    The humidity? It dropped in here. It's a little the worse for wear. :D

    We're slated to get our share of a nor'easter tonight into the morning hours, maybe 6-9" by time it moves on. Well if this storm will be the biggest problem standing between us and clear roads a week from now for the Thanksgiving trips... no complaints. There are already some big smiles on the faces of those who like to ski. :D

    Me either. Hate having to leave the car in a certain place in the drive for the plow guy to do his thing. Gone now for the season those carefree days of parking anywhere. But I am pragmatic enough to have rounded up all that winter gear the last week or so.

    So let's see if the forecast is hype now. Probably no such luck. I think we're in for it.

    All the down state folks are supposed to get buried we're going to get snow for 8 of the next 10 days but nothing like the slap they're going to get

    Update- there’s maybe around half a foot on the ground now and it doubled my commute time. Traffic is really bad.

    Oh, I'd pay to see the bloke in the Mustang try to get out and drive home.

    I live and work In New Jersey. People left work in Englewood Cliffs four hours ago and still haven’t gotten home. Their commutes are usually an hour. It’s like no one ever saw snow here before. Maybe they didn’t think it would be that bad and maybe there aren’t enough trucks on the road. 80 west, the interstate from GW BRidge to PA is shut down completely. My friend is going east on it and it took him two hours to go four exits. And the exits are fairly close together.

    The roads are a mess, what ever was on the road before the snow hit froze.

    There seems to have been a severe lack of preparation here. This storm was not a big one by any means, but the roads seemed completely untreated. There’s already been 7 storm related deaths due to traffic incidents.

    We have just about 5 inches in CT right now. They underestimated the storm.

    My coworker gave up. He’s at a hotel by route 95. He has no change of clothes or anything. Good day for him.

    I do think they may have underestimated this a bit, even though here they bumped the expected totals awhile back from max 9 to max 14 inches.

    Plows are out but they won't be able to keep up with these 1-3" per hour blitzes that we're getting intermittently. It's pretty early for a big snow. People up in the higher hills here are usually just starting to fish out their studded tires and get them on by now, so they may have got caught out by this thing.

    Last week was 104. This week is 38. Maybe I should stick to one hemisphere...

    Holy smokes! :eek::eek::eek:

    We were in the mid 80's last week and are now in the mid 70's to low 80's this week. So I feel your pain with the drastic change in temperature! :D

    However we have been hitting the low 50's at night though.

    We're looking to have a record low high for Thursday, looks like it might just kiss the 20F mark...

    So the cooked turkey might refreeze on Thanksgiving. They are predicting the coldest Thanksgiving on record.

    We're headed in the other direction and will be -4º or lower Thursday night. Some weird one-day arctic blast poking down from our frenemy Canada. :D

    All you ever do is complain about the weather. Now because of you it's wet all over. You should be ashamed of yourself.
