An "EPIC life threatening storm is ravaging the south" No kidding that what the weather channel called it. It has rained here for two days and the flights are canceled. There is a blizzard heading dangerously close to St. Louis. I hope to hell the weather clears long enough to take off tomorrow otherwise it is a long ass drive from Louisiana. If there is a blizzard you guys are screwed and I'm staying put. Cross your fingers.

LOL you southerners are cute. A blizzard to you is a standard snow storm to us on the east coast. 10 inches? Please. I ENJOY a drive with that little snow on the ground.

However, hope you make it here okay!! Keep us updated!

It appears that St. Louis in March will be just like Chicago in February! Yikes!

Prayers for safety for all you haunters and vendors traveling in this.

This is what I see affecting my business here as I am open year-round.
If the weatherman doesn't scare them first, then I might get to.
At 5:48 in Mount Carroll, Ill., northwestern illinois, it is raining small ice balls and has been for maybe an hour. It will be a slow night here. I hope. I am really tired, I started my new carreer today as a greeter for Wall-Mart, I never saw so many scary faces and overall weirdness walking on two legs as I did today! Maybe the impending forecast drug them all out from under those rocks?
So far nobody has recognised me as the greeter, I knew the wig and pink party dress would do the trick, no thank you, I don't do tricks. Like that.

Left St. Louis at 11:00am and made it back to wisconsin around 7pm. I stayed about 1 hour ahead of the storm. Now, remember what they were saying about Chicago and it's weather....

The show was great, the food at the restaurants was great, the bars were great, the rain on saturday sucked! I'm watching the snow fall in green bay as I type this. Travel safe to all those in St. Louis .

Keep those lips working smooth, even after cold wind ripples across them to much.
I think most of us were not watching the weather forecasts because the recent sunny and warm weather sucker-punched our brains into too much wishfull thinking.

Not sure if that was correct. We are leaving the show early afternoon. Hope there isn't too much here. The prediction earlier was 1-3 inches and more north.

I have to agree about us southerners and the snow we don't get a lot of it if any at all. But I also remember the first tornado watch I was in up north and you guys went ape crazy looking for places to hide and looking out the windows. We get so many of those during out storm season until they say its on the ground and outside your window we don't stop working. Its all what you get used too.

For me, seeing the snow was nice. It had been a long time since I had even seen any, other than on TV. :)

Ewww a record of two whole inches hits St. Louis! I really doubt that caused major problems for anyone or delayed any flights out today. It just seems alot of people on here are very sore they couldnt make the show or thats it came to St. Louis this year.?! Grow up people!

If that was pointed in my direction Damon then you have it all wrong. I simply was saying what the weather channel had said and as Grimley posted they were calling it an Epic Storm.

I don't predict weather and im sure grimley wasn't either, if you read my whole post i was watching because we did have a very ugly set of storms hit near us on friday and another set on saturday which is when i posted what i did.

Tornado's freak me out no matter where i live north or south iv'e been in both places, their not a joke when it comes to destroying lives. In The south we have no basements which just makes you more a sitting duck when it does hit you.

As for being sore i couldn't make the show, i didn't make the show because i am preparing to move into a new house and choose not to leave my wife with all the packing duties,NOT because of where it was held. Im done growing thanks!

My Pod-People in the basement seem to be growing just fine, unfortunately the one was supposed to be a double of G. Bush, too late!

Well not completely Kevin but your Karma comment had me wondering?! And whoevern posted about St. louis smelling like ...! But anyway it wasnt the first time the weather this year has called for major snow and it didnt amount to nothing. Hope the moving and pleasing the wifie went well.

Correct I am no weather man. I was going by what the TV said. Everyone said St.Louis was going to be 60-70 degrees and the tv said a blizzard with record snow and rain was headed in. It was cold as hell. I freaked a little when I woke up on Sunday and snow was on the ground. It brought back memories of being stuck in Chicago. But the flights all left on time.

Packing is DONE!! This time next weekend i hope to be sitting on the deck of my humble new abode with a beer in my hand watching the sunset go down over the lake!

(More then likely in my REAL world it will be me in the backyard trying to seperate my dogs and the huge geese that live on the lake!!)

Heres the thing, i know as a life long native of Illinois who's grandparents lived in St loius that the weather really isn't much different at all between the two. When people kept claiming that the weathers better in St. Louis i just had to laugh because there almost identical so weather as a selling point to me is a farce. When it snowed at home, it snowed at grandma's"Bring your coat"

Sometimes i get overzealous i meen hey im a Haunt Actor it's my job to be a smart ass and a smart ass i will always be i just can't help it, iv'e trained myself and countless others at the art of it.

For the record if TW did happen to go back to chicago it really wouldn't make any difference to me im way down in N.C. now and the weather is incredible 95% of the time. Today was 75,sunny and breezy.

For me it makes more sense to head up to MHC it's only a six hour drive.

Im happy as hell to hear the reports coming in that TW seems to be rebounding especially in times like these. I Hope everybody did have a great trip! Pics people!! Spoils aren't nearly enough although i have to say the grand piano(im assuming scarefactory by the background) looks amazing... LOVE it! Nothing like old fashioned gothic type haunt props!

And Grim i believe weather channel is now using the term Epic Storm to draw attention because the storms that passed through here the other day they also sold as an Epic Storm. Kind of a catch phrase deal, like "Best Haunt" is for our bussiness

We actually liked the change and found many more things to do. The weather was great even though the rain was cold on saturday. We left for home sat afternoon before the storm hit milwaukee and chicago. We go through milwaukee and travel a highway which is bad with just an inch of snow on it.

We did find it humorous that the haunted house people were mixed in with some youth church group having a convention there on the same day. Didn't make it Pointer's Pizza this time but there is next year(?)

The weather was fine. That wasn't snow. That was barely a dusting.

Agreed... the weather was fine. I didn't have a coat/jacket, or even long sleeves for that matter the whole trip and it's was tolerable. The snow melted before 1pm anyways! -Tyler
