I think it is Carol. Watching the 11:00 news last night, the first mention of accumulation was 6" to 9" for my area. By the time he got to the full forecast, he had changed it to 3" to 6". I though that was just fine with me. This morning, accumulation is now 6" to 12".

Bottom line - it's gonna snow and the forecasters have now clue.

You got that right Andy. I heard 1-2" at noon.

A good night to dig out an old copy of Stephen King's Storm of the Century video!

The other day a friend whose wife is working in New York told me that she'd reported that it was snowing over there.

Hmm. What New York gets today we tend to get next week when it works its way east over the Atlantic ocean.

Weirdly mild over here. Nearly in the middle of December and I was wandering round the stable yard in a thin sweater and no coat. It did however rain like we were going to need Noah's Ark.

We got up to a balmy 32F according to my car thermometer. Currently 28F, and we're supposed to get snow later tonight here along Old Man River.

As much as I was anticipating that snow that's forcasted for tonight I'm hoping it passes us by. My grandson wants to come over and trim my tree with me!

That sound like fun. I always just left the tree which ever way the kids did it. The tree was more for them, than for me. I had some strange looking trees. How old is he?

We expecting 8"-12" tomorrow night and Sunday morning. That means everyone races to the grocery stores to load up on milk and bread. The stores will be mobbed and the shelves will be bare.

This is something I've never understood. Do other people eat a lot of milk and bread when it's snowing? Is it a religious thing? And why milk and bread? How about some meat and vegetables? What about stocking up on bacon?

Hmmm, note to self. Buy some extra bacon. Better get some milk and bread too.

Milk, bread, cigarettes and beer. I don't drink milk or smoke cigarettes, but there's an innate drive in me to purchase these things whenever they predict snow. I don't have a choice. I'm driven to do so.

-22C (-8F)

Looks like we are getting some of that storm too. According to the Weather Network,

"...Finally, a low pressure system from the Southern United States will move to lie over New England Sunday morning while increasing. Snow associated with this system will affect Southern Quebec beginning Saturday evening with snowfall amounts possibly exceeding 15 centimetres. Northeasterly winds will also intensify as the system approaches and could significantly reduce visibilities in blowing snow."

They are predicting another 10 cm on Sunday. Total: 25 cm = ~10"
