    Could this one be for real? The last two "snowstorms" were way overhyped. I'm originally from N.J., but I live in the Philly burbs now. Anyone else in the storm path, if you do get snowed in, what are your plans?

    I buy bacon, cook it, so if the power goes out I eat that cold, but at least it's cooked.
    Also, fill the gas tank, and charge all the phones, iPad.

    I get my weather predictions from NOAA.gov (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). It's been the most accurate source in my experience; it's to-the-point, and is free of all the sensationalism found in mainstream media sources.
    As of now it looks like they're predicting 5-12" total over the next 2 days for my area...

    It's really windy here today. Those gusts bring the wind chill down to 64.

    Good lord. The high today is 81.

    When I put on shorts there will be a beacon of light that will reach all of you simultaneously. You're welcome.
