Any other East Coasters gearing up for the snow storm?

Well, here I am guarded with hot chocolate and a shovel. We are expecting anywhere between 6-14 inches of snow by tomorrow night. I am anxiously awaiting a phone call letting me know that we have a snow day tomorrow. Anybody else out there just waiting for it to begin?

Another from MA here. Went Food Shopping this afternoon and it was a zoo. My husband is a teacher and he is wondering if school will be cancelled.

We are expecting six - ten inches of heavy snow overnight and through Monday. Followed by ice.

My partner works at college, he is pretty sure school will be closed.

I work at a municipal library in a town that never closes, so I will be making my way through the snow. And we will get all the kids that aren't in school in to use the computers!

We're in MD - it could go either way for us. We could get nothing or we could get 6 inches. The girls would love to have the day off school tomorrow and do some sledding!

We are exspecting 7 - 17 inches depending upon the freeze line. That is one heck of a spread. I am done work for the weekend and can stay home in my jammies!! Whooo Hooo for once I dont have to drag my kid out in the storm.

Waiting here in PA as well. I hope we get a ton or none! I hate those little storms where you are not stuck in and have to goout anyway after shoveling and clearing the cars. DD wants another day off from preschool!

Yup, waiting on the 10-15" promised by the crack weather team. I dropped my fiancee off with friends and bought them a hotel room for the night since they have their last exam tomorrow before they start clinical rotations. This way they're 3 miles instead of 30 miles away.

I, on the other hand, will be getting up freakishly early tomorrow morning (I didn't know there was a 4AM) to beat the commuting disaster (54mi to work). I don't bother to call the plant closure line anymore. They never do cancel. Why even think it's possible...

Happy shoveling,
