Better tuck in everybody, this storm is a big one!  :eek:

It won't be bad in my area until Saturday afternoon or evening, but some of you are already in the thick of it.

We're supposed to get 8-12 inches here, and right now it is 11 ºF.  Stay warm and safe people!  :hugs:

I think it got up to 10ºF today, and there's an inch or two on the ground.  The worst is supposed to come through overnight.

Where I am in the mountains, I could get up to a foot of snow.  Places like NYC, NJ, and Philly are supposed to snow at first, then change to rain overnight.  Boston will get snow, then rain overnight, then snow again in the morning!  :huh2:  (That sounds messy!)

:hugs:  (((((((((Everyone)))))))))  :hugs:

It's a bit messy out...Mom cleared the walkway without much trouble.  It's 37 degrees out and it's a bit of a rain/snow mix.  Stayin' in and stayin' warm.

Yeah, it's snowing and not fun.  But the roads aren't too bad.  Supposed to snow all night so we'll see.

Looks like 8 inches of the stuff so far, and the road is completely white.

It was supposed to start here at about 5pm-- it actually started before 2oclock.  It was bitterly cold, down in the teens, and windy, so the chill creeped into the house.  However, by this morning it had warmed up into the 30s and the snow changed to rain about 7am.  I think we probably got about six inches, but I'm not sure.  The temps dropped again after noontime, though, and we got some freezing.  Shoveling was difficult.

It got down to zero this morning, and only made it up to the low 20s. It's been snowing fairly heavily most of the day and we got a pretty good accumulation.  It's still flurrying heavily now.  Big flakes, swirling around.  It's pretty.

And a friend said it was -12ºF at her house this morning.  :eek:

It stopped snowing at some point overnight and it got up to a little over freezing today.  Cleaning off the car wasn't too much of a hassle.

It'll be really messy here in the next several days.  First, the temps will go up, then we'll have rain, then the temps will drop and then snow again.

We got about 6 inches of snow last night/this morning, but the bad stuff is here now, and it's not more snow. It's down to about 3 degrees with 20mph winds, and the expected lows by 6am Monday, will be around -17 degrees. I have a feeling morning chores are going to be a bit chilly. :lol:
