Default Snowpocolypse!!

Soo.. I live in the Greenville area in SC, and we are supposed to be getting the worst snow/ice storm we've had in long time! I've heard everything from 8-12"!! I am from TN and the last time I sawsnow like that I was in single digits of age!

Is anyone else in this storm's path?

I'm kind of freaking out! We have plenty of food and whatnot but power outages are expected and that is NOT GOOD for our family. Not only do we have the hedgie, but I have two little boys, 2 dogs, a cat, rats, several reptiles and tarantulas! Praying and keeping my fingers crossed that our power stays on!

We're supposed to be clipped by it tomorrow. I live in western Kentucky, and we haven't gotten much more than an inch of snow this year.

Do you have any hand warmers for back up heat for your animals, especially your hedgie? They sell them at Walmart in the sports/hunting section and at most sporting goods stores. If you still have time it might be worth the peace of mind to pick up a few. =]

I'll be praying for you all! Hope you stay warm and safe. ^_^

Get a bunch of those Little Hottie hand warmers and make sure you have tons of blankets. Good luck!

Ahh! I really hope your power stays on! I'm up in northern MD and we're expected to get around 20 inches! I've stocked up on handwarmers, plus I have several water bottles put aside in case I need to make hot water bottles too. Luckily our power lines are underground, but it's still good to take a snowstorm seriously.

Good luck, keep us updated and hope you stay safe and warm

I have plenty of handwarmers, blankets, and even insulated boxes that he will fit in that are left over from reptile and tarantula shipments! I'd just rather not have to deal with it!

We actually used a couple handwarmers today as his health check at the vet was today, and it was snowing outside when we took him. I've had them for a couple of years but they are still working great!

And lilsurfer- 20"?!!! Holy moly! Three inches is a big deal here, haha!

Probably a bit late now, but here's a thread with tips on heating during blackouts.

We are with you in greenville! Sitting here watching the snow fall. Beautiful. Lots of blankets and if you have a gas fireplace - that will heat your house if the power goes out. Also, your body hear can always help with warming a hedgie! We will move dexter next to the fireplace if we lose power. We are praying we don't though! Storm will be over by tomorrow.

Our neighbor has a fireplace, and a food truck with a generator that has heat, haha! It is beautiful day, all the pups around here are loving it, save my rat terrier, haha! Our 4yo keeps asking to build a snowman but we are waiting for more snowfall.
