Default KILLER Snow Storm Coming Soon - We are going to all die

Yeah, right..... Anyway, it looks like the northeast will get pounded by a snow storm that is still far off, but close enough where the so-called experts are predicting significant amounts of snow. I hope all the northeast Onan members are ready, make sure you got plenty of beer. Below is a copy/paste from a local online news site.

A powerful March nor'easter could deliver as much as 18 inches of snow and possible blizzard conditions across parts of New Jersey early next week, depending on what track the storm takes.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service and other weather agencies are predicting the storm system will come together late Monday and strengthen as it moves up the Atlantic coast on Tuesday.

NY NJ PA Weather, a private forecasting company based in Freehold, New Jersey, is [B]predicting as much as 14 to 24 inches of snow [/B]-- with some isolated pockets of 30 inches -- in northwestern New Jersey. The company predicts a swath of 10 to 20 inches of snow between Philadelphia and New York City, with 6 to 12 inches in areas closer to the Jersey Shore and 2 to 6 inches in southeastern New Jersey.

If this storm hits, I will have one of my security cameras streaming live online for all to see. I will post a link to the camera Monday evening.

By far the most reliable source for weather forecast is to check your local grocery store; if the shelves are bare of milk and bread snow is on the way.

The sad thing is that this storm will kill people- some of which will likely be due to improper use of generator sets.

we are always ready here. Good dry wood for the wood stove , a snow blower that might start again, several gennys that we probably wont need, but ALWAYS have beer in the fridge. The only real reason we would need to run a genny is for the sewage ejector. If you cant flush, life stinks, literally. Sometimes I really hate that sewage ejector, but, the reality is its the single best excuse to collect generators. . If I really needed and excuse

And as my wife who is from Maine would say. " Wicked Pissah Stawm comin."

That always cracks me up. Would all that milk and bread be otherwise consumed in that period?

When I used to live in the Albany, NY area and we got that blizzard in 1993 about this time of year, they had it all cleaned up within a day and everything was back open, much to the disappointment of those who had to report to work thinking they had a free day off due to snow. Even after all 36 inches of it.

Anyway, hasn't the east coast enjoyed a pseudo-spring since October? You get the whole winter in one neat, intense package and then its back into the 60-70s! I am in no way degrading what is a dangerous event, but you guys have got this. Easy day!

I live about 25 miles north of Albany, NY, and while this winter has been strange, I wouldn't call it a pseudo-spring. It has been periods of unseasonable warmth alternating with periods of hard winter. The beginning of February started with no snow on the ground, then three major storms within a week left a coating of two feet, not including drifts. A couple of weeks later it was all melted. A week ago we had a few days of 50 to 60 MPH winds that took out a lot of power lines. The last two nights have been just above zero. And now a possible major storm as a parting gift of winter. At least this time of year, it won't last long.

Johnny, looks like Squidtrap and I are in the 2 to 4 inch area but you know how they lie, but just in case I will bring my wheel horse with the plow and my snow blower up to the house. sounds like a good time to warm up the MDJB just in case we need it..

Yea, this 2 inches of snow I woke up to about wore me out. would you believe I had to push some off the windshield of the station wagon so i wouldn't burn up my wiper motor? According the talking weather heads on tv we are supposed be unable to travel or do anything till this evening!. Pooy, I went to breakfast, did my walmart run, and came home fine.
What amazes me is on the tube last night they were showing folks in New York wrecking in light snow. If you went by the yankees that come down here, they act and claim they really know how to drive in the snow, we southerns can't. yea right. Who do they think drives the rollback out there to drag their butts up the embankment and home?

I hope for the best for the folks that will be hit heavy. Look out for your neighbors. They may not be as blessed as you are with plenty of beer and a generator.
