    I figured i would start a thread for us because we seemed too be missing all the snow he last couple of years. Hopefully this year things will be better!! It is starting out cold enough. We have frost up too 8 inches or more and I haven't seen that for at least 10 years at this time of year. Usually the frost doesn't't set in deep until after the new year so may be that is a good sign!! Where getting a lot of ice because of the warmer air above over riding the cold air below but I have a feeling that will change.

    The mad man on Accu weather is still hot on a huge storm for the 17th!! Lets hope things come together and we get a big storm like we deserve after two years of crap.

    There still is snow in the forecast for Thursday and Thursday night so maybe that will get us started too a better year!!

    ya i'm a regular henry watcher. I think we'll see a good push on Thursday and Friday, then the weekend strom all depends on the track. If it goes out to sea some be could be getting clobbered. A foot or more for Boston, Philly, NYC, CONN., and north. We'll see. I hope it does, time is payup.

    I feel this storm is going too be a real tough one because it is going too be coming down at a 1 to 2 inch per hour clip for several hours, and it will be right at or during the evening commute with terrible visability. Every one be cautious and play it safe untill people get home and settle in.

    ya good thing is our trucks are assigned to different accounts so theres limited driving around involved, only like a mile or so but tomorrow that could even be a hassle. i love to see state trucks stuck in traffic on the mass pike. not really....but really haha

    Technical Discussion: Detailed Forecast
    A Descriptive Look At Connecticut's Weather Forecast

    UPDATED: 5:21 pm EST December 12, 2007

    Good Wednesday Evening

    The National Weather Service has issued HEAVY SNOW WARNING for all of Connecticut with the exception of the shoreline, where a WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect

    Here comes WINTER STORM ALEXANDER, the first named winter storm of the season! Alexander will be a quick hitting storm and it will bring more than 6 inches of snow to parts of the state. Snow will likely develop by noon tomorrow across much of the state. The snow will become steadier and heavier during the afternoon, which means the Thursday afternoon drive home is going to be quite slippery with plenty of snow on the roads by then. Snow will taper off and end shortly after midnight tomorrow night, and we should have fair skies for the Friday morning commute. Total snowfall will range from 6 to 10 inches across most of the state. However, the shoreline may see some sleet and rain mix in for a while keeping snowfall totals in the range of 3 to 6 inches in cities like Groton and New Haven.

    Alexander will be a quick hitting storm with the center passing off the Mid-Atlantic Coast and to the south of Long Island. The air will be cold enough for snow across most of the state tomorrow even though we saw highs in the 40s and 50s today.

    We'll get a break from the stormy weather Friday and most of Saturday, but the next system will be coming in for Saturday night and Sunday. This one should be a big Nor'easter, but the storm closer to the coast could bring milder ocean air into parts of Southern New England. Thus, we may have to deal with snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain. A storm track closer to Cape Cod would mean more snow. A track closer to New York City will mean more rain. Since the storm hasn't even formed yet, we really can't pin down the exact track this early. However, it does looks like we will get heavy precipitation and possibly some gusty winds too, especially for shoreline communities. Stay tuned! We'll keep you posted.

    Enjoy the rest of your week despite Storm Alexander!

    I've got it made like that too, I'm assigned to one account for the duration, unless help is needed elsewhere.

    Time to make some money this storm, not like the last one with slush.

    Wow! We have a super storm heading our way and no one seems too be interested. We might get enough to get out and make some money so lets not get down. This winter is already way ahead of last year at this stage. I think we will be sick of plowing before the winter is through!

    I would't put the plow away yet. A lot could happen with a storm this size moving in, Even all sleet we have too plow. Last year we had a 8 to 10 inch sleet storm that i plowed for 21 hours straight for my town.

    Well, just started to get some flurries here in south western MA.
    Looks like just north of us is getting 4-8inches while south is getting 1-3 inches. We are looking at 1-4 then sleet/freezing rain and possibly all rain.
    From what I have seen so far south of the MA border in CT. they are expecting a third of an inch of ice on top of the snow and then changing to all rain tomorrow.

    Not excited for the wintery mix but since I plow a bunch of banks and other commercial accounts who are not open tomorrow I have the whole day to clean up whatever mess we get.

    Unfortunately, the Pats are playing at 1 PM tomorrow! Looks like I'll be listening to it as opposed to watching it.
