    Well most of us have a four day holiday weekend and by the sound of the weather report it wont be fit to get out doors.

    They are calling for blizzard like condition in our area starting somtime tomorrow with 12-15" of snow and 40mph winds around Topeka.

    I wish all of your family and friends make safe travel during the Holiday weekend.
    I have a Son trying to get back For Christmas from out of state flying into Kci around 3pm tomorrow.Its not looking good so far.But maybe the weather man is wrong.

    It will break the wife's heart if he cant make it in.

    Tom, I hope your boy makes it in safe and sound.
    We have a nephew driving in from South Dakota tomorrow to be with his wife, and kids for Christmas. That's gonna make for a slow, white knuckle drive, but I know it won't stop him.. :eek:oooh:
    Having a white Christmas will be cool, as long as no one get hurt.

    Everyone be safe.

    I hope for both of them to arrive safe. My inlaws came today and Mom is driving out from Dodge tomorrow. That will be a slow drive from there with the wind are predicting.

    I wouldn't mind the snow if it would stay off the streets:big_smile:.

    Topeka seems to have a real big problem when it comes to clearing the snow off.They usally just let it melt or have the traffic beat it down.

    I hope you can get out Kyle and catch a Christmas cat.

    Currently, (6:00) 45 mph winds. No rain, sleet, or snow. Daughter is a Level 1 trauma nurse at Wesley in Wichita. She had to go in today. Yuck. Good day to stay inside and tie some flys or some drop shot sinkers. LOL Wife's sister is a nurse in Lawrence, she just texx'ed us, they have snow and the power is out in parts of Lawrence. Stay warm everyone.

    Thanks JD, and a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    He's flying to Dallas right now from the west coast gets in there around 11am and then into KCi around 2pm so we are hoping it holds off for a little while.

    Jsut rain here right now and the winds are picking up.
    Hoping it will miss us but not wishing this storm on anyone else either.

    Be safe out there..

    We are in the 6-10 inch band, my baby is 38, so there will be no sleds under the tree and I can do without the snow.:smile2::smile2::smile2: Hope all the relatives make it in safely and you all enjoy the Holidays. Stay safe and Merry Christmas to one and all!!!:wink:

    I just got a text from Aaron and he's delayed at Dallas.He's been on the plane for over a hr and they are deicing the plane for the 2nd time.

    And now its starting to snow big flakes here in Topeka on top of ice.

    We are just starting to ice up a little here on the elevated surfaces, streets should follow in the next couple of hours. The forecast for later is for big time snow. Tiffany's dad is driving in from South Carolina, were hoping he gets in soon.

    The snow is really coming down hard at times now. My house sits back off of the road about 400 feet, and there has been a couple of times in the last hour that I haven't been able to see it.:sad2:

    Aaron got to our house at 9pm last night after a he!! of a ride from KCI airport.
    He left the west coast (Ca) at 6am yesterday for a trip that should of only been about 3.5 hrs and it turned into 15hrs.

    But were just glad he made it back safe.

    He said driving back from KCi there was times he couldn't even see the road with the blowing snow.
