We're in for it too. 60% chance of rain after 4:00 P.M. and high for the day in the low 60's. Imagine that - RAIN! I feel your pain.

Hold the fort! Gotta pack up and move. Upper 50s here in January is soooo boring.

Hope you're well prepared and weather the storm. Sounds brutal. Haven't experienced storms like that since I was in Korea. I think Kim Il Sung sent them down to us.

Thanks for the invitation but we will be in (I hope) sunny Mexico. I told DH not to worry because I saw on Trip Advisor that they have had "Super Bowel" parties on the beach down there.

It sounded kind of scary to me. I wonder if that's what happens when you eat too much chili. Will bring Depends. I can wear Depends under a bikini, right?

I've been following the northeast storm news and thinking about you folks out there. Seems like you're getting more than your fair share these last couple of years.

Keep a watch for any animals who need help. Thankfully, the temperatures there don't look that bad. I spoke to a client in Montpelier, Vermont yesterday who told me that she doesn't worry about snow or cold; they have it every year. I know that you have plenty of supplies, but I hope that you bought a generator.

The 8-14 day forecast shows a 90% chance of colder than normal temperature for your area but also lower than normal precipitation except for western New York and the New England coast.

It's too bad that you didn't buy the gym membership; you'd have a very good reason not to go.

Am beginning to wonder if the Patriots plane will even take off to get here??? That would be something if they were snowed in and could not play in the Super Bowl, huh? Then who cares if they deflated their balls or not.

Stay safe out there all you east coastians ! NO SHOVELING for you !!!!

^^^ OMG did not think of that!!!!!!!!! Too funny!

negirl and in_ne, I hope you're well stocked.

Thanks for the well wishes barb, but my shovels are at the ready. Hopefully we'll only get the 4 to 8 inches and no more.

Have a great day, all

3:00 p.m. ... the air is heavy with the feeling of snow/storm, but a flake has yet to fall. If the weather industry is not correct on this one, no one will ever believe them again.
