Default Saturday: New Jersey's 1st Snow Storm of the Winter

I guess we will be getting our first snow storm for this winter in New Jersey. This morning they predicted a dusting, now they say several inches. By the morning the "fake" news media will tell us to expect 2 feet of snow. I don't expect any power outages because I am prepared. Anyone else expecting snow?

TV says ~3 inch, NOAA says 6.
Radio ski ads say good skiing base now, great next week
Of course we're called ski country.....

Around here we are expecting up to 7 inches. That is plowable snow if it sticks. My JB is ready as always? Next week they are predicting much colder weather. I like to load up the JB during the cold weather. Even with those thermostatic exhaust air shutters, it runs too cold if just running NL. So, what I like to do sometimes is during a cold Northeaster is to switch over to JB power, and load it up for a few hours. Typically drawing about 30 amperes on each leg. I ran the numbers and my JB running at nearly FL is cheaper than buying power from National Grid. Hey, I am 80 years old so I figure why not use it more and enjoy it. After all, it has accumulated low hours over the past 47 years. Nobody around here could give a hoot and I like the sound. BTW, the harder it works the better it performs! Just last week changed the oil and filter. Who knows maybe for the last time.

Good for you Leon! That JB was a good investment some 47 years ago. May I ask what you had to pay for it in 1970?

Years ago during the summer I mentioned getting A generator to the girlfriend. She say "NO! the power never goes out for
Long here". That winter ice took out a bunch of poles and the north west end of the island was out of power for a week we had to borrow a couple hours a day from our neighbors generator to run the oil boiler so it didn't freeze. Anyways the girlfriend isn't around and my generator is doing exactly what's it supposed to do. Sit around an taunt the power to fail!

7:35 am, nothing here . Bright and sunny with temps in the upper 70's. ...... Well, actually it is cloudy and temp is 35 degrees in North Jersey.



***** ----> But remember everyone, the fake news says this will be a killer snow storm of the century.

Latest NJ weather update: The FAKE news media states that there is a "delay" for the start of the storm, but it will hit with accumulations much more than before. They say this is a significant snow storm.......... Still sunny with temps in the 70's here. This is like watching grass grow waiting for this storm to start.

Hey Joe (Yellowlister), any snow yet down there in the Florida Keys???

White GA reported 10 inches. Here in Lawrenceville I'm seeing close to 6. Still, no power outages in my area but Rome GA is reporting a lot of outages. Really weird when you find yourself hoping for a power outage.

Edit: 5 minutes after I wrote this the power went out.

It started to snow Wednesday up here in my part of the northland.
Puddles of water now covered in a thin layer of ice with about 4 or 5 inches of snow.
Confirmed it is still snowing, I see a flake here and there.
Temperatures dropped from +5 to -10 in a couple of days and it takes some getting used too.

Your never ready, last weekend it was mild enough for sweater.
Now you can still wear a sweater ( its just bellow freezing ) but its physiological effect of seeing the snow that makes it feel cold.

Got any pictures Johny C?
I bet I have more snow than you have.

Stinky ( not her real name, but she answers too it, and if you get close to her mouth you would understand why I call her that ) investigates the first fall of what is likely going to stick for the season.
She is excited because its new and it makes it easier to track those big black Squirrels and Wabbits that taunt her...
