Everyone on the East Coast is freaking right now because of a snowstorm moving in. Where I am outside of Philadelphia, 8 to 14 inches of fluff is expected. 8-o

I think the entire D.C. area is going to shut down. We can't handle 3 inches of snow let alone the one to two feet being called for.

So now I'm going to have to deal with all the weekend Christmas shoppers on Monday. Great. :-P

It's snowing here. The big, slow-falling flakes. It would be pretty if I didn't have to go out in it. Gotta stock up on beer, get the oil changed, and oh yeah, Christmas shop.

Right outside Philly, it looks like we have a fluffy 6 inches or so laying around, with the snow still steadily falling and the weather saying the worst is yet to come apparently... :-o ;-D

It's coming, believe me. We have nearly two feet in the D.C. suburbs. Besides a little shoveling, I haven't left my house yet today and probably won't tomorrow either.

Good luck, guys. A ton of snow really sucks. Last time I thought a bunch of snow was cool was the blizzard of '78, when I got a month off school. Otherwise, it's a serious charley-foxtrot. Even worse that this is one of the biggest travel weeks of the year.

This reminds me that I need to get gas and 2-cycle oil for my snow thrower.

I'm in Roanoke, VA, we got around 20 in. My power was out from 10am sat to 10am sunday. It was a frigit 56 when my thermostat came back on. My road still hasn't been plowed so I haven't ventured out.

I was hoping this wouldn't come, but just got a weather alert for snow. Wed. night through Fri. morning they're currently predicting up to 7" of the white. (insert joke). I know that's not much compared to what some areas get, but Indianapolis becomes a post-apocalyptic disaster zone when we just get flurries. 7 will shut much of the town down.

most of the area got 4-5". The mayor encouraged anyone who could leave work early to do so, to disperse the evening rush hour. To play it safe I packed up my work laptop and left at lunch :-)

I love my snow machine. It's over thirty years old and hasn't been started in a year. I put in a fresh fuel mixture, primed it, plugged it in and hit start and it fired up within 3 seconds.

The guy down the street shoveling gave me an envious look. But, he's not elderly and I'm not ORS, so I didn't do my neighbor's drives. (they were already done, and I did at least make an effort not to throw all my snow into their shoveled area.) I did clear most of the sidewalks around the cul-de-sac, since we're technically supposed to keep those unobstructed.

I can't even imagine what -20 is like let alone 0. I stepped out in some pretty cold weather in a Mammouth Blizzard and just about died in 20 seconds. It was probably only 10-20 degrees out.

It is 50's and 60's here in Cali. :-)
