, it is midwest type weather,
    and perhaps the storm will turn west. Go away bad weather.

    It was 65 here today. Typical nice Upstate fall weather.

    As a very pessimistic, conspiracy theorist/doomer/prepper,
    I always look for the absolute worse in everything.
    If something bad can happen it will,
    and something bad will happen, before something good.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    AVOID THE GROID/GHOUL
    In honour of the brave Whites in South Africa,
    as they fight against their genocide.

    I pray for the White race in South Africa,
    with every prayer, and so should you,
    if you pray.

    Regards to all deplorables.

    And next week I'm working in the area where the map is showing 21 inches of snow and up. Lordy........
    I've got ice cleats; looks like a set of snow shoes might be in order.
    Ugh.

    Ugh. I'm in that white triangle that doesn't have a number. Two weeks ago we were without power for 4 days. I've spent all day thinking about Icelandic chickens, and am working on the Fedco order.
    Been reading for years, just now starting to talk.

    Hold on to your hat mudlogger! Looks like we're in for it!

    Off to Amazon to look for snowshoes. Been having a feeling we might need them this year.

    Egads, now the weather folks are upcoming our rain changes Friday to 100%, with the possibility of 4" - 6". Thanks heavens it won't be snow or ice, but it'll be falling on areas that flooded recently, and the ground still hasn't dried out all the way. Nasty winter is shaping up.

    It's been down graded to 12" inches now, this weather front is part of the wild swings of the jetstream and it going to dump snow and ice a many states.

    Just checked the forecast on the NWS site. Nothing about big snow for up here, "yet". Just a few flurries.......well, it's doing that now. THAT we can deal with. No accumulation to speak of.

    still a bit early to be accurately predicting but they're calling it UGLY beginning early sunday and 12" south of us in the "upstate" (of South carolina) with mountain counties on the TN/NC line will see "significant effects" - we'll see . . .

    Just received an AccuWeather alert for The Upstate.

    It stated to expect an extended weather event,
    of ice and snow this weekend.

    This is so messed up. This type of weather doesnt
    usually occur here, and its weather that is midwestern
    in nature, like what Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska usually get.

    My AO is 75 miles southwest of Assville NC.
    Usually get weather very similar, however not as severe,
    as the mountain range north of here, moderates the weather
    to some extent.

    Need to get some Makers Mark, and a few other grocery items,
    however ready for the storm.

    It is simply too cold. Davis Vantage Vue weather station
    is showing 40 degress, with a rapidly dropping barometer.

    Heat just came back on.

    Ready for the spring.

    As a very pessimistic, conspiracy theorist/doomer/prepper,
    I always look for the absolute worse in everything.

    If something bad can happen it will,
    and something bad will happen, before something good.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    They have backed off the ice forecast here.

    Of course, every dumbass who's generator has been down for months wants it fixed today.

    I hope that weather doesn't make it's way up to Vermont. It's been right around freezing and cloudy here since before Thanksgiving.
    Maybe a few hours of sunshine here and there over the last 3 weeks.
    Wish we'd go back to that mild weather where people are wondering if we'll have a brown Christmas.

    Noooooo! Not that I'm a huge snow fan, but I'd MUCH rather have a foot of snow on the ground than a foot of mud. We never have managed to train the dogs to wipe their feet when they come in! Plus, the barnyard is horrible... poor Prince has needed a milkhouse shower via the hose almost every night after rounding the cows up to bring them in.

    But I sure wish we'd see a week of Indian Summer!

    Someone down the road a ways blew up/burned down their garage today futzing with a generator. At least it was a detached garage and didn't take the house with it.

    Hubby canceled his flight home from OH tomorrow, as he has to go back near the same area Sunday, and couldn't risk the weather canceling his flight out of PTI. So I will be in the 8" predicted of snow alone all weekend.

