Where we are, the effect of the ocean usually keeps the snow accumulation down, for the usual path of weather -- west to east. But this one's a "nor-easter" that kind of comes up the coast, and we tend to get dumped on.

Brrrr... too much cold talk here!! Today it's MINUS 6 F out!! Poor puppies, if they didn't poop all over the floor, I'd let them in, but that gets old quickly!

See what all your planning skills you learned here on the boards got you for your trip! Pays to plan!

Ooooo, that's cold. The only bad thing with it being warmer here is that this storm they predicting will be wet, heavy snow. I prefer the fluffy stuff. I've got a small snowblower that can't handle it when it's wet. Hopefully it'll be cold enough.

Looks like best case we're expecting 10 or 11 inches...Worst case, a foot and a half! At least it's the weekend and John will be in town. I have kind of a bad back and neck and shoveling isn't good for me. I do it if I have to but usually pay for it!

Does everybody have their bread, milk and toilet paper? I guess there's nothing to do now but sit back and see what happens .Everybody be safe and keep warm!

My back can't handle the shoveling either. I can do it, but then I pay for it for about a week.

Judy got milk for us last night, but only 1 gallon. I was like, "um, I would've gotten 2".

I'm going to finish up the 5Bucks report tonight. I'll edit my comments into here. I'm ready for the grand finale!

First off, I'm glad you started out with DHS. It's my least favorite park, and I would have wanted to end it with something really nice like AK. Just me though, I"m sure you had other reasons you did it that way.

Anyway, was totally cracking up at "James talking trash". Too funny!

I'll have to remember the single rider hint at TSM. I might "suggest" on the sly that maroo and LeeAnn go ahead and ride together- They have a lot of fun! (and I"ll smoke their pants off)

Nice HM work there on the cords in RnRC!! I found a few like that too, and was pretty stoked. I know, pretty geeky.

You were FiP holding maniacs! I"m loving how those VIP thingys worked.

Can I just be a little enquiring?? What is wrong with that tiger in your last picture?? He looks like he's been run over by a bus. Are they all that flat?

I may have another idea for a photo theme now. Fountains. Some of the theming around them is pretty cool!

Whooops! FANNY PACK PANIC!! Been there- done that. Know that gut sinking feeling. So glad she found it! Finding a new inhaler would have been a huge pain!

I don't remember why we went to DHS first, but I'm sure we had some reasoning.

James loves videogames and hates to lose. I haven't told him about Disney Quest yet.

There you go! Strategy right from the start.

Jenbear, if you're reading this, you still have to ride with Bubba. No unfair advantages for you.

That one pretty much jumped out at me.

Fastpass is one of the best Disney "innoventions" ever. The VIP ones were the bomb.

I had to go look at what you were talking about. He's laying in about 6-8" of water, so you've got a light refraction thing going on.

Oooo, that would be good. Now are you talking drinking fountains only, or also decorative ones? The theming at AK is especially good.

Yep, she was very worried. I was kinda surprised we hadn't lost something before that point.

And the snow begins! It's not sticking to the roads and sidewalks yet, but there is a coating on the grass already...

WE still have power. Can't speak for the rest of the Mid Atlantic! I just walked the dog and had to shovela path for him. He's a French Bulldog puppy and kind of short! The snow is up to my kneesish...over 20" I'd venture!

Wow!! I just saw on BBC a headline that read "Blizzard Paralyzed US East Coast". I'll go read it now. Sounds like a few days off school maybe for the kiddos. Be warm and safe.
