The Great Snow Apocalypse of FEB 2010
And it looks like it's damn serious. NYE and I'm already officially sick and damn tired of snow!

Hey relax Bud. This one's only 2" to 4".
I think, for this winter, you might want to delevop a different attitude about snow. Because the almanac is calling for many more days of it.
Someone I know got one for Christmas (farmer) and I saw what they're predicting for this winter. And we all know how accurate "they" are, right?
It's snowing...it's snowing. Sorry Scott

Kite-flying lunatic? First American to think postal? Turkey lover. DST. A smooth as butter envoy to any other country, wooing both the women and the men of said country.
It's good to know that his legacy of an Almanac is still alive AND correct!
Ben is the bomb!
He's like Keith Richards AND Mick Jagger combined. Superman on steroids with a Kryptonite shield. The ultimate Rennaisance Man.

Come on the both of you...the snow is beautiful (for now). Until the cars start making it look ugly.

It's not snowing right now, but MY SWEET LORD is it cold.
I just drove up 15 from Frederick and the wind damn near blew my car off the road completely. It's 12 degrees and feels like THREE.
I hate the winter.

Historic snowfall expected in your region...
...Up here at the meteorology labs at The State University of New York At Oswego, there is quite a buzz. This storm has the potential to produce the most snow *ever* in a 3 day for the Baltimore/Washington region. All of the factors have come together perfectly for a classic nor'easter....Would not be surprised one bit if some of Maryland's Winter Storm Warnings are changed to blizzard warnings later today. Snow accumulations should easily exceed 20 inches in most Maryland locations and DC, with some higher terrain receiving in excess of 30 inches.
Your record snow amounts that are now in jeopardy:
28" Jan 1922
26.8" Feb 2003
24.6" Jan 1996
If you some of you could report some snow totals here as we head toward Saturday, I would greatly appreciate it! I'm sure the event has been hyped up as all hell down there, but for good reason!
Thanks, be careful, and have fun!

I am looking at the satellite now. I don't know if I believe it. It looks like there is 2 stages to this storm. The initial cluster of clouds (which looks like it is starting to break up a bit, but still deliver a lot of snow) and the tail end of the storm hovering over Georgia and part of the Gulf. If that tail end hits us, and it looks like it is moving right toward us, it could be a record setting snowstorm. But as we have seen many times in the past, weather is unpredictable. Anything can happen. I am expecting a lot of snow this weekend I just don't know if I buy the whole record setting thing. We'll see.

I am at work in Hunt Valley right now, and the radar has the storm about a half mile away from me. I am looking out the window now to confirm.

I'm drinking for effect right now down here in Charles County. The snow isn't sticking yet though. We'll see if our temperatures drop. It's nice to be a teacher right about now. I may have a five day weekend!
