One of the models carries the 2-3 feet of snow into NYC... the other cuts it off sharply and they only get like 8"

One of the models moved the 3-4 feet from NoVa into Central PA.

Very interesting to see how it plays out...!

Flight cancelled. But the next one, later in the day, still isn't cancelled? So maybe it's not because of weather, or only indirectly because people are dropping travel plans in general so they didn't have enough to fill the flight anymore?

The point is, we're on the later flight now, and the guy at the reservation desk couldn't give me any kind of information about why the first flight was cancelled, only that the second one was still good, even though the storm is supposed to hit later, not earlier.

Everyone think warm, melty thoughts toward JFK airport, please. I don't know if I'm going to be able to sleep tonight...

No sense losing sleep over shit you have no control over. You can't even drop everything and drive at this point. I wouldn't hire a private plane, either, it didn't work out for Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Besides, if you do get there, you're so wound up you'd probably pee yourself.

The new generator was installed a few weeks ago and a remote controller was installed last week. I had to run out last night for two bags of sand because I found out that the air intake does not handle snow well and wanted to prop sometimes against the enclosure to keep off any drifts. The air intake faces east and the winds will be coming from N and NE. Fortunately, our row of houses is 5 feet North of the generator and will provide a windbreak. When it gets light I will go out and clear off the snow.

We have not experienced a power failure yet but with gusts up to 50mph, it's a real possibility.

Gusts up to 50? Pshaw! We don't get excited about any gusts under 60 ...

So far here it is cold enough that the snow is a dry snow and there is enough wind that no snow is settling on tree limbs or wires. It's the heavily laden branches in the wind that cause outages. We should be ok. Even with the wind.
