    Sure hope so but local weather and weather channel says 12-24 and locally higher amounts. Check Bluefield Va up through Beckley WV and up into Snowshoe Wv and I bet your weather is wrong. Usually if they call for 12 inches here we get 15-20 because the storms get caught up in the spine of the mountains and wring out every bit of moisture

    that's not my weather, that's the national weather service. i live in manchester,ct but you are right for snowshoe, wv you guys could be looking at around 2ft by wednesday night but then saturday its supposed to hit 51 so i would expect all of that to melt. better get out and plow everything as fast and safely as possible. should be a nice bonus for you guys if you can keep up with it, and have the supplies stocked up.

    here see for yourself

    I got gusts over 50 mph already wonder when not if but when I will be losing my power this time. The trees have shed most of their leaves here I got many that are bare and some with a few and the stronger trees oak and beech my beloved hemlocks still seem to be holding a lot of them but the maples and tulips are bare. A few of my shorter trees have some so this is gona be a rough day I have 4 acres 2.5 of them are wooded and then I am surrounded by woods on top of that so I literately have 1000s of trees here and some will not be here tomorrow.

    Hope you arelucky and the power stays on. We have about 2 inches of snow right now and it looks like the power lines are holding it all along with the trees. Hopefully it will warm up a bit and it falls on down or we will be in the dark with ya
