    Only a couple inches so far as we had freezing rain late morning and sleet for a few hours. Storm totals expected to be 6"-10"

    That's funny Zap, I hate it everybody knows me so well. Hey, I got both, and the old slammer is on a SS pipe now. But main thing is, and has been for 40 years, is that my arss is warm:cool:

    I knew that Zap, and absolutely no offense taken. In fact, I got a big chuckle out it, 'cause you might be right!. BB, BG, Pen and all the Mods give me a rough time about retiring the old buck, but we have been together too long and probably will die together;lol Besides, she has kept me warm too long to throw her out in the cold.;) The new little EPA Hampton is in the kitchen so they don't fight;lol

    The commuter railroad the serves the Northern NYC suburbs is shutting down at 10 tonight. I should be on the road at around 10:30. Hopefully I'll have the road to myself.
    Some of the guys are sleeping here tonight so they don't have to deal with traveling in the weather.

    The storm finally arrived about an hour and a half ago in NW Jersey. No wind yet, but the snow is piling up fast.

    It's starting to rip down in sturbridge, ma. I took the wonder mutt out for a walk about an hour ago on our road, visibility was about 5 feet. After 10 minutes she dragged my butt into the house, she's a nova scotian duck tolling who usually will lay in the snow all day if I let her! When we came in the snow was up to the first step of the back door, now as I smoke a cigar and drink some scotch :), the snow has crested the bottom of the back door (about two more steps), that is a lot of snow in an hour.

    If anybody is heading up 84, or the Pike, be safe out there!

    It's weird-we had some snow in the morning when I left for work. It turned to rain during the day and then the snow started around 8:30. I'm watching TWC right now and there's a reporter in Times Square talking about the Broadway shows getting out right now ;lol Be careful!

    Wow wasn't expecting so much. Still OK here.

    Nice thing about having a stove... If it goes out overnight we can just rollover and go back to sleep, knowing it will be warm in the am and we can deal with the rest then ...

    I am having flashbacks of Feb. 5 & 6 2010 here. 32" with 40 mph winds and then 20" more five days later. Seven days without power. Nine days to get out of the driveway.

    Hunker down folks. It ain't fun. And dangerous. Lotta people ain't gonna have power for days and days. Our power crews are saddled up and ready to head that way.
