  1. Good Luck! Wish you well! I have appreciated your input (and missed it). Can't wait to see what you say tonight!
  2. To shovel or not to shovel? Slop on top of snow is better than slop on shoveled surface. Will the rain wash away the snow? I guess the first challenge is to get home from work and up the hill to my neighborhood. I went out to Costco and Giant on 22 at lunch and had traction issues in my minivan as it is a mess out there.
  3. It's the MOST WONDERFUL time of the year........
  4. I enjoy this forum because for the most part there is a level of civility, unlike the MA/NY/PHILI forums. Some long time posters know each other well enough that they can laughingly take little pokes at each other and can take the ribbing. Some of us come here because we are snow lovers. We always want to be in the jackpot, always want to believe things will come together for our area, love to break record highs/lows/amounts. We look at snow and the possibility of snow with the enthusiasm of a child hoping for a day off of school. Some of us are proudly weenies. Today, maybe because we are facing the reality of the end of our snow season, the civility is missing. Can't we all play nicely?
  5. Don't look over at the Mid Atlantic. They are jumping off the cliff over the most recent models.
  6. Thank you! I figured that they were better prepared to handle it than here in Harrisburg. Our state offices closed last Wednesday for the storm and all we got was rain. LOL!! Four inches around here and everything shuts down. Our arrival time is 11am but I am planning on heading in 7am or so. We are trying to get the scans moved to before the surgery in the morning anyway. I will enjoy sitting in the hospital watching the snow come down!
  7. I am a Central PA weather nutt looking for some advice from Bostonians here. We are driving up to Boston this afternoon for my daughter to have surgery at MGH on Tuesday and scans and infusions on Wednesday. Guess I am finally going to get to see my "big one" this winter, lol. I figure if I can get to MGH Tuesday morning it can dump all day and even if we get stuck there overnight we will be able to get everything done. My first question to the group is how well does the DOT keep the roads open during a storm? Do the T's usually run through storms? I prefer to drive in since my daughter will be recovering from anesthesia on the way home Tuesday but the Orient Heights station is not that far from the Hilton Garden Inn and we could do that in a pinch. Suggestions? Thank you my fellow weather warriors for your help!
  8. I guess I am finally going to get my big storm, but it will be in Boston. Our drive up to Boston tomorrow afternoon will not be a problem. Getting to Mass General Tuesday from our hotel may be harder. I was hoping that the worst of the storm would be after morning commute. I don't care what happens once we get to the hospital as being snowed in there would be okay. The T station is a couple of blocks from the hotel so if the roads are bad (and the T is still running) we can get to the hospital. As long as we go with the flow, stay safe and get all of the medical stuff in, it will be a fun adventure!
  9. I love a good snow storm better than most. But I was hoping this would be "our" storm and the Sunday/Monday storm would fizzle. I have to drive to Boston on Monday for my daughter's surgery/infusion on Tuesday. Last time I had to drive up was Jan 28th and had to deal with crappy weather/ice the whole way home on the 29th. The 6.5 hour trip took almost 9 hours because of accidents.
  10. Graupel in Lower Paxton Township on my Costco run to get eggs (I know, I know)!
