Last I knew, we weren't getting anything here any more.
Sad.
 
2013-02-08 11:59:06 PM
Having to shovel all the shiat up there for so long was good practice.
 
2013-02-09 12:02:54 AM
Meh. 6 inches. Saw one car off the road my whole way home from work. Love driving my Subaru in the snow.

Nothing here in Maryland.

We've got about 20" already.  Ran the snowblower over the driveway once already and it didn't do much good.  Weather.com says we're looking at another 12" or so before it's done.

So far we still have power.  Hopefully it holds out.

Just because the dumb Weather Channel is naming winter storms doesn't mean the rest of the world has to.

To Ted@WCSH6: Tip for news story involving your Portland Towercam

Dear sir,

I am a native Mainer, currently living in Denver. I have been hearing about Winter Storm Nemo on your website for a couple of days now, corresponding with my friends back home and watching the storm roll in on your Towercam. Actually, I have been watching for most of the day. It's a beautiful shot of the city, really makes me homesick. Thank you for letting me watch the blizzard in Maine from my computer in Denver.

I also submitted the link to the Towercam to Fark.com. Here is the link to the fark.com discussion thread: http://www.fark.com/comments/7583059/How-much-snow-are-you-getting-How -drunk-do-you-have-to-get-to-shovel-Can-we-hope-for-no-work-on-Monday- Its-your-official-Winter-Storm-Nemo-discussion-thread-wlink-to-live-ca m

Fark.com: Satirical views on interesting, bizarre and amusing stories, submitted by a community of millions of news junkies, with regular Photoshop contests.

The link will post to the main page of Fark sometime around 3 AM EST. You can expect several thousand clicks to your Towercam page.

I am an active member of Fark with 675 approved submissions and am projected to be on the top 100 Submitters Of All Time list in a month, or so. I have been a news junkie for over 30 years and spend lots of time in my Google Reader queue. I am also looking for part-time journalistic type work. Please contact me with any possible opportunity.


Sounds like a story to me.

You can contact me at:

And thanks again for the awesome cam!


TED RESPONDS!!!


To me, te­d[nospam-﹫-backwards]h­scw*ga­nnett:
Thanks for the email. Not to make you more homesick, but we will be streaming 8 straight hours of Storm Center coverage beginning at 5am Eastern Time online if you want to watch more of our coverage.


Oh well, I tried.
 
2013-02-09 01:29:03 AM
Meh, maybe an inch, two at most. No pity for the rest of you farkers until you hit 38".
 
2013-02-09 01:30:09 AM
Stupid Pacific coast. Arizona is only getting a dusting unless you live above 7,000 feet. We're expecting six inches. It's like bad porno here.
 
2013-02-09 01:48:51 AM
Getting nothing here.  I wish it would snow real good here to keep the locals off the road and I can go out and enjoy some driving in the snow.  Alas, we get an 3/4 of an inch and everyone panics but still tries to go places whether or not they can handle the drive.  Stupid Virginia.  I think next storm I'm going to volunteer to shovel, as opposed to having to deal with no shoveling done, but enough salt put down on the sidewalks (after the snow stopped) for several storms, making walking in the grass on the snow and ice a million times safer.

I'll probably call my dad tomorrow to see how many times he has to threaten my brother to get any shoveling done.

Exactly. Thank you.

I miss having snow in chicago.

Stay safe.

Hope no one in my neighborhood has a medical emergency. It's been snowing since 10 am, and nothing has been plowed.

No snow in San Francisco, They forecasted rain for the weekend all week but it's clear outside.
 
2013-02-09 02:46:00 AM
Pretty much done here in Scranton.
A good 4, not much more. But I'm down in the valley. Mountians probably have 5-7.

It's OK, you could have just said lesbian model.

They're all awesome AWD cars, but you're putting on airs.  You have an Outback wagon.  It's OK.  I want one too.

They get 1,000 plus posts every goddamn time.  When I see that, I understand why "Syfy" shows wrestling every week.  People are farkign stupid.

