I am in the upstate of SC. They are predicting a very good snow here for tomorrow and Weds. We rarely get snow of any significance. So it s big deal. My area is predicting upwards of 10 inches or more. This will cripple this area for days to come.

We have not had any significant snowfall since 2011. The last blizzard was in 20 years ago and we got over 14 inches.
The setup is exactly the same and they calling for the same amount of snow. I sure hope its a repeat!

That's a lot of snow for you. That's a lot of snow for anybody all at once.

Carol, I grew up in Pittsburgh years ago, and we had some epic snow storms. But we had few snow days that I can recall. In order for us to have a snow day, the snow had to be measured in "feet", not inches.

Holy, um, fuzz! We're supposed to get the coldest day of the year tomorrow. As if our current 2F isn't cold enough. At least no snow is predicted here along the Mighty Mississippi, it's just too cold to snow!

"Too cold to snow"? Now you've doomed yourself Dawg!

We're getting daily highs in the lows 30s the first half of this week. Sun has been nice too, since I can actually use the sun room without needing to turn its heat on (electric baseboard since our forced-air system in the house would have been a bear to extend out there). BUT, and there is always a "but" during winter, we're due to get snow very late Wednesday night, messing up Thursday and, possibly, dragging into Friday and Saturday. So long as I get to the grocery store by Wednesday we'll be good.

One thing to say about my excursion into the snow belt today, the highways were bone dry. I don't mind that kind of winter driving at all.

And last winter, Boston didn't have enough snow to even measure.

We beat the record lowest temperature for our area for this date, set in 1885. -22F. It's all the way up to 8F now, and sunny.

This whole winter has sucked, hasn't it? Right now we're also on record for having the second coldest winter since 1905. Expecting a warm up later this week, which might push us back to the third coldest.
