Looks like massive storm hitting NE on Monday night through Tuesday. Hard to say whether it will affect ECU's ability to get to CT for Wednesday game.
My son's high school is already calling an early dismissal tomorrow. That's good. That way he'll be well rested for clearing the driveway Tuesday.
This was a couple years ago. It's my husband clearing the sidewalk after the February 2013 blizzard.I love snow, so I'm jealous of you guys. Of course, when it snows here, no one has to go to work or school until most of it melts, so it's always a mini vacation.
That's a lot of snow!This was a couple years ago. It's my husband clearing the sidewalk after the February 2013 blizzard.

de Blasio and a real crisis in Manhattan. I think snow almost got the last truly good mayor in trouble. This guy ... should be fun. Seriously , everyone be safe if this storm comes in as reported. A day or 2 of life disrupted beats the heck out of the rest of the scenarios.
I miss the snow and ice storms in CT SOOOOO much! Today it was 77 here in Phoenix
Not!!! Life is hard, though. We don't have a pool heater (note to self) so we can tan in January, but we can't get in the water to cool off.My brother lives in Tucson; I would miss the change of seasons.
I was thinking the same thing. Now you get to prepare ahead of time. In '78, no one knew it was going to start as early as it did, so they didn't cancel school and everyone left school and work all at once, creating a nightmare on the roads. Officials are often criticized for panicking in advance of storms now, but at least you're less likely to have the huge problem we had in '78. And in Rhode Island, where I was living at the time, we had to wait for the national guard to use heavy equipment airlifted in on military transport planes. It was unforgettable.I remember 78 Memo was worse. the difference is we have better prediction and removal today! I measured 41 inches at my house in the center of Wallingford. in 78 there was very little warning of the magnitude of that storm!
We have a hot tub. Which we only use when the sun is down (for obvious reasons during most of the year) so it can be cool getting in but is sure great afterward.Not!!! Life is hard, though. We don't have a pool heater (note to self) so we can tan in January, but we can't get in the water to cool off.
I DO miss the leaf raking, though.
If the storm is as bad as the weather people are saying it won't matter if ECU gets there or not, the game will be postponed.
