*Official* East Coast Blizzard 2013 thread

Run for your lives!!!

Katie Horner can only dream she was living in New York or Boston right now!



http://www.wunderground.com/US/NY/075.html



... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 1 PM EST Saturday...

* locations... New York City... southern Westchester County... and
coastal portions of northeast New Jersey.

* Hazard types... heavy snow and strong winds.

* Accumulations... snow accumulation of 10 to 14 inches... with
localized higher amounts within developing snow bands.

* Winds... north 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

* Temperatures... falling into the 20s by this evening.

* Visibilities... one quarter mile or less at times.

* Timing... the strongest winds and heaviest snow will occur this evening
into Saturday morning.

* Impacts... heavy snow and winds will make for dangerous driving
conditions with visibilities near zero in white-out
conditions. In addition... some tree limbs will be downed...
causing scattered power outages.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel... have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded... stay with your vehicle.

I do think they were predicting 40" for Boston at one point. Not exactly a few flurries.
That's why you're awesome!!! Rep!!!

Was reading on twitter that it's snowing 5 inches an hour in some parts of Connecticut. The radar looks like a severe storm.

That would be a neat trick, considering Fargo has barely 100,000 people in it. It's only slightly bigger than, well, Lee's Summit.

And you must have noticed that a big city has a harder time dealing with snow, because the population density means it's harder to move the stuff out of the way. You must have noticed that, living near KC, and Boston has half again Kansas City's population stuffed into less than 1/3 the size. And it's not alone, the Massachusetts-Connecticut-Rhode Island cluster has *eleven* cities with more than 100,000 people in an area 1/4 the size of Missouri. That's not even counting the three northernmost states, New Jersey, and - oh yeah - New York.

On top of all of that, this isn't just a snowstorm, it's an actual blizzard - winds of over 50 miles per hour and thundersnow have already been reported. Just reading the snowfall amounts might not get you excited, but New England is not laid out like the midwest that most of you know best. Big storms can mess the place up, but good.

This is turning out to be a bad, bad storm.

Thats like 1/3 an inch an hour of rain, in the midwest. I have received over 7 inches in a 12 hour period in the spring. Dont buy into the hype.

Yeah but it's a different ballgame when it snows. You'll see people get blasted with 8-12 inches of rain in a day and severe flooding. But you still don't see too many 80 inch snowfalls in the midwest. Or anywhere really that's not a mountain.

I'm sure we'll all be hearing numbers we can text donations to. I get it, I went through the storm of '78 in Virginia Beach, I just don't recall the concern... It was awesome!

It's good for you. Builds character.

And any minute now some douchebag in Florida is going to chime in about how it's 75 degrees and he just got back from the beach.

I try to look at shoveling the driveway as a bonus workout. Just like this Chiefs season was a bonus comedy show I wasn't planning on.

so I went over to a buddies house to drink some beer. About 2 miles away.

There is a driving ban right now I guess. So I borrowed his skii gear and walked home.

I only had 3 beers in 5 hours. So I was intending to drive home, but didnt even hear about this driving ban. That was a crazy walk home. I just walked in the middle of the street, 20 feet visibility in front of you. I'm glad he had that ski gear or I woulda been ****ed.

I remember that. It was over Washington's birthday, right? We got a couple of feet in Maryland. We stacked it up against the neighbor kid's shed and made a sled ramp.
