OT: Severe Weather Discussion

Hi all,

I'm a big weather buff. We are going to get pounded by snow. Some models as of early this morning show that the North Shore of LI could get 20 inches of snow.

Hope everyone is prepared. Do the little things today

/For the record, it could be more than 20 inches in some isolated areas. To take it a step further, I'm almost positive some local areas will see higher than 20 inches. This is one of the most powerful winter storms we've had in a decade. It will be a fast mover through Saturday and clear up Saturday night. The dig out starts Sunday! Enjoy.

If the weather goes the way they feel it will, I don't think that game gets played Saturday.

We got over 2 feet in NJ at least 3 times in the past 4 years, so this is nothing new.

I just don't want to lose power. I'm afraid after sandy there are some trees leaning on poles, if too much snow builds up on them I will be without power.

Versus Chicago, the concessions were giving away free coffee and hot choclate. The Kept anouncing that it was open seating and you could sit where ever you wanted. I remember that game fondly we won 6-2 or something around that.

My dad was driving a dodge ramcharger with a lift kit and we parked on top of a snow bank because we thought it would be fun.

GOOD TIMES...Good times.

EDIT; And they gave us Free tickets to another game.

CT is supposed to get nailed (12" to 24") not as bad as Boston who at last glance were expecting 28" or so.

Yeah, I'm doing cartwheels over here in Beantown. The news is just getting worse and worse over here. I'm praying that we only get like 15 inches at this point and that's starting to look iffy.

The Isles better win tonight or I'm going to be pissed.

This sucks I'm going down to Washington this weekend to catch a random Capitals/Panthers game and check out the Verizon center.. Was leaving early Saturday might just head out a day early now..

They'll play the game.. They also played a couple years ago against the habs around Christmas while it was snowing out, over a foot, there was like 5,000 people there and about 4,300 of them were Canadiens fans.

Looks like we'll get about a foot here. Going to spend Saturday afternoon watching Hockey Day in Canada here in the D Rex dungeon.

Exactly what I will be doing. Perfect day to be stuck inside watching hockey all day. But God help the walls of my apartment if my power goes out.
