Blizzard of 2010 Diary-Part One

Its nearly 10:00am on Wednesday Feb 10, and so far the storm predicted for the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan area has performed almost exactly has predicted by forecasters.

I woke up at 8:15, and went outside to find about 4 inches of snow that had all but stopped....but meteorologists said don't be fooled by what you'll be seeing in the AM, its going to get much, much worse by lunchtime- we're starting to see that now.

It took about half an hour to clear the drive way with the snow blower (which I kissed and thanked for doing its job). But as soon as I finished and salted the area, the snow came back with more intensity. Its starting to snow heavier, and the winds are picking up.

At 10 am local forecasters are saying that the eye of the storm is off the Virginia coast and intensifying, and should be churning up the coast into a classic nor'easter....and officially, its being called a blizzard- I feel so much better about that, it adds drama to the the blog posts.

That's all for now. Time to check out the township website for any news, grab some breakfast, and get ready for the next round.

wait a minute, you slept til 8:15??

I got up at 6 then went back to sleep til 7:30. The snow had stopped but came back with a vengeance at around 9:30. Yup it is indeed a full blown blizzard and we expect it to get much worse before it gets better.

I'm bored, but I have no ambition to do anything. Got any chocolate to spare?

Damn that's mean!

I haven't seen this much snow since 1979. I know it's been reported 1996 was a biggie but for the life of me I can't remember it! I remember 79 cuz my daughter was 2 years old and we slept on the couch all night cuz the husband had to stay at work. Her birthday is tomorrow and we always have snow on or around her birthday!

The winds just started picking up, we're in full blizzard mode!
