    :banana Noreaster Coming

    Monday night/Tuesday a large and powerful Noreaster is coming to parts of the North East. We are due East of the Doyles in Duncannon (PA) and we are to get 1-2 inches per hour of snow during the storm. What is the prediction for the storm in your area?

    Was above freezing last week, down to single digits this week, maybe another foot or so of snow next week... so basically winter. I don't like to complain about winter too much because then the Canadians will mock us.

    Its still Winter, in spite of the spell of unseasonably warm temps the last two weeks. Storms happen, and typically late Winter storms are pretty epic.

    The storm is all my fault, just put the snow blower and rock salt away.

    Best post ever, eh?
    75-80 here and I can't wait to get to the cooler temps on the trail. Hopefully see snow but I'll take anything in the teens. I'm weird like that tho, love and miss my cold weather and snow.

    I never put the shovels away in March; that's just asking for trouble.

    When I was just a sprout in western MA we got one of these March storms. I was attempting to clear the driveway after the plows cleared the street. I slipped and fell on the snow shovel handle. Broke my collarbone. The last time I touched a snow shovel.

    Well, I got Kahtoola Microspikes for X-mas, so I'm pretty sure I put the jinx on any real snowstorms for this year. They are still in mint condition. My money is on a bust around here due to above freezing temps. Projected 6-12"
