I think they're calling for around a foot here. I saw a weather update yesterday on Facebook that said best case would be 6-10 inches, worst case would be around two feet. But today they changed it to around one foot - so who knows.

It's coming down quite nicely here now though, but I'm not even sure how much we're supposed to get today. We're not supposed to get the big snow until this weekend.

I'm just glad we bought groceries this past weekend and have our survival bucket (in case we lose power) - I can avoid the milk-and-bread stampede that I'm sure is happening now at my local grocer. smile

I remember when we had to walk uphill in both directions to school in 2 feet of snow. There were no buses and no snow days. We are a nation of wusses.

I remember having to walk 8 feet through shag carpet to change the channel.

We ended up with a couple inches last night which was enough to close every school in the area. By noon, the roads were clear and dry. Also, since my wife works for a school district, by lunch time she had the driveway and sidewalks shoveled.

new forecast is for 6-12 inches plus freezing rain and ice on top of the snow. Pondering if I should go out now for regular supplies of milk and gas or wait for the "storm" as it will be less crowded.

Winter Storm Jonas coming to a state near you, or not...

I did email the weather channel this morning and suggest if they are going to keeping mentioning the Jonas name they should be playing Weezer's "My name is Jonas" in the background...

I thought you were going to suggest they be more specific, is it Nick, Joe or Frankie Jonas

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
I hope he had to look that up! They don't know what's going to happen - yesterday we're were supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow out of this and today it's back down to less than an inch. I have sufficient food cooked to get me thru Sunday so I plan to veg in my hotel room.....

saw that DC was expecting a ton of snow, so they delayed school openings by 2 hours and cancelled some schools completely...and received 7/10ths of an inch...

Current forecast here is freezing rain/sleet beginning around midnight. Changing to snow tomorrow and early Saturday. 6-8 inches of snow tomorrow, an additional 1-3 on Saturday. This may be a 3-day week for me. Our manager has told us to stay home tomorrow if the freezing rain hits.

I'm on the other side of the country, but we've been dumped on here. We have almost 4 feet at home (we live in the foothills of the Cascades and our elevation is three times what it is in town). We got another 3+ inches last night and snow is forecasted off and on for the next week.

I actually am not minding the snow this year....my son will be fighting wildfires this summer and after the last 2 fire seasons we've had (where firefighters lost their lives) and lack of snow the previous winter, this worried Mom is saying, "Bring it on!!" Proud of my motivated, passionate firefighter, but I still worry about him! I'm thinking that doesn't ever stop as a parent! smile
