Re: 967 mb Major Nor'easter!!! HISTORIC BLIZZARD!!! 4 deaths...
It's the combination of wind, flooding, and snow that make a winter N'oreaster something you'll never forget.

I fondly remember the great N'oreaster of 1978 in Boston. The little mom n pop on Massachusetts Avenue selling its last edibles in the dark, writing up the tabs by hand. Empty shelves. Cross-country skiiers enjoying the roads, including the interstate. Neighbors we'd never seen before yelling out their open window, inviting one and all to a beer party.

A young family unable to get home because of the flooding on their street, finding shelter with friends.

Afterwards, it took about 3 weeks before the plumbing could be repaired, with everyone's freezing up at the same time, the power having been out so long. It was a nightmare, that.

If this is a really big one, this weekend will be long remembered.
 Quoting: Crazy Harriet


if the power goes out leave a tap trickling so that it doesn't freeze. It won't cost you much,- the price of a few baths.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21903530


If the power goes out for an extended period, you are probably better shutting off the water main, usually a red handle by the water meter. Drain pipes can freeze as well, so letting water trickle can just add to your problems.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33974213


If you guys loose power and are worried about your pipes. First open all your water valves in the house, then go into the basement and drain all the main lines. After that you can throw some antifreeze in all your sinks and shitters to fill up the traps to stop them from bursting.. that should take care of things and stop your pipes from blowing up.. good luck

Mostly sleet on Long Island so far...

Looks like 2 or 3 inches of crap so far.

8:40 PM

Power is on, warm and dry, all is fine.

People out driving are having a tough time of it.

You guys are about a day behind us here in Toronto. That is when it started snowing here yesterday. And it is still snowing. :) Not as much, but still coming down and still windy. Freezing cold down by the lake. You guys are right beside the ocean too, so you have it rougher!

Sadly, there are morans on this site who think this storm is no big deal. They have no clue the difference between light fluffy snow and wet heavy snow.

Oh I will. Filled the fuel tank a few days ago and recently bought an elec. space heater so when I feel cold I can just sit near that instead of turning up the thermostat. haha. If worst comes to worst and we lose power, my parents are less than 5 minutes away and have a wood stove. A few years ago, I believe it was 2004, we got a really bad snow storm in October and we lost power for 3 days. Stayed with them, it worked =)

Well I can't speak for others that are being affected, but from where I am its a major disappointment. Calm winds and normal snow.. just a lot piling up now. But if this continues for days on end then I would call doom on.

I'm in NEPA and I have checked with friends in Westchester.. nothing special or noteworthy as yet.

Seems to be a lot of hype by the gov and media on this one.

Too much hype will kill the buzz when the real doom comes, people will be complacent next time.

What a shame.

What a bunch of pansies!

We get over 200 inches every year - we don't act like the world is coming to an end. We just laughed at the Weather Channel dude standing in NYC Times Square and telling the world how horrible the weather is - you could see the damn pavement in the background! I haven't seen the pavement on our main street in two months - we still don't miss a day of school.

SHUT THE HELL UP!

It is a little moisture - get over it.

Why does everyone in the NE think that the world revolves around them? It is really pathetic to watch. I am embarrassed that they are not embarrassed by their own behavior.

Just a bunch of sissies…

glad you have plans and supplies ready. I am really excited to use my new monster snow blower tomorrow. woot woot, No more shoveling for this guy..

I am sure you already know this but i will say it for anyone else reading.

If you loose heat and its nasty out where its not safe to travel move everyone into a small room or closet in the center of your house. Just the body heat from a few people and a candle or two can keep you reasonably warm.

good luck everyone, its only half over..

Don't know how bad it is by you Amy but here on Long Island it varies, much worse on the North Shore Here.

THings are not so bad on the South Shore here, 4" of ice/snow so far and I expect no power outage.

Damn, I bought $100 of gasoline just in case... Oh well will dump it in my boat with some stabalizer.

Looking forward to summer :)

Hope you guys further North find it also much easier than expected.

Best Wishes,
