    yeah Top, up here in Fayetteville, they are saying 5-8 inches of snow coming our way. It kind of perplexes me with the temps still in the 50's and rain still pouring down like crazy. Oh well, that's what they say is heading here.........it just means more wood in the fireplace.

    We have snow on the ground. Rain, to sleet, to snow, in less than 20 minutes. As long as we don't lose our electricity I don't care. We called the kids and told them not to start if there was ice on the roads.

    Johnny, we ended up with about 3 inches in fattyville. I am in Greers Ferry now. It was iced covered all the way to Huntsville, but smooth sailing after that.
    Wouldn't it be a great day to be catfishing on "the fairy" now??? NOT:tounge_out:

    Don't know what made us do it but we decided to buy three of those round sleds for the kids as an extra Christmas present. We put them out in the carport with bows on them, so when they opened the door this morning to check out the snow, they were waiting for them. They've been out playing in the yard most of the day. What a great, peaceful Christmas inside the house lol.
    We're supposed to have friends coming tomorrow, but I'm not sure how many will make it. With the temperature at 16f it doesn't seem like it will be thawing much.

    mac, I noticed you wrote that last post at 1:21am and mentioned getting another inch of snow??? I am up in Kansas City now and we got about 3 inches during the night. Do you know if Fayetteville got any snow last night?
