We are in the midst of a blizzard-like snowstorm here in Maryland, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in a decade or maybe even longer. In 2006 we had 14+ inches, and here where I am, in Baltimore County, they are predicting 18-24", so looks like I’m in for the weekend. I love looking at it, especially at Christmas time, but I’m sure glad I don’t have to be out in it.December 19, 2009 at 6:44 pm #859953tdogsParticipant
All you guysies back east and wherever else everyone is in the bad weather the next few days – stay safe and warm!December 19, 2009 at 7:01 pm #8601
not just warming.
If you’re getting that much Patti, I’m in for a ton too up here in MA. They have been giving us warnings all day. The traffic trying to get last minute shopping done was insane. I’m hibernating at home now. I am not looking forward to a night and half day or more of snow with shoveling to do on top of that. It’s so cold here too – 20s! Brrrr!December 19, 2009 at 7:08 pm #860253tdogsParticipant
we have just partial cloudy…I feel for you all back east! Get out the crockpot for soup and lay in a supply of movies and good books! Good luck!December 19, 2009 at 7:59 pm #8605
now we’re looking at 20-30", and they’re still not sure that’s all we’ll be getting, so look out SW, cuz’ it’s definitely heading in your direction. Plus, as if that isn’t going to be enough, there are two more storms behind this one, one expected for Christmas day. I don’t remember when it last snowed on Christmas here in Maryland, but looks like we are, indeed, heading for a White Christmas!! Right now, my biggest worry is that the Bears can’t get a flight out of Chicago tonight and into BWI in time to play my beloved Ravens on Sunday. They may have to postpone the game and make it a Monday Night double-header. They’re still up in the air on that one (no pun intended)! LOL!December 19, 2009 at 8:50 pm #8607BonbonParticipant
Thursday night we had eight inches of rain here in S.Florida. That would equate to 56" of snow so we’re getting the freaky weather too. BTW, that’s what I did when it was raining so hard…baked Christmas cookies. Anyway, it’s bright and sunny and warm again today. I’ll bottle some up and send it up north. Stay warm, you guys and enjoy the snow on Christmas.December 19, 2009 at 11:57 pm #8611
I hope you still do. Right now they’re indicating 10" for my area (more than enough) but since I’m relatively on the coast, who knows. I’m actually the next town over from Salem, MA. lol I doubt your team is going to make it to the game tomorrow as it sounds like most of the flights around your area have been cancelled and rescheduling is going to be a nightmare for several days. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time for those traveling for the holiday. It will certainly be a white Christmas and most likely a white New Year around here as at this time of year, things don’t melt very quickly! Stay safe Patti!December 20, 2009 at 1:08 am #8612
coming down heavy. We’re getting 2" per hour. Right now we’re up to 2 feet and counting, and it’s expected to keep snowing through the night into tomorrow a.m. This is the mother of all storms. Thank God, we still have power in my county. OMG, I just realized something; I can only see the top of my car! Definitely the storm of the decades here in Chesapeake Bay country. I live on a side street in the county, and I’ve only seen one snow plow go by all day. Good thing I went food and necessity shopping yesterday morning. I have a feeling I’m going to be penned in here until at least Monday. Just heard they are clearing one air strip at BWI for the Bears flight to Baltimore, but no word yet as to whether or not the game will still be scheduled for Sunday or Monday night. My neighbor has been out 4 times today with his snow-blower. Looks like he finally gave up for the night. With 2" every hour, it’s just wasted gasoline! LOL!December 20, 2009 at 2:10 pm #8622
right now. It’s blowing like crazy. I went out and shoveled from 7:30-8:30. It was light but at least 9" and filling up as soon as I cleared it. The only advantage to keeping up with it is that when you have super deep snow, it’s harder for the snowblower to get the normal size ‘chunks’ that go in to be blown out. The plows haven’t been around too much here either. A few went by while I was shoveling to fill in the end of the driveway again, lol, but that’s about it. I’m hibernating until it stops or I have to go to work (Monday morning) which ever comes first. I really wish Mother Nature would take it away the same way she brought it but that never seems to happen. Also, at this time of year, it doesn’t melt very quickly even when the sun is out strong – it’s too cold!
