    My Name Is Jonas (Blizzard Related)

    WINTER STORM JONAS!!!

    http://www.weather.com/news/weather/...-a-lot-of-snow



    Looks to be a pretty nasty storm for the mid-Atlantic. 3 feet possible in places. I love a good blizzard shitshow and this one has all the signs of delivering. Iceman, Tipp, have you gone out and pre-looted the store for your milk, eggs, and bread?

    Why is it every time a storm comes everyone has to get those three things? Is french toast a big thing to eat when you're snowed in? Just get some bourbon and a carton of smokes.

    Looking forward to seeing the carnage!

    People should always keep bourbon and smokes (or what ever version one prefers) in their emergency kit. In fact, that is all you need in the kit.

    These storms nearly always disappoint. It's the ones they don't say are a big deal that bite you in the ass. I hope to see Tipp on CNN cross country skiing down a DC street. Why do they always show somebody x-c skiing after these storms?

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Good luck "boogying" anywhere. Snow is supposed to stop sometime on early Sunday Morning. This isn't the mountain West. We only have XX amount of plows. My kids will likely miss another 2 days of school - my call is Wed. the earliest.

    Oh, also there's almost no snow forecast N. of NYC. Shit, there's only supposed to be about 6 inches in PA.

    I went to get Chili fixins today. Nobody had New Mexico Peppers. The horror.

    Last night had to be one of the worst junk shows I've ever seen caused by 1" of snow. The whole DMV was basically a traffic jam. Such stupid planning - nobody did any pre-salting, it hadn't been over 25deg. in a week, so all the major arteries turned into black ice almost immediately.

    We had to go to a wake in DC last night and didn't leave for home until 9:00 and it still took almost 2 hours to get home. What a shitshow, no pretreatment at all. The roads were glaze ice in a lot of places, wrecks everywhere.

    Yeah I saw some images that were showing over 160 accidents between downtown DC and the Beltway at rush hour and vids of people getting their cars to the shoulder then getting out and walking away.

    Actually it's starting to look a little better for us north of I95 up here. I'm probably going to end up with a foot or so but by the time you get to any sort of decent ski regions they'll be able to smell it but will be getting virga at best. This most likely won't even make it to I90 until you get to the Boston metro. That leaves some of the feeder hills like my local and maybe that place in RI but nothing worth driving for especially the way these morons get when the roads are bad.

    They have snow up there? Enough for a whole week?

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    It's pretty much the only thing in my storm kit. I laughed my ass off at the other people at the grocery the other year when ATL got completely shut down during that snow and ice storm. Everyone was getting milk and bread and looking at me like I was a degenerate loading up on a case of beer and Woodford.

    CNN did show some guy ice skating down Peachtree St in front of the Fox Theatre though which was a different twist on the urban XC guy.

    I've skied rock creek park and battery kemball park on tele gear. I think we were filmed skinning across DuPont circle.

    Ricky D. will probably have the ski on his front hub if he doesn't make it out to Davis. The fat bike community is pretty strong in that area.

    It's times like these that people just need to band together and eat conventional.
