I doubt it. If there’s enough snow to open, the roads will be blocked by trees.

Summer heat wave here in CA. It was 94 degrees today in San Jose. We could use some of that cool air.

Meanwhile, I’ll be walking through 100 degrees in Las Vegas Monday (work). It’s too early for 100, even there. Usually it’s June.

Unfortunately you are in the bulls eye and have enough elevation (about 2000 feet) to get hit. There’s still time for the storm to change track but it seems unlikely to fizzle.

Watch the lame stream media only report the excessive heat in those cities. Not the unusual snow. But then, to them it’s always just climate change.

Ugh. We had a very mild winter. Was going to put the plants in from the greenhouse this weekend. Everything else is in bloom outside and beginning to fill in. Very weird winter in western PA.

Ok, two days ago I was mowing my lawn in a tee shirt. Two days from now I will be shoveling 8” to 16” of snow. Just great. We haven’t had 8” all year.

Depending on your location (see the map in post 1) and elevation you may want to prepare for losing power.

Johnstown here. Our first snow day of the 2011-2012 school year? (We homeschool so my kids don’t get snow days, but I close my office if Richland School District calls off.)

I opened up the NOAA - National Mosaic Map and I don’t see anything in the Buffalo area:
http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full_loop.php
Now, 150 miles East of Buffalo it looks nasty, though.
The link in Post 1 has Wednesday’s date on it.
These guys couldn’t forcast tomorrow’s weather with any certainty, much less Wednesday’s.

just checked your map posted...we are right in the thick of it...ugh...
and we loose electric power here often when the winds hit...electric company has been informed that husband has heart disease and has a defibrillator that is monitored through our phone lines and I have two cochlear implants, with out my processor I am totally deaf, so they know when we loose power our adult son will be on their case big time. electric company has been very cooperative.

You know, I was going to siphon the gas out of my snow blower the other day and put it away for the year. Glad I didn’t. I guess I’ll let it sit and see if I need it again. It sure didn’t get much excersie this winter. ;))

I’m in Indiana County, Pa. Looks like we’ll be dragging out the propane heater and kerosene lamps again! We always lose power in a storm, and with the leaves on the trees now, there will be a lot of broken branches with resulting lines down.

oh goody :-/

If they’re accurate, we’re about 10 mi. East of the end of the snow zone. We started getting spring flowers in February. We’ve had daffodils, narcissus, hyacinths, forsythia for over a month. The fruit trees are in full bloom weeks early. It’s the spring that seemed to never end, but we always knew we’d have to pay. The woodstove is stoked up; not illegal yet.

Thank you for the warnings.

Years ago, a disc jockey in Pittsburgh said, if you don’t like the weather here, wait 5 minutes. It’ll change.

Friday, it was almost 80 here; tomorrow maybe snow.
