The pending mid-Atlantic storm 

Via Paul Kedrosky, a slick if somewhat daunting graphical forecast for the winter storm rolling up the mid-Atlantic states this weekend. Got your snows on?

Since we know that three inches of snow can parylize DC, it wpould appear that God has decided to put a crimp in Harry Reid's grand plan.

Is it wrong to propose that the existence of an interventional diety is proven by the appearance of a major blizzard on the eve of every major Global Warming press event???

I belong to the Eastern US Weather Forums, a bulletin board frequented by weather enthusiasts and with significant participation by professional meteorologists.

At the moment their server may be too clogged to register or enter as a guest, but they are worth keeping in mind for the future IMHO.

My major caveat is that the site is populated by people who like extreme weather (stormchasers, for example, or folks who want 30" of snow dumped in their yard overnight). I like extreme weather too: I like it to pass harmlessly by me or, better, to stay away, spectacular but not cataclysmic. I am likely to be worried when most members in my area are elated.

(There are also a few malicious people who cheer for disaster from the anonymous safety of their parents' basements, but they are a transient minor irritant. In order to remain a hospitable environment for the meteorologists, the board is moderated.)

Better there than here. Re gs. I hate storm (tornado)chasers. I HATE 'em!

Just went out and knocked some snow off the vehicles and drove the Land Cruiser around the circular drive to mat the snow down. Ten inches on Maryland's Eastern Shore is a big deal....

Just looked out the window...no snow in Palm Beach so far. Of course there's always the chance Al Gore might decide to drop in.

Here in Northern Virginia, it's been snowing pretty much since 8:30 pm Friday night. Looks to be about 24-30 inches already on the ground, (hard to tell, the wind is blowing it around) but it hasn't stopped yet.
And I refuse to shovel the driveway until it quits [Oh, my achin' back!]

here in the suburbs of Nassau County Long Island, only about two inches, but it is coming down hard now at 9:15.

Here in Manahawkin NJ, just 2 miles west of Long Beach Island I can report shoveling at least 12" of snow earlier today that was covering my driveway and sidewalk. I'm certain another 6-8" awaits my teenage son tomorrow.

We got less than projected here. The wife says it's 6 or 7 inches, I say it's 8 or 9. Funny that.

The Truth is Out There
