Big storm for the East Coast, Tues Jan 27th!

Here's the big one we've been waiting for! I'm in the "Crippling snow" area! It's been nice knowing you all!





Quote:
This early week blizzard means business -- Here's the IMPACT MAP without snowfall totals -- A potent clipper system will dive south into the midwestern states on Sunday/Monday before transferring energy offshore and blowing up into a major storm on Monday/Tuesday. There is still some discrepancy over the exact track, so that will still have to be watched over the next few days. Very cold air is in place, along with what looks to be ample moisture streaming in from offshore and a rapidly strengthening low pressure system. In other words, this is the perfect recipe for a classic coastal blizzard. FOR NOW, it looks like New York City to Portland, Maine are going to be hit hardest, but models have been hinting at an even GREATER area of impact, extending back further west than THIS MAP shows. This is not set in stone. We may move things further west or east at this time tomorrow... Either way, keep it here -- There's a blizzard coming.

Better get my TB Storm 2410 fixed and running tomorrow. Also need to make sure my Toro 521 is ready to make runs. Going to do some last minute checkups on my machines

I was in the crippling snow area too, but now the models are trending to the west and I may be out of luck. I can't buy a good snow storm this Winter and we had like three meters of snow over the Winter last year

After today's let down I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this next one too. The way my schedule works I'm off Monday and Tuesday this week and don't go in on Wednesday until 3 pm. Plenty of time to clear whatever comes our way, would be my "perfect storm" to enjoy my blower for the first time this year!

Yeah keeping my fingers crossed for the bigger snow... Today was 5 inches of wet heavy stuff where I am . I am lucky enough to work at a facility that when it snows hard if they do cancel my shift I still get payed without using vacation time. So if it does happen and I end up home, I'll blow some snow and cook some food I really do want to make some serious snow fly, after it's initial test today performing well.

We went out tonight so I'll be dealing with Saturday's 4-5 inches Sunday morning. It should toss nicely.

The Tuesday performance of Old Man Winter is looking like a 30 hour event bringing 14-23 inches depending on how it plays out. I'm also in the crippling band, is that a new term? My my read is that it's a lot of hype. No doubt we'll be getting significant snow but with temperatures firmly down in the teens it will be nice snow, not sleet, freezing rain, rain or any other nonsense.

You guys below us get all the good storms. The nor'easter that blew through here yesterday took every flake of snow. It was plus 8c last night and hammered rain.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)
