Default US snow storm of the century - 03-14-2017, 09:12 | posts: 4,839 | Location: Sweden

Looks like it's gathering up to be a storm of biblical proportions! 60cm or 2 feet of snow is said to fall within 24hrs. If I understood correctly it will hit NYC so IRL Division Survival Mode might be a reality Jokes aside, anyone living in the wake of the storm that can provide us with images or videos?

Apparently this will be the biggest blizzard in over 120 years.

I think the last really really good snow fall here in Western PA would be the Super Storm of 1993. Were we got 20+ inches very quickly. I think after that would be February of 2003. Maybe this the storm of the Century for places like New York but the rest of the U.S the storm of the Century is the Super Storm of 1993 where places where you do not think of snow fall got like 20+ inches. Places like Georgia for example. Florida got tornadoes and heavy thunder storms.

Not entirely sure why you'd want crippling snow like that again, i wasn't a fan of the random bus services due to snow, people not coming in to work, my heating bill going through the roof and compacted snow ice on the ground for like 3 months

Oh, and my city ran out of grit many times and didn't have the amount of snow clearing vehicles needed to cope

Same happened here, I got stranded at work, well, outside my closed work with no buses or taxis available and no answer from my boss, for 2 hours in the snow

But once a year for a few days / week or two ~ isn't the end of the world, something to look forward to IMO, if it lasted for months then I'd agree but a few days is just fun

Snow storm of the centrury, again? Can't have anything to do with global warming and climate change. Because that doesn't exist, and if it did, it wouldn't be caused by human pollution. And that's fact.

Seriously guys, just make sure you don't get hit by sliding buses and not get stuck in the snow outside. Stay safe

I heard this on Swedish radio so it's absolutely possible that some information got lost in the translation Jokes aside now when I check CNN it does say that it wasn't as bad as predicted.

We never get extreme weather where I live but Stockholm did get a lot of snow several days in a row. And funny thing is that it's always "panic, anarchy and death" when this happens. Northern Sweden on the other hand copes perfectly well with snow since it's perpetually on the ground for several months.

Agree to disagree. I'll heed official weather alerts from the appropriate sources. I'll typically ignore the general media outlets and their fanfare that they use to generate reviews.

I live in the deep south so the first warning of bad weather we get is a big boom of thunder/lightning followed by high winds = Get the f**k somewhere safe....Now!




and then you see!

It's a bit of a mess outside at the moment but nothing like the 50 centimeters promised. The storm started out well from what I saw before I went to bed, but from what I heard on my bedroom windows throughout the night much of the precipitation came down as wind whipped sleet and ice. The major snow fell north and west of here.

The local media here have been reporting on this for a few days and the weather channel is in geek mode. Nothing new, ratings...

So far, nothing compared to a few years ago when we had a full blown blizzard with -20 (F) temps with lots of snow, as well as a few significant lake-effect storms. We've only got 6-8 inches of snow, but closer to the coast they have more. The wife and I are honestly surprised that schools are closed here (but are happy since we're both teachers).

Hope everyone closer to the coast is safe and warm.
