Bring it on......


The weather guessers are calling for snowpocolypse tomorrow night, into Saturday. Anywhere from five inches of fluff, up to "Where the hell is my car!?!".

Given that, there is something just so... satisfying.... about having a fresh cord of wood under tarp in the driveway, and a front porch groaning from it's own stack of dry wood. Add in a fridge full of Yuengling beer, good steaks, mushrooms, five kinds of cheese, and other assorted goodies.

Snow? Oh Yeh.... bring it on. Let it fall, baby!

SNOW WILL MOVE INTO THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS DURING THE LATE MORNING
AND EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS FRIDAY...OVERSPREADING THE REMAINDER OF
THE REGION BY NIGHTFALL. SNOW IS THEN EXPECTED TO BECOME HEAVY AT
TIMES...ESPECIALLY OVER THE AREA SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 80 FRIDAY
NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING.

THE SNOW WILL TAPER TO SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS OVER MOST LOCATIONS
BY MID DAY SATURDAY.

SNOWFALL TOTALS BY THE TIME THE STORM WINDS DOWN SATURDAY ARE
EXPECTED TO AVERAGE IN THE 7 TO 10 INCH RANGE IN AREAS SUCH AS
JOHNSTOWN...ALTOONA AND LEWISTOWN. AMOUNTS WILL BE HIGHER ACROSS
FAR SOUTHERN PENNSYLVANIA...POSSIBLY EXCEEDING A FOOT OVER THE
AREA FROM BEDFORD TO CHAMBERSBURG EAST TO COVER MUCH OF THE LOWER
SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY. AMOUNTS COULD APPROACH TWO FEET NEAR THE
MARYLAND BORDER IN FRANKLIN...ADAMS...LANCASTER AND YORK
COUNTIES.

THE EXACT TRACK OF THE STORM IS STILL UNCERTAIN. A SLIGHT JOG TO
THE NORTH WOULD PUSH HEAVY SNOW FURTHER NORTH INTO THE STATE...


That would be us... square in that 'two feet deep' place they are talking about.
We may need another case of beer......

Amen...Especially if you get an undefined quantity of Snow (Emergency) Days!

Sounds like you've got it under control, my friend - of course, I've have been flabbergasted if you hadn't.

Those snacks sound good, too.

Snow day?

We were supposed to get 2-4" here in KC but it passed us by with only a few flakes. We're being warned we won't get off so easy when the next line of storms arrive over the weekend.

Shoot. I was planning on going to the airport gunshow Saturday. Not if the snow is heavy. :-(

Heh Heh Heh Looks like we get to miss this one up here in RI. Those Canadians are being nice to us and sent an Alberta Clipper our way to kepp that white stuff to the south. I ope it ALL lands on DC and kills every politician down there. Well except for the few good ones mentioned in the above post. Good luck to you all. Bailey's/Kaluha/ and a little "wodka" is the way to watch if fall!
