Hey sparky! I’m in central Mass and they’re predicting 18plus inches for my area. We are at a relatively high elevation (relative to other MA towns, not particularly high otherwise) and we tend to get the higher amounts anyway. Could be close to 2feet. Stuck in the house with the post Christmas kids and probably no power…oh why oh why oh why…
But it’s New England and it’s not like it’s a surprise that we’re getting snow and as much as I complain, there’s a certain rush that comes with these forecasts… it’s fun watching everyone panic like we live in FLA and they’ve never seen snow, elbowing each other for the last loaf of bread, tackling the woman with the last gallon of milk. That’s right, I’m putting my pads on and heading to the store with the rest of them. Might take a hockey stick with me this time.
They’re predicting 6-12" here in Philly, though it hasn’t started yet.
Since I was sick yesterday and the day before, I was kind of looking forward to leaving my house today, but since I’ve got bread and milk (and toilet paper), staying home seems like the better part of valor.
here in philly they are saying 10-15 inches. happy boxing day!
the snow is slated to start at noon, and be at peak snow at 8pm in time for the pigeons (eagles) and vikings to play. the nfl is in charge of the game and it is very rare for them to put a game on hold. it should be a wild game!
Boston metro area here. I expect a foot or so, lots of wind. I’m making sure all my devices are fully charged so I don’t have to go a whole day without computer games.
I just saw someone interviewed on channel 7 who had been waiting outside Stop & Shop for it to open so he could buy water and something else. He expressed confusion about why it was closed at 6:30am. Because yesterday was Christmas and they haven’t re-opened yet, ya moron! I assume they’ve reopened by now (it’s 9:30) and that poor soul was able to get the supplies he needs to get through this end-of-the-world event.:rolleyes:
We’re in Philadelphia visiting family; supposed to start driving back to Indiana tomorrow. I expect that we will be setting out a little later than normal (have to dig the car out of its parking space first I suspect). Hopefully most of the roads will be cleared by then…
hey runestar, the major roads, i95, 76, the expressways should be cleared, the major city streets will be good. it is the small neighbourhood streets that get locked it.
west of the city should be good tomorrow, the major roads of the city should be good by noon tomorrow. sleep in, get some coffee at wawa, and watch the natives look like they think they live in southern california. they crack me up in philly.
It just started here a bit before 5pm in North Central MA. It’s cold enough that it’s a light, fluffy snow, which is a lot less dangerous and easier to deal with than the heavy wet stuff they’re supposed to get towards Cape Cod.
