Out on the eastern end of the island -- we are to get 18-24 (looking good for that right now) And the Fire Department has been told that it may ease up a bit tonight then we will get whalloped with the worst of it later. It is windy and majorily snowy right now. So to think of it getting worse later --

I gotta apologize to you. When you predicted this sotrm, I thought it wasn't gonna happen.
I stand corrected here in SE Michigan, north of Detroit, we have maybe 9 inces, but with all the drifting, it's impossible to tell. Winds are gusting from the north up to 45 mph.
I truly feel for all who are getting this worse than we are here

Near a foot now, a little less, in Westchester, NY.

The roads are very bad...and people are jogging. {{shaking head}}

Anyone else having trouble with weather.com?
Having trouble accessing it most of today...guess they're getting lotsa lotsa hits?

You should hear the snow that is falling off the power lines above my house and are hitting the house -- it sounds like someone is bouncing a basketball against the sides of the house.

The lights have blinked and there are transformers blowing all around the area (benefits of being married to a fireman - hearing all the stuff that is going on on the scanner) CO2 detectors are going off in peoples houses and accidents all around.

I'm cooking up a stew that can be heated up on the wood stove if the power goes out --- made chicken salad and a roast. So we are good to go for a while.

edited to add that on the east side of the house the snow is higher than the bottom of the door (which is a good step up to get into)

Yep, they must be overloaded with hits.
I've seen it happen on accuweather, too.

No need to apologize DontTreadOnMe.

I am glad though that I can at least get the word out first for the storm when the rumors first came out and of which proved to be accurate,. I guess we might just end up with 3 feet of snow as I originally threw out in my original post.

I actually just came in tonight from my job and it is definitely white out conditions out there right now. You can't see #. And as for this storm it could be the 5th worst in history.

I was skeptical as well, we have like 6 - 8 inches now here in New York City! Yeah, I love the snow!

About a foot here so far in Connecticut. The winds are picking up causing blizzard like conditions. I hear the trees snapping

By tomorrow morning 8 EST we should have a little over 2 feet or more, also depending on the wind drifts.

we recieved around 6 inches, im guessing, here in Kitchener, Ontario. But the wind is making things nasty. The storm passed by last night but we are still receiving snowsqualls from lake huron. if i look on the radar over western Canada along the border with the United States I see another disturbance coming. another storm forming?

Good call, man!! I first saw this thread a while back and didn't think much of it. But it looks like you called it!!! you should be a meteorologist.

Looks as though you were right on target! I followed your thread from the start. You indicated to me that the storm, here in the northeast, would be worse as you went towards the coast.
I believe that around the Cape it is the worst storm they have recorded. Boston is closed for 2 days.
For us in NH, except the coast, it was just a good Nor'easter. We had officially 14 inches of snow in Manchester, but the blowing and drifting caused some inches more than that in places.
I will be watching for your "forecasts" in the future.

Erm I believe thanks is due to Accuweather.com and of which I brought the information here so more more people can see it and be forwarned.

Here is the final totals of the storm.

Here's a Pic of Ocean Drive which is the southern Tip of Newport which is right along the coast. The road is almost completely cover by 6 feet or more of snow. People were driving on the sidewalks to get by.

And yet another possibility of another Nor Easter, but come on, what are the odds of another storm being this bad coming again in another week?
