    2-3 Feet of snow sounds like take a day off and snuggle in by the fire with your family. 2-3 feet of snow, driven by 70+ MPH sounds more like holy crap, nothing is gonna move for a week. .
    We had a storm hit two or three years back, where we got 8-10 inches driven by 40-50 mph winds - really big drifts that closed nearly everything down for about 2-3 days. I saw 4-6 foot high drifts that ran for a whole section on that storm. 2-3 feet at 70mph will sure stack it high. Those snow drifts will be crazy. Wish you guys all the best up there

    Let's see some picts if you guys can.

    I think the Weather Channel just decided to do that. No one else uses "Nemo". Although I like Nemo better than "Blizzard '13". Makes it more personal.

    Generator & snowblowers are all gassed up ready to go, plenty of reserve fuel, food and good high octane beverages (for medicinal use only of course ;) ) at the ready. Going out to do one more check around the house before everything is buried under 2+ feet of white gold and top off the inside rack. I love the winter, especially when we get these kind of storms. It's much more fun if you make it adventureous + I get to use my OPE toys! :cool:

    That was just my usual shopping list.

    Loaded up the fridge, the wood ring, gas tanks and the wine rack. I'm really glad it's happening on a weekend.

    Yes you do. You just save them and tack them onto words like pizzar.

    You guys get all the fun. I'm really getting bored with winters here in Ohio. I may have to move north if I can ever get the idea past the approval committee.

    Hurry up and drink those. They're only good till June. No sense taking chances.

    That's one of my favorite beers. I'm trying to brew a clone right now but it won't be ready for a few weeks.
