Default In a Blizzard right now!!!!

Some of you guys may be used to this but man we are getting our butt kicked by a Blizzard here on Long Island right now. They are saying 20 inches of snow and 50+ mph winds. I can attest to that because it is coming down so hard we have whiteout and the wind is blowing like crazy. Thank goodness I have this week off.

It's really bad out. I just had to drive from Staten Island to Brooklyn for work. I'm just hoping I make it home tonight.

Yeah, the snow is insane. I just got home from driving from Holbrook (mid Suffolk County) back home to DC in this mess of a storm. Luckily it's not nearly as bad here as it will be up there!

Winds are definitly in the 30-40mph range right now. I just went across the street to get gas and it took about 20 minutes. One guy is stuck in our parking lot!

Yup, It's pretty intense here in Boston already. We are expecting upwards of 20+..The snow is going sideways, lots of power outages.

That's that crap that came through here earlier in the week.. Another one came through here last night, and we're sending it your way... Was a blast driving home from the step moms last night in white out conditions (NOT!).. A 30 minute drive took more than two hours....

fun stuff.. It's amazing how valuable home brew becomes to me in such conditions... Just don't leave your house unprepared for the worst, and if and when you should encounter it, don't panic.. just take your time and be methodical in your decision making process.. mankind has survived 60-100 centuries or more of this crap with far less at their disposal than you have...

drink some happy juice and go make snow angels with the kids...

Go get 'em buddy! I used to do that type of work. Nothing makes a hot bowl of soup and a beer taste better.
