Somebody tell me again why I live in the NorthEast?

Dec 11, 2008
It's 05:25.
We're having an ice storm & they say it is going to snow later.
The power has been out for hours (I'm at work, & we're on auxilary/generator)
Estimated time for restoration of power - to be determined.
All I wanted to do when I get home is go to bed - now, I have to make sure the critters are warm.
Crap.
Did I mention that I hate winter?


btw - the phones are out too, not that I care, since I leave mine off anyway.

Looks like you will be snuggling with some snakes when you get home!!! I feel your pain Harald. We have been getting pounded with snow here in the Midwest.....

I spent some childhood years in New York. I agree that winter storms are miserable and disheartening. I hope that you and the critters get warm soon.

I'm in PA, I hated that storm, I was suppose to have a snake shipped out that day! Screwed up my whole start of the breeding season :/
And what about the snow we got in Novemeber?!
I have lived here 18 years and I can't ever remember having snow in Novemeber!
It usually doesn't snow until late January!
I want to be warm

Maybe I'm misreading this, but are you planning to breed an animal that you are just getting shipped? I noticed you buying a lot of animals, do you practice quarantine? You might want to do some research on quarantine and the dangers involved in failing to do so.

I really wonder sometimes why I live in Iowa. I'm really starting to hate winter, it was fun as a kid. Most people around here are expecting one of the worst winters we've had in a long time. It doesn't help with the fact I'm stuck with a cast on my foot and crutches, little slippery for me to try to go out.

That's what I meant.. In getting her shipped out later, It is taking me longer to quarentine. Thus backing me up, not long, but backing up none the less.

Here is some interesting info, it's a good idea for everyone with reptiles to read.

Harald,

I sympathize with you even though our winter so far is nowhere near as bad as what you are going through.

I'll send warm, iceless, snowless thoughts your way.

Looks like the snow part of the storm crapped out, but things are a mess.
Power will be out til who knows when (a coworker talked to a guy on one of the repair crews, and was told his would probably be out til at least Monday)

My house is sitting at 65, so that isn't horrible. I could care less about lights & stuff as long as it doesn't get too cold for the critters to tolerate.
It is kind of creepy out there, though, lol
