Our snow just changed to huge fluffy flakes and it is accumulating. The roads are covered and the barometer took a nose dive.

We have a friend from Boston who was a weather forecaster in the Navy with DH and still has family and friends there. He says Boston will get about 1" of accumulation overnight with a changeover to sleet and rain tomorrow. Accumulations of 6-12" north and west, with most areas getting 8-10".

He's been very accurate with predicting nor'easters here, and Hurricane Sandy last year. Let's see how well he does

33F, been wandering in and out without a coat. Went to Costco earlier, only had a sweater on because my pants don't have pockets.

We're in the 8-12 inch band of snow. Told Himself we better get ourselves to church tomorrow so we don't have to worry about digging out early on Sunday. So much for that "day of rest". Apparently God has a sense of humor.
It warmed up. It's been -18C (0 F) most of today. With the wind, that was really frelling cold. This is our forecast:

You went in only a sweater? I can see that it might be annoying not to have pockets in one's trousers, but to leave them home...

It's just a little after midnight & it's 10F. The wind makes it feel much colder.
