Im in Michigan and were being hit as we speak. It wont get real bad till tomorrow. I am not looking forward to this at all. I hate the cold and I hate winter, and I have to work on these crappy days.

It is a pretty huge storm but there have been storms this size before. Its just mother nature. Not the end of days.

The more the MSM hypes up the storm, the more people stock up on supplies. Instant stimulus!

Every couple years here in SE Michigan we get a good snowfall. I have food in my cupboards and a snowshovel. I will enjoy a snowday or 2 with my kids.

Texas weather sometimes......

I have never seen so much snow in one season in my life!

the storm on dec 26th dropped 36 inches (My backyard) and the storm a week or two later dropped about another foot... and the one 10 days ago dropped around 18 inches.

Now this mother lover of a storm is about to bury us again!

This winter sucks noodles!

Al gore got it wrong... Its global cooling VIA winter blast! I wonder if next year will be just as bad if not, worse!?

Keep safe everyone and uhh... invest in some skis, snow mobiles, and uhh... lots of hot chocolate.

were going to need it!


That's why I moved out of NJ! The 5 feet of snow over the winter of 2009-2010 put me over the breaking point. I do miss AC though...I used to be about an hour door to door.

I'm not an expert but it looks more like a vast amount of could rather than a cyclonic storm . Maybe the storm has been ramped up for ratings. Time will tell. And I hope it doesn't effect anybody too badly. The Australian storm looks like it could be worse IMO.

Biggest storm ever is horse dookie...a few weeks ago, theWeather channel said NC was having lake effect snow. We're 5 states away from the nearest Great Lake... and no lakes in NC big enough to have "lake efect snow."

Cold weather and lots of sbow and high taxes are why so many folks are moving south... nothing new here. Bad winters happen...always have, always will. Someday you will be the old man that says.. "I remember back in 2000 and 11, biggest storm ever...yup."

And BTW, it originates in Texas, not off the Pacific Coast,

Actually, the developing storm is starting in Texas...BUT....the original Low thats triggering this storm...DID develop off the Pacific Northwest last week. It was dragged southeast down the Rockies by the dipping jet stream, which is diving through Texas and wrapping up to the Northeast and New England. As it arrived in Texas, it started meeting with a system coming from the Gulf of Mexico, adding all that moisture in to the current Low.

I kind of think that what they really mean by "biggest storm", is the size of it, not the precipitation its going to produce. The storm will stretch over 2,100 miles in length. Also, the number of people affected by one single storm system. Over 100 Million.

LOL, so far this morning, I have heard 5"-10", 6"-12", 10"-18" and some areas up to 22". So basically, where I am, we will be lucky to get 6". Which will still make hubby happy, he can finally get the snowmobile out.

This is a precursor to the global superstorm.

I'm in Springdale, AR, and this is what it currently looks like. You can't see in the picture that it's still snowing and sleeting, because I took it through the glass door as I didn't want to go outside. Lol. It started as freezing rain, then turned to sleet, then snow, and now it's sleeting intermittently and consistently snowing. A lot of howling wind too. I really hope the power doesn't go out...Stay safe everybody!

The winter storm that is unfolding in the US Midwest this week (Jan. 31st, 2011), is expected to affect 29 states and over 100,000,000 people in its path. NBC and even some NWS officials are calling this storm, "Potentially the biggest storm ever seen in the US".

Heres a brief video from NBC Nightly News, on January 31st, 2011.

www.msnbc.msn.com...

The video briefly shows the satellite view of the storm, and it covers so much of the US, that at a quick glance, you almost can't tell where the land is below.

Could this be mother nature ramping up her "cleansing" mode? Or maybe HAARP at work? Thoughts?

EDIT: Added Satellite image to the first post, from NASA...

The storm's of 94-97 where worse. I think the media hypes everything up too much.

S&F looks like the UK did a few months ago. I think whats happining is now the Polar shift is going beyond the magnetic influence and is beginning to interact with the atoms more. So its interacting with the easiest atoms to hardest to interact with magnetically. Meaning if correct the force that started as just magnetic interaction with earths field is beginning to modify matter more moving the snow caps physically and eventually land and water masses. Hope I am wrong but it seems the caps are moving down as it seems the south is becomming more like the north with weather patterns.... my 3 cents I am in PA.

Well, we'll know in a few hours if we get it in N Illinois. I am guessing high pressure and wind out of the NE will allow us to just escape this. Nonetheless, the msm and weather predictions all say 100% certainty of heavy snow here, and I doubt it.

Well here is the weather station we use from the US www.wunderground.com...

If you look down a bit the warning says " Blizzard Warning" Which I never recall seeing.....it is usually a severe weather warning or something like that.

Our Canadian site we use is saying severe weather and don't drive tonight......
I am not sure here, it looks on the radar to be slowing down and that means a lot more snow/sleet in one place.
Oohhhhh my back is screaming already.

Here in north Indiana we got 6 inches of snow last nite - we had a lull this morning but its snowing again and the forecast calls for 18-24 inches here. The wind is picking up as well.

A friend just returned from the grocery store - he said they were out of bread, peanut butter and other items he had on his list. Glad I stocked up 2 days ago. Tonight should be the worse of it for most folks - take care all!

Yeah its a good thing you got your supplies when you did, milk and bread here are scarce and our city gets supplied from a city about 60 miles away so it could be some time till our stores get re-stocked.
Our fridge is full and the pantry is busting so we are good........I hope.

The thing is now we are just waiting to get this thing going here so we can get moving on the clean up.
It was really windy here this morning In Ontario but now it is dead still, Calm before the storm I figure.

Regards, Iwinder & wife

I have no idea, but from watching the radar its moving so slow here that I doubt it would cross the Atlantic.

But with this crazy weather you never know?
Keep checking your long term weather forcast on you local internet station or your local television channel.
