Blizzard check-in

I am hoping they got it wrong and we won't get 2 feet of snow. So far we have about 2-3 inches.

Last night it was going to be a guaranteed SNOWMAGEDDON!!! 18" to 2' in my area. By noon today the weather people started backing off somewhat. They continued to hype the hell out of it, but forecasted snowfall totals have been decreasing throughout the day. At 11pm they said I'm in the 6" to 10" range.

So far, after midnight, maybe an inch....the winds have died down. The man who won't be our next president has banned all driving in the state, so I'm off from work on Tuesday. I'll be surprised if there's more than 4 inches on the ground when I wake up.

Other areas may still get slammed, but it looks like 2015's storm of the millennium is gonna be a bust here.

Central NH here and we only have a dusting to an inch right now. According to our news we're still in the 10-18 band.

In my part of CT we were originally in the 22-30" band now it's downgraded to probably tops at 18-24" depending on the news station. The winds are not as bad as predicted so far either. We live on top of a hill and we generally have stronger winds than others and so far it doesn't seem too bad. Still doubt we'll be going anywhere until Wednesday though.

The storm completely missed Eastern PA. We were expecting 9 - 14 inches as of yesterday afternoon.

We got nothing. Seriously. I mean, there was the clipper that came by yesterday morning that dropped 2 1/2 inches, but that was a different storm.
