Well the NWS has now issued a blizzard watch for my area, how about the rest of you folks?

Just at the edge of it, we are expecting 12-14 inches, which in Maine is just a dusting, but I have four tons of pellets, propane for the stove and I'm getting gas for my gennie tonight!
man I hope no snow cuz I'll be working OT then to remove it.....I'd rather have the time off at this point!
Wood in case we loose power-check!
Gas for snow removal and genny-check!
Did I miss something?
Here is a link to a severe weather map so you can check your neck of the woods.
Nope...You got it covered
Well.... it looks like 1"-3" or 3"-6" (local news) here.....boy that narrows it down......
If all else fails I have access to close to 100 quilts. I won't be cold ;-).
This the storm warning for my area:
"Accumulations...8 To 12 Inches...With Locally Higher Amounts
Possible In Heavier Snow Bands Whose Exact Location Is Still
Too Early To Determine.
â€¢ Impacts...Extremely Dangerous Travel Conditions Developing Due
To Significant Snow Accumulations...And Strong Winds Causing
Considerable Blowing And Drifting Of Snow. Visibilities Will Be
Near Zero At Times...With Whiteout Conditions Possible."
Let's see....plenty of pellets, just cleaned the stove again, full 100gal propane tank for the generator, and about 400 Gal of HHO. Driveway markers are out for plow guy, and plenty of left-overs from Christmas......guess I'm ready (but I still HATE snow >:-( )
Local news is saying 12 to 20 inches for us! Good thing I am in no hurry to get out for a few days. It is what it is and We have been lucky for a while now. Bound to happen. I just hope its light stuff and easy on my poor old back!
I hope so too....the leaf blower will get a good workout for that kind of snow.....much easier than shoveling!
All they are saying for us at the moment is more than 12" and possible 50 MPH winds.
That is why I have a snow blower, it sure has come in handy since we moved in here a few years ago. It was the second thing we bought for the house, the first was a nine foot Christmas tree.
I don't have a snow blower, but I do have 2 kids home from college who will be working off their tuition by shoveling whatever we get.
LOL, there "ain't" enough snow that can fall in order to pay off that bill.
I need to pickup some gas for the genny/thrower and I just noticed the tire on the snow thrower is flat (off the rim), but beyond those items, just a matter of hunkering down and dealing with any related power loss that comes about. Life in NH during winter...
i have to buy a generator sunday. if i buy a gas power inverter would that be better then just a plain generator?
Well, we're looking at anywhere from 12-24" here in NJ...unfortunately our new stove is still crated in the garage :-S
Oh well, Merry Christmas everyone! Stay warm!
ataboy jay....Pellets check
gettin gas for genny,snowblower and snowmobiles...check!
wife is grocery shopping in am....food check
pellets and marine battery .....check
Im good to go
No Active Advisories
Hope you plan on getting that stove installed by Dec. 31 if you want the 30% Tax Credit.
* Location... the counties of Adams... Dauphin... York...
Lancaster... Lebanon and Schuylkill.
* Precipitation type... snow... possibly heavy at times Sunday
...evening into early Monday.
* Accumulations... potential for 6 to 10 inches.
No generator or battery backup. Need to get some fresh kerosene. Used that for a week during the ice storm of '99. Keep a case of water on hand. Flashlights in every room. Snow-thrower gased up and facing the garage door. But, won't go outside until the storm is all over.
Just watched the weather. They are saying it is a "super winter storm" with some characteristics of a hurricane. Looking for a foot to 16 inches, (snow!) It is coming in from the ocean so good chance it will be that heavy stuff.
Don't forget to keep your pets safe!
Just a winter storm watch here in northern Aroostook county
You can have it out east, we have had enough here to last us awhile!! LOL ;-)
Looks like this one will miss PA ....WHOOOHOOO!
