    We are getting reports the east coast of the US and Canada is about to get upwards to a metre of snow over the next 24 hours just wishing you all good luck nd hope you weather it all well and safely .
    The BBC report a blizzard of epic porpotions is about to hit .
    On a plus for the UK and Europe is this will break a cold spell thats been effecting us these last four weeks replacng it with slightly warmer air .
    Fingers crossed that because of this we dont get the awful storms of last year .
    Good luck Guys and wrap up warm

    Dave and Val

    I've been watching coverage for a few hours now. Not too bad there yet but its picking up.

    Reminds me of the famous Groundhog's Day blizzard of 2011. They say we got 2' but drifting caused our entire driveway and as far as the eye could see to have about 3' to 4'. Some drifts were as high as 8'. It was the craziest storm I have ever seen. Very windy the entire night, and snow was falling faster than anyone could shovel. You couldn't even see across the street until it let up. I remember seeing about 8" covering the driveway in less than two hours. Even so, by the end of the next day roads were mostly clear and everything was back to normal other than the mounds of snow along roads and driveways. New York City and Boston have a lot of flat-roofed buildings, so they may have some problems with cave-ins.

    We stopped at 3 -4 inches, New York is not getting hit like predicted, 10-12 inches instead of xx feet. The storm is circling back down, still not predicting a bad hit here.
