Re: Its COLD!

The Euro model has been pretty consistent with a heavy snow prediction for Friday... even when the GFS and the NAM were saying little to no snow. I'm inclined to believe it... it was spot on for Irene, Sandy, and the October snowstorm.

Blizzid o' 78 was 35 years ago.

I was delivering newspapers on my bike.

Right now we are under a winter storm WATCH. But the weather man did say there is a chance we also could be bumped to a blizzard watch tomorrow. Either way we are looking for 12-24 inches of snow!

The Cali kid may not think this is so great at BU.
But, she is used to 20 feet of snow on the ground at Tahoe so maybe not.

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.

So you guys worried about this Snowmageddon?

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...

I'm not!
I'm just going to get some food supplies and watch the snow come.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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

In the old days before snow blowers, I used to love waking up to NO traffic noise, very silent world of deep snow.
