Hope CT and the other northerners did OK with Nemo. We only got about 6" here. I took a pic out my front bay window of the Brocktoon-mobile and front yard before I headed out.



They already had the street plowed and it wasn't too bad digging out this morning. New England looks to be a mess though
Ct was hit really bad, I have about 20-24" at my house, there was up to 36" in certain towns in the state. There is a travel ban in the state until 4pm, but I am planning staying put until Monday am. 40,000 are without power, we lost power this afternoon for about two hours but got it back ,which is a huge relief since it is suppose to get down to 8 degrees to night. At my house no power means no heat or water.

Hang in there It's sort of supposed to warm a bit after the freezer you're dealing with overnight.

So the Weather Channel is going with Winter Storm ORKO for the next on-deck ... seriously ... ORKO!! Yes I was able to track down that Orko was also a Basque thunder god, but ask any child of the 80's who Orko is???

I already predict SNL will be all over this one for tonight's Weekly Update

Thanks, we were nice and warm last night. It is suppose to be almost 40 today, not exactly bikini weather but at least it will be sunny, this is the weekend that we usually go to Cancun, this year we skipped it since we are going to Europe in a few weeks. Erik and I are planning which warm weather location we can move.

OK, guess I am a child of the 70's. Who is Orko?

All dug out from the storm, there was over a foot in my driveway. My 300 foot driveway. Glad I had a snowblower, but the rain before it turned to snow made the bottom two to three inches real heavy. Snow day tomorrow, just found out work has been cancelled for tomorrow.

Yeah, the people in CT got hammered!

I was thinking the same thing about moving Florida as I was clearing the 15inches from my driveway.

Orko is a bumbling little floaty wizard sidekick in the He-Man cartoons. He was in the cartoon basically as comic relief. Most of the big 80s cartoons seemed to have something similar ... Ghostbusters had Slimer, Thundercats had Snarf ... Actually I kinda like the idea of Winter Storm Snarf!

There are more interesting names around the bend...can't wait for some of references people will make about "Q", "Rocky", and "Yogi"
