The snow started around 19h and we have a couple of inches. The snow flakes are getting bigger. It warmed up 2 degrees to -16C (3F) with wind chillies of -28C (-18F).

We did some shopping in the -18 C /0 F weather. At the liquor store parking lot I saw a guy on a bicycle!

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


We got about one inch and now it is raining. I never pay attention to what they say on TV. Boston weather is always less than the rest of the state. Unless it is a Nor'easter. Then we get it all.

Icy rain hitting our windows right now Addie. I despise this kind of weather. Back home we might get freezing rain once every couple years or so. Seems like it happens a couple times a winter where we are now. Hate it!

Long pants? Sweater? I've seen a few crazies up here wearing shorts and sneakers with no socks in that kind of weather. *shakes head*

Those are my favorite kind of flake! When it was really cold back home I swear some of the flakes were the size of dinner plates! I know, exaggerating, but they drifted down like something out of a Charlie Brown TV special. Up here if we get the larger flakes they don't drift, they come sideways at you at about 40 or 50 MPH.

Around here, in the spring, the farmers call those big fluffy snowflakes "poor mans manure".

In the winter they just call it snow!

In the Navy, it's kind of important to get a forecast right. The captain hates it when an aircraft carrier is in a bad weather system while jets are trying to land on the flight deck

Our area is the same way - it's always warmer than the rest of the state, because of our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay.
