    I hear that 2-3 feet of snow will fall (or slam down), with winds of 60+ mph, like a winter hurricane. All of you be as safe and well prepared as possible. Best hopes and prayers are going forward for you.

    I remember the Blizzard of 1978 - 1979 in Ohio. Recently out of college, I was snowed in, dug out of my one apartment door with a broom, and found no heat, but high winds inside the building at work. We worked in our coats in the restaurant and provided free food and coffee to all snow plow operators. The customers wore coats, but they still came in.

    Let us know some updates!

      I talked to my friend in NY today she wasn't at all worried so I will just worry for her and my brother he also lives out east.

    I hope everyone back there will be safe. I read a few days ago that people were stocking up for a long stay inside. Hunker down, Hubbers, and stay warm.

    I was just looking at pictures of the 1888 snow storm in New York - hope this current one will not be like that.

    Facebook and Instagram down is the big news at the moment, Twitter is still up. People are tweeting the storm hasn't really hit yet.

    I guess facebook is back up now (was down for 40 minutes) lots of pics pouring in of the snow piling up. But most saying it's not as bad as predicted.

        Thanks Phyllis. I'm on the West coast, warm here, almost Spring. Just watching it on my Twitter feed.

          Ohhhh - I thought you were back east.  Well, stay warm and safe anyway. I am in Nevada and have  a lot of friends back east.

    All the talk about "what might be biggest and worst blizzard in all of life" certainly is ominous.  New York seems to be the biggest target of this storm.  I'm in Massachusetts.  Not near the coast, so there's that.  Plows have already come through my "Bumpkinville" neighborhood, so I'm just taking advantage of still having power (knock on wood) and hoping it stays that way.  Wishing safety and lights and heat to all as this "biggest blizzard in all of life" makes it way on by.

    The storm warnings got a major downgrade early this AM.  I grew up back East, so I know that's a good thing.  Still will be an intense storm but should be less deadly.

    "Snowmageddon" has not lived up to the hype thus far here in New Jersey. We were told to expect an epic, historic Class 3 Kill Storm, but as of this morning we've had about six inches. Pffft.

    That is good news. The weather is really unpredictable.

    I live in "mid-state" where the snow was supposed to be up to 24".  When I looked out the window this morning I thought perhaps I woke up in another land.  Maybe 2"!  I think someone made an error in judgement unless we're getting 22" tonight.  I will say the wind was blowing during the night but the results this morning are far from the storm of the century.

    Hubber Bob Bamberg in Southern Massachusetts posted on a Q & A that his area had about 18" to 24" around 8:30 AM and said he saw drifting snow and felt gusty winds. I hope people don't lose power and am glad others are not receiving the blizzard they expected.

    Hope this is not considered spam -

    Long Island has 18" so far(at least where I am) and the road hasn't been plowed.
    It's still coming down 2-3 " an hour. I know  New England has a lot more, but they are used to it.
    The best part of this is the quiet. big_smile

        Yes, the quiet is a wonderful treat...and now that the roads are plowed, stores are open and walkways are shoveled ,it's time to sit in a cushy chair with the heating pad! wink
