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

Almost exactly a year after the opening of this thread...

East Coast Braces for ‘Life and Death’ Winter Storm
Nor'easter a 'life and death' situation with high winds for almost all of East Coast
Doyle Rice, USA TODAY

Residents along the East Coast on Thursday were warned to brace for a “life and death situation” ahead of a powerful winter storm expected to pummel the area with high winds, heavy rain, and snow over the weekend. The National Weather Service’s Boston branch urged residents to “take this storm seriously” on Twitter late Thursday, issuing a coastal flood warning that said homes are likely to be destroyed. Meteorologists have said the storm will wreak havoc from the Carolinas to Portland, Maine, throughout Friday and into Saturday. Some parts of New York are expected to get as much as 10 inches of snow, while other areas in the state and along the coast are likely to see up to 4 inches of rain. The dire forecasts prompted numerous weather advisories, with the governors of New York and Massachusetts taking emergency precautions. Kim Buttrick, a Weather Service meteorologist out of Massachusetts, told The New York Times the storm has “the markings of setting records” and could ultimately “change the topography of coastal communities.”

There had been warnings up and down the Coast and across the US, but we didn't realize it would be this bad. UnMask and I were even going to go out - we were supposed to have lunch but he got stuck in the studio, so moved it to dinner. It was so bad out by then, violent winds, snow and sleet mixed with rain (when it rained, it was torrential), that I suggested he pick some take-out and we'd have dinner at my home. But he had to go back to his, what with trees and wires down... You can't fight Mother Nature Sad - (or climate change!!! wink )

What with the photos of the Riviera under snow, some photos of this storm here should make for a nice new photo banner... It'll keep me busy. Let's hope we don't lose power!


Winter Storm Riley Path: Deadly Nor'Easter ‘Weather Bomb’ Smashes Into East Coast
By Shane Croucher On 3/2/18 at 10:23 AM

Winter Storm Riley is wreaking destructive havoc as the nor’easter smashes into affected areas—home to tens of millions of Americans—bringing with it high-speed winds, flooding and heavy snow.

The storm system’s pressure is dropping so low, in a process called “bombogenesis,” that it is becoming a so-called “weather bomb.”

And worse is yet to come, according to experts. The National Weather Service station for the Boston area urged residents to “take this storm seriously.” “This is a LIFE & DEATH situation for those living along the coast, esp those ocean-exposed shorelines,” it tweeted.

Friday morning, at least 400,000 homes were without power from Michigan down to North Carolina, reported Weather.com. Homes along the coast were being boarded up by their owners. Flights are being canceled. At New York City area airports alone, LaGuardia canceled 400 flights, Newark 260 and JFK 250.

Waouh!! The photos are impressive! I hope you won't lose power, Wildflower.

Over here, panic at Geneva Airport, which closed yesterday because of heavy snowfall, very rare on the plains...

At Least Five Killed as Nor’easter Downs Trees on East Coast

A brutal winter storm that tore through much of the East Coast on Friday has led to at least five deaths as high winds brought trees down on cars and homes. Two children were among the victims, with an 11-year-old boy killed in Putnam Valley, New York when a tree fell on his home, and a 6-year-old crushed by a falling tree while he was sleeping in his bed in Chester, Virginia. Similar incidents were reported in Rhode Island and Maryland, with a 72-year-old man and a 77-year-old woman killed by falling trees in separate incidents. A 44-year-old man was also killed in James City County, Virginia when a tree fell on his car, authorities said. The storm, which caused massive flooding along much of the coast, also left more than two million people without power.
