6:15 PM Saturday 12/25/2010 - As has been projected for days by various computer models, and outlined in our Storm Technical Analyses, the U.S. East Coast this weekend will experience the most high impact winter storm since March 1993. With Blizzard Warnings in effect from the New York City metro area to Southern New England, and Winter Storm Watches or Warnings covering all of the Carolinas, it is fair to say this event has lived up to the moniker our team assigned of "Snow Miser Surpriser." The extraordinary measures that countless thousands of public safety, service and logistics sector employees now have to initiate on a holiday weekend is the first of its kind on Christmas Weekend in the 21st century. In fact, not since December 24, 1966 has such a wide area of the east coast been impacted by a storm on a holiday weekend such as this. We urge all our readers to closely monitor statements, watches and warnings from your local National Weather Service Forecast Offices.

His forecasts are so much more lively and technical than the national forecast houses. He's worth a gander if you live on the east coast.
Computer models? Thank God. That means it’ll probably blow over.
Øbama is laying on the beach in Hawaii taking care of the situation.
No wonder the Global Warming lover O went to Hawaii for vacation.
His radar model is great. Snow is passing through Atlanta right now. From the model I can see how the snowy weather will push up the east coast.
Thanks. It’s fitting.
I love the snow and cold, it makes it real hard on the warm weather-illegals and subterranean terroritsts.
No he's not. He's getting pounded by flooding rains. LOL! Big downpours in the Kailua area.
Should I rearrange my memory cells, dispose of the ones storing the blizzard of 1996 (30” in Philly, etc.) to make room for this new unprecedented historic catastrophe?
Probably not. I woke up this morning to no snow, having expected it to start sometime in the night. The brave Mr. Foot seems to have downgraded his snowcast predictions to 4+ inches for southeast Pennsylvania. Hardly memorable sounding.
My guess? The sweet spot is narrow, and the storm track is a little more east than expected.
We remove 4” of snow with a broom around here! Yesterday I read that Delta Air Lines cancelled 300 out of 800 flights in anticipation of 2” of snow in the Atlanta area.
People have gotten so dainty.
