The corridor from Salisbury, Md. to Philadelphia to New York City to Boston to Portland will be faced with roughly 18 hours of heavy, wind-whipped snow.
A nightmare is in store for holiday travelers. "People may have problems getting home from holiday ventures,"
Travel will become nearly impossible from Philadelphia northward as the all-out blizzard ensues late Sunday into early Monday morning. Those planning to travel on Interstate 95 during this time run the risk of becoming stranded for a time.

Our newscaster said a Giant Lizard was descending upon the East Coast. Les Nesman isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Obviously in need of some global warming ‘round these parts.
It just started snowing at 8:00 AM here in southern Massachusetts.

A humongous gizzard is supposed to entrail us up here in MA, with the mastication of the entire north east.
How many inches do you have so far?
I woke up to a layer of icy fog, snow just starting.
I look forward to reading the responses to this question!
about a 1/4 of inch here. I’m sure everybody will run to the stores and buy up all the milk and bread. when you turn on the TV all the news bimbos tell how bad it is.
So far a big no show here in N.Delaware, it was supposed to be in full flight 2 hours ago.
We have a front moving through Bradenton, FL. as I type. Expected to get no higher than 54 today, with 35 for tonight. Tomorrow high of 49 with a low of 28. Hard on the strawberries.

“”It just started snowing at 8:00 AM here in southern Massachusetts.””
Barely a flake or two 08:44 northern border of Mass near Conn. river. NWS says 6” to 10” by monday a.m. this area.
Up until a generation or two back, when northern areas got snow storms each year it wasn’t a big surprise. It snowed in the north, sometimes a lot, sometimes not so much. The people who lived there expected it and were mentally prepared for it.
When it snowed they just got out the tobaggans and snow shovels and took it easy until the snow stopped and the plow trucks could make their rounds. But only the main streets and roads got plowed. If you had to go someplace in a car you put on the tire chains or waited until the snow melted or got beat down by traffic.
Now when it snows it is portrayed as a major disaster and often does become one. So many people seem to be surprised and ill prepared at each snowstorm, year after year, even though there is much more warning and better forecasting today than in years past.
