Anyone else getting slaughtered by the snow storm?

There's an extreme winter storm warning in effect until tomorrow night at 10:00 for this entire section of Virginia. So far we've got about a foot of snow and there's supposed to be 28-30 inches when it's all said and done.

 

On top of that it's supposed to snow Tuesday and Wednesday as well as next Saturday for good measure. Local news stations are already calling this the worst winter storm in Virginia history and it's only halfway over for crying out loud. We have a brand new Trane oil furnace and a tech had to come out Tuesday to install some gadget on the oil line because the damn thing kept freezing up.

 

I'm just waiting for the power to go out to cap this mess off. So is anyone else out there being raped by old man winter?

We've had none so far in South Florida. Hope you are all well stocked and take care of yourselves. A storm like this is pretty bad. Be careful!!

They've been talking about it on the news for the past two days, but here it is 10 PM at the Northern tip of New Jersey and we haven't seen a drop of snow yet. From what I gathered, those south of us are getting hammered though.

Snow is for Americans, we folks from Southern Ontario (Canada) have had very little of it.....f**k I just jinxed us to 6 weeks of hardcore white stuff....damn!!!

 

Other than a week in early January my shovels have been collecting dust. My BBQ, tucked away in the backyard is getting more action than it has in a few winters.

It started snowing here at about 10 am this morning. I spent 3 hours cutting and chopping firewood just in case we lost power. I just came in from walking my dogs, one cocker spaniel and one golden, and they weren't too happy. Actually, I only walked one... I had to carry the other. :tumbsup: We are at 16 inches now and it is snowing harder now then at any point today. They actually say we will get the worst of it between midnight and 8 am. They say we could get 4 inches per our after midnight.

 

My dish went out in the middle of the Capital's hockey game so I had to go out and clear the snow off of it... Luck for me (and my wife) that solved the problem. I've already knocked the snow off of it twice. With my luck I will have no reception on Sunday for the Super Bowl. :cartman:

 

Worst part is I didn't stock up on food before the storm. On the back roads where my cabin is it may not get plowed until Monday or Tuesday... by then they are calling for another storm.

We've been getting snow steadily since late this morning, but it really started coming down around 2-3 this afternoon. I left work around 3:30, went and got my taxes done, stopped at the store (and belatedly realized I didn't get everything I'd need for a long weekend indoors, let alone Super Bowl weekend), and by the time I got out of the store, it was slick.

 

Now, the roads are just covered. I'd say we're upwards of 3 inches. (Which, after reading Dave's story, I feel stupid for even complaining about.)

 

The worst part for me? It didn't hit LAST night so we could've had a snow day today. Mother Nature's a whore! :thppt:

I'm not sure why I woke up... it is nearly 4 am here. Just stuck a yardstick in the snow.....23 inches and it is snowing so hard you can barely see. It is still suppose to snow for about for about 16 more hours according to local weather. It is possible that we get 3 feet of snow if it keeps up at this pace. It seems like it snows only on the weekends.

Shortly before 9 AM and.... we still got nuthin'! I woke up this AM expecting to see a winter wonderland, looked out the window, and saw.... exactly the same as last night. I'm like "So where is it?"

 

Now the news sez my area (Northern NJ) may get a slight dusting, if that. Meanwhile, the Southern portion of the state (and beyond) is getting freakin HAMMERED. Figure that out. :blink:

 

I'm actually kinda bummed cuz I was sorta looking forward to this storm. For once it was happening on a weekend so I did'nt have to go to work in it.

Almost 11:00 am now.

 

My yardstick now tells me we have 28 inches of snow on the ground. No sign of it stopping, coming down just as hard as it ever has. Both of my dogs refuse to go outside at this point. Living where I do (over a mile off any paved road) I see no way I'll be going anywhere until at least midweek.

 

I'm not really sure how I still have t.v. as my dish has all but disappeared. If that goes out I guess I'll be listening to some CD I haven't spun in a long time.

We are getting hammered here in South Jersey, started around 7 last night, we have about 14-15 inches (10:30am Sat.) they say it will snow until about 9 or 10 tonight, so we should get about two foot. I'm off work til Tuesday, got lots of food and booze, so I should be good until Tuesday

I just saw the other day that they're flying and trucking in snow to Canada for the Winter Olympic Games. HAHA! Poor bastards. But seriously, what's up with that? How does it snow in the US but not Canada?

 

Oh, and the other hilarious thing; they were interviewing some Canadian guy and he's all rugged up in big warm clothes and he's talking about how warm it is and he actually enjoys the heat compared to the cold they normally have. The temperature was 9'C (48'F). :lol:

My area dodged the snow bullet this past weekend, but now they're telling us to expect about a foot of it up this-away starting tomorrow night into Wednesday. That's no big deal to me cuz Wednesday is my day off anyway.

 

...then again, this means they will cancel school, and I'll be trapped in the house with the entire family waiting for it to stop... :yikes:

 

Someone kill me now!!!!

    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
    • Thats not even close to what I said.
