Ummm lots more? That's my guess.
If you can't take snow stay out of NEPA.
On the other hand, vacations are good for the soul.

pkrplr1,
I usually check Accuweather.com for snowfall totals. It's a little obscure how to find the info...plug in your PA zip code. Click on today's weather. Scroll down to Temperature History and you'll see in small blue writing "More Historical data". Click on that link and you'll see the month's data. I have found it somewhat accurate and helpful when deciding whether or not to have the driveway plowed or not. I don't mind the snow at all; I just want to be able to pull into my driveway and garage! Thinking of investing in a good snowblower for next year. I figure it will pay for itself since we'll "plow" ourselves out.

ok ok here. i know how to check the weather. i usually talk to one or two people from the area so i thought i'd ask. we just got a fresh 16 inches at my house and i understand NEPA got less. i just thought i'd ask and find out just how much less. hell i even got to work on time after clearing out the fresh foot and a half. so now i'm gonna take a drive and clean up whatever amount the cabin got. effiing moron. can't take the snow? now i know why others get irritated with some of these simpletons

Why are the NEPA prevailing winds usually NE or E?

Because both NY and NJ suck...

honey i've lived in pa my whole life and about 45 minutes southwest of NEPA. my remarks were more toward the lady from NY talking to me condescendingly and suggesting i can't handle snow and may in fact need a vacation. maybe NEPA isn't for me?

i just got back and it looks like we got maybe 5 or 6 inches in wayne county which is 13 inches less than we got down here. snow doesn't faze me any more than any other average joe who's lived in pa for 49 years.

meanwhile i'm up there in the supermarkets and i get to have the likes of her and her NY personality and attitude (which grates on anyone from the other 49 states) jam up the isles. they stand in the isle ignorant as can be not moving for other shoppers and talking with that crappy accent which is worse than nails down a chalkboard. and they wonder why local people hate transplants...

then you give me step by step directions on how to check the weather. i've got the wheather channel bookmarked and i know how to use it just fine. like i said i talk to one or two people who live near where my cabin is and i was hoping for a quick non-detailed answer. i should have DM'd one of them so it's my fault. i thought you were being sarcastic along with the other lady from NY. if you re-read the thread maybe you'll get why i acted like a jagoff. my sincere apologies.

LMAO ..

I shop at Aheart's Food Market at Blakeslee Corners now & then.
I always go early in the am to avoid the "beautiful people".

One day, not too long ago, I was trying to get through the aisle, but Mr. Joe Joisey had the aisle blocked with his big butt and big head and shopping cart while he chatted on his cell phone - asking whether he should buy a 12oz or 16oz can of beans !!

I stood there for a minute, JJ gives me a look like I am the problem trying to get through, and turns around ignoring me.

5 seconds later my cart rolls into the back of JJ's legs, he lowers his phone and turns to me..

I told him that I usually say excuse me when I bump into someone, but in his case it is - make a management decision - get the big can of beans- get your FAT *** out of my way.

Something tells me that JJ may have been the same NJ nitwit that almost ate the rear bumper on my work truck when I applied the brakes a bit heavy one day on I80 when JJ was tailgating me with that darn phone glued to the side of his BIG JOISEY HEAD,,,

Thanks Goodness the Bulk of them stay west of the Pa Turnpike.
