Snowstorm Bearing Down On East Coast

While that's not a picture of me treating the driveway, the same scene will be repeated here later this evening as up to a foot of snow will be falling in the DC area today. All in all it's been a mild winter in the Mid-Atlantic, as this will be my first snow shoveling of the season...

I just got done clearing a foot of snow out of my driveway. I do have an old but pretty good snow blower. Is the DC forecast about the same? I saw the NYC forecast on Drudge, and I'm glad I'm not there.

Ohhh, how I wish for the good old days of global warming.


Actually, not. I love the snow & cold, it just makes summer that much sweeter.

My son bought a skimobile this year - usually it's already 3-4 feet deep but we've been missing the snow lately although not this tme. It's not as cold as it has been but it's still not a foot deep out there yet. We've been thanking him (my son) because we haven't been hit hard this year - the rest of the country has, though, and they are not used to it. Although it's not as cold ie only 10 degrees, it feels a lot colder due to the wind. I'm on the line between 12-20 inches here in NH. I'm hoping this will be the only really bad storm of the season. I have a new wheelchair and I'd like to try it out.

I can't help myself, this entire 'emergenceeee, emergenceee, emergenceeee" thing about snow storms in urban areas in the East seems so false. I mean, try ten feet of snow on a normal day all over your front drive, lower story and front door and that's in September in the Colorado Rockies. I swear, emergencies about two feet of snow is beyond my capacity to keep a straight face, particularly after having dug my own way, myself, out of more snow drifts and blizzards than I can reiterate here, and usually having a great time doing so.

John S.:

10 feet of snow in Colorado? Well, maybe. Your weather forecast is for 65 degrees today and at least 50 degrees each day for the rest of the week. We're below zero every day for at least another 2 or 3 weeks in the northeast. Have you ever seen a city? There's tall buildings, sidewalks and paved roads and every square inch must be cleared. If you get 20 inches of snow, there's no place to put it. The only option is to load it into 10,000 dump trucks and drive it 50 miles into the country, the process takes weeks. We used to drop it into the harbor, but the dipshits at the EPA decided we should no longer dump water into the ocean.
