    Well Maybe. It all depends what path the storm takes. Is everyone in the Northeast ready?

    Yeah I guess we sort of have to be ready. WERE STUCK WITH IT!! Doesn't really matter to me anymore, I'll be in Florida Tuesday. Was hoping to come back and get right to work, but I don't think that's going to happen. Oh well. :mad:

    we're in the harrisburg pa area...i've always found Accuweather to be pretty good forecasters...them seem to be holding their cards and not saying much....lets make some educated guesses since allot of us are pretty good weather predictors...I say for interior PA.......total around 10 inches....how bout some more guesstimates for where you live....

    They are saying 6-12 inches here. Just a couple of days ago it was only going to be a wintery mix. Now maybe a foot of snow. They don't have a clue. $5 million satellites and supercomputers and they were just as accurate 20 years ago.

    BARKLEY...you took the words out of my mouth...20 years later and all the new technology...and they are no better....well what should we expect from govt workers....imagine being a govt worker (cant get fired no matter what) and on top of that a GOVT employed weather person...what a cake job that would be

    Yesterday morning the forecast for my area called for up to 10" by this morning, by 6 pm it was down to 1-3". Today, nothing not a flake.

    They're saying at least 6" for here in NW New Jersey...then again, I'll believe it when I see it. Wish I had a job like those guys. Wrong 1/2 of the time and still get paid. What a racket!

    wow, must be tracking straight east as we are not supposed to get anything...generally we get nicked by these storms enough to plow...

    so far since new years haven't plowed more than 2"at a time...i know in the states, and eastern canada you've been hammered.

    from memory i think i've only plowed more than 3" only twice...and one was mid november!

    have only had to go out again and check drive windrows the next day a couple times this yr. but we have plowed a bit, eight? times i think, but just a couple inches a time.

    which is fine by me.
