    Well, here it is, 6:11 p.m and NADA, NOTHING, ZIP!!!!!!!!
    By now we were supposed to have 5" on the ground then have to get ready for the real snow tonight(5-9").
    Now, all there saying for tonight is 3-5" when their original forecast for the area was 8-14"!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know why you should have had 5" on the ground by now, nobody has been saying that in the reports I watched. I would still expect at least 8" for your area, don't worry.

    Thanks for the encouragement Chris. I could use some about now. lol
    Actually yes, as the week progressed, the weather "experts" in this area were saying that Connecticut would be getting snow during the day and heavy snow well into the night.

    Btw, I've been a Sox fan since I was 14. The Sox finally winning it all still has not sunk in and I dont think it ever will. It was surreal. GO SOX!!
    The Yankees and their fans, broadcasters, writers, announcers, and radio talk show host FINALLY got their RED SOX JUSTICE!!!!! I truly feel it was destiny as well as the way they BLEW it was destiny.
    It simply could not have come in a more dramatic fashion. The loud mouthed, arrogant, think they know it all, dipstick Yankee fans got their payback in the sweetest way. :D :D :D

    I'm in north central PA. Didn't really start her until about 1pm. I have about 3" on the ground now. Real wet and heavy. Good luck.

    what i have learned over the last 7 years doing snow removal (and landscaping for that matter) is that the weathmen are there to get ratings for the news program. they will "stretch the truth" to say the least. it may be an honest assumption of what is possible... but that is much different then what is likely.
    i never get exicited until i open my door and see it accumulating for myself. i have customers calling the day before cuz they hear horror stories in the forecast... and i tell them to relax.
    last thursday, someone mentioned over 2 feet :rolleyes: for monday night.

    it will come,...

    Unless you live in the midwest. I wouldn't complain at all if we only got 3". Been snowing here all day, but just snow showers. Now accumulating to much. (1/2" - 1"). We are actually 3-4" away from average, but we got there in three storms and bunch of 1/4" to 1/2" dustings.

    Just be glad you get to go at all.

    Couldn't tell you when the last time we had plowable snow here in Iowa, so to those of you in the east, enjoy it while you can...
