Uggh,

I have tickets for the Penguins / Devils game on Sunday in Pittsburgh. I'm leaving tomorrow for a little road trip. Should be interesting with this storm. I was going to take 78 but I think I'll take the PA Tpk because the storm is supposed to be worse further north. My luck this had to happen this weekend.

That isn't surprising. They have a foot up in Ontario right now, that is basically a different storm then the one we will get down here. Our eyes should be on the low walking up the coast, that is what will be giving us the crazy totals. Phasing seems a bit early, but not significant, the storm is definitely seeming to follow what the Euro predicted. Phasing should start this afternoon big time and then the tempetures will crash and the snow will come by the bucketful.

I noticed some fans do not tip the beer vendors at The Rock when they use their food and bev cards.

I always thought it was right to tip them a dollar when buying a beer, whether you buy with cash/credit or a F&B card.

What do you guys do?

Like the vast majority of people, I dont tip them at all; they're arena beer vendors.

They make a set hourly wage like everyone else selling stuff in the arena does. It's not equivalent to tipping a bartender at a restaurant or pub where they're counting on tip money as a substantial piece of their compensation.

So the National Weather Service is dragging down all their snow estimates because they believe the norther storm is moving slower than they expected and wont merge early enough to produce higher levels.

For instance, a 10-14 inch area of NJ posted last night is now 6-8 inch. Hopefully they're wrong, God knows that happens a LOT.

Solid idea. I'd start your plan this afternoon or tonight though.

Dont underestimate the way the media hypes people into a panic.

It's not even bad here yet... Some rain, that's all.

Good think, I'm hoping my commute home won't be terrible because most people stayed home.

Steve D has a good video that explains how this storm works. Everything seems to still show this storm on track to do the 6-12 inches, though I think he is low-balling what Long Island will see.

I like the guy

Also, NYC it's a mix of snow/hail/rain. Doesn't feel good when they are blowing in my face. In for the day now.

I drove in hours before it started (because of the whole "working the game" thing), but I think my drive home was probably about an hour to an hour and a half after it was called. That was ****ing terrible. Probably the most miserable snow related storm I've ever had to drive through. Only other storm that may have been worse (which was rain) was also a time leaving RBA.... Maybe that place is the problem

That game against Chicago in July. I remember Bill rushing us out of the building about 30 minutes after the game and had no idea why and as soon I turned on FER Boulevard the sky just opened

I used to work as a beer vender for Aramark at PNC Bank Arts Center. I ALWAYS tip them. We put up with so much **** as a beer vender, You should tip a buck for every drink you buy, although a buck for two drinks is good too.
