Our blizzard watch is now a blizzard warning for tomorrow. I'm still seeing 12-18 inches on WC. The tractors are ready to go. There are a lot of trees around here so I'm going to set up, and run the generator today. I'm also going to pick up enough fuel line so that I can syphon gas from our vehicles in case of a prolonged power outage.
