I can never understand why people bulk up at the Grocery Store for a storm, I mean at most it will be one day until you can get back there.


With two feet of snow and wind at 70MPH in Connecticut .. it'll be more than one day before people can get to the store. And two or three feet of snow in NYC ... YIKES! Get the food now because it'll be days and days before the roads are open and even when they get open it'll be difficult traveling.


The news is now reporting that NYC is expecting up to 30 inches.
That's two and a half feet.


This is a clipper system. We aren't supposed to get snow totals like this in a clipper!!

You don't have to waste gas or electric to turn up the heat to warm the pipes. You just need to let the water slowly trickle out of the faucets. Constantly moving water will keep the pipes from freezing.

We do that but it doesn't always work. The upstairs bathroom kind of hangs out over the porch a bit. The house is 60 years old and the insulation is scarce and poor. Turning up the heat and opening the back panel off the tub/shower pipes seems to help.

Philly ... we are now looking at 14-24 inches.

Philadelphia CBS Local


* Snow accumulations... 14 to 24 inches.

* Timing... snow develops between midnight tonight and 5 am Monday,
then it continues through the day. The snow is expected to become
heavy at times late Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning
when snowfall rates of a couple of inches per hour can occur at
times, then taper off during Tuesday afternoon.

NYC ... you are looking at up to THREE FEET

NBC New York


A paralyzing blizzard with white-out conditions is expected to dump more than two feet of snow on the Tri-State region, and Mayor de Blasio is urging New Yorkers to "prepare for something worse than we have seen before."
The storm is expected to dump 24 to 36 inches of snow on New York City and its surrounding suburbs, beginning Monday and continuing through Tuesday night, according to Storm Team 4.

You stock up a little because with the amounts they are talking about it might be a few days before the plows get your roads open depending on where you live. I know our city services don't even bother with plowing the road that runs in front of our house. I'm so glad our city tax rates are so high ... Makes one wonder just exactly what it is we pay for.

Or if you are more rural, it can take days before the county plows get to you, and if you're talking powder + wind, the road might get opened, but it will just get blown over shut again as soon as the plow comes through.

Well...., seems like it got a bit more serious now. The boss just called me from home (I guess), with some instructions. We will be running a short schedule tomorrow. Last time we run these procedures was Sandy coming.

By other hand, just read on NJ.com that it will be a "All or nothing scenario". Hmmmm, just can't wait. Camera ready.

Please, be safe folks.

My side of MI says that you guys can keep your snow - The last time I got a foot of the white stuff, it was miserable trying to drive in it.

Stay safe though.

I'm looking at all the different weather forecasts for the area. Each has a different amount. They can't agree. I guess we'll know in 48 hours when it's all done.

We've already been issued a Level 2 snow alert in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. Thank goodness I don't have to drive, but if I do, even more thank goodness I have ABS with AWD!

3-5 Inches to be expected, 5-8 in some ridge regions

I am in the main target area here in Massachusetts. Am I going crazy over it? Ahhh...no. Lived in this area and around Boston for 50 yrs. It's winter, we get snow. Will I think it'll be the "worst storm ever", not by a long shot. Blizzard of '78 was the worst I ever lived through. The main highway around Boston (rte 128/95) was filled with abandoned cars, buried to the doors in snow. We were snowbound for about a week in the house. Much of that time without power, heat was a wood stove, light was candles or battery operated lanterns. Listening to the reports on the radio, while playing cards and board games.

Blizzard of 78



This blizzard will last one day, we'll be back to work and on the road Wednesday, Thursday if the state drags their feet in order to get more $$ from the Feds.

It seems to me we could build some kind of big coherent RF energy transmitting array way up North in the polar region and kind of steer these low pressure areas away from populated areas by heating the ionosphere in just the right spots. In theory it could work. What do you all think?

I'm near Pittsburgh here by about 30 minutes give or take, SE, and since I last posted that at about midnight EST, we've already gotten about an inch and a half to 2 inches and the plows have been through 3 times already. We're on a weathr alert till 1pm at least.

My hubby leaves Vermont BTV at 11:00am. He has a flight leaving out of JFK for northern Cali at 5pm. I hope his timing is okay and he doesn't get stuck at JFK.

He has a 4hr layover in NYC? Crazy!!

Well ... last nights clipper totally missed us. So we can shave 3 inches off the expected totals. The 'Nor Easter is supposed to show up here this afternoon and go into the night. I'm seriously doubting it's going to be what they say. At least not here ...

They are calling it the "winter whallop" here in Nova Scotia.


When they give a name to this things is a bad sign. Like "Thundersnow" or "Polar Vortex".
They have given it the official name of "Superstorm Juno" according to a local radio station. Last time they did that it was "White Juan",and it did shut everyone down for days. Fun times on the way...
