FReepers, those affected by the storm now making its way across the Midwest and through New England and the east coast by Wednesday, share your tales, share your pics!
I have 16 inches of global warming already in my yard!
... just to get those out of the way...
I’m just praying that it misses Long Island. I just fell down 1/2 a flight of stairs after taking out my garbage because I had snow/ice left on my boots and I wasn’t holding onto the guardrail!
We have about 6 feet of snow on each corner already, blocking your view. The parking lots are a train wreck.
Thank goodness for all this global warming!!
St Louis metro weather reporters predicting Thunder Snow. What on earth is that??? Guess, I’m going to find out soon.
Thunder snow is essentially lightning and thunder occurring with a snowstorm and is eerie to experience. The snow kind of muffles the thunder sound so it does not as much rumble and roar. Instead, it kind of thumps.
Thundersnow, while rare, is just that—snow so heavy it can actually generate lightning strikes. Usually takes in excess of 3-4 inches per hour snowfall and relatively warmer (near freezing) temperatures.
They’ve talked about snow coming down here.
I’d rather have your snow than the inch of ice we’re supposed to get.The last ice event we had was December 23-24, 2004; no power for 10 days. Christmas was spent with 30 people (10 kids under 12, six dogs and five cats) at my MIL’s house as nobody had power except her.
The crazed sex poodle is away, doubtless humping someone else’s leg somewhere.
I thought the term used late last week on a Matt Lauer interview related to global warming was amusing. Climate guy called it “global swings”. Not sure if that will catch on or not.
I've only seen it a couple of times. It's a snow storm with some thunder and lightning. Really strange.
Yesterday the prediction in Dayton, OH was for an inch of ice. Apparently the ice line has moved north and we're supposed to only get about a quarter of an inch.
Thunder and lightening which happens during a snow storm. Really super cool.
I need my utility trailer to move my table saw and planer from the storage locker to my new shop.
Currently, my utility trailer is in snow up to its bed in my front yard.
When the doggy takes a jaunt
to visit the tree or hydrant,
what on earth does the pooch do?
Pee on your shoe?
You forgot....’the science is settled’ and there’s ‘no controlling authority’....
I will be selling my snow credits to Algore to help pay my get-away vacation cruise to the Caribbean. This scheme makes as much sense as Algore’s carbon credits. Besides, as a carbon-based life form, I’m entitled to make money off of other carbon-based life forms.
Lower Hudson Valley, Carmel to be exact. We have about 14 without drifts expect 6-10 more by Wednesday.
Don't hold your breath waiting for Algore to answer..
We are in Belvidere N.J. on the Delaware river 10 mi. south of the gap right where the river makes a big bend. We are purple & hope it stays that way.
Good luck all FReepers.
We had that last week, when the predicted 6-8 inches magically turned into 16-18 inches.
And after this beast gets through with half the country, more storms will form in its wake. Later in the week and next weekend might see snow in Houston. That later snow line looks to go as far west as the Salton Sea in Southern California. New Orleans may get some snow on the backside after the Arctic air is pulled down into Texas.
I think I remember that storm. Portland?
I’m in the Freeport area..
My two sleds are fueled up,bring it on.
Thank God I listened when someone told me I should spend the extra $150 for an Ariens snowblower.
I had to cancel ANOTHER service job because of this @!$%^&** global warming.
I simply refuse to drive on I-84 in New York in the snow.
People are crazy enough on sunny days in May on that wretched highway. Snow just makes ‘em crazier.
Then, they close the road.
I dealt with this #@%^& three weeks ago.
I’m not doing it again.
Spring cannot - I repeat - CANNOT come quickly enough.
Thunder snow is pretty cool. We had some here in SE Pennsylvania last week. I didn't know it was in the forecast, and when I saw the first flash of lightning, initially I thought it was a fire or transformer blowing. The rumbles and lightning during a heavy snow are muted but dramatic nonetheless.
1/4” of ice on the ground north west of St Louis. Where the H3LL is Al Gore, we need his hot air. This is sure screwing up my working, 1st time in a while.
Prayers & Blessings to all FReepers, this looks like it could get bad.
Oh boy. Sounds creepy.
Thor's Hammer slamming down. Someone must have gotten the Nordic Pagan Gods very upset. Suggest we should start sacrificing AGW virgins, but I do not think there are any left.
Here is a real ancient silver pendant combining the Hammer of Thor in the shape of the cross of Christ. Rather interesting.
And another ancient silver pendant of Thor's Hammer.
BTW - Thursday is named after Thor. Actually means Thunderday. Thunder is another name for Thor. So Thunder Snow is Thor's Snow. Perhaps the ancients were not quite a crazy as they look ?
Very interesting! Cool pix too. No Thors snow yet. Will probably happen tonight.
Gee, we’ve already got about 14 inches left over snow on the ground and nobody’s even worried about it. It’s been snowing all day, off and on, with more forecast for tonight & tomorrow. As my daughter, who was visiting last week from VA, said, WI (Wisconsin) doesn’t stand for wimps. She was calling and texting home every 10 minutes to find out that her kids had snow days. Nobody in WI (not for wimps) had a snow day. We just carry on.
I’m sure that the same could be said for Minnesota, North Dakota, etc.
In the good ol’ days, you could complain to a rain god or snow god.
God is in control.
Groundhog Day is the Day after tomorrow.
The Onion came up with "Snowlocaust" -- which is evil, but also hilarious (if you don't think about it too much).
I’m in KC and am not looking forward to tomorrow. My fear is the electricity going out. Not fun.
What kind of measurement is that - millimeter? Centimeters? Or should I expect 180 to 200 inches?
