The sky opened up here. It's coming down in buckets. Lightning all around. I should probably turn my computer off for a while.

Lightning struck very close to my house and set off my security system late one night. I couldnt turn off the alarm and i had to cut all of the alarm speaker wires to stop it. Funny thing is my alarm wasnt even on when it happened. :shock:
Surge protectors saved my electronics. :thumbup:

Yea, we got it good here in the 'Cuse. A foot of extremely wet snow and some wind. Mostly minor branches fell and hour to shovel driveway/cars and the plow pile up at the end of the driveway X 2.

According to the maps, I'm in the danger zone on this one. That said, It feels a bit overhyped. I say it's gonna be a dud.

I live for duds !
but snow, I can take snow, love the snow.
it's the damn rain starting in a month here, that I already dread.
Hope none of you got too hurt with that flooding last week.

be careful going into that flooded basement sir, not a safe thing if it was a finished basement.

They all feel overhyped these days :lol: Why are we naming snowstorms anyway :?

I'm in the 3-6, 4-8, 2-4, 2-4, 5-8 zone :lol:

Latest models in the last hour show it staying further east and with less mixing. I think it's a dud for me in central PA and the bullseye is moving right over your house :twisted:

If life gives you pine trees, make pinewood derby cars.

Lehigh Valley was in the 10-14" range. Storm moved east and the temps stayed warm. We only got 4-5" total.
