They keep mentioning a repeat of the "Blizzard of 78" and those of us who are old enough to remember these scenes, are hoping they are exaggerating.
Tens of thousands of cars were just abandoned on the highways. It took days and days to get them out.
Most of the state was declared an emergency with motor vehicle travel prohibited in most areas.
I'm praying my front yard doesn't look like this on Saturday.
true story: My first driver's test was a few days after the 78 storm. Everyone was telling me to reschedule so I wouldn't have to parallel park and deal with huge piles of snow. Being 17 and knowing everything ( ), I took it anyways. Failed. Passed the second time several weeks later.
Also the fact they dont show 18 - 24 for nyc right now is a miss service to all of you guys and the population who don't understand how bad this storm will be.I am trying my best to get the word out.60 mph gusts and 18 - 24 inch snows with massive drifts.Sure sound like fun.
I just finished my second cup of coffee after going to fill up a gas can for my generator.
Prior to that, really wanted to go down, and bang, my wife this morning as she looked/smelled so great coming out of the shower. My plans were thwarted, however, as Borgoboy was still home waiting for the bus. Guess there's tonight and/or this weekend.
Is that enough of an update or might you need more information at the point of insertion/first "tongue lashing". I should still be able to maintain turgidity to run to the computer to fill you in. Or maybe a hand held media device is more prudent?
