Snow storm in the NE

Set to hit our area Wednesday afternoon/evening into Thursday. Right now we're in the 12+ bracket, so hopefully that comes down.

This one might be my fault. I took the snow blower out of the shed 2 weekends ago...

Forecast for 12 - 18" here west of Boston. SIL and in-laws forecast for 18 - 24" in central NJ.

Have gas for the snow blower. Haven't put the plow or chains on the tractor.

Haven;t used the tractor for snow the past few years. I can put the plow and chains on pretty easily, if needed.

Looking forward to it. I'll be sitting on the porch with a Jameson enjoying it. I'll probably shovel but I might let the neighborhood kids make a few bucks.

We didn't have to use the snow blower at all last year. I'm going to have to get some gas. I have some from draining the riding mower, but probably not enough.

This is in the correct sub-forum for topics outside of Outer Banks.

Latest reports still have us on that 6-12 to 12+ line. Doesn't look to be changing much like they normally do. Gonna pull the generator out of the shed just in case.

Not looking too bad in the Pittsburgh area. I did get out the snow blower just in case.

This is looking like a lot fun... Once I see a single snow flake (yeah, yeah, I know the jokes write themselves) I'm heading home from work. Getting from the city to the burbs is fun enough. Don't want to be doing it in the first snow in a while. People seem to completely forget how to drive.

Our expected accumulation has been lowered from up to 24” to 12-15”, from Wednesday through Thursday. Either prediction will keep me in where it’s warm and cozy. At some points it may fall at 3-5” an hour. Note to self: remember to fill bird feeders.

I did that last weekend. One is still full, but the other is apparently to low and the deer have discovered it.

I am living vicariously through you guys. Originally from VA and now in NC I haven't experienced many big snow storms. I recall one year we ended up with ~20" I think, but from two storms back to back that were a few days apart. Besides that I can probably count on one hand how many 10" snows I've seen. I wish for the big one every year, but it would devastate this area for a few days.

Welp, Jim Cantore is in the Lehigh Valley (my area) broadcasting from Allentown/Bethlehem area. Just great. (Insert eye roll here)

I flew out of ABE a lot when we lived in NJ. Great little airport. Much better than using NWK for me.

Probably 8-12 on the ground now and looks like its not letting up, the lab is laying in the sun room watching it snow, If he goes out it is not too long and comes in looking like a Dalmatian. Time to put another log on the fire maybe a Guinness is in order.

I'd guess we're up to around 5" now. Probably gonna easily beat that 12" prediction. ::sigh:: On a positive note, this is Coby's (puppy we got last year) first big snow. He's not sure what to think about it. I threw him some snowballs, but he can't figure out why they keep disappearing.

Ready for the morning. Uhg...

Cantore is just up the street from the Hotel Bethlehem with the hotel in the background.

I used to stay there after I moved to MA and would go back for Musikfest, 2003 - 2009.

Can't watch Cantore. Back to the Villanova - Butler game.

Yeah, caught him a couple times while channel surfing. Also not interested in his in depth dialog.
