The powerful Gulf Low that brought flooding rains to Georgia, South Carolina, and severe and life threatening flooding, (12 to 18 inches) from Hollywood, Florida to Miami has redeveloped along the Carolinas. This new massive Atlantic storm will continue to strengthen today and bring dangerous heavy snow and even white-out conditions from the Virginias to Washington, DC to Philadelphia to New York City to Southern New England.
A large swath of historic and dangerous December snows of 10 to 15 inches will bury many of the major cities in the Mid-Atlantic to Northeast.
The heaviest snows are forecast for northern Virginia including Washington, DC to Baltimore and Philadelphia where one to two feet of snow is possible.
Just laugh at me now all those who doubted my emergency prepardness nesting intinct. When they start using words like 'massive', 'historic', 'crippling', and 'dangerous' to describe a lil ol' snowstorm, you probably better start thinking about hunkering down. Unfortunately, I will have to hunker at work both nights of the storm. That means plenty of shoveling for me and making sure that the cell phone is charged for my trip into work and back home. Troll and the girls are safely ensconced at Mom-Mom's house. He may be pulling a couple of all-nighters at his job.
On the other hand, we may just end up with a dusting. They just don't know...
Right now it's a beautiful sight watching the snow come down through the security cameras at work. I just love snow!!
