Just checked the weather channel and it looks like PA might finally get snow, and a good amount. I want to go skiing so bad!!

Looks like Weds will be a snow day.

We're both from the Lancaster/Harrisburg area. I would love to get some snow. Tori has a brand new snowsuit for this year and she's dying to try it out. Right now things are just muddy around here. Yuck!

They're saying that we're going to get it here in Jersey, too. I just saw a weather report that said it should start Tuesday afternoon, and go through to Wednesday.

Has anyone heard how much is expected?

On 97.3 the river this morning it said 6-12 inches. Too bad, John has an "essential" job at the hospital or we would stay home, but why should I lose some PTO if he is going in.

I will get to enjoy it on Tuesday night though, movie night!!!!

Wow! I didn't realize they were expecting that much. (Where the heck have I been :ph34r::lol: )

By tonight all the milk, bread and shovels will be gone from the store shelves :P

JerseyAngel-

I know you will appreciate this, I was in Wegmans over the weekend, in Downingtown since we had taken a trip to Philly to pick something I purchased on Craigslist, the store was a mad house, and you know how their stores are always a zoo. Well you could barely get near the dairy areas and the deli. The bread looked picked through. That didn't bother me, I have no use for it. It seems as if people are stocking up.

:D I was at the Mt. Laurel store yesterday! We noticed the same thing--the deli was a zoo! I haven't seen it that busy since they first opened.

Well, I am getting to enjoy the snow today since I am home from work sick on the couch...but it does look pretty. I am curled under the blanket and I am looking out at the houses on the hill covered in snow.

I am not looking forward to the ice coming though. Still looks pretty.

:( Sorry you're sick today.

We only have had a slight dusting so far. I wonder what it'll look like by morning.

Hope you feel better! :)

Amanda, sweetie, you better hurry up and feel better tomorrow... It's beautiful outside!!! We have about 3", maybe 4", here and Tori finally got to play in the snow. I took her sledding today. Of course, we had a big fiasco trying to find her boots and winter gloves. We ended up putting a pair of dress boots on her and a pair of knit gloves and only stayed out for 5 minutes. She had fun though. She discovered that you can eat the snow. :)

Feel better!!!

I am starting to feel better, it's "my time" and I think between John having another round of the stomach bug, IVF, and every womans favorite time, it just hit me today.

I am so glad Tory got outside today! She will have fun tomorrow, I am hoping the ice doesn't knock out the power , so I already took a shower and cleaned up the kitchen.

We got a lot of snow already. You should make Tory a "snow cone" with orange juice. Enjoy your snow day. I am trying to explain to John that the predicted ice means we should not trek to the Med Center in the morning for work, I have a desk job so it is not a problem if I don't make it, John works on the dock so he is worried that if he doesn't go in and other people make it...well you get the point.

It does look pretty outside though :):):)

We're getting sleet now. Such a shame to ruin all that beautiful snow. I'm glad I got Tori outside today. If there's any snow left tomorrow I'll make her a snow cone with juice. That sounds good.

I'm glad you're starting to feel a little better. No one should have to be sick for beautiful snow days.

Yep ice here now.

One of my coworkers lives in Manheim and she just called and asked if I thought I would make it in tomorrow and she said it is getting worse so she is unsure if she will be in, she had two cars wreck in front of her on 283 on her way home at 2:30, she said she has never been so scared.

It looks creepy outside with the snow glistening a little too much. Kind of like a horror movie. It's still raining a little bit here.

We only live a few minutes from Manheim. I can't imagine how she's going to make it to work tomorrow. We have a really thick coating of ice already and it still has all night to accumulate.

If you and John go to work tomorrow, please be careful! Especially since you go in so early.

Patti, how's the ice out your way? How far away are you from us?

HI my other PA weather birds....

just through open my guest bedroom window and there is a really really fine mist and it's freezing as it hits the skin...is that sleet???? I thought sleet was frozen rain drops.

so glad I don't have to go to work.

I worked in a hospital too and the pressure to open the medical library for the dr and other medical staff was kinda important...but some days we'd just have security unlock the doors and let it be open....on my would take days to put it back together. :lol::)

I had a 'stressful day inside the house...so at 2:30 I got in the NEW CAR and set out to just drive...ended up at boarders and got a celiac disease/dvd of Nora Jones for hubby and a garden magazine for me.

The roads weren't that bad but kept and eye on it...and by the time I got home it was freezing..but it was a good 'mental health' move for me.

amanda, hope your feeling better and the rest of you all stay safe.

yeikes. let's pray we keep elect...last summer for 5 days was enough for me.

hugs all

I know, what you mean about electricity, we have gas heat/cooking here, but the therm is electric so no heat if we lose elect. Supposedly you can manually light the gas stove (electric ignite) but I am very paranoid about doing that.

Ang-I am trying to convince John to stay in tomorrow, but he works in Shipping/Rec. I don't think they will have a lot of freight coming in, all flights around here have been cancelled. Since I am having surgery in a 2-3 weeks he is worried he won't be able to take off for that if he calls in tomorrow. He works in a tricky department.

Judy-It is sleeting here and you can hear it sounds alittle like hail, you can hear it pinging and hitting the house and then the wind starts. It just sounds so violent, I bet it stings when it hits your arms/face.

Judy, when it's wet in the air, but freezes upon hitting or before it hits the ground it is called freezing rain. Sleet is kind of hard I thought, similar to hail, but wetter feeling. I dunno... :) It was definitely switching between sleet and freezing rain here. Yuck! The snow has a nice shiny crust to it now.

Amanda, surgery? Perhaps roads will be better tomorrow and you guys will be able to make it into work. I guess you kind of have to go in if he does, huh? That would suck. I used to work at the same place as my husband and it was so weird when one of us didn't make it to work. It was always like everyone was suspicious. Very odd. It was a small office though.

I hope all our other PA friends are okay with all this ice. Snow doesn't bother me, but ice freaks me out.

Pittsburgh is a mess! it wasn't too bad driving in yesterday, but driving home at 2 was starting to get challenging. Add to that the half inch of ice from last night and I am glad everything was canceled today!

For those of you not familiar, I don't think Pittsburgh knows what arteries are... all the streets I use to commute my 11 miles (40 minutes) to work have houses, some with driveways onto the street, but most with on-street parking. no "snow emergency routes" around here. So the plows have to do their best around cars. oh, and hills. It's illegal to have a flat street here.... Many have quite steep grades. And whether or not the street is plowed seems to vary greatly by neighborhood, because they have separate municipalities every 3 blocks. Makes life interesting!
