    Big Snowstorm Headed for the Northeast This Weekend

    Read it and weep my fellow New Englanders ..... cuz it's coming.

    Can anyone remember a Halloween when kids went trick-or-treating when there was snow on the ground? I can't.

    I live right -----> there in blue blob of 6-12 inches. This is seriously going to mess up my weekend plans.

    It's messing up ours, too. We were going to go to my fiancee's mom's on Saturday to blow leaves for her and fix the heater in her hot tub, but I'm not sure that will be possible. She has rain forecasted for the morning, then snow after noon. She lives in Harpers Ferry and it's steep driving there.

    Look on the bright side, snow will cover the leaves and ain't no point heating a hot tub under a few feet of snow. Win!

    :lol: True, but Paul is DYING to use his new leaf blower. You know boys and toys! And her hot tub is enclosed in a sun room.

    Yeah, I think the leaf blowing is out of the question. Too bad. New toys can be fun!

    My son is supposed to be driving home from college with his girlfriend late Saturday afternoon. I need to get in touch with him and tell him he'd be better off staying at school. Sigh. We were all supposed to be heading out to a play on Saturday night, but right now jammies, a blanket and movie sound much better.

    I don't remember a Halloween with snow - but I do remember one Easter - back in the 70s, we had a foot of snow in Connecticut !

    Yes, call him. When I was in college, the weather forecast was not priority information for me.

    Once, without checking the weather, I decided to head home on a whim. Got stuck in a blizzard.

    Yeah, call him.

    That was back when they were predicting a decent into an ice age.
