Now the forecast is for it not to go above freezing again until the 8th, if that holds we will have had almost 2 weeks below freezing.

Growing up in Connecticut that was pretty common, but I don't think it's happened in the 30 years I've lived here in PA.

Had to break out extra space heaters; one for my living room and one for my bedroom :speechless:

Not sure what to believe about this storm, Accuweather is saying total 1 to 3 inches, National Weather Service says 1 to 3 tonight plus another 2 to 4 tomorrow.  Some reports said it should be snowing already but it's not....

Radar shows snow is close but the air in place is so dry (single digit dew point) I think it will delay things a bit.

40 mph gusts, snow, and in the low 20s, it's a blizzard out there...

Work closed so I've got a snow day.

At least none of it is sticking to the trees, although with it being so cold the trees might be more brittle and the wind might still do some damage.

Just looking at the graphs for the weather station at work, the barometer has dropped an inch in the last 24 hours.

We got an inch this morning before I went to work, and it's been coming down all day so far.

The satellite loops are impressive to watch, looks just like a hurricane with well developed eye.

On the radar it looks like Boston is really getting hammered.

Boston ALWAYS gets hit. It could be snowing in Washington State and Boston would still get hit.

You know the humidity is crazy low when you are using liquid nitrogen and there is practically no frost building up on stuff....
