cretinbob: It's almost like people don't remember how winter works


Nope.  Hell, I swear 3/4 of the people in my area forgot how to drive in snow the moment the snow stops falling.

Thankfully, the boss already set up us weekend workers with stuff to do at home so we can stay home and still be considered "working".

It is only the people on the east coast that do not remember.  Everyone else when confronted with a snow storm shrugs, shovels, and moves on.  I always wonder what people from places like Montana or North Dakota think of the east coaster's reaction to winter.

10:1 ratio...  Units are in inches...  So, Boston is looking to get about 250" (or, just over 21'*) of snow in the next 48 hours?  Best of luck to them.

*About 6.5 meters, for our international friends.

I'm about three miles in from the ocean on the north Jersey shore, this looks like it could be a good one. After coming ashore from my ferry job tonight I stocked up on red wine, pulled a big steak out of the freezer, pulled a bunch of firewood in from the pile to burn in the fireplace all day while playing and badly singing to CCR, Jim Croice and Cat Stevens.

Since it is a single storm, I will refer to these as unibombers. Imagine the fear and confusion 😃

There is a really good weather forum i keep track of for stuff like this by me. Its like actual meterologists and insiders and shiat.

It has been downright hysterical the last 2 days as everyone will eventually be, "ok, we see what is going on....we got this...." and then like 2 hours later a new model will come in and everyone will lose their shiat.

They stopped trying to call this thing this morning, and now its just people goofing off in what is usually a really formal scientific kind of discussion.

Anyway, i went and got the big snow blower ready just in case, made 2 trips for parts, tested everything out, took a nice chunk out of a knuckle on a bolt that was seized, played the equivalent of a crappy chinese mobile game to re-arrange everything in the shed so i could get it in and out easy, so i predict all of 3 inches, and i'm sure my shovels are now in the worst possible spot because of all of that.

Yeah shore looks like it is going to be good for this. I'm still hoping it hooks about 20 miles west, i don't mind a nice dump on the weekends, campgaw could use the snow, and i wouldn't mind getting out there with the kid sunday.
 
2022-01-28 9:25:41 PM  
Wife and I just moved to middle MA from TX about five months ago. Having gone through the TX snowpocalypse without power for three days, I'm not worried. We're stocked up and ready. I actually look forward to seeing a foot of snow for the first time in I have no idea how many years.

Campgaw? Now that's a place I haven't heard about in many years. I learned to ski there and Bear Mountain back in the 70s.

Brother works at a car dealership and they are open and fully staffed tomorrow.  Manager is sleeping in the store to make sure people show up.  All cars are inside.  0 chance of seeing a customer with blizzard ending around 7pm.  When your employees are 100% commission based you lose touch with reality.
I announced my store (not car) is closed 2 days ago so we were busy today and Sunday.  It actually saves me money because we do almost same amount of business and I don't have to pay the employees...but we did so well they are getting a paid snow day and will find out sunday

You forgot the icecream. Go out fast and get some before it's to late.   The proper ratio is 1/2 gallon per 6" of expected snow.  We may get 18 but I got 2 gallons/4 flavors just to be safe

Not much has changed, well, Bear isn't around anymore i think.

Campgaw is still what it always has been, a great learning mountain. Crowds are nuts on weekends though.

Take your kid up to Belair in the lower Catskills, it is state run and cheap for the kids to learn. Our group would take them up there for the weekends and have a decent time on the mountain also.

We got a couple inches of snow the other day, which is completely normal for my location, and I saw more tracks going into the ditch and tow trucks than ever before. Not coincidentally we've had a huge influx of "investors" and other outsiders purchase property here the last few years. The "investors" are the worst. They think they can turn a fat profit on year one with short term vacation rentals expecting a high occupancy rate even though our peak tourist season lasts three months with good weather. I'm a real estate broker and property manager, so I love when they contact me for help. Like, too little too late bud. You should have consulted with me before buying that property. But no, they thought they were being savvy going direct to the seller's agent as if it would save them money. Guh

I like how the east coast loses their god damned minds over an amount of snow that would be an average winter storm in the Great Lakes.

12-18" of snow? Pfff ... lemme know when they get 5-6 feet.

I love Belair, probably the best mountain in a day trip drive. (Ok, Hunter holds a place in my heart, but the experience there is from days long ago).

From a learning side, i really can't knock campgaw, its super cheap, especially if you have a county card, the runs really let you get a sense if someone can move up to something more serious. Everyone roles their eyes at it, but watching my kid just start out, i'm so glad we have it. I can bounce over there after breakfast, get some runs in with her, and be home for lunch.

It is what it is.  The media is based in NYC and D.C. so they report on east coast weather as if it is a global emergency when most of the country do not give a flying f about snow in the east  After all, the east coast weather impacts the reporters' lives, therefore it is important to everyone else in their minds.

Very good for your kids indeed, when I learned on Bear Mountain all they had were two tow ropes and they used to laugh at you when you ended up in the creek after coming down. Since learning to ski from there I have skied many of the best places in the Alps, all of Canada and the western US. It did help that my wife was president of the At&t Holmdel ski club at Bell Labs for many years that I was able to do this in my lifetime. Sadly my knees have given out at sixty.
