It started snowing here in Charles Town (WV) about 11pm and we've already got a good two inches. Forecasts have been upped all day and now they say if the storm swings right we'll be looking at something like 2+ feet of snow before it's all over on Sunday. I staked our driveway boundary with 3' poles when I got home, and I've been down in the garage juicing up the snow blower for it's workout tomorrow.

Looks like we're going to get slammed. Stay tuned... :-)

UPDATE: 12/19 5:28PM - 21 inches so far according to my ruler out on the deck, still snowing!

UPDATE: 12/20 8:12PM - we ended up getting around 2 feet. Spent most of the day digging out here, and even ventured out in the truck for a bit this afternoon. Main roads are being worked on and were OK as long as you have a 4x4. Side streets haven't been touched, but up here in WV everyone has a blade or a snow blower so we take care of those ourselves rather than waiting for the state to come in a clear them. They should be in good shape by morning so we should not have any problem opening the warehouse on time. We've accumulated quite a few orders this weekend, more than I expected, so we'll need to get in tomorrow and get them shipped out. For now I'm going to take some Advil and hit the hay... :-)

Sounds like the local weather didn't get that "global warming" memo huh? Hope everyone's okay out there. With that much snow, things can get dangerous.
