The east coast has a snow storm on our hands & from NJ to Boston .We are expecting about 1-2 ft of snow.  Many trips have been cancelled, the planes have been grounded.  Gas stations have ran out of gas with ppl filling up out of fear the power will get knocked out like Sandy did.

Are you working?  Stranded?  Covering extra shifts because coworkers called out? Catching up on netflix, reading a good book?  Getting some housework done?
 
 
I'm about to take the kids to my parent's house so I can have this place all to myself & clean up w/o distractions.  When dh gets home, we are gonna cozy up & watch season 1 of Scandal
 
What are you doing today BHM?

Hi BHM!! Lovely day I'm having. How about you?

Updated at 2:48 p.m. ET: With the worst still to come, wind-whipped snow coated much of New England and dusted New York on Friday — the beginning of what forecasters said would become a dazzling, dangerous and perhaps even record-shattering winter storm.


https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpages%2FNBCNews-US-News%2F324476340923267&width=292&colorscheme=light&show_faces=false&border_color&stream=false&header=false&height=62" rel="nofollow -

Airlines canceled more than 3,000 flights, Boston closed its subway, Amtrak suspended some service, and cities across the Northeast made plans to deploy an armada of snowplows and salt-spreading trucks.

Forecasters said they expected Massachusetts to get the worst, including accumulation of 3 feet in some spots. The worst snowfall on record in Boston was a 27.5-inch blast a decade ago, a record forecasters said was in danger.

 
 

The weather service warned that the storm would be accompanied by winds almost as powerful as those packed by a hurricane.

“Visibilities will become poor, with whiteout conditions at times,” the weather service said in an advisory issued Friday morning for the Boston area. “Those venturing outdoors may become lost or disoriented.”

Worker Jimmy White attaches chains to tires at a New York City Department of Sanitation facility Thursday in preparation for the major winter storm expected to hit Friday.

The winter storm gathered strength as two weather systems — a so-called clipper pattern sweeping across the Midwest and a band of rain from the South — began to converge over the Northeast.

The Weather Channel said that snow would be heavy at times Friday in New York state, parts of Pennsylvania and most of New England. By Friday night, forecasters called for snow falling at 2 to 3 inches per hour in New England.

Heavy, wind-driven snow was expected to coat New England on Saturday and shift to the New England coast by Saturday afternoon, the network said. Snow was finally expected to taper off in Boston by Saturday night and pull off the Maine coast by Sunday morning.

Amtrak said it would cancel train service between New York and Boston on Friday, with the last northbound train leaving New York at 12:30 p.m. and the last southbound train leaving Boston at 1:40.

Coastal areas of Massachusetts, including Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Island, were warned to brace for wind gusts over 70 mph. Those living on north- and east-facing shorelines from Boston south to Cape Cod Bay were told to prepare for tides 2 to 4 feet above normal.

Flooding and beach erosion were dangers, and the weather service warned of widespread coastal flooding from Boston northward.

“This one doesn’t come along every day,” said Alan Dunham, a meteorologist for the weather service. “Wherever you need to get to, get there by Friday afternoon and don't plan on leaving.”

well, yes  actually.  This is our real major accumulation in 2 yrs.  Last yr it barely snowed at all!!  & whatever little we did get was melted within a couple of days.  This is the kind that will last.  You can play in it, ski, sled, build snowmen etc...
 
And schools were either cancelled or dismissed early over hereClap

I live in Syracuse and this is normal for us.  We were supposed to get hit this morning around 4am.  I was at my cousin's house partying and had to bring my as.s home in fear of being stuck in the storm.  I woke up, no storm.  It's just now starting to fall now.

Updated at 9:30 a.m. ET: A gusting winter storm buried parts of the Northeast under 3 feet of snow and left millions of people with little to do Sunday but wait — for lights to come on, flights to resume and packed-in cars to be freed.

Transportation systems slowly flickered back. New York airports reopened on limited schedules, and Boston’s Logan hoped to open later, even if no flights could take off.

But for the most part, the country’s most populous region came to a standstill for a day. Elected officials pleaded with people to stay inside, even after the snow stopped, to let emergency crews and snowplows do their work.

 

http://www.weather.com/" rel="nofollow - Full coverage from The Weather Channel

“This is going to go on for a number of days,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said. “This will not all be done today.”


Gov. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island warned that while it was no longer snowing, the danger hadn't ended.

"People need to take this storm seriously, even after it's over. If you have any kind of heart condition, be careful with the shoveling," The Associated Press quoted him as saying.

The storm was blamed for at least 10 deaths, including a child poisoned by carbon monoxide and an 81-year-old Connecticut woman who was clearing snow with a blower who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver.

