Blizzard Looms for Philadelphia, New York City, Boston
AccuWeather ^ | 12-26-10 | Kristina Pydynowski

Posted on 12/26/2010 5:05:40 AM PST by FS11

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.

“”It just started snowing at 8:00 AM here in southern Massachusetts.””

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.

Just heard some a$$hole NYC commissioner on the news saying it was a good thing the schools will be closed tomorrow because normally they devote extra attention to the areas around schools.

Well, duh. Whenever there is a major snowstorm they close the schools (if they are not already scheduled to be closed).

The snow just started falling, and already, around forty thousand, or perhaps two million people have perished. It's a snowy, cold, global warming bloodbath up here. A crow just flew past my window, froze in midair, then hit the barn, shattering both into a million icy shards.

I blame SUVs, and Bush.

NYC is actually pretty good about staying open and getting cleared—at least in Manhattan.

Off to the mall little later. Hopefully this “blizzard” will scare most people from going......

For the most part snow doesn’t get a chance to even stick in Manhattan. There is never a second when there isn’t people walking and vehicles moving.

NW New Jersey checking in, no snow here. I was expecting a couple of inches when I got up. Just poured my first cup of coffee and not a flake in sight!

My daughter left for her house in Tuckerton last night, thinking we were going to have blizzard conditions today. Bummer, she could have stayed longer....

I believe that the city either closes all of its schools or none of them. If they close on Staten Island then they close in Manhattan too. That said, they don't close them very often compared to suburban school systems, but they do close them every few years when a major storm occurs.

As for snow accumulating in Manhattan, it usually doesn't because of all the heat beneath the streets and sidewalks. But it does accumulate sometimes; and if they are correct about the intensity of this storm, it will accumulate today.

NW New Jersey checking in, no snow here.

From the weather map I've seen this AM ... real time ... it appears the storm track will only deliver a glancing blow to the north east coast. The areas effected most will be Long Island, Cape Cod and the Islands, portions of NE Maine and Nova Scotia.

The only thing that bothers me is the inevitable power failure...lots of elderly people in New England who will suffer without heat in their homes for some time...makes me want to smack the kids on the forums at AccuWeather who are positively giddy about this storm...probably the same crowd that cheers when a tornado scores a direct hit on someone’s home...

What’s coming down here is fluffy and dry. We are close to the line where the heavy, wet stuff that will cause power outages is likely to be, but so far, so good.

It won’t be snow that takes out the power; it will be the wond. People who have generators or wood stoves might want to set up an extra pot of hot coffee or soup for neighbors who will be huddling in unheated homes...

Not bad, then, but you don't have much in the way of snow removal equipment, do you? That makes a big difference.
