Blizzard

Hope all is well for you who are in the path. We had snow flurries here in Gainesville, Florida this morning. I saw three. We are breaking out the salt trucks and plows, if we had any. Not to make light of the situation, you all be well and warm. Be careful!

Blizzard

We are enjoying the 2016 blizzard here in PA with 20 inches thus far with approx. 12-16 more hours yet to accumulate the final amount. Weather predictions are for 30 inches or more and 40 mph wind will likely cause considerable drifting.
Looking forward to our travels to Florida in March!

While listening to the news last night, we started discussing past weather. Grew up in Eastern Kansas where we got snow, but usually 4-6 inches and it lasted only a few days. When we traveled to Colorado, there were large drifts along the highway, but the heaviest I can remember in KS was about 24 inches in SE corner of the state. So 24-36 inches sounds like a lot.

Stay inside where it is warm and enjoy the view. Sympathy goes out to those that have to work in those conditions. A good time to be retired with no medical emergency and food in the fridge. Stay safe. Pat

I do not understand why there are thousands of people stranded on interstates all over this storm zone.

What are people doing out there...on any roads..when they have been warned of this storm and told to stay off them!!!

It's not like this was a surprise.

Geeesh!

I do hope you mean 30", not 30'.

My roof has had that much, and never had a problem...but if you have 30' that could be a big problem.

Ahhh, Ireland.

Take a good sniff of a peat fire for me.

And tell the land lady to heat some bricks to warm your feet as well. But stay away from that foamy stuff or you'll never get home. Pat

Depends on the pitch of your roof. On a flat roof 30" might be a problem. On even a moderately pitched roof the weight of the snow and any increase in temp above freezing should make it slide off

Hard to say 30 ' of fluffy powder is nothing. heavy wet pack is another story.

This short weather report is appropriate in Virginia and its neighboring states.

Our son is jumping today not far from you at Camp Blanding. He said it was cold -- had no idea how cold.
