BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES ! Blizzard Stella on her way!

18 Inches of Snow Could Hit NYC

Meteorologists have issued warnings to New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts in advance of a winter storm that could carry as much as 18 to 24 inches of snow in some places, along with wind gusts as high as 50 mph. A blizzard watch was issued for New York City from Monday night through Tuesday evening. “We’re preparing for a significant storm on Tuesday, and New Yorkers should also prepare for snow and dangerous road conditions,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. He asked that residents help keep roads clear by avoiding unnecessary travel. The heaviest snowfall, forecasters say, is expected Tuesday morning, with a potential rate of 2 to 4 inches per hour. Meteorologist Eric Holthaus said the forecast comes within an inch of the biggest March snowstorm in New York history, which dumped 21 inches of snow in Central Park.

Yes, we're getting messages (phone and email) from authorities, both municipal and building management agencies, that this is going to be a whooper!

I only hope we're not going to lose power, not with sub-freezing temperatures. Brrrr...

This Week’s Blizzard Will Be One of the Biggest on Record
Meteorologists are running out of words to describe the late-season snowstorm expected to bring more than a foot of snow and winds stronger than a tropical storm.
Eric Holthaus

Editor's Note: This story has been updated with new forecast information.

It’s been a tough winter for snow lovers. From Chicago to New England, February was actually hot in many parts of country. Daffodils and flowering trees have been blooming for weeks. So far in 2017, it’s been in the 60s or 70s as often as it’s snowed in New York City.

That’s all about to change this week.

One of the biggest March snowstorms on record appears poised to strike the East Coast on Monday night, packing strong winds and snow drifts measured in feet. It’s as if Mother Nature decided to make up for lost time and pack an entire season’s worth of winter into a single day.

Or the mouse that roared...

It wasn't a blizzard, just a very heavy snowfall. Very windy, though. I took some photos, but the wind had swept all the snow from the trees, so it wasn't as pretty as other snowfalls we've had recently.

For once, Trump, who said it wouldn't be so bad, was right. I guess that's the exception that confirms the rule! bleh
