Blizzard on the Way...

15 posts in this topic

After an entire month of above average temperatures and little if any snow, it looks like winter is finally ready to make a comeback.

A Blizzard Watch is currently in effect for my county (Westchester, NY), along with approx. 10 other counties in Southern New England and Long Island. I'm sure Paulie (LI) is getting ready for this as well. Snow is expected to overspread my area in the early afternoon tommorow and become heavy through tommorow night and Sunday. Last I heard whiteout conditions were likely for late tommorow night. Most forecasts are calling for 8-12", though some are forecasting higher amounts. I'll have to get out early tommorow before the storm arrives.

Rochester gets a really bad rap for being a giant igloo, but so far we've had nothing but constant flurries while Boston has gotten creamed.

About the only thing more fun is getting rock salt all over your car and not being able to do anything about it. And to think last weekend I was riding around town with the windows down and the sunroof open.

I'm not looking forward to this. I was supposed to go to Monster Jam tomorrow night at Nassau Coliseum, but the best I can hope for is a cancellation so that I can get a refund/exchange. It's a ~1hr drive for me on a good night.

That sucks, but I really like your latest sig, z. I love to drive (locally) in snow. Growing up on the farm, we couldn't do anything in the fields when it snowed (well, we had to feed the cows), so we usually spent the day driving around in our 4WD pickup trucks. YEEE HAWWW!

12 inches is nothing! Try 5 feet in three days and then we'll talk.

Still, a lot of people in this region aren't prepared for this kind of weather so I hope every stays indoors.