At 8:00 a.m. ET Sunday, 343,601 homes and businesses were without power in New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, down from a total of about 650,000. Some schools in the region said that they would be closed on Monday, according to the AP.

NBC's Ron Allen joins Lester Holt with the latest from Connecticut, a state that had some of the highest snow totals.

And along the coast, including among people battered by Superstorm Sandy less than four months ago, flooding was a concern. The snowstorm announced itself with hurricane-force winds and churned up offshore waters.

When the snow finally stopped Saturday afternoon, cities and towns reported eye-popping snow totals — 40 inches in Hampden, Conn., 38 inches in Milford, Conn., and 34 inches in New Haven. Portland, Maine, got almost 32 inches, breaking its record.

Boston reported a hair under 25 inches, placing the storm in that city’s five-worst on record. Concord, N.H., reported 2 feet. Central Park in New York — by afternoon a sledder’s paradise — reported 11.4 inches.

The National Weather Service recorded peak wind gusts of 83 mph in Cuttyhunk, Mass., the strength of a Category 1 hurricane. There were gusts of 72 mph in Westport, Conn., and 76 mph in East Boston.

On the Long Island Expressway, which looked more like a moonscape than a busy thoroughfare, 60 to 100 cars were stuck in the snow, and police officers worked through the night to free people from cars and get them to safety.

Richard Ebbrecht, a chiropractor, told the AP that he left his office in Brooklyn at 3 p.m. Friday and got stuck six or seven times on the expressway and other roads.

“We were all helping each other, shoveling, pushing,” he said.

He gave up and settled in for the night just two miles from home. At 8 a.m., he walked the rest of the way.

“I could run my car and keep the heat on and listen to the radio a little bit,” he told the AP. “It was very icy under my car. That’s why my car is still there.”

Among the 10 deaths blamed on the storm was an 11-year-old boy in Boston who was overcome by carbon monoxide while keeping warm in the car.

NBC's Ron Mott joins Lester Holt with an updates on the blizzard's aftermath in Rhode Island.

The boy had been helping his father shovel out the car and got cold. The father started the engine, and the boy got inside, a Boston fire spokesman told the AP. But the car’s exhaust pipe was covered by a snowbank.

In a separate incident, also in Boston, a 20-year-old man was found dead in his car. He was also overcome by carbon monoxide fumes.

In Auburn, N.H., a man was killed after losing control of his car and hitting a tree. He was found dead in his car by local authorities.

In Prospect, Conn., an 81-year-old woman was using a snowblower when a driver struck and killed her and fled the scene, Malloy said. In Danbury, a man slipped on a porch and was found dead Saturday morning, the mayor http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/One-Killed-in-Prospect-Crash-190511141.html" rel="nofollow - told NBC Connecticut .

A 53-year-old man in Bridgeport, Conn., was found dead under snow at his house, possibly from hypothermia or a cardiac arrest, authorities said. A 55-year-old New Milford man died after he suffered a heart attack while plowing. A Shelton man, 49, died while digging out his truck.

A man in Livingston County, N.Y., was plowing his driveway with a tractor Friday night when the tractor went off the edge of the road and fell on top of him.

And in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., an 18-year-old woman lost control of her car in the snow and struck Muril M. Hancock, 74, who was walking near the shoulder, police said Friday. Hancock died at the hospital.

<

On the Long Island Expressway, dozens of cars were stuck in the snow, and police officers worked through the night to free people from cars and get them to safety. NBC's Anne Thompson reports.

 
 

In New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Saturday morning that 2,200 pieces of equipment were on the streets, salting and plowing. He said that all the primary streets in the city had been plowed.

“I think it’s fair to say that we were very lucky,” he said. “Looks like we dodged a bullet.”

He said the city had offered help to other places hit harder by the storm.

In Massachusetts, Gov. Deval Patrick had ordered all cars off the roads but announced Saturday afternoon that he was lifting the ban for Interstate 91 and the slice of the state to the west.

Connecticut had a similar ban in place, but Malloy could not say when it might be lifted. He said Saturday afternoon that he expected it to remain in place at least for the rest of the day.

Transportation systems slowly flickered back to life Saturday, but for the most part, the country's most populous region came to a standstill for a day. NBC's Rehema Ellis reports.

The winter storm was fueled by two weather systems — a so-called clipper pattern that swept across the Midwest and a band of rain that churned up from the South. They clashed explosively over the Northeast on Friday.

The storm arrived in earnest Friday night. The governors of New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island all declared states of emergency.

More than 800 National Guard soldiers and airmen were activated in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York to provide roadway support, emergency transportation and back-up for first responders, the Department of Defense said.
