Snow!

Postby princess garnet » Fri January 22nd, 2016, 4:27 pm

To fellow forum members who live on the US east coast, please stay safe and warm with the oncoming snow. This is our 1st major snowfall of the year and it's supposed to be a biggie!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Apparently they are expecting this to shut down the East Coast. Stay safe, and consider moving to California! (Although we do have parts that get plenty of snow.)

Expected snow totals for my part of New Jersey are now 14-20 inches!!! This storm is affecting 85 million people, 25% of the USA population. Everyone on the east coast, stay safe and I hope no one loses electricity.

My parents are outside Philly and their house always loses power during storms (summer or winter) so hopefully it's not out for too long.

Snow totals have been upped in my area of New Jersey to 18-24 inches. The wind is starting to pick up.

We still have snow from over the holidays. (It was only a foot or so though.) Stay safe, east coast folks.
