East coast is gonna get blasted, no gas station in my area has any gas, shit's weird folks.

I've already got the weekend off and I'm going to take my kids out and make some snowmen and drink, unless the power goes out. Then we bake!

How's predictions by you? Snow plans?

    Work off tomorrow, despite the fact that snow won't start until ~4 in the afternoon

    It was scheduled as my off day anyway

    My work is also open tomorrow but closing by noon
    This means we'll all go in, get no work done, and then the entirety of DC will attempt to leave the city at exactly the same time
    It's fucking stupid

    I would say the politicians have enough sense to just take the day off

    but it's Friday they were not coming in anyway

    I've got a full work day ahead of me tomorrow, unless somehow we lose power.

    And we get all the fun of lake effect snow where I am.

    Isn't the Weather Channel literally the only place that really names winter storms, and actual meteorological organizations have told them to knock it off?

    But they won't because it's sensational and Weather Channel is a but husk of its former self.

    Damn it, they gave it the same name as my nephew. I hope he doesn't get ragged on about that at school. Of course, we're in the Chicago area, which is hopefully unaffected by this.

    And yes, he was quasi-named after the song.

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    There was some speculation that we might get hit, but the last couple days it seemed we would miss the brunt of it and now it's, "Maybe some flurries, but no accumulation."

    It'd be interesting to see the impact on my company's shipping, but I don't work with those numbers.

    I live in Northwest Indiana. Usually by this time of the year we've had 2 or 3 blizzards. It was 60 through most of December, and now its just really crazy cold but no snow.

    That was our once-per-decade snowstorm.

    Unless you were north of say Waco. In which case ice is a regular thing.

    But south of DFW? Pffft.

    Two whole inches?!? My God, you're lucky you weren't eaten when the jerky ran out!

    (But seriously, that much snow is cause for concern since it freezes and thaws so rapidly and fuckin' nobody has snow tires or tire chains.)

    I always get annoyed when people laugh at how Texans react to snow, but seriously, we do not have the infrastructure to deal with anything like that. If it snows in central Texas, consider businesses and schools and etc. shut down.

    In Mass, it was going to Snowmageddon, but now it might be some flurries but probably not. This is fine by me, cause fuck snow. It's been really cold though, but I will take frigid over snow. Fuck snow.

    My wife is in Thailand though and it's like 80something so fuck her too.

    If you're going to name hurricanes and tropical storms why not name winter storms?
