This is shaping up to be one of the biggest since 78.

2+ ft of snow and 50-60 mph winds.

Plenty of food and beer.10 gals of gas for the generator. Made sure my little Corolla is full too in case I need to use the inverter.

This is one heck of a storm!
Even down here in Florida, we are gonna get some of the coldest weather we have had in a bunch of years.
Trying to find some warm clothes! :emoji_sunglasses:

Doesn't sound like much fun to me. But for any die hard snowmobilers, I bet they are getting giddy as kids at Christmas!

Yes this is adding up to be a real pain in the .... Been bad 3 out of 4 weekends
and this could be the worst for quite some time.
Depends which way it blows once it passes New England, and how it tracts north to us .

Not really hitting up here until Saturday evening
High winds - Lots of snow - Hours of freezing rain - than maybe rain

Is it spring yet

Here in coastal RI and Mass there's also the major concern for storm surge and coastal flooding.

Snowing here already with 1 1/2"s down ,

I love it here in the land of , don't like the weather wait 5 minutes and than see if you like it

At least it is warm now 1deg. C, or 33*F for my southern buddies

Been snowing on and off all day here, but it hasn't amounted to much, so far.

Same here but the problem is its turned into a nice thin glaze of ice and then we're going to pile quite possibly 2 feet of snow on that glaze.

The snow is probably a plus on top of the ice, as far as traction goes, but you just keep that 2 feet of it up thatta way.
