Central PA Fall 2018

There are going to be a lot of people sleeping in cars around Harrisburg tonight. 
Holy F what a disaster. I can’t remember traffic this bad. 

It’s the most cars I’ve ever seen on the side of the road. It reminded me of Atlanta a few years ago and they got some snow.

I agree. Every major road is either sto and go or total stand still.

7" before switchover

This is what happens when NOBODY takes the weatherman seriously. The only thing that will get companies to begin closing up and/or making their staff work from home (assuming they can) when this **** happens is a ****load of people dying as a result of their obligation to show up. 

 

Unless this is a series of Ambulances stranded on the road, nobody really needed to be out in this.

I might be sleeping in my car down here. I have no where to go. Gridlock everywhere. It's chaos.

My wife is still at work. Wish they'd have let her go early. I am glad I took the week off as we we're getting a new roof. Better to be home than piloting a big rig, although my time will come eventually.

I’m sure the sleet & freezing drizzle for the next 10 hours followed by a 2-3 hr burst of snow just before rush hour tomorrow is going to make it a real picnic tonight.

Bill your employer for any towing and/or removal.

Situation is crazy.  Some buses took 5 hours to deliver kids.  And as most have said, gridlock everywhere.  Why is this one so bad?  A 6” snow with some mix is significant but my no means unusual around here.  Underestimated?  Timing?  Unprepared?

The freezing rain is going to do a number on the roads with major traffic. All the packed down snow will turn to a block of ice. It’s not like they can even be treated, because of the traffic.

Was it lack of preparation or people not taking the weather people seriously? 

 

Show of hands: Who read, this week, on various Facebook pages "It won't lay, the ground is too warm." We have incredible minds like All weather and MAG and Millville and everyone here that provide information to people in as clear and concise a manner as possible and half of the responses are:

 

1) Boooo [angry emoticon]

 

And the other half are 

 

2) The ground is too warm. 

I understand that it seems like I'm trying to die on this hill, but damnit, why is seven inches of snow causing this to happen? It's not like we forgot how to Pennsylvania. It snows every single year. All the time. This is not a product of lack of knowledge/practice. This is a product of people and entities not wanting to listen.

 

And with that, I'll shut up.

First of season is always worst.

Underestimated as they kept harking on time of year, climo, blah, blah, blah.

There's a Mecca joke in there somewhere. I should move to the banter/butthurt thread.

6.5" so far here. Still snowing, but not as hard. The worst part is it's total gridlock on the roads. Every major hill here around Tamaqua is shut down.

Wow 8.5”.

Road issues I put on penndot. People started leaving at 11 am, state closed at noon. Roads already were gone by then.

Forecast was for 2-4” which is manageable usually. Not this morning, clearly.
