    Wait until the storm gets closer. We don't want to scare it. You know what always happens...Right after you mount the plow on your truck the storm seems to shrink. Let's make sure it gets closer and.... Bang!

    almost too late.

    Plow going on this afternoon. Would not want to be putting it on during the storm in the morning. Predicting 4-7 in worcester county.

    I hope the storm track changes a bit because they are calling for an inch of snow on the Cape. Suppose to mix with rain and sleet beacause of the warmer wind off the water. :cry:

    I have been avoiding eye contact with my plow, once the first flake flys then I will be out to mount it up!
    You guys leave some for Maine alright

    Attention! The storm is about to be downgraded from 6"+ to just a trace or 1". ( I just had to go out and put the plow on, I couldn't resist.)

    Plows will go on tonight around 7PM or so, though it seems the heaviest snow will be falling north and west of me.

    NOAA says 5-7"+ (NOAA has a Winter Storm Warning on my area with heavy snow), weather.com says 6-10"+ by tomorrow afternoon. I'm ready, I hope it really happens this time!

    Like they even know till it's on the ground how much we're gonna get for sure. All I know is, it's coming, and I want it. And on a friday, even better. They just said 6-12" here (coastal) in maine. BRING it ON.

    Joe Cupo better be right! I watched the same thing and he said he "thinks" that is what we will get.

    Conditions still VERY borderline for me but they are leaning towards a senario that would put me in the 6-12" band:bluebounc Its a matter of just how much warm air off the ocean the low starts to bring into se New England which depends in turn on how close the low passes to our area. Iam usually away from rain snow/line by 10-30 miles in these types of situations so it could really go either way. I wont be suprised if we end up with just 3" but its looking like more like 8" for me. I need to get on this early as it seems AM commute will be bad but I will end up on here, wx boards and checking weather until way too late. I can never sleep the night before:realmad:
