    Epic Snow Storm for Mid-Atlantic

    The DC/MD/VA area is looking at a snowstorm that is being called "epic" and and a possible "snowpocalypse"... our local weather guy just said that it will probably in the top 2 of historical snow storms for the area. We are talking in feet! So hold on tight fellow mid-atlantic dwellers, we are in for a whopper. To those not in the area: keep us in your thoughts and prayers... this storm has potential to be extremely dangerous and destructive.

    They keep changing the count on us... it just went up to 30 inches by tomorrow and that it will be blizzard-like tonight, if not a certifiable blizzard. Mind you, this is on top of the snow that fell weekend before last and the little snow blip we had a few days ago. Crazy weather!

    the infamoous blizzard of 78 it is rumored they only forecasted flurries for the day it started (ironically, it was feb 6, which is tommorow) so now any time there's even a hint of snow in the air, everyone stocks up on food 3 days in advance lol

    WOOHOO! They dismissed school at 12:30 today! I went on my usual weekly trip to the grocery store and was bowled over by the crazies wanting bread, milk and TP. Yowza!
    It is really coming down in that fine blizzard-like way.

    A true storm to be remembered. It was amazing the impact it had here for over a week+! I won't lie, though. It was truly cool to just have to walk everywhere and talk with people. Life slowed down. Pleasantly.

    You should have seen the traffic today. No doubt that no one here believes we will not be touched by simple flurries here this weekend. I have errands to do tomorrow. Probably should carry the old rosary beads for road safety!!!!

    We're just North of Philadelphia, and it's been fluctuating between 6-8 and 8-12 inches forecast here.

    Unfortunately we're expecting a baby any moment, which means it will probably happen midnight tonight right about the time the conditions are supposed to be "blizzard like."

    Prayers that the baby decides to stay in "mommy's belly" for at least another 24-48 hours!
