    If you start driving now, you might beat the storm up here ....

    I am hoping we at least get enough to shovel, unlike anything we've ha since Halloween 2011!

    My prodocuer, in Florida, is already panicking for me, and called me from his Florida backyard, saying the sky overhead was eerie and coming my way!

    I am too, Ellie. Our local weatherman, Hurricane Schwartz, said we're in for a Nor'Easter Friday into Saturday. Trenton is in the 5" to 8" area with more as one heads north. THINK SNOW!!!

    We're getting that one tomorrow afternoon and night. They're saying about 3-4 inches around here, more farther north.

    I am looking forward to it, seems we will get the brunt of the storm in the Boston area - they are currently predicting 2 feet and more - or at least a foot depending on what weather model they are looking at. We've got plenty of food, water, tea, cocoa, and even plenty of birdseed for our wild buddies on hand, and will avoid the grocery store tomorrow!

    Today the birds were very actives, and we had two squirrels at once (Nathaniel and Timmy) when we haven't seen Timmy in weeks!

    Channel 6 Accuweather is saying south of Philly it will be rain all day, changing over to wet snow before it ends. In other words - no accumulation.
    Hurricane Schwartz - he is an odd one - don't you think??? Him and his bowties...........

    I gather from this morning's weather report that there is a bigger system moving up the East Coast, which will join with the Alberta Clipper we're getting late this afternoon. You guys are getting much more. I'm glad you're ready for it and all stocked up.

    Best wishes, all!

    Yeah - I can be there in 8 hours or so - so I've got plenty of time. Got an extra bed and room for me and Myndi?? Oh - and I can pick up the other snow lover, momcat, on my way up too.

    Drive carefully! I'm staying indoors today. Anyone with any sense would.

    Attached is our temperature/wind chill. (Sorry, I can't seem to make it smaller).

    We're getting hit with a storm that was not supposed to travel this far north, for once they predicted only the south would be getting it--- WRONG--- it's been snowing since early morning and still hasn't stopped. So much for our snowless winter. I have a dutch door on the barn and the snow is as high as the middle split...ugh... I'm sure if the snow keeps up it will reach the barn windows and cover them...-

    I got my car washed yesterday, when it was 38F and sunny. It stayed clean for less than twelve hours. It's been raining almost all day and now it is snowing. So the word I'd use tonight is sloppy. It's 32F now and sloppy out. Yuk.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    We've got another Alberta clipper (Candace, please keep them there!) right now, with about 3-4 inches of snow.

    That's heading east to join up with the other storm traveling up the East Coast, which will produce that Nor'easter predicted later today for the northeast coast, in particular the Providence and Boston areas.

    All you folks affected by this, please keep warm and safe! Prayers and best wishes that you all get through it safely.

    Rain rain go away, I want to see it snow today!

    But it ain't gonna happen. Just heavy rain and wind - a mini Sandy. Might see a little snow fall much later, but with the ground so wet and not frozen, nothing will stick.





    I want THIS - like we had a few years ago.........
    Haven't had a decent snow since.

    dodging a bullet

    The Pittsburgh area is dodging a bullet as far as this blizzard is concerned. We're to get a lot of rain today and this afternoon (for the rush hour yuck!) turn into freezing rain and 1" of snow overnight. My thoughts and prayers are for the PTers and everyone in the target zone of this SNOWZILLA!
