    heard it first on the NOAA channel on my cb and didnt believe it and went home and checked NWS.com ... some reports are saying 8-16" with the peak being 1"/hour and others are reporting 3-5" ... ill be happy if we even get an inch!! :cool: im a little worried though about the trees still having some leaf's on them though, i got the plow all hooked up and checked out and its ready to roll!!! :gunsfiring: also made sure the husky chain saw was all ready to roll just in case we get some down trees...

    Yeah, NOAA's saying total accumulations to be 8-16" here in Cobleskill- I'd be happy to see half of that- not that I'm plowing but it'd be nice to have some white stuff on the ground, at least for a little while! Hopefully a sign of things to come in NJ when I'm home for about a month to plow payuppayup

    This storm has been a funny one to watch the "weathermen" forecast.

    Watched the news Yesterday @ noon, just rain here in the hudson valley, snow in higher elevations, nothing much. Watch the news @ 6, perhaps some flakes in the afternoon in the valleys, nothing major, mtn's may get 3-6". Watch the news this morning, all bets are off, valleys may get up to 4" by evening commute :redbounceand anything over 1000' 8-16":dizzy: They have no idea whats going to happen.

    Got the plow ready just incase, I guess we'll see by this evening what's really going to happen.

    By the radar it looks like a nice storm. Anybody have anything to report with measureable snow as of yet?

    All we have here in Utica is rain... Still find it hard to believe we'll get what they say tonight... I'm up pretty high here, and all we had was a little sleet early this morning. Guess we'll see...
