    I can already imagine the phone calls .......I REALLY hope people realize that this is a big deal and aren't planning on going anywhere unless they REALLY have to. More than a foot of snow isn't a joke, let alone 2ft and being the first real snow of the year here, i'll be the wrecker companies make more than the plow guys this time around. Its going to be a complete mess. I love plowing and running my company but its dealing with the stupid people, even if its only a small percentage of my client base, that make me not look forward to storms like this!

    And that's why its 1am and i'm on the computer finalizing my route sheet even though my phone is going to be ringing off the hook tomorrow.

    The good that i do see out of this storm though, its going to separate the men from the boys REAL quick. I'm hoping that some of the commercials that I didn't get because they went with the cheaper guy get an enlightening experience with this storm!

    I know I'm in the 15-20" area in norfolk county. I'll be pushing the smaller piles from earlier this week so I have room in case it sticks around for a while

    Freezing drizzle will end this morning as temperatures warm up.

    This is a warning that an extended period of freezing drizzle is expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

    The light freezing drizzle over central and western areas of the province will end by this afternoon as temperatures warm up.

    A low pressure centre just off the Carolinas will continue to intensify as it approaches the region today. On Monday the low will move over Nova Scotia. Snow ahead of the system will develop tonight and then change to rain along the Atlantic coast. The snow will persist inland and over higher terrain. On Monday the snow will change to rain throughout and then change back to snow over the west and northern regions. Total snow accumulations of 15 to 20 centimetres are expected while up to 40 millimetres of rain is likely. Strong easterly winds will develop tonight and will gust to 110 km/h in the lee of the Cape Breton Highlands Monday morning. Winds will shift to the west Monday evening.

    The strong winds associated with the storm will give rough and pounding surf to most coastlines of the Maritimes on Monday. They will also generate storm surge which will combine with large tides to give higher than normal water levels. This may require storm surge warnings for Western Prince Edward Island and the north shore of Nova Scotia west of Antigonish. Along the Northumberland strait it will peak in the late afternoon. On the north shore of Prince Edward Island it will peak in the evening. For the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia water levels will be highest beginning near noon into the afternoon.

    Well,as I type this we are in like blizzard type conditions here in the Hudson Valley,NY,about 3'' on the ground,snow's coming down fairly fast,small flakes,you can just tell this is going to be a pretty good one.I'll probably go out about 11 or so tonight for the first round as it's not supposed to stop until late in the day Monday.Every report is different but if you average it,I think we'll get 10-12''.
