    Not up here :(

    Looks like we're be out of the loop up here in NW Vermont. Projections are for 1-3" at this point. Might get better, never can tell until it's all down. But, Dino, you want any help down there if it hits. I could have the 2500 with the Vee plow down there in a few hours if you get buried.

    Same here - being w-a-y in from the coast (north of Toronto) I don't think we'll get much out of this one. Had some snow yesterday, today warmed up & was sunny. Still, I don't think it's quite over for the season up here yet. March always brings something - usually wet, heavy snow.

    Hello,

    For those in jersey, check this out:

    http://www.sussexcountyinfo.com/

    Check out the WEATHER WATCH near the top center/right.
    This is where I've been getting my weather from, and so far, the guy has done much better than anyone else.

    Looks like history may be made, but I will wait till I wake up tomorrow. As for the weather channel, they can kiss my but. I refuse to even look there anymore. They have a total of about 8 inches from sun til tues. I think they are a little behind......as usual. They are useless. I'm glad I don't have cable and have to depend on them.

    Ohhh just got done reading my forecast for central new jersey. Only 26-32 inches!!!!! YIKESSS!!!!! I always get myself wound up before these snows hit and dont come back down until I'm sure we've got everything done. Snow action plan is in place, however the variables can keep you up at night with that big knot in the stomach. Prepare prepare prepare, with a little bit of prayer, and I'll come out the other side of this a very wealthy man.

    Hoping you guys get yours....and that this storm runs as smooth as 96. God bless Mother Nature.

    Yes,

    Yikes is the word. If we get what they are talking about so far all hell is going to break lose. Its going to be a real disaster out there. I feel bad for you guys that have to drive from job to job. I remember horror stories of trying to get to a job during the blizzard of 96 and getting stuck on a road for 3 hours because it wasn't plowed at all. Or my favorite is sitting on a road that the state police have closed off and you can't go anywhere.

    I'm glad to be 'stationary' during these big ones, but other things can happen......like our 1967 snowblast blower breaks down and we have to push the windrows off both sides of the runway with only a case 580 and a case 5130 farm tractor...........

    Good luck to all if this one hits!

    Millenium weather says 12-24, weather channel says 24+.

    too much IMO. But hey I will deal with it.

    the driving will be the kicker.

    24"-32" for us. It's supposed to start tomorrow aftrenoon and go till tuesday morning.

    BTW-steveair, I agrreee with you on the weather channel, during the last storm I was in one of the resuarnts that we plow getting some free food and they had the weather channel on. They said there was a 60% chance of 1-3" of snow. We already had 5" on the ground and ended up with 7". We have since deciced that the weather channel shoud swithch to cartoons.

    Anyway I hope you guys all do good and have a safe storm. Looks like this is gonna be a big one.

    Well the forecast has changed once again as they are prone to do and not entirely unexpected. However now that Ive dropped back to the 6-12 inch storm bracket my gut tells me that just cant be right if this storm is to last over 48 hours. If it does it will be a nightmare watching snow fall at 1/4 inch per hour (kinda like watching paint dry) so I'm thinking we'll end up with some higher amounts.

    My worst fear is that come tommorrow morning we have less then 6 inches of snow on the ground. If there is only a couple inches these properties will open for business, get all their employees in and then try to send them back home once the storm gets cranking. Then we will have total gridlock with idiots abandoning cars on the road. Oh how I hope that dont happen!!!!