Yup, clear and 40-50 here in Portland... Oregon.
 
2013-02-09 02:53:33 AM
I came up with this scale based on Sandy and Nemo:

Jim Cantore in area: Its bad but this is the safest possible area to be in.
Mike Seidel: Do not approach, its pretty f---ing bad!
Ali Veshi: CNN is trying to kill the man for some reason, made evident because he's wearing a red jacket.
 
2013-02-09 02:55:46 AM
Oh, here in Central PA we were forecast to have 4-6 inches of snow.  We got maybe an inch.  I didn't even bother with cleaning my sidewalk since it'll melt in a couple of days anyhow.
 
2013-02-09 03:11:13 AM
Snowpocalpse was so much better. Now they just have these "Winter Storm ____". C'mon media. Do the whole Everybody Panic thing.
 
2013-02-09 03:13:12 AM
Uh, no snow here.  Not even one flake.  Was in the garage doing some maintenance on the Road Glide prepping for a ride tomorrow.

Oh, you're not talking about georgia
 
2013-02-09 03:13:29 AM
Mid-Michigan here has about 4-5 inches. I've not checked outside at all since about 6am, so anything can happen in 21 hours.
 
2013-02-09 03:15:14 AM
You mean to tell me that you haven't taken to calling this DEATHSTORM 2013?
 
2013-02-09 03:16:59 AM
Today it was about 60* and sunny. I might go up to Tahoe on Sunday to play in the snow, or I might stay home and bbq. Dunnoyet.
 
2013-02-09 03:19:43 AM
It's been like spring in Colorado.  We're supposed to get some snow tomorrow evening, I hear.  Nothing like what the NE is getting.  I'm jealous.
 
2013-02-09 03:20:13 AM
Still snowing here.  At least it looks like it's still snowing.  Wind's kicking up quite a bit, and I ain't getting pants on to take a walk outside and check the difference between blowing snow and falling snow.
 
2013-02-09 03:21:05 AM
Aloha to that noise
 
2013-02-09 03:23:38 AM
I'm in coastal New Hampshire, and prepared for the storm by storing water, making a nice big pot of chowder, bringing in firewood,  checking the generator, etc.  My neighbors did too, since our neighborhood usually has a blackout that lasts for days.

Now I'm expecting everything to be fine, simply because we're ready for the worst.  As of now, we still seem to have just less than a foot of snow.
 
2013-02-09 03:24:09 AM
What happened to the dire predictions:
"We're all gonna DIE! We're all gonna DIE! Stay tuned for live coverage and/or we'll break in with boring shots of reporters standing in the cold"

I guess ratings are high enough, and they have their ads fully booked.
 
2013-02-09 03:28:23 AM
Hey Weather Channel. The names you give blizzards are wack.

gregscott: What happened to the dire predictions:"We're all gonna DIE! We're all gonna DIE! Stay tuned for live coverage and/or we'll break in with boring shots of reporters standing in the cold"


I was actually killed by the sheer weight of the falling snow earlier this evening.

Fortunately I got better.
 
2013-02-09 03:30:36 AM
Another day of NO SNOW here in WA!

Suck it, NE loooooozers!

10 miles inland of the SoCal coast. It's chilly and we had hail the size of peas this morning. Now my doormat is wet.
 
2013-02-09 03:50:11 AM
Well above freezing down at this latitude.
 
2013-02-09 03:50:17 AM
Snow's all over here in the GTA, roads were crap but I drove downtown to see 2 local bands with Fark in their names (Farked Up and Holy Fark). Takes a lot to knock this maritimer off the road. Figure we got almost a foot.
 
2013-02-09 03:50:34 AM
No snow here in San Diego, big surprise, right? BUT! We did have an inch and a half of ice, on a freeway on a nice slope; cars were seen sliding backwards down the hill. There was hail in the coastal areas which is very uncommon.

Foxxinnia: Hey Weather Channel. The names you give blizzards are wack.


Snow is wack.
 
2013-02-09 03:55:35 AM

/haven't left the apartment in 12 hours.
