So we are in for it when it passes over the great lakes? Considering the current water temps around 55*F this will mean epic lake snow. 1 hr north of Buffalo here and about 15 min from Lake Ontario, this should get interesting to say the least..

And next week will be filled with videos of people who, instead of staying home, went about business as usual only to be stuck in miles-long traffic jams in cars that refuse to move on ice and snow covered highways, running out of gas to keep themselves warm.
And then they'll bitch that the government didn't do enough to come save them from themselves.
USA'ians can't even handle a few hours with the power out. How are they gonna handle weeks or months of all public services being goners, which is bound to happen sooner or later?

will we hit the 40s in Cocoa Beach? (Fla.)
Remember when last December, a bout of cold weather crushed the US economy for the next 3 months, and subtracted about $100 billion from trendline growth, and when one after another economist (who were then predicting the yield on the 10 Year would "greatly rotate" to 4% by right about now, and who expected the US economy to have reached escape velocity in the second half only to see a 2014 GDP trendline as follows Q2: 4.6%, Q3: 3.5% (soon to be reviser lower), and Q4 now estimated just about 2.0%) blamed the then -3.0% GDP print on snow in the winter? Well here comes round two, because as CBS reports, "prepare for an invasion from the north. A blast of polar air is about to send temperatures plunging in the heart of America."
