Storm coming

I guess the Hudson Valley is dead center on this one.

18-24" of the white stuff. This will take a while to clean up. Better get ready as I bet we lose power. Shoprite will be cleared of bread, milk and toilet paper... don't ask, I have no idea. Liberals are a strange bunch.

This will be good for you Simon. You get to skip the wind and much of the bitter cold, so it is time for things to average out.

We are only supposed to get 6" (or maybe a foot, depends on which channel I watch), but they are all saying 30-40 mph winds are coming with it. I will probably test-fire the generator tonight.

Good idea. I ran my house on the Generac for 45 minutes yesterday.

Today's newspaper says "It's reasonable to believe that most people will see a foot or more". No warm weather in sight for after the storm. We may have more snowmobiling to do.

But maybe not as strange as someone who tries to politicize a snowstorm. :lol: Around here the cleared shelves result at least in part from the fear of teenagers confined to the house for a day or two instead of being occupied by their normal school and activity schedules. We have 3 of them in the house, and we made sure yesterday on the milk and bread (I'll leave the TP out of it for now...). The oldest one was long ago nicknamed the Walking Gizzard (in homage to Jethro Bodine) and his walk-up theme is "The Eggplant that Ate Chicago". All 3 have like 0 body fat and the metabolism of an Alaska pipeline construction worker. The bread offers the possibility of using decoy piles of sandwiches or French toast to stave off attacks on the main food supply. The milk, served a pint at a time, temporarily dulls the appetite. Hope this helps, CN.

PA's Gov. Wolf has announced limited state of disaster. My local town has declared snow emergency, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Got the plow hooked up to the truck yesterday, truck's fueled up, generator test ran yesterday, 3 five gallon cans of gas (left over from Maine sled trip), snowblower test ran yesterday. Chimney cleaned this morning ....................so I'm good to go.

Then get an email from a customer telling me that he gets no snow days but his wife does. And can I work on his car tomorrow while she is off ??? They are predicting anywhere from 12-20" here again depending on who you listen to with the brunt coming in the early morning. Yep I'll get right on it. In fact drop it off and I'll do it overnight.........

The first couple of years of her life living out in the backyard bushes as a stray has made her a good weather forecaster.

Normally, in cold weather she sleeps on the red towel under the not-as-warm right end of the stove. When she starts sleeping under the much hotter oven area, I know we're in for really bad weather. ;)

Snow should start falling here in about an hour. 4"-7" forecast. Up to 30 mph wind gusts. Nothing like what most of you will be seeing east of here.
