as they were saying last night. calling for 3-5 inches and 1/10 inch of ice. coffee is to good to go out and check on ice, but we couldn't have gotten 1-2 inches of snow at most. wind was bad as most of snow on walk has blown off. another TV blizzard/disaster averted........

It's lots easier to blow the snow off if the ice comes first. Just sayin'.

It rained for two days with temps in the 50's, then went down to 9 last night. It has been snowing and blowing since 8PM yesterday.

The weather seems so random that all I can do is roll with it.....no planning allowed.

we had some bad ice, this past week. Everything was slippery, till the sun was up for a while. One day it snows and the next day it is 60. We had almost two feet of snow on monday, and last night, it was 59 degrees out. Typical NJ winter weather.

We got about 4" of snow with some ice rain falling before it turned to pure snow.

Just finished blowing out the driveway and walkways. Just about a foot of snow, plus a sheen of ice underneath it.

same here
I dug our snow blower put the tire chains on the tractor ( was going to do any way ) bought about 50 gallons of gas and diesel fuel for generators and heaters /tractor
added some more food and dog food to the pantry
what did we get maybe 3" of snow ... they were calling for up to eleven inches or more snow + the ice .. oh well glad it missed us ..
lot of power outages last night but missed us again that was fine
as long as they keep missing the forecast in our favor

oh no incoming missile alarms
