We will be hit by the biggest blizzard in a few years. We're expecting about a foot and a half of snow with 50 MPH winds between now and tomorrow morning.

I ain't put my tootsies out the door yet but it looks like we got about 6-8 inches on the ground and it appears that the snow will continue into the evenin'. We just ain't equipped to deal with this much snow here on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp. Mrs Hoot, who lived in PA for twenty years until I lured her down south nigh on to ten years ago now, says we use the religious method of snow removal.....
God put it there....God will take it away.
I reckon she is right.

I'm in Jersey. We're getting the same storm moving up the east coast all the way up to maine. I wish it would have hit yesterday but GA finally had a white christmas after 100+ years!

Well, at various locations in the yard, sheltered and unsheltered, we got 8 inches and some drifts up to 15. Still snowing. I reckon we ain't going anywhere for a spell.
Dagnab it, now my tootsies are cold.

Looks like the Nor'Easter is gonna go south of us and then hit the Maritime provinces. Looking at some weather maps, it seems the jet stream is awfully far south.
