I'm sitting here watching Making it in America and they just reported on this huge storm getting ready to hit up north. I live here in TN (been here about 11 years) and the most snow I have seen since moving here is about 4 inches. I was wondering if those of you that are from there and are use to the snow, are you worried about this particular storm? What are you planning to do while snowed in? How long does it usually take to "dig out" after something like this. Just curious.
You just need to respect it...mainly hunker down and have plenty of bottled water, batteries, and food, drink to make it through... Biggest concern is if power goes out. Had a ice storm in 2008. All trees were damaged, broken limbs, downed trees...It was a mess! Power was out for a week for us, up to three weeks for others...which led to alot of mayhem. Nothing but the buzz of generators and chainsaws went on for weeks!
Usually it takes a good 2 days to get shoveled out good, roads cleared and back into the swing of things. But if power is out in a large swath...all bets are off. The other thing is to stay home and off the roads. Concerned...to a point. If you are stocked up on food and the other necessities I mentioned...you just wait it out and pray the power stays on.
we've got a good 15 inches at least at my house in Manchester, NH. We're still under blizzard conditions until at least 1pm and there will be no mail delivery today. We're expecting another 3-6 inches before it stops. Depending on when the plow guys for the condo get here and how much drifting is done, I expect to be dug out by tonight.
