Seriously?? (Nemo)

First Hurricane Sandy. Now Winter Storm Nemo - expecting 18 inches of snow or so up here...already coming down steady, lasting through tomorrow morning.

God must be REALLY mad at New Jersey. This STINKS!!!

that is what I was wondering.

18 inches of snow in a short time period...wow, that would suck.

I had the same question. And Nemo? I know I'm not the only one thinking of the cute little clownfish with the lucky fin instead of the dread Captain of the Nautilus.

Just this year. Winter storm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Weather Channel is doing it, but the National Weather Service has flat out refused to follow. I heard about the first storm, something that started with A, but Nemo is the next name I have heard...

I feel for you guys in New Jersey but trust me you aren't the only ones... We're suppose to get hammered up in here in CT especially where I am. They're calling for 24"+ in my area over the next 16 hours. They keep using words like "Historic" "Epic" "Perfect Storm". It's coming down now but not piling up quick, the worst is suppose to be from 6pm until 10am tomorrow when we will have Blizzard conditions. Lucky me I get to work from 6pm tonight until, well whenever tomorrow... Good luck to all my fellow New Englanders especially those of us in the Blizzard conditions area!

Well it's over here in western NJ and we were spared the worst, it turned out the Nor'Easter stayed pretty coastal and the cold front went north of us. We got about 10" but Connecticut is getting HAMMERED --- I hear this morning in some areas they have 34" and it's STILL snowing.... SO SORRY for you, CTMedic!! Hope you're doing ok!!

So happy to finally have power back What a wild night- we had gusts clocked up to 83mph We have somewhere in the neighborhood of 15" or so, but before the big snow came, we received a good layer of ice, making shoveling a royal PITA.

I was up for a good chunk of the night (in the dark) with a baby going through a growth spurt and eating every.single.hour- it was definitely wild out there. Very thankful to have propane heat and plenty of food and water...our biggest danger was running out of cloth diapers. Babies are poop factories

I'm guessing John (Ranger) is probably w/o power- they got hit hard, too. Hope he and Cheryl are staying warm (and everyone else who got slammed).

I can't even begin to describe the scene here in North Central Connecticut. I came into work at 6pm last night and I'm still here until at least 6am tomorrow. My ambulance was unable to make it to multiple calls through out last night and today. In our area we easily have 36" plus with snow drifts even higher. We're up to at least 5 confirmed storm related deaths with the number easily rising. The amount of snow that fell overnight is surreal.
