    Weather Northeast Blizzard watch Jan 26/27 ?

    Well, the Weather channel is trying to scare the heck out of people again.

    That being said..........do you live in the area?
    Do you have a plan?

    Are you heading to the grocery store to load up on essentials ?

    Good luck all........and I will not complain about the 60 degree temps here in W Central Fla.

    With 16-24 forecast for south of Boston..... I really think I need to clear the driveway from yesterday's 3-4 inches so I can use the snow blower for this storm.

    Maybe I will go to the market and fight over the last loaf of bread...!!!

    Boy do I miss Aruba with this storm coming.

    Anyone flying to Aruba early this week from the Boston/Providence/Hartford area...... I wish you really good luck with your flights......

    Already went out for groceries and stocked up on munchies. Picked up some more ice melt as well. Tom had 3 appointments scheduled for Tuesday at MGH so I'll be calling tomorrow to reschedule. Dont't think they can expect us to try and make it there with 2 feet of snow predicted. Local forecasters are telling us to get out and pick up essentials as storm could be of historic proportions. So yes really would rather be in Aruba. My SIL and BIL are there now for 3 weeks. So very jealous!!

    We live in NJ. All I cared about was gas for the snow blower and generator. As far as everyone running to the food store, don't people have stuff in their house. I think the max I could not go anywhere was two or three days. I certainly have enough food for that. If it was a hurricane, that would be different.

    We live in S. Jersey and we did are normal food shopping that we do every weekend (fresh fruits and vegs) etc. Knock on wood, but we hardly ever lose power and if we do its only for 2 hrs, 1x is was for a good 12hrs. No generator, I should look into getting one, just in case. I would love one of those auto ones that power the whole house automatically, that would we nice.

    I am a crazy planner, so I have been spending time on a off researching/emailing auto rental places to find the best deal. Yes, I am a bit crazy, but checking out rentals in Aruba is fun. Not like being there, but I kinda enjoy it.

    in 1978 (blizzard) i was snowed in at our ski club in jackson nh.
    all that was in the lodge for supplies was molsons, scotch and bread. ( i was the molson drinker)
    during the storm, using cross country skis we skied down to the village center, bought chips, coffee, milk and toilet paper.
    toilet paper was top of our list.

    ahh the good old days

    Gas for the grill.......
    that is one thing that folks tend to forget.
    in the event of power failure, the grill will be ready to cook!

    my big concern would be in the event of no power how would i make my coffee???
