Yeah, heard that and thought of you! We are gearing up for 8-12" here- a mere drop in the bucket compared to what you guys have been socked with.

Good thing is, we can handle it relatively well.

Stay safe Gutie-

Goodness - get to the grocery store, Bread and Milk.

Also get emergency water. We were without water for 2 days and my backup water came in so handy, just wish I would have had more.


We are slated for sleet/ice, but I think most of that will be above Atlanta.

We had 25" just outside of DC, now they are calling for 8-16" more here. We lost power for over 36 hours... to cold for the kids, so we hiked the 1.5 miles to my parents (actually we only had to walk about a quarter of that because someone actually got their truck out and drove us part of the way). What an adventure with my 7 year old son, me pulling my 4 yo daughter on a sled, and my wife walking (she's 8 months pregnant). It was worth it to sleep with heat. Not sure we can do it again if we lose power again.

Storm is sweeping through Chicago and Cleveland and then on through DC up to Boston. I am in Baltimore.

My sister lives in Annapolis. She says it is bad. People were saving spaces in the parking lot of her apartment complex with chairs and boxes. My sister threw the chairs and boxes aside and drove her truck in. The guy wanted to hit her. Now my sister is a 56 yo breast cancer survivor who served in Desert Storm. You don't mess with her. She said, "Go ahead and hit me but I will get the police and put your a** in jail." The guy backed off. It's only going to get worse with more snow.

Oh boy, I do feel sorry for you guys. I have a niece and a nephew in college in northern VA. They are supposed to be coming to Atlanta this weekend, but depending on when these things hit, I wonder if they will be able to get in/out.

We got 2 feet of snow on Saturday here in Philadelphia. The forecast is for snow starting tomorrow (Tuesday) night, snowing all day Wednesday. We're suppposed to get 12 - 18 inches more.

I'd suggest that you put the additional snow on top of your old snow.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I love the El Nino years in Seattle. Most of the winter in the 50s and little rain.

Saw an interesting stat on the news this evening - Philly and DC have about 54" of snow so far this year. Concord, NH has just over 38" this snow season.

I jinxed New England via purchasing a new 2-stage snow thrower this year. Once I started to get the hang of using it at a level where humans, animals, and objects would not be in imminent danger, the snow has backed off in Southern NH.

I have to wonder at what point do these folks need to start getting some of the snow off their
roof. I know a couple large buildings have already collapsed.

From my experience it will all be gone by May.

The year that I graduated from college in Erie PA we still had 6in of snow on the ground 1 week before our outdoor graduation ceremony. The day of the ceremony it was in the high 80s to low 90s though and everything was in bloom.

Yeah. 'Same thing happened to me in northern MA. If we didn't have 3 feet of snow on the ground by Halloween, people started watching for 3-headed calves and toadstool-circles.

But this far south, more than a few inches of snow each season is unusual.

Maybe we should be watching out for 3-headed calves and toadstool-circles.

Sometimes people just miss the most obvious solution. ;)

Wouldn't that be FILO?

On my street there is so much snow that every pile had reached a peak, like a pyramid, so any more snow will only increase the base, not the height, which means it goes in the street or on the sidewalks, or in between the cars. We have 5+ foot tall piles in every yard from all the shoveling. The plows and bobcats they brought in can't pile any higher.

Ok, so I had to look it up. It seems you're both right.

Ship it to Vancouver.

Blizzard of '78 I helped my brother wheel barrow all the snow from the front of his house to the back. Neighbors, too.
City plow would come and push it all back into driveways and sidewalks and then all the homeowners would go shovel it all back out into the street. Sort of a never ending cycle. Usually the street becomes a packed down refrozen rutted mess ripping exhausts off.

In crowded city streets usually you end with with big piles in parking spaces.
Not uncomon to have one car out front in the street and any other cars down the road in a public parking lot or business lot. At least at night.

Can't dump truckloads of it into rivers and waterways any more in some places. So it goes in huge piles in parking lots and melts into those same water zones.

Kinda glad I didn't live in the city .
