SO. ILL. - Thus far, the Weather Channel hasn't named the storm that's headed our way across southern Illinois (as well as Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky and beyond), but since it's the Midwest and doesn't really involve Chicago, they probably don't care...flyover country, you know.

However, we flyover country peeps take winter weather advisories very seriously, and if you haven't already gotten your alert on your phone, here's what's coming your way starting tomorrow (right after the butt-biting cold we're going to experience tonight - Tuesday, November 13 - overnight and into tomorrow). Break out the down comforters...here's what the National Weather Service out of Paducah are saying about this weather event, with our readership counties highlighted in bold.

We've already experienced a brief power outage for whatever reason, as well as two internet outages, but that's on Shawneelink. While we have backup internet options, the power outages might occur if power lines get heavily iced and go down. If that happens, posting will be intermittent. Since we dumped our Fecesbook page back in August, we urge you to check out our three remaining social networking pages, Twitter, Minds.com and Gab.com. We can post there from our handhelds and will update you on conditions if we can.
