Hang on... that's a field? :eek:
I thought it was... well... a lake.

Here's it's snowing a bit.
It's what some parts of the UK look like at the moment:

Bike racing even had to be cancelled (on new years day) due to the wet weather:

No snow (so far) on the Fife riviera of North North Queensferry but it has been cold and rainy and just miserable for months.

Was at the horse racing in Musselburgh today with the old boy and it was FREEZING!

But, it was their annual FREE (usually £20) entry day and I backed a few winners so all good, apart from the frostbite;)

Bit of snow over this way:

 
I knew the mid-atlantic was going to pay for the gorgeous weather we had for most of November and December. It looks like the bill is about to come due. 2 inches of snow here causes gridlock and hysteria. Hard to imagine what 2 feet will do. Good luck to anybody else (Jspear, etc) in the path of this behemoth.

Yeah it is payback time...Blizzard forecast for me. 24"+ and 30-40 mph winds. Should be fun....NOT!

Good luck to all of us in Jonas' path!
 
Is the snow sticky at all?

If so you could always make a little snowman and take a piccy of it and post it here. (From the sounds of it, though, it sounds like it would be a very big snowman, and there will be lots of snow shoveling going on.)

Good luck, and be safe out there, ya'll who are stuck in the snowstorm!
 
Good 15" on the ground and only 15 hours left before this thing starts to pull out of here. It's a winter wonderland out there! No point in shoveling now the wind will only blow it all back and there is another 8"+ expected to fall! The great dig out will start tomorrow :).

So far I have power, which means heat, hot food and internet so I'm happy enough!

It's hard to tell how much snow there really is because of the drifts....at least a foot and a half would be my guess.


Official word is 18" with 8 more expected before the darn thing finally leaves. Right now it's wrapping around back over us :(. There are drifts of at least 3 feet in my yard. I hate winter!!!

Definitely more than 18" now...still snowing, wind is sustained 25-30 mph...gusts much higher...yes the drifts are so deep!

How bad is it near you two compared to the overall scene? Do you have electricity?
We do have electricity, running water, heat, and internet...the essentials in life. :p

I'm 99% sure most every store around is closed. It's impossible to get out and drive. I'm hoping everyone was smart and stocked up on the important things.

Thanks for making me realize how dumb my question was. :p

''Do you have electricity?''

''No, I'm posting on CN thanks to my hamster-wheel generator.''

Anyway, nice to hear.

Well, I could be on my phone. :)

If I didn't have electricity, I'd still most likely be on here off and on.

Maybe it's too early to ask, plus we have to figure in how much it stretched, but which area is most affected by this storm? DC? NYC? Parts of New England?
Based on snow totals should be more Virginia-DC-Baltimore-Philly-South Jersey than farther north.

I'm in NE Philly and it's on maybe 22 hours straight snowing now.
