    Thanks.

    It wasn't really too bad from my perspective, except the driving home at 1130PM on Friday, during the snowstorm. Thankfully, I was carpooling, and it was the other guy's turn to drive.

    They are saying 32 inches at nearby Dulles Airport

    That would make this the biggest storm in recorded history.

    " Sept. 28, 2009 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Northeast may have the coldest winter in a decade because of a weak El Nino, a warming current in the Pacific Ocean, according to Matt Rogers, a forecaster at Commodity Weather Group.

    “Weak El Ninos are notorious for cold and snowy weather on the Eastern seaboard,” Rogers said in a Bloomberg Television interview from Washington. “About 70 percent to 75 percent of the time a weak El Nino will deliver the goods in terms of above-normal heating demand and cold weather. It’s pretty good odds.”

    Warming in the Pacific often means fewer Atlantic hurricanes and higher temperatures in the U.S. Northeast during January, February and March, according to the National Weather Service. El Nino occurs every two to five years, on average, and lasts about 12 months, according to the service.

    Hedge-fund managers and other large speculators increased their net-long positions, or bets prices will rise, in New York heating oil futures in the week ended Sep. 22, according to U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data Sept. 25.

    “It could be one of the coldest winters, or the coldest, winter of the decade,” Rogers said."

    It looks like we're going to get another 4-8 inches of snow on Tuesday night / Wednesday morning. What the ****, DC? One of the reasons I left Ohio was to AVOID this kind of weather.

    So where in Michigan are you guys from. I attended a year of High School in Mt. Clemons,Michigan and graduated from Alpena college in '78'

    Edit: I see later in the thread where you are from. I was in Alpena during the blizzard of 77 -78. We got about three feet up there I think.

    Now they're saying 10-20 more inches here. This is on top of the 2-3 feet or so that we already have.

    You have my sympathies. Any neighbors smoke?

    I don't know why people are bellie aching over this storm. Sure it's a lot of snow, but we in the NE endure that every winter (except this one dammit! ). The roads will be plowed soon enough. It's just snow for Heaven's sake.

    We are not nearly as prepared for this kind of thing as you guys are. Having already gotten school off last Friday and Wednesday (and, unrelatedly, Monday), it looks like we're going to get this entire week off.

    One measly foot of snow is a big deal here, and we got way more than that.
