Snow Storm Week of 2-10-14

Although AccuWeather is predicting a foot here, the National Weather Service has just, simply issued a hazardous weather alert for the area. That's one step below a winter storm watch and two steps below a winter storm warning. How can there be two seemingly opposite forecast predictions 36 hours out?!!?

I still haven't shoveled the entire driveway from the last frozen slop that fell mercilessly from the sky. No point in doing it now. I surrender! I'm just doing enough to get the cars in and out, screw it!!!

My sister and Brother-in-Law live in Raleigh NC. They are waiting for the entire state to get paralyzed as it did last week. They grew up in PA & NJ so they are used to it, but there are a lot of lifelong residents who will not have a clue what to do. For their area, it's the ice that's going to get them.

In case it wasn't obvious, I kinda fashioned this thread after Freddy's Coffee House. Seems a weekly check in for all the storms this season seems appropriate,......if not maddening! bop2

They are predicting between 1" and 9" for us.....that should cover anything that happens!! Maybe they are finally tired of being wrong so they are trying 'overly vague' as a strategy!

Reminds me of the guy i was playing golf with, we are on an island green and he comments that the putt is going to break toward the water. He was serious and didn't understand why we were laughing so hard.

That's exactly what happens! I'm an hour Northeast of Raleigh. We moved from NJ 3 years ago. This state just closes down when a few flakes start falling. Its amazing! They already sprayed some salt Brine on our road, in preparation for tomorrow, It does NOTHING after 1 inch or more falls.
Our Subarus still get us around while everyone else sits it out.

Well, I think the Weather channel discovered "PROOF" that coal burns hotter than other fuels.
Snow surrounds our town, but nothing falling here. The map shows that "2" Coal stoves are in operation. ;) :o 8-)


Hey, that's gotta be as good as Gore's proof, huh? :lol: :lol:
