Was supposed to be rain and gusty winds up to 50mph. Started snowing hard at noon and hasn't stopped, about 4 inches so far at home, still windy. Whiteout conditions, took me an hour to get home which normally take 20 minutes.

Good call weather man

22 inches of heavy wet stuff!
Mom couldn't make it make it home from Jersey. We lost power. Checking the local news on the phone and F-book for the county and homeschool community. The county is a war zone. Phones poles down everywhere. Trees on fire from the poles, both roads up to Mt Pocono look that TV show " highway thru hell" cars all over the place, trucks jackknifed, looks like they never plowed.
House temp dropped to 50 degrees, but no lower.
Well pressure out because the well pump is electric. We can't camp out at home without running water, can't flush the toilets. Power company says they may get to our neighborhood by Wednesday the 7th. (Another Nor'easter coming 3/7)
National guard called to help. Electric crews from Southeast on their way.
We bugged out, threw out all in the fridge. Wife used Hotels.com to find us a hotel room. Fired up the 4x4, and snuck out on side roads that were down to one lane. Met Mom in Fairfield, NJ. All it did was rain here.
Renters insurance should cover it. We hope.

They were calling for lots of snow here. Not only did all the schools announce closings the night before, even Cornell decided to close in advance of the storm. I woke up Friday morning to a massive two inches of snow and clear roads! The humanity! Oh well, my oldest enjoyed having a 3 day weekend for his birthday.

Where did Spring go? Another day of 20+mph winds and temps in the low 40's with wind chills in the 30's. Seriously - it was 80 a week a go.

Nothing like the Nor'easter, but got some heavy wet snow with more on the way. Cancelled school today. Hope all are well!

Beautiful blue skies out right now. Not going to last for long. Looks like tomorrow and Thursday will be a mess. The wife is suppose to fly home from Toronto tonight then head to Boston tomorrow night. UHG!

This storm isnít even forecast to hit us. We might end up just on an edge of something and get an inch or two, but thatís about it. We had a light dusting overnight - just enough so I have to clean off my truck before running errands.
