    A new thread to either curse or praise current weather in your location!

    I'll start.

    What in the world is heading at me. Anybody west of MA know whats coming yet? I got 6 inches of snow the other day but they are claiming this one might be the worst storm every recorded for Boston. Lucky for me I work at a non-stop manufacturing plant where absence due to weather is not allowed.

    They have no clue down here. They're saying anything from rain to 6" to we don't really know, but batten down the hatches.

    I'm not terribly amused. We have a plow, wheel weights and chains on the mower, but my boss' husband has a sweet Dodge Ram 1500, lifted with light bar, and a plow. Anything over 8" and they'll plow me out - again.

    Ya I am hearing between 10 inches to 3 ft not including the 60mph gust drifts... this could get interesting.

    I just heard in some areas you could get 2-4 inches an hour.
    Now that is a snowstorm :happy175:
    When the wife was teaching at Harvard I was over visiting one weekend and a good storm came through. ( think it was like 18-20 inches) Of course you know how visitors parking is like ( Brookline area) so Liberty is parked like 4 blocks away. Couldn't even get to it or wasn't any use to. Next morning people are trying to walk up the streets, falling over, stuck. Then people tried driving so cars sitting everywhere in the streets as well, it was quite funny really.
    We're only getting 2-4 here
    So good luck to you all over there !!!!

    Pretty much the same here in Sterling. They say "A lot of Snow & Rain" but no clue as to how much of each. They did tell me how warm it will be in 2115 though, so I have that to look forward to. :icon_lol:

    My parents and one brother like in northern CT - and the snow forecast is unbelievable. My other brother lives in Buffalo and their snow forecast is nothing.

    Gotta love the weather...

    Hey guys,

    Your weather is that bad it's making the news on my side of the pond.

    Stay safe!

    The weather dudes are telling us it's going to land here on Wednesday, or Thursday. We've not really had snow yet, so kinda looking forward to it. It'll be a nice test for us :)

    We normally wimp out if it gets deeper than 1".

    Just switched from rain to snow an hour ago here. Temp is dropping and the wind is howling from the north. Everything but the road is white.

    Nothing here yet in upstate NY. It is supposed to start in the afternoon and we are supposed to get 3-6" or 6-8", maybe less depending on where exactly you are. The weather perps are still being iffy about it. All of the major snow and blizzard they are talking about is going south of here. (Albany NY south to NYC and along the eastern coast from DC to Maine)

    The forecast here was dead on target as we did indeed get snow and rain. As for how much of each before it ends, they're still not willing to say.
