This is getting old

Another Winter Blast For The North East




Here we go again. 6"-12" expected, some places may see up to 30”. Winter just will not let go this season. It’s already been snowing for a full day up in New England, and now the storm has worked it’s way down to us.

I should be grateful that we had our little break this past week. It was warm enough to melt off most of the old snow, even letting the grass peek out in several places. Which attracted hundreds of Canada geese, who came and ate it all. So now the lawn is mostly just dirt and goose poop. Great.

Anyway, the local schools are already closed, offices are deciding to shut down, so on and so forth. The roads are still clear right now, but the weather wienies say it’s going to snow for the next 36 hours. Maybe more. I blame Al Gore.

ALBANY, N.Y.—A day after a storm dumped more than a foot of snow, causing tens of thousands of people to lose power and stalling air and rail traffic, weather-weary Northeast residents braced for a repeat—a second storm packing potentially damaging wind gusts up to 50 mph and possibly more than another foot of snow.

The second part of the two-day, 1-2 winter punch was expected Thursday, and the National Weather Service said the storm would be “significant and long-lasting.”

As much as a foot of snow was expected in Philadelphia, which has had its snowiest winter with more than 70 inches and is still digging out from back-to-back storms around the beginning of this month. The Albany area, which was pounded by Wednesday’s weather, can expect more of the same for a second day, and the western Catskills could get up to 20 inches of snow.

Even before a flake fell, the impending storm set off some sharp exchanges among competing forecasters, with one warning of a “snowicane.”

The National Weather Service criticized State College, Pa.-based Accuweather Inc. for referring to the storm that way and for saying it would be “hurricane-like” and a “monster.” NWS meteorologist Craig Evanego said the terminology was “almost inciting the public, inciting panic.”

A major snowstorm is once again targeting the Northeast beginning Thursday, continuing into Friday.  Here is what you need to know to prepare for this high-impact storm:

THURSDAY AFTERNOON/NIGHT
The storm will reach its peak intensity during this time.

Travel impacts will be major, as the storm intensifies rapidly and sweeps toward New England. Major airport delays are likely in Boston (despite a wind-driven rain), New York, and Philadelphia.  Delays will also likely “ripple” to Baltimore and Washington, D.C., despite lighter total accumulations expected there.

High winds will spread up the New England coast, so expect downed limbs, wires, and power outages to become more widespread as the evening wears on.

Winds will intensify on the “backside” of this deepening cyclone from northern New England through Upstate New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, northern Virginia, and West Virginia.

Road travel will become dangerous, if not locally impossible Thursday night in these areas due to heavy, wind-driven snow.

“Inciting the public to panic” much? I guess I’d better run to the store this morning - and this time I’ll remember the toilet paper!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
