So hey, this just in: This Storm Is For Real

Even if the amount of snow they've predicted falls short, the snow that's falling right now is 1. Falling sideways in the high wind, so it's going to stick to power lines and drag them down, because 2. It's pudding snow, heavy and wet. It will do damage not only to the power grid, but to flat roofs.

And I'm pretty sure they're not wrong about the severity of this thing, because the real monster is still south of Hartford but moving North, and is bright bastard red on the weather radar...and it's already really bad out, so when the monster gets here, it's going to be the real deal, I think. The scenes they're showing on the local news of the coastline are frightening - huge surf - and the tide is all the way out. When it comes in, the Cape and the shore are going to get smacked.

These things rarely live up to expectations...but I think this one might. I've been through a whole bunch of these, and this one has the flavor of real truth. It's already bad, and unless they're taking Crayolas to the radar images, it is going to get significantly worse in short order. If you're in New England and you're not home, get there with all dispatch.

Reporting from Boston.

3. At the moment, yes

It's a degree or two away from being rain, but when the big portion arrives, the temperature will drop and the snow will get fluffier...so we'll have two inches of ice/snow beneath however much fluff we get. Brutal shoveling to come...

45. Some of them

had the same reaction pre-Sandy. We didn't see them for a week, either. I don't wish it on them, I've just struggled through Katrina and any number of hurricanes and you cannot take them lightly. Preparedness is great, because everyone seems to prepare a little differently. If everyone is prepared, you would be surprised the useful things that a neighbor can come up with that you didn't think of.

Post-Katrina, I take storms seriously. When you have no power for 5 weeks (in the hell heat and humidity of the Deep South in summer, I might add), and no running water for nearly a month, it changes your viewpoint considerably.

82. Post- most storms can be horrid

Sadly, the East Coast loses power so often during these big ones in winter, it is kind of hard to prepare for that if you are dependent on one type of heat.
And 20 degrees of East coast is a LOT more bone chilling than 20 degrees of West Coast, I guarantee that.

I was amazed at the amount of vitriol heaped upon your post...

And SAY that they understand that because of Climate Change... the predictions are that...

We are going to see more and more intense storms, more and more frequently.

IOW... we need to start paying attention to most storms labeled as DANGEROUS...

And having two or three "Hundred", or "Five Hundred Year" storms in a single decade is a sign...

I could not believe the crap you took for bothering to care, and communicate to DU.

But I'm gonna keep on truckin'.

9. Well, hunker down. If you've got gas cooking, you'll be fine.

We're getting a storm tomorrow with possible snow, but it will be a typical desert storm with dry pavement by noon.

That's why I live here.

We had an 18 inch snowfall 7 years ago. This town has no snow plows, so most folks were snowed in for a week or more. The Federal plows that take care of the high passes on the Interstates finally plowed some of the major streets after a few days. Side streets had to evaporate or melt. I'd quit working then but I understand the city sent garbage trucks around to pick up nurses in town and get them to work. If they were lucky, the driver's cigar wasn't lit.

But yeah, it's nearly sunset and it's going to get nasty in coastal New England very quickly.

GREAT place to be in the storm.

We had to withdraw them from the tour. The final three nights were/are within the really badly battered areas, starting tonight. We were asked what the boys are driving and we were told "well, if they manage to get here, they probably won't be able to get out." Tomorrow night (Saturday) they were supposed to go to the venue in coastal Connecticut. YIKES! Awful what's happening out there. Every time I check the Weather Channel, it looks nastier and nastier.

OY, guys - you folks in the Northeast - PLEASE TAKE CARE!!!! And stay INDOORS!!!!!

16. I really like that you described the snow type.

Some folks do not reallze snow has "types" and the result of snowfall depends so much on what kind of snow it is,
how cold it gets at night after the snowfall, etc.

My favorite snow type is "falls somewhere a state away from my back yard"
So far, I have had plenty of winters of this type.

I have learned differently, and finally didn't think anything of a Michigan morning at -5 below at 7 in the morning while I was doing work at a particular office, but DAMN. 2 FEET of snow?

43. 19 car pileup in Maine mid-afternoon

I think on 295 outside of Portland?

Also read that Gov. Deval ordered evacuations of Marshfield, MA.

I called work at around 11am and was told "business as usual," so shoveled out about 8" of light, fluffy snow and headed out at noon time wondering if I'd be driving home at 10pm in white out.

At 6pm, they came to me and said pack up and go home. The rest of my team was staying longer. We think they sent me home first because I had the furthest to drive. One person is staying in town with family and I think the other lives in town. They decided to close early, at 8pm, I'm guessing because they're hearing stories from Mass. They closed their Boston headquarters at 3 or 4 this afternoon.

Anyway, the drive home turned out to be much easier than the drive in. The wind was steady and I was mostly driving into it, so not buffeted at all. The snow is so light that even with 11-12" down now, it was blowing right off coastal 1. And it slowed way down, from an inch/hour to 1/2"/hour of teeny little flakes, so visibility was surprisingly good.

But I'm pretty far north, so the blizzard proper isn't expected to arrive for another couple hours.

46. I'm sure that in high population

places this will be bad after over 6" is sticking to stuff, and the ground. Out here in high elevation, low population Montana, it's not a blizzard unless you can't see across the road (approximately 100 ft in distance) and/or it lasts for a few days and/or all of the above and it dumps at least two or three feet on the ground. But in the NE, where I grew up, it's a bit different.

It sure looks like a mean one on the doppler and satellite!

I hope your power stays on and it doesn't turn into a complete catastrophuk for hell.

Stay safe, stay warm... hopefully both.

72. Just had doggy out for a very abbreviated walk. The snow/wind has been coming from the NE

all day. Wind started picking up around 4 or 5. About 8"-10" on the ground where I am right now. If it snows overnight (and it looks like it is going to) I expect we will have a solid 12"-18" - possibly 20"+.

Central MA 20 miles east of Worcester - Hopkinton area..

79. Oh, silly silly boy...

There is no such thing as a blizzard! Obviously you are not listening to fox news!

The presence of copious amounts of snow might be misconstrued by wild-eyed liberals to be a product of the melting of the polar ice cap due to global warming, resulting in higher amounts of precipitation.

... silly liberals...
