    Getting nasty here now. Stuff is slamming into the house (tree branches I guess.) Few inches on the ground, and the town plow actually made a pass up my street. Lights have flickered a few times.
    Planning on checking on my boat at high time (9:30 PM). I wonder how the cops are going to feel about that.

    Steve,
    Let us know when you are home safe. I am going to drink until you get home to relieve the stress. !!! Really though, I am genuinely worried that you all make it through this storm OK. And that sure will be a nasty drive.

    Plows have been going by the house seemingly every 15 minutes. I can see lots of branches hanging low in the back yard. Per the news there are scattered small outages all over but we are fine so far.

    Home alone tonight . . . wife is working a double. Volunteered to do so . . . figured if she didn't volunteer and make the offer in return for getting off next Wednesday she might be mandated to work it anyway and not get a day off next week. It will be 16 long hours for her.

    Not much here . . . I'm hearing it really depends on where you are in Maine . . . and I hear the bulk of the storm really hasn't got here. We've got maybe 2-4 inches of powder here -- it's so "dry" and cold that it squeaks when you walk on it. Wind is just starting to pick up now, but the snow from this other storm hasn't come in yet.

    Just heard it so keep your eye on the weather for the east coast, I'm sure we will hear more this weekend or week.

    Maybe I should find out who the hearth.comers are in the Ephrata PA area, in case I need a warm place to stay if I get hung up in weather.;)

    In PA you might be safe but I do like your idea.

    Edit; You might not be safe, I like your idea better. I thought it was more in central PA, I was wrong.

    Yeah Zap, I think the best idea is to just have a warm place to hold up. Gotta be somebody from Ephrata on hearth.com. In January when I was there, I saw lots of Class A chimneys sticking up from roof tops.;)
