    Glad I live in MA...so I don't have to dig out my plows and pull all of the extension cords and chains and stuff off of the headgear.

    Thanks. I'm at work, so no tv here. And I didn't even see this earlier on weather.com

    That's going to cause some serious damage with all the new foliage. At least down here the trees are in full bloom.

    It's gonna be worse than the October storm...just as much foliage...more heavy snow. I'm happy I'm not getting the snow. One instance of a week of no power is enough for me....not to mention all the roads become 1 lane or less

    We changed our contract dates a few years ago, to Nov. 1st - April 1st. I don't remember a single plowable snowfall in April here in IL., so no need for the April 30th date!

    :dizzy: Is this for real? I would have never guessed it is cold enough anywhere in the lower 48 to snow.

    Al Gore must be so bummed! :cry:
