We are under a blizzard warning and are forcasted to get 24" to 32" of snow now through tomorrow night. Love snow and am excited but snow totals that much and winds 30-40 mph it can get very dangerous. To all of you in the storms path please be safe.

Official total where I live was 30". There is no where to go with the snow. A lot of roads haven't been plowed yet. It is a mess and they are calling for another one this weekend. Unreal.

I suppose you would have to keep plenty of non perishable food in the house to manage when this happens. They showed Times Square earlier today on the tv and it was deserted.
