So, the Snowpocolypse II is upon us. Wish me luck as I enter battle with it. I have to drive to work for the next 5 nights. Bleh.

Who else is getting hit with this?

@Diest TKO,
Ha! My FB status a bit ago was "Snowmageddon!" It was, like, white-out for a while. If it was a bit colder we'd probably have a foot by now but it's wet and sleety and slushy on the ground, probably 4 inches of white stuff. Still going though and won't be letting up for a while.

@Diest TKO,
Im getting hit with all the news of this. Weather Channel folks are urinating on te floor with excitment as they up the snow totals. We started at 6 to 10 inches and now we are at 22 or greater. So much pulse pounding drama with these guys. Ever since weather became a ratings draw, I havent trusted the forecasts more than a day out.

S LANCASTER COUNTY PA. We are due for 22 to 31 inches. feh

@farmerman,
Yeah, DC is supposed to get 20-30 in as per current reporting and urine trails suggest.

@Diest TKO,
Mid-Atlantic ? My concept of that term is that it refers to the middle of the ocean, not the USA itself.

EDIT: Okay, I get it now. It refers to "Mid Atlantic States". For a moment I thought it could be heading for Europe.

@fresco,
Ha. Me too. However, If I say North-Atlantic, certain people flip out and huff and puff about mason-dixon lines.

@Diest TKO,
Finally, I get to watch someone else get plastered. Wink

New Hampshire is cold but dry.

Good luck down there.

@Diest TKO,

But I hear that NYC is only going to get a pitiful 1 or 2 inches! But I want more! Sad

Well, if it makes you feel better: southern California is cold, rainy and very windy.

@sozobe,
Tranna weather reporters seem to "claim" a Snowmageddon event at least once a season. Every now and then they're right. I think they just like to say it Laughing
