Blizzard?? We ain't afraid of no stink'n blizzard...

Looks like the stars are aligned and combinations in place for a blizzard tomorrow night into Sat up here in the Northeast. Watches already posted for Boston and thereabouts.

Checklist...

Gas for the snowblower and generator - Check.

Ice cream - Check. Not sure why ice cream is a must-have during snowstorms, but every other person in line at the local Quicky Mart has a pint of B&J in their hand. The owner said he sells more during a snowstorm than on the hottest summer day.

Beer - Check.

Did I forget anything???

Here in Wisconsin they've forgotten what a blizzard actually is I think, and every normal winter snowstorm is labeled "Blizzard!!!" it seems.

j/k

You forgot bread. Apparently bread is important to have during a storm, because the store shelves go bare every time we get a big one. I think bread can help you get traction if you throw it under your tires?

You need bread to make french toast when you're snowed in.

Yes, it seems bread, milk, and eggs are also staples. Could be the french toast thing as tossing it under your tires gives better traction than regular old bread. Eggo waffles work good too.

I've noticed something about our winter storms. Now they are getting names. What's up with that? I thought that was reserved for hurricanes here in this hemisphere.

About "Nemo"(how silly), My house is exposed at the top of a prertty big hill facing east. I always get nailed hard if there is any wind associated with the storm. It's funny, after a big blowing snow storm, I can be standing on bare pavement in one place and have a 5 foot drift right next to me. I am very practiced at the art of the snowblower and shovel, so whatever.

My checklist: Snowblower fueled and ready-check

Wood for woodstove-check

Groceries-Will be a check this evening

X Box 360/ GTA-check

After Superstorm Sandy last year, my number one list item is gas - lots of it - for the generator.

And maybe a little for the snowthrower (but the generator has priority).

Amen. Everytime that we get 3" on a slow news day they turn it into big news. It's funny. I watch WISN news in Milwaukee.......

"SNOW DESK 12; YOU'RE GUIDING LIGHT IN THE STORM.......WITH YOU ALL THE HOME"



Stop it. It's snow. It's winter in Wisconsin.

I hope we get socked. Snow is pretty. I want to go skiing tonight.

Hate the wet crap, hate the temps in the low-mid 30's.

Gimme 20 degrees and fluffy.

We're supposed to get 3-5" of slop. (My money's on 3")

Heavy to clear.

I'll chew a couple aspirin before I shovel...

Otherwise it's "I'm comin' Elizabeth !"

" It's winter in Wisconsin."

Exactly.

And I don't even own a snowblower. I've got shovels, and sons.

Some nights we make extra snow.



Then go for a ride.



Then go for another ride.



Then we sit by a fire and then do it all over again.



Skiing here is pretty humble compared to being out west but we do have fun in the snow. It's pretty outside and it's fun. Bring it on.

I feel sorry for people who live on white sand beaches. Poor folks.

Those aren't NWS storm names but just more Weather Channel garbage to add 'drama'. Think the 'TorCon Index'. This is from a guy who actually watched TWC some years back when they occasionally covered the weather.

Enjoy your snow!

Looks fun! That takes me back to my HS days in NE Ohio and our very popular ski club. We'd hit the local slopes, no great shakes compared even to W NY state, but buckets of fun nonetheless.

Cry not for me, I'm doing fine

Funny to me how it's always the folks in the great white north who bring up FL weather to us who live here... I *never* mention it, unless asked

As to the drama and panic on the teevee regarding winter weather, I commented on that very thing while watching the noon news today. Just cuz it ain't happening to us, doesn't mean our local weather guys aren't rupturing a spleen talking about it, believe me...

As for the OP's list, the only thing I can think to add is ~

Contraceptives

I'll be scuba diving in Mexico in 4 weeks. I envy your Florida weather. When I get older I doubt that I'll love the snow as much as I do now. I just had to be a wise-*ss.

When it's white and pretty, winter is delightful. When it's 33 degrees and we live in cold brown mud, it's not so good.
