The powerful winter storm that pounded the Midwest is expected to drop more than a foot of snow on some parts of the Northeast, bringing more travel plans to a screeching halt with high winds, snow and sleet.

The system, which spawned Gulf Coast region tornadoes on Christmas Day has already dropped more than 9 inches on Buffalo, N.Y., as it continues to churn north and move out to sea later today. Northern Connecticut residents are waking up to 6 inches while those in western Massachusetts have more than 6.5 inches already on the ground.

The National Weather Service says the Northeast's heaviest snow accumulations will be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states.

    It would be better to have a All The Above on this one. We all have family and business relations that were effected directly by the storms, thus effecting ALL of us indirectly.

    Not much rainstorm in Kansas that I saw. All that harsh weather went eastward. It was really nasty for those people. It would have been fun to ride out a storm like that, eh?

    I live in Eastern NC, and we have had some rain so far, and it's supposed to rain the next couple of days. We were very fortunate. Christmas day we had our windows open. I love living near the beach but my Granddaughter was sure not liking it when there was no snow for Santa, LOL

    Not really; we had some very strong wind and it got much colder than it would normally be in the Atlanta area. We get some good ones but they are usually show up between late January and mid March. I have a feeling this winter is going to be a rough one.

    I was up in Illinois visiting family and we had to drive to Indiana before we went home but we got delayed because of blizzards. Then today we were driving home from Missouri and it was nothing but snow and rain. Bad day...

    Yes, I remember the Blizzard of '98 when I was in that vicinity and had to stay overnight at the Holiday Inn in South Bend IN. Everyone staying was frozen-in ... with 42" of snowfall in three days. But the comraderie was amazing and we were enjoying it. The hotel gave away food a drink and whatever would help folks survive. At least we had electricity and all utilities. I met up with two girls there and we exchanged bed partners for the two nights. It was a time to remember.

    Storms are really not a problem where I live, any time.



    Never gave it a lot of thought, but it seems bad storms always hit the same places and you hear of them often, where all is peaceful you never hear reported in the news.

    Maybe we have a geographic silent majority, stormwise?

    In '70's I lived in Texas, and we got the most god awful rains. Rained so hard it flooded the windscreen like being under a waterfall, wipers were useless. We had to slow to about 5 mph, and put our head outside the side window and use the highway center stripe as our guide.

    You know when weather really stank was during the 15th through 17th centuries here in America. The American people then really had it hard, sometimes summers were so short the winter snow never melted from the fields before the next winter closed in. Of course back THEN All of America fitted into whats called New England today.
    It seems like it began to get better, warmer around 170 years ago.

    Oh yeah! You should've seen the weather in 1776 when I was in what is now North Dakota. Now I am in Kansas where we have blueskies much of the time.
  • Alacrity Blueskys 2013/01/02 15:13:51

    Indeed, I have seen rain like that in Indiana where I have lived 20 years . And again in Kansas where I have lived 10 years. The wipers are overcome with the downfall and some drivers actually went off the road, or had collisions.
    Texas is not the only place on the map. lol

    We got 6 inches on the 26th and I, like a good nieghbor cleaned my neighbors drives (5 of them) and a route for the mailman because I care and have the equipment. My neighbor have various health problems so I help when I can and don't take anything for doing so. Charity begins at home and more neighbors should be real neighbors to help others.

    Praise to you for doing the right thing--so often. I give you prayers for your survival.
