South Jersey is suppose to get it from 3 PM Tuesday until Wednesday night.

Ugh, we have parent conferences scheduled for Wed, Thursday and Friday night.

I can take driving in the snow during the day, but at night it gives me with willies.

Want one more Global Warming observation?

If you were to drive today from New York City to LA, you would find almost the entire route covered in snow.

Does this mean that Rove has re-activated his weather machine?

Where is Al Gore? Fox should put out an APB and invite him in for an interview with Bill O.

You know Gore would do it just for the *face time*.

That would be a hoot! Maybe have viewer *call in questions*.

I shoveled five feet of snow in front of my car, put there by the snow plow. Worked all day at it (54 years old, female, but fitness trainer so, naturally, the task fell to me, the only one with a strong heart and good back!). This morning...snow plow dumped another wall in front of my car. Whimper.

Just spent three hours on the phone rescheduling after my flight plans were cancelled. Talk about dominos falling. Just trying to cut my losses.

Damn groundhog? Damn Gore!

It’s bad all around for travelers.

Even at home, many don’t have their electricity back from the last storm.

I wonder where Gore is this winter? Probably some tropical island.

But we REALLY need to pass cap and tax so that man-made global warming can be brought under control.

Dang...and they just got those airports open again. I heard that had to move a massive amount of snow to get Reagan Airport open today.

Down here in Stafford County, VA I just finished shoveling about 24 inches of compacted snow, which means we got about 30 inches where I live.

Many people in Aquia Harbor (a large gated community) are still without electricity.

I want AL Bore to come help us dig out from the next round of “Global Warming.”

With all this snow I am rethinking my plans to move back to Michigan when my last child graduates. I may have outgrown snow.

The reports of a large snow storm in the Washington area must just be a hoax. Watching TV this weekend I know that the SonOBama attended TWO democratic fund raisers on Saturaday. I also watched Georgetown play to a full house on Saturday with Pelosi in attendence..If there was a 24-30 inch snow fall over the weekend the scant number of Washington DC area snow plows would have been plowing the streets of the poor citizens so they could get some food and relief rather than clearing the roads for the High Level politicans and Hoya fans.

Maybe they should call this one “Snowgiddo” to complete the Biblical name pair.

Yes, the local news here tonight called it a "triple whammy" for DC.

It's gotten cold (for us) on the Gulf coast again...this is the coldest winter here in my memory.

I was in DC right after that December snow and that was something. I feel for you all now....this has to be a major pain.

Obama’s press conference today was most symbolic:
