"French Toast" Storm Coming..

12-to-14 inches.............. first time in a long, long time when we got TWO nor'easter's in the same winter...........


What is a "French Toast" storm, you might ask ??

It's one where you need to go right now and buy bread, milk, eggs..........

Hey, what are the chances that the interstates in your area will be relatively clear by Sunday afternoon?

If you're talking I-95 and the Pa. turnpike, they will keep them clear through the night and tomorrow...........I'm not sure how well New Jersey does with 295 or their turnpike.......
If you are talking the Northeast extension or interstate 80.........fuggettabouttit !

I'd be traveling up I-83 to York, then east on I-81/78 into New Jersey......

Optionally, I could go up the Jersey Turnpike....

your planned route is best.........
although a storm is predicted for the York, Hanover, Harrisburg area, they won't get the killer numbers that Jersey is expecting. I've experienced I-78 in a blizzard (1996) but not recently. My advice would be to pay the toll and travel the turnpike east from Harrisburg..........And Honk as you go past the last exit in Pa. lol

.....and PM me with a report when you get home !

Already home and hunkered down for the duration. Got the comfort food stocked and ready to cook and all the baking supplies as well. 14 - 30 inches is a WIDE margin for error so not taking any chances.
