    Some models are showing the DMV and mid-Atlantic regions getting 24-34 inches in a massive snow storm expected to hit Feb 6 or 7 and go through the 10th...this is if the storm stays on path that it is currently on. Get the trucks ready - could be bigger than the. Blizzard of '98!!

    Come on Mother Nature this isn't funny anymore!

    I've got a lot of little nuisance things to fix on my trucks and I haven't been able to on account of all the snow and freezing weather.

    I was wondering if anyone else had heard about this "impending storm" I havent been able to find any information on any other websites other than a big "I dont know" However, I do know that there is supposed to be a lot of snow/ice/rain coming in this Monday and possibly lasting until Wednesday. Ive heard a lot of exaggeration from friends, acquaintances and on Facebook.

    Charles, that's a week to 10 days away. No one has certainty forcasting that far out.

    It was an outlier in a group of forecast models. My equipment will be ready...but I'm not running out to buy a new Bobcat just yet. I'll stick with my 1990 F-250 idi/8' Meyers and the Ford 340B Industrial tractor for now.

    Yes, I figured as much because all major weather forecasting services are very reluctant to even comment on it. I was just curious because this weather map showing a "Snowpocalypse" surfaced on Facebook. I have heard a lot of speculation regarding it and some say that it is a hoax and others are saying it is true. Personally, Im not too worried about it because the tractors are ready and I have enough gas to run the generator for a week.

    It was a true map not a hoax. Just a fluke run

    TWC has mentioned a possible Nor-easter this weekend but that's what it is, a possibility. All we can do is try to be ready for what ever comes our way. They still don't know for sure what the Tuesday/Wednesday storm is gonna do.

    You got to realize it is 5-8 days out with two storms in between. We will have a better understand Wednesday night/ Thursday

    It looks as if we are going to be getting some significant snow mid week this coming week... Feb 11, 12, 13. All the models have been in agreement for five different runs now.[​IMG]

    Hope so , it would be nice to have a few more to push instead of blowing thru so much salt all the time. Whiffy will you be on your waterfront site on Sat ? Daughter has a big comp down there this weekend.