    #BREAKING @dukeenergy predicting winter storm will cause 500k power outages across the Carolinas. Team Coverage now on @wcnc


    Duke Energy projects winter storm could result in 500,000+ power outages
    December 7, 2018
    Share This Story

    Customers encouraged to prepare now for multi-day outages
    More than 8,700 workers are ready to respond once conditions are safe
    Company warns against using grills and other outdoor appliances inside homes for cooking or heating

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Duke Energy meteorologists today modeled the latest forecast for an approaching winter storm and project the heavy wet snow, sleet and freezing rain will result in approximately 500,000 power outages or more for homes and businesses in the Carolinas.

    "There remains a lot of uncertainty with this storm," said longtime Duke Energy chief meteorologist Nick Keener. "A slight change in the storm's track or in the temperature could result in fewer or even more outages, so everyone needs to be prepared."

    More than six inches of snow or a quarter of an inch of ice accumulation will cause branches to sag and trees to fall, bringing power lines down with them. Additionally, hazardous road conditions can result in vehicle accidents which further increase the risk for power outages as cars hit power poles and other electrical infrastructure.

    The company typically requires 12-24 hours to fully assess damage from a significant weather event, even while simultaneously restoring power. Winter storms can present additional challenges to moving personnel and equipment to hard hit areas.

    Widespread power outages expected

    Based on the current forecast, widespread, multiple-day power outages are expected for the Mountains, Foothills, Piedmont, Triad and Triangle areas of North Carolina and portions of Upstate South Carolina and customers should be prepared.

    Duke Energy has more than 8,700 line and tree workers, damage assessors and support personnel ready to respond. However, weather and travel conditions may be hazardous and challenging, and could delay damage assessment and restoration.

    Safety reminders

    With temperatures below freezing, customers should make a plan to move family members – especially those with special needs – to a safe, alternative location in case an extended power outage occurs. We urge everyone to be prepared and stay safe – and encourage other family members, friends and neighbors to do the same.

    If you plan to use a generator due to a power outage, follow the manufacturer's instructions to ensure safe and proper operation. Operate your generator outside. Never operate it inside a building or garage.

    Don't use grills or other outdoor appliances or equipment indoors for space heating or cooking, as these devices may omit carbon monoxide.

    Check and restock your emergency kits with flashlights, batteries, bottled water, non-perishable foods, medicines, etc. Also, ensure a portable, battery-operated radio, TV or NOAA radio is on hand.

    Stay away from power lines that have fallen or are sagging. Consider all lines energized as well as trees or limbs in contact with lines. Please report downed power lines to Duke Energy.

    If a power line falls across a car that you're in, stay in the car. If you MUST get out of the car due to a fire or other immediate life-threatening situation, do your best to jump clear of the car and land on both feet. Be sure that no part of your body is touching the car when your feet touch the ground.

    If you are driving and encounter emergency responders or other roadside work crews, remember to MOVE OVER, it's the law in North Carolina and South Carolina, and a good practice for all drivers.

    Reporting outages

    Customers who experience an outage during the storm have multiple ways on how to report it:

    Text OUT to 57801 (standard text and data charges may apply)
    Call the automated outage-reporting system at 800.POWERON for Duke Energy Carolinas customers and 800-419-6356 for Duke Energy Progress customers.
    Report an outage or view current outages online at www.dukeenergyupdates.com

    Duke Energy also will provide updates on its social media channels to keep customers informed if significant outages occur:

    We're getting that storm now, started raining last night, going to continue through tonight with absolutely no let up. We have had at least 3 inches so far, extensive areal flooding (thankfully we're on high ground), and they warned we could get as much as 8 inches total.

    We've just finished taking care of livestock, and despite wearing a heavy Carhartt jacket, two sweatshirts and a tank top, and literally three pairs of pants, I was soaked through. Thankfully we don't have below freezing temps, but this is a miserable storm. For all of you in its path, please take care of yourselves and get set for the conditions your local weather folks are warning about.
