I sure hope so. Looking forward to it. Got to work this weekend so I can't make the trip to Potter Co. with the guys to go snowmobiling so maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to put some miles on circling the fields at home.

Besides, snow covers up all of that brown dried grass.


Bring it on Mother nature !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Give it your best shot. I'm ready for ya'

It's been pissing down snow here for the last two days without much accumulation. Weather forecast shows the trend will continue but no storm for now.

From NWS Mt. Holly, NJ (Phila. area)

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
THE FOCUS OF THE LONG TERM PORTION OF THE FORECAST CONTINUES TO
BE THE DEVELOPING WINTER STORM FOR FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY. THE
12Z GFS AND ECMWF HAVE COME INTO AGREEMENT ON SURFACE LOW PRESSURE
TIMING AND STRENGTH, AS WELL AS THE EVOLUTION OF UPPER AIR
PROGRESSION. THE UPPER TROUGH DRIVING EASTWARD FROM THE
SOUTHWESTERN STATES IS SEEN TO PHASE WITH THE CLOSED LOW INITIALLY
IN THE HIGH PLAINS, AND THIS LATTER FEATURE DIGS TO THE OHIO
VALLEY AND TO THE MID ATLANTIC COAST FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT,
WHICH WILL CAUSE STRONG INTENSIFICATION OF THE SURFACE LOW MOVING
OUT OF THE DEEP SOUTH AND NORTHEASTWARD TO OFF THE NORTH CAROLINA
COAST BY EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. INTRA-MODEL CONSISTENCY WITH
PRIOR RUNS, AND 12Z GFS AND ECMWF AGREEMENT, BOOST CONFIDENCE IN
THE POTENTIAL FOR A STRONG EVENT IN OUR AREA. PROBABILITIES WERE
INCREASED FOR THIS FORECAST TO CATEGORICAL AND LIKELY SOUTH AND
CENTRAL, AND TO CHANCE NORTH FOR FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. WITH
1000-500 HPA THICKNESSES MOSTLY BELOW 540 DM AND 1000-850 HPA
THICKNESSES MOSTLY BELOW 1300 M, MOSTLY SNOW WAS FORECAST. THE
EXCEPTION WAS A MIX OF SNOW AND RAIN FOR THE FAR SOUTH LAND AND
SOUTHEAST MARINE AREAS. QUANTITATIVE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO
BE MODERATE TO HEAVY WITH SUCH STORM STRENGTH AND TRACK. ALSO, IT
SHOULD BE A WINDY STORM. SO, A COMBINATION OF WEATHER PARAMETERS
MAY HAVE SIGNIFICANT EFFECTS IN OUR AREA FRIDAY NIGHT AND
SATURDAY.

Sounds like they don't know if it will blow out to sea or stick to the land.

When I lived in the area a lot of storms would go north or south and miss Philly altogether.

Here is a link to a forum on Accuweather.com that I visit often when a storm is coming. Gonna stay to far south of me. There hasn't been a good storm here all year. I think 5" is the most we got at one time. The day after the temp went up and melted most of it. Looks like the storm for approx. Tues. or Weds. may produce a better chance for me.

Looks like the not-so-great state of MA will be missed again! What a winter! :o

Figures. If I were still driving in the city, we'd get 4 feet ... :mad:

Soo... Well, here in the cross hairs of the storm (Metro Washington, DC) we are just waiting for that first snow flake to make its appearance. We are told to expect at least 2 feet of snow and possible power outages. I am a little worried because this time "they" are using the word blizzard which indicates strong winds. The last time "they" did that we were without power for a week and our lines are buried. That was BC (before coal) but things still may get interesting this time around. I'm happy to say our house is battened down and ready.

The school system made the decision to close schools today yesterday afternoon and the Federal government is allowing unscheduled leave. Calling it early is blessing for those who have child care issues and such. For me it means I won't have to be on the bus with 40 excited elementary kids. That's a challenge anytime much more so when they are excited. I will use the found time this morning to go through my 72 hour emergency equipment and see that my lanterns are full and the batteries are good to go. I have extras. I also have a "big buddy" portable propane heater that someone else maybe using this weekend. :D Boy, it feels good to be prepared! Take care and enjoy the snow… or not, Lisa
