Northeast Blizzard

Get those plows and blowers ready. In my area we are looking at 14 to 24 inches starting tomorrow. Looks like NJ, NY Pa and MASS, heck the entire Northeast is going to get hammered. Get the “go pros” ready let’s see some video with snow removal on great blizzard of 17, It was 70 degrees here two weeks ago. Good thing I kept the snowblower on X590

Re: Northeast Blizzard

I'm not looking forward to it. I'm working, so my wife will be getting the bulk of the seat time.

Re: Northeast Blizzard

The rain/snow line predictions keep changing here. What started as 24" is down to 6" on some reports. Guess that means they have no idea. Just have to wait and see. Everything is fueled up ready to go. I'd much rather plow in 25 deg. than 33 deg. Cold is OK, cold and wet, not so much fun. Guess I need a cab.

Re: Northeast Blizzard

There calling for 15” to 20” here which means it will probably be more. Last week I almost swapped the blade for the bucket. Who knew? I’m ready and all fueled up.

Re: Northeast Blizzard

Our blizzard watch is now a blizzard warning for tomorrow. I'm still seeing 12-18 inches on WC. The tractors are ready to go. There are a lot of trees around here so I'm going to set up, and run the generator today. I'm also going to pick up enough fuel line so that I can syphon gas from our vehicles in case of a prolonged power outage.sued: 4:18 AM EDT Mar. 13, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Blizzard Warning in effect from midnight tonight to midnight
EDT Tuesday night...

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a Blizzard
Warning, which is in effect from midnight tonight to midnight EDT
Tuesday night. The blizzard watch is no longer in effect.

* Locations... metropolitan New York City and New Jersey, western
Long Island, southern Westchester, southern Fairfield, southern
New Haven, northern Middlesex, and northern New London
counties.

* Hazard types... heavy snow and blizzard conditions. Snow may mix
with or change to sleet and rain across southern and eastern
coastal areas late Tuesday morning into Tuesday afternoon.

* Snow accumulations... 12 to 20 inches... highest amounts to the
north and west.

* Snowfall rates... 2 to 4 inches per hour early Tuesday morning
into early Tuesday afternoon.

* Timing... late tonight into Tuesday evening.

* Impacts... dangerous travel due to whiteout conditions at times.
Several roads may become impassable. Power outages possible.
Damaging wind gusts possible across Long Island and coastal
Connecticut.

* Winds... northeast 25 to 35 mph with gusts 40 to 55 mph on
Tuesday. Highest winds across coastal areas.

* Temperatures... in the upper 20s.

* Visibilities... one quarter mile or less at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel... have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded... stay with your vehicle.

Re: Northeast Blizzard

I prob won't need the blower with 8-12", but if it pushes east just a little then that will up.the totals.....hopefully the track will not come west and add in mixing.

Re: Northeast Blizzard

Yep, it's coming. Everything is ready. Got plenty of gas, propane and sand, the blower is on and set to go. It's going to be windy! Generator(s) on standby. All I need to do is stock up on some food...
