12/17/2020
We're expecting the first snow of the season, 10 to 17".
Wednesday, 12/16
It started snowing at 1230. At 2130, thereís about 6.5Ē of snow in the driveway. Itís 69 in the library and the sunroom heat does not seem to be running.
Thursday, 12/17
At 0631, itís 27o. The south sunroom door step is 6Ē as is the Laundry room step. The drift in front of the garage door is 12Ē. At 0720, with Buddy not having any success in the snow drifts, I started the snow blower and cut a path from the garage, across the front walk, and down to the sidewalk. I went a few yards up the street on the sidewalk before Lyd called me in. I sent a note to ExpressLawn telling them itís OK if we donít get plowed out today, but they arrived at 1050, and 12 minutes later; finished and gone.
It looks like we got a foot!

A storm is moving on shore today in the Pacific Northwest and northern California. It will spend the next two days crossing the U.S., not as a huge weather maker, but when it exits the East Coast, will strengthen quickly and become a nor'easter.
It is still too early to say exactly who will get most of the snow, but as of now it looks to be interior Pennsylvania and New York and Connecticut. What happens to New York City, it's too early to say but there is a very good chance for significant snow. There will likely be some 1-2 feet snow totals out of this one ... just not sure where yet. Plenty of time to work on the details, but a significant storm is likely coming.
