Are you one of those lucky (or unlucky) people who are snowed in on the East Coast? If so, what are you doing for your Snow Day?

I was told not to come in today because of the horrendous snow that we'd surely be getting. There's about a half inch on the ground right now, and that's only as of the past half hour. Haha.

Yay for unnecessary snow days!!!!!

I'll be spending my day being a complete and total bum. Highlights include:
     -Walking around the house in pajamas
     -Spending too much time on MM forums
     -Petting my cats
     -Walking around in pajamas some more
     -Pretending I plan to shovel at some point (if it snows more), but never doing it
     -Naps. Lots of naps.

To top it off...maybe make some hot chocolate with some real marshmallows.

I took the day off from work anyways.  Not because of the weather - I had a gig planned that didn't pan out, but decided to keep the day off anyways.

It's real pretty out there!

I'm stuck inside (my favorite park is closed, unable to go out and take pics) and our stupid governor just signed an order banning vehicles on the road after 4pm. Right now, we've got less than 1/8 inch on the ground, with not much else happening.

You should make a connection with a newspaper so you can get a honest/legitimate press pass, and that probably would permit you to be out during such "disasters" wink

Sounds about right, when it is forcast it rarely pans out, this last Christmas was supposed to get a dusting of maybe an inch or two, which in itself would have been amazing, ended up with 18" of the white stuff, does not seem like much to the east coast wink but down here it was epic  lol

I'm depressed about it, because transit and driving have been shut down all over Massachusetts.  Couldn't get to work if I needed to, but what's worse...I work for artists (every Saturday and Sunday), and schools.  I may not have income for a week!

So, to combat the financial blues, I scoured my cupboards and made...VEGAN CUPCAKES!!

I've never made frosting before.  It's icing, instead.  Not the prettiest, but...OH, so delicious.

Please tell that to the lovely people of New York City. On the radio this morning they were losing their shit over 10cms.

Apparently there were lines at gas stations and stuff. Like, clam your tits.

It's just snow. 10cms isn't even that much.

Shoveling. 

We've shoveled 4 times so far today.  It's a lot easier to take care of 1 inch at a time than 4 or 8 or 19.

They have to freak out to convince as many people as possible not to go out unnecessarily where they will get into accidents and put first responders at risk, costing the rest of us taxpayers money.

We've had no snow here in Seattle this year, and it look unlikely that we will. I call that a damned shame.

With drizzly, no-sun days topping out at 40F, I'm thinking I need to spend most of the second half of this month... elsewhere. I'm thinking Hawaii.

We'll see what happens over night. It flurried this morning until about noon resulting in only a ground covering. Started snowing again about 2pm

Overnight we're supposed to get 4-8 inches . I'm not sure what happened to the 600 inches we were supposed to get but the current forecast here is 4-8 inches

Got take a cake pan and fill it with packed snow.

Put some maple syrup on the stove and bring it to at least the soft ball stage.

Drizzle it on the snow so it cools.

Homemade maple syrup candy for the tikes.

as a now new yorker via Chicago, the snow isn't the issue; it's the flooding and high tides that come with this storm. as a sandy survivor, Sandy didn't produce actual rain, but because most of new York is an island, when the ocean tides rise they rise a lot and flood everything. they stop transit and shut everything down. i almost went a month without lights, so before you say "it's just " this and that please consider the other elements That can cause a storm. we are still crippled from sandy. my friend that lives in the rockaways just got heat and lights last week.

I live on Long Island & it's a mess already. We are expected out here to get about 2 feet of snow. Joyous.

I'm from Michigan where it's normal to get several feet of snow a day. This feels normal to me. but this flooding shit, can go away. I live like 5 blocks from the beach. We didn't deal with flooding from Sandy but I have no idea what could happen this time around. Especially since the barriers were destroyed during the hurricane.

Yeah so I have an update. I just went out to clean off the cars. We've got about 4" now. Snowing like hell. Small icy things falling from the sky. We're going to get a fair amount of accumulation

Parts of upstate NY & CT already have 3 feet of snow, and the storm isnt over.

Looks like NYC got about 8".

Well, here in Central Pennsylvania, we are below the storm, so it's a clear day, but cold and windy.

But I can't be too careful or prepare too much... so it's pizza, beer, writing, and Marx Brothers movies. How's that for a plan?
