Finally!!

The snow has gone to our south and dumped all over another region and left us nice and clear

I remember when I lived in Missouri and it snowed 13" in one storm. During it, on the drive home from work, I noticed that people behind me soon fell in line with me driving a foot to the right on the snow instead of in the tracks that were icing over. I think my MA plates had something to do with that

The entire area shut down after two inches. People were freaking and several asked me why I wasn't worried. I just said 'I'm from Boston, this is nothing'.

My brother called and said 2 feet of snow in Fairfax Co. VA. and still coming down.
A carload of kids stopped by and shoveled him out for $30.
I've been there in 4" snows and people FREAK!
I sometimes go to DC area around this time of year for his birthday party, I'm glad I didn't this year.

Best snow in south driving story I have is getting pulled over in Atlanta with 2" of snow. Speeding @ 55 mph on I-75. MA license, "Can't you drive a cah in a dustin'?". Statie (whatever they call them) said "Oh, a Yankee!", I replied "No, Red Sox, but I understand" and off I went, sans ticket.

Yeah, it's been dubbed snowpocalypse and todays storm is snowpocalypse 2. Anyone from up east that want's to earn a lot money should bring their plows down and show these southerners how it's done.

You're definitely going to have trouble if you need to go out! We're only getting 6-8" so it should be no problem

At the weather page on Boston.com, there is no obvious indication that we're getting hit with a major storm tomorrow unless you click through on the "extended forecast"... this is what the page says now:

quote:
Detailed Boston forecast

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the mid 20s. West winds 5 to 10 mph.

Presidents Day: Partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of snow showers. Highs in the mid 30s.
What's happening between tonight and President's Day is apparently irrelevant.

Now that I have a winter job, I have to worry about these storms now. I have a 4x4 Jeep, I can get around. It's the other idiots that scare me!
Before, who cared! Ahhh the working class..... .....

No snow up here either. Well, a few flakes for about 20 minutes earlier but nothing for a few hours now. And all the schools freaked and closed for nothing!

I dunno, I think the state of emergency is justified. I mean, it's kind of raining and the ground is all wet and stuff. That can't be safe!

We MAY get up to 1 inch.
But the last time the news said 2-4 inches, we eneded up with a 2 1/2 day storm dumping 18 inches.

Maybe an inch of 'cement', not enough to stop me from grilling.

I'll be eating a lot of French toast this week
