    tymusic:cool:ussmileyflag:cool:Hopefully even if its exagerated, people will stock up on necessities and stay off the dang roads so we can get our job done, if and when it does happen.

    Don't worry the forecast will change 20 times between now and then anyway.

    Same thing here. They said it will be like the younger brother of the 93 storm. Now we just have to go through the normal up and downs of weather forecasting.

    Looks like it gonna be a mega flop... I was looking at the jet streams on weather tap and the upswing from the gulf is already east of the east coast.

    Bummer... (for me anyway)

    I'm all for advanced notice, but some of us (me...lol..) can't wait for big snow (which we never get anymore).

    The weather people need to shut up till they have a better idea what's going on....:realmad:

    I think mega is a little overboard. In other sections of the country they can get 5 feet and the next day the kids will be waiting will be waiting for the bus as usual. I didnt realize that less than 2 feet means mega around here. Maybe 5" and an inch of rain if we are lucky.

    As far as terms go I still like Thunder Snow better.

    Um as far as I have seen over and over it wont even come close to upstate New York. So if you heard the word "Mega" it must have been for a car dealer have a mega sale or something
