Well i'm going to check my snow blower tonight to make sure it works. If it does start up we'll get a dusting and you'll all have nothing to worry about. If i can't get it started, well hold on because we're gonna get a lot!
I'll keep you posted on how much snow you should expect.
The snow removal workers definitely need this..I'd be fine without it
It may fill up the lakes a little bit. What is the soil temperature down there? Any chance some of this melts in the next couple of weeks and soaks in? A little soil moisture would be a good thing, but if the ground is frozen it will just run off when it melts.

The high winds are going to make a lot of snow pile in ditches and behind tree strips and less will be out in open fields. Still will be good for some snow to end up in the fields but it would be better if there was no wind with this.
Love myself some snow storms in Dec, can't stand them in Jan. Feb. or March. Just don't care around Christmas time as long as I don't have to travel. Another 12 inches around Christmas? That may be a little much.
Both the Euro and GFS have been picking it up for awhile(several days at least). Not worth getting excited about the details at this point. Looking at the setup it wouldn't be hard for the storm to end up running up the Appalachians and being only a minor factor here. There is zero point in getting too worked up over a storm that far out. Let this storm pass and we can start focusing in on the next one.
