Re: Its COLD!

Let close this thread for the time being. Once the blizzard is over I can re-open it if you all want me to.

In the meantime let's use:

»[All] Blizzards of '13

for this storm.

jap, it is shown on the CT ABC news website. I can't find those maps/charts on NOAA/NWS site either. You probably have to be a subscriber to get them.

The NOAA site is an awesome (I don't use that word often) place to wander around for an hour or eight.
I've been going there for years and I still feel like a 5 year old lost in the mall. Sometimes laughing in sheer joy, sometime crying in terror.

I was just looking at the sailing weather. Supposed to be great between Cape Cod Bay and Southern Maine. I can get an App for my phone. Surf forecast is good too. I know a couple idiots people that are planning on "Surfing the Blizzard". Fishing predictions are not looking good. Tanning index is zero,

That's how easy it is to stay on topic.
Thank you NOAA.

Thanks, Harddrive.

Feeling a little better that NOAA's overnight max gusts estimations have been reduced from 70 MPH to 40. I live under large trees.

I lived for free in one of those (historic whaler's house, in-town) for half a winter. Had some great snows and very quiet and friendly off-season.

I've sailed over in the Dead o' Wintah a few times.
Sail-Cred!!! Fishermen give notice to "Yachtsmen" when they are actually "Sail-Bums" and have a clue.

I used to be interesting...

The map Hardass posted got me to thinkin' about the outlying areas...

Nantucket: They are still pretty tough Whaler-Locals. Laughing all the way to the bank "Looking after" summer homes. (see P-Town)

Martha's Vineyard: Locals are so watered down by Washashores they my tilt the island waiting for canceled ferrys. The soft underbelly of the SE MA defense. (see P-Town)

Cuttyhunk: Won't even notice. All ~50+ of them won't notice. Nope, won't notice.(see P-Town)

Block Island: or "any port in a storm" Rhode Island island? That much snow there? Bahahahahaha! (see P-Town)

Provincetown: The air traffic to Boston was busy. Roads out were was busy too. Locals were ready for the storm. NO PEOPLE FROM AWAY! (I have a net-friend there)

I call a Snow Day for my weekly trip to Motel Hell on Saturday!

Boss Lady has 4WD and a Plow. My Buick doesn't. -$72.

I use the 50/50 volume egg/milk ratio and store brand Split-Top-Whole-Wheat and a 75% REAL maple syrup and some "thinner". (Real butter)

Yeah, I like that "snow day!" feeling you get when you wake up to the sound of a snowplow going past the house Although these days I don't get snow days so much. I'm working tomorrow, at least until they shut down public transit (scheduled for 3:30PM).

I don't work there anymore so I don't get to see it so much, but I love Harvard Square when the snow is heavy enough to keep the cars away. Suddenly it's not crowded or dirty or smelly or smoggy, just beautiful and peaceful and perfect...

Me too. Apparently my iPhone gets Emergacy Broadcasts. I never had one before today, but my phone gave the EBS tone in the middle if the store. I had everyone looking at me. But it was for the blizzard warning.

Boston University cancelled classes for Friday, I would guess most of the other schools will shutdown too.

I just saw the weather man show "models" of how this is going to pan out, and one of them has the storm on top of the Cape. Or very near it. And that is the one they thing will be right. The closer, the more snow, the further east, the less snow.

Interesting you mentioned that I had forgotten Feb is the anniversary of the blizzard.

»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeaste···_of_1978

It was not nearly as bad here in southern NH as further south. My wife and I had recently moved to NH from Chicago - our first taste of a Nor'easter.

Friggin' Blizzid Warnin' and Coastal Flood Warnin'.

Blizzid o' 78, the eye of the storm sat over the Cape. While everyone over the bridge was getting 2 feet of snow, the sun was out. Highest tides I've ever seen. And we got whacked with winds. Chapin Beach parking lot vanished, boardwalk @ Bass Hole was taken out by ice rising with the tide.

I just tested my generator. Not that I think I'll need it, it just needed to be ran for a little bit anyway. If this were going to be a wet heavy snow, then I probably would expect the power to go out.

i'm just going to sit back, slow cook something yummy. Watch a good movie, or two. Catch up on paper work, And that's about it.

Edit add--- If (BIG "IF") I am motivated enough during the storm, I may drive around and get some photos.
My Jeep can take me there!

It's amazing how people react to possible doom, though. We had a massive rupture in one of the water mains a month ago, took out 1/3 of the city (about 80,000 people were out) and you couldn't even buy water at the grocery store anymore. Water was restored within 3 hours, and I have two huge jugs of distilled water....go figure.

The only thing I'm worried about is going to the grocery store tonight Usually I go on the weekend but obviously that won't be much fun this week, considering I don't have a car and would have to walk there and back through whatever snow we get. So I'll go on the way home from work tonight and try not to be trampled by the last-minute milk-and-bread frenzy mob.

Other than that? I have nowhere to be between work on Friday and Monday, so I'll stay home and chill out and do some research for my upcoming vacation.

24" is a lot..that's like 60 cm. Most we can ever muster out around here is about 14", which is the record...we're expecting 4" here. (We're about 55 miles south-west of Toronto)

Anyway, good luck guys...

Anyway you cut it, this is going to be big. How big is to be determined, but either way this is going to be big.
I was skeptical. ( Actually I still am) but everything points to a huge storm.
