Still coming down strong....1 to 3 inches an hour in this neck of the woods.

If anyone is on the road in NYC, the police will arrest them.

West Va.--first state with 40 inches. Somerset, Pa ( three hrs from here ) has 35 inches.

I think this storm may come close to eclipsing 1996's snowfall.

They predict 5-8 inches more ( 5:30 PM) here and in NYC before its over.

56 mile an hour winds on top of this stuff....

I'll be getting good use out of my Manchester United scarf.....second time I've had to use this ever since Adam Wood bought it for me a decade ago.
Pretty big scarf...covered all 7 of my chins.

A Liverpool FC scarf would keep you warmer, my man.

This is officially Baltimore's biggest snowstorm (within a three-day period). We've had 29.2 inches of snow at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport since the storm began, as of 7:00 pm, and it's not over yet.

And this is why I'm not complaining about the couple of inches, give or take, we got. Road in front of the house is all clear. My driveway melted off in the sunshine today...not that I'm going anywhere any time soon. Temps supposed to be in the 40s tomorrow and 50s on Monday, so the snow will be mostly gone pretty quick.

Y'all stay safe and warm.

This is the scarf you need, How. It's very hip.

I just read where the Governor of Tennessee declared a state of emergency for your state.....for 5 inches of snow ?
I know in Texas the head hayseeds called school off for 1 1/2 inches of snow ( true story and the snow hadn't arrived yet. Texans are stupid and can't drive all that well in snow) back when I was in school...

I wasn't making fun of Tennessee....the roads there seem to be in better shape than many on the East Coast....which is what caught my eye.
Up until a few years ago, elementary schools didn't close up here for 5 inches of snow.

I think the middle and east parts of the state got harder hit than here in West Tennessee. Usually we don't get much snow so we're not used to it and can't drive on it either. We get school called off for what northerners would consider piddling amounts, too.

No offense taken because it's true. LOL I don't get out on the road even in a dusting. I'm one of those who heads to the store and stocks up if there's even a hint of snow or ice in the forecast. Then I just stay in until it all melts off, usually in a few days.
