    Notorious Time for East Coast Storms

    There's just something about February when it comes to winter storms.

    Has narrative and maps of what is predicted from Thursday to Saturday....plus some great snow photos taken by NASA from space on p.4:

    I'm in CT and we now have a blizzard watch. 10-20+ inches of snow predicted with 40-50 mph wind gusts for tomorrow/Saturday...

    Everyone stay warm and safe!

    I've spent the better part of the past three days following the Jodi Arias' case proceedings and discussion here at WS. With this major snowmaker looming, I absolutely must go out today and run some errands, get my allergy shot, do some marketing. We've had minor snowfalls over the last few days with some accumulation, but the new storm could bring as much as 4-6 inches to Metro Detroit :snowflake:

    Stay warm and be safe.

    34" predicted for where I am in central mass. :eek:hoh:

    February was also when the legendary blizzard of '78 happened. I wasn't much more than a toddler, but I do remember the snow so high we were sledding down the roof of my house into the front yard.

    This is supposed to be worse than that.

    I usually shop on Friday mornings, but had to move it up to today. It's already a mob scene. Hitting the packy a bit later for my blizzard beer, hopefully they aren't wiped out. ;)

    It's unreal how many times the east coast is getting walloped!

    So far we've had a very mild winter, again....which means a ton of bugs again this summer. (My poor garden.) We are getting a light rain, need much much more as we are still in a drought.

    One to two foot of snow... 40 mile an hour winds....sheesh! Be safe and prepared my friends.

    Jaw drop is pretty much what I've been doing since I saw the snowfall prediction map lol. I tried another TV station, hoping maybe it was a mistake, and they gave 31". Not much better! :what:

    Also, I'm a very short person. If we get 34", that's about waist high on me lol.

    Oh well. Best thing about winter storms is if the power goes out, you can move your frozen stuff out to bury in the snow to stay good. Assuming you can get the door open, of course. :lol:

    When I was young many years ago and went to school

    There was never such a thing as a snow day.

    25 cm over 2 days is just a dusting here in central Ontario.

    Well, it might rain in Oklahoma later. (Don't hit me!) I love weather events and am jealous of this one.

    We are forecast for 4-8 inches. I am hoping that school is cancelled on Friday, even though it means unhappy kids. If it isn't, it means that I have to drive in it, because there are 2 seperate awards ceremonies that day, both of my kids are getting academic awards, and we have to escort my oldest to his hundreds day party. Not that I don't want them to go, but I don't want to get in an accident on the way there either.

    I agree the name is a bad omen. These late winter storms are always bad, but this season has been so extreme that it makes me even more nervous.

    Winter Storm Nemo Could Cripple Northeast

    http://www.wunderground.com/news/winter-storm-nemo-news-20130207

    Winter Storm Nemo, heading for New England, has the potential to be one for the record books. The nation's snow-hardiest people should proceed with caution, forecasters say.

    As much as 2 feet of snow could fall on a region that has seen mostly bare ground this winter, the National Weather Service said. That's exciting for resort operators who haven't had much snow this year.

    "This has the potential to crack the top 10 snowstorms all-time in Boston, dating to 1892, according to the National Weather Service," said Jonathan Erdman, meteorologist with The Weather Channel.

    The storm would hit just after the 35th anniversary of the historic blizzard of 1978, which paralyzed the region with more than 2 feet of snow and hurricane force winds from Feb. 5-7.

    "This has the potential for being a dangerous storm, especially for Massachusetts into northeast Connecticut and up into Maine," said Louis Uccellini, director of the weather agency's National Centers for Environmental Prediction......more......

    Those in this region please prepare and be careful !!

    Anyone know if New Jersey is due for bad snow?

    TIA!

    Best-
    Herding Cats

    PS: We are due for a wee bit of rain, very cold (for us), and winds tonight into Saturday. I'll take my weather over all of yours. Hugs and prayers for all...
