Snow fall in the North/East Friday & Saturday

Any one dare to make a prediction on how much snow you are going to get in the area you live in......I am looking at 24"

0" for us. Got an appointment to get the front end aligned next Tuesday and then we are good to go for some spring camping. Supposed to be close to 60 next week. Sorry Wade, just had to rub it in...

Well if we loose power due to this storm, we my end up in the camper to keep warm. Just have to fire up the generator. Your 60 degrees sounds nice, I'll take 50 degrees and be happy. We got 4" of snow last night.

They can't yet determine whether we will get snow, sleet or freezing rain so they are calling for all of it. If it is the freezing rain, that could be a disaster if power goes out for an extended time period. The camper is ready for short term but the battery will only last so long in the cold.

Luckily I wired our house for a generator and we can run all the esential things on electricity and propane. It's nice to have the RV as a lifeboat though. Hunker down and hang in there, spring will be along soon for ya.

On my way to work I heard 12" to 20" but that could change for more. We stocked up on TP, bread, milk, beer, wings, cheese (Super Bowl grub). I have a full tank of gas in case the power goes out. It won't hurt my feelings if it's just a couple inches. Jeeper how about emailing me some of that 60 degree weather. Or better yet someone please post a picture of a clear, warm, sunny day anywhere! I want to see green. White is getting a bit old!!

I think the other problem is the 30 mph winds. It will be interesting.

Most definitely, I just hope to get home before the worst of it starts [meaning the invincible people with 4 WD that start driving with their heads up their rear ends] they can go as fast as they like but they're not going to be able to stop any quicker. The majority of times I been in back-ups has been because of one of these geniuses running off the road out of control. Once I'm home I'll deal with the snow as needed. Just hope the power doesn't go off. We can go out in the motorhome but I don't think I could keep the satelite dish-dome clear.

ATTENTION!!! SPRINGTIME - We're ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am in Chantilly VA at work and we are preparing for this storm, I think we have everything in place to deal with this mess.

Our latest forecast is for 16 to 24" starting early tomorrow morning. 12 hours before the 2 footer we got in December, they were calling for 8 to 12". This may get interesting.

Well, Crapola. I just looked at the latest forecast, and now the predicted total is 20 to 28".

Statement as of 2:10 PM EST on February 04, 2010

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 6 am Friday to
10 PM EST Saturday...

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 6 am Friday to
10 PM EST Saturday.

* Precipitation type... heavy snow.

* Accumulations... storm total accumulations of 20 to 28 inches.

* Timing... snow will begin around daybreak Friday... and will
continue through Saturday evening. Conditions will deteriorate
rapidly by early Friday afternoon... with heaviest snowfall
occurring from late Friday afternoon through sunrise Saturday.

* Visibilities... heavy snow will reduce visibilities to below one-
quarter mile at times Friday night and Saturday morning.

* Temperatures... highs around 30 Friday. Temperatures will be in
the mid to upper 20s Friday night and Saturday.

* Winds... becoming northeast 10 to 15 mph Friday with gusts to
25 mph Friday night and Saturday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Conditions in this storm are expected to be comparable to those
in the storm of 19 December. Plan for substantial disruptions to
travel Friday afternoon through the weekend.

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow are
expected or occurring. Strong winds are also possible. This will
make travel very hazardous or nearly impossible Friday night.

Right with you Bill, we're ready with everything. DW went to the store yesterday morning. 3 hours just picking up necessities. I've heard so many different predictions and they seem to change by the hour.

Kim, thanks for the great pictures. It nice to see something other than snow. Be careful everyone that's dealing with this storm.
