A state-by-state look
at the Northeast blizzard

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/9/2013 4:40:26 AM

A look at effects in states and provinces in the path of the storm sweeping across the Northeast and southern Canada: --- CONNECTICUT Gov. Dannel P. Malloy imposed a travel ban Friday on the state´s highways and deployed National Guard troops around the state for rescues or other emergencies. A coastal flood warning was posted for southern Fairfield County, saying Friday evening´s high tide could be 3 to 5 feet higher than normal in western Long Island Sound. The state´s two biggest utilities planned for the possibility that up to 30 percent of their customers -

I´m curious. How did the victims of Sandy make out? Looking out my window, here in MA, I can´t imagine living in a tent during this. God help them.

There is an awful lot of global warming out there waiting to be shoveled. Must get caught up on all the articles posted on Lucianne since I went to sleep, before I go out to shovel. Up here in Ringwood New Jersey we have about a foot of snow.

Another big yawn of a storm.

Although power outages are annoying (that 17.5Kw generac is pretty loud) weather is not a big issue. Put the weather channel folks in with the MSM. Never let a crisis go to waste.

I could tell this "storm" would be a "bust" in my area when the hyperventilating New Jersey "media" stopped updating the progress of the storm sometime around noon yesterday. Every time they do that I know the orgy´s over.

Everything got cancelled for the entire weekend in my area. We got 5" of snow. I already cleared my driveway and the roads are cleared as well.

Yeah, it´s a good opportunity for government sheep practice. Close the schools the day BeFoRe the storm. This panic rehearsal is good for people who don´t like to waste a good crisis.

Same thoughts as #1. How are the Hurricane Sandy victims doing? Have they had any heat or electricity, either before or during the storm? If the president were a Republican, the TV camera crew would be camped out (figuratively speaking, of course, in their well-heated vans, leaving only to get their face on TV) in lower Manhattan, on Staten Island, and in the Rockaways, showing a mass of victims and bemoaning the incompetent in the White House and the lack of compassion from the NY governor.

When wildfires were burning across Texas and other states(many started by illegals on Federal Land) No disaster declaration was allowed..even after WEEKS. This is Snow ...it eventually melts by itself, stay home for a day or two and let the roads get cleared, shovel your walk and drive, help your neighbor do theirs.

About 2 feet of snow and much higher in the drifts, here in the foothills of the Berkshires in NW CT. Thankfully, we never lost power. We did have the generator and plenty of gasoline at the ready though, just in case. Bought it at least a decade ago and having the peace of mind that comes with owning a generator...it´s the best $$$ we ever spent. But, we believe in being prepared and self-sufficient. That´s cuz we´s ants, not grasshoppers. Prayers for Sandy folks still without their homes; yet another reason why you NEVER trust our goobermint. For anything. Ever.

The whole of the United States revolves around the eastern seaboard , don´t you know . An earthquake could turn Denver to rubble and it´d get some press coverage , but whoa , a snowstorm on Boston and stop the presses ! . # 12 is correct . Remember the tornado that removed Mobile Alabama ? . Didn´t hear about that , eh ?. Go away Mass. and stay there .

The Weather Channel has lost the plot, from silly naming of storms to ´Storm Impact Ratings´ which are meaningless from the off since they never explain what 1 and 10 on the scale might be. Still, that doesn´t keep them from slapping a big rating of 10/10 up there for the panic factor.

From the army of redundant experts in the studio to the ludicrous field reports where snow accumulation takes long hours and therefore lacks drama until after the fact, you know someone is just itching to dispense with the preliminaries, jump up on a desk and scream WE´RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

The Weather Channel used to be my go-to channel. But somewhere along the way they have expanded into a ‘scare-channel’ where there is either ha-ha merriment or disasters around every corner.
I’ve tired of watching some ‘weatherperson’ dressed up in storm gear standing in a gale force wind holding onto their hat and screaming into a microphone. I just catch the ´radar on the 8’ and move on.

#15, sorry to disappoint you, but yes, we here in Mass. did hear about the tornadoes, and the wildfires, and we sent money and people to help.

There´s over two feet of snow. It´s okay. We have power. We have shovels. We have plows. We´ll manage. And the next time you need help, we´ll send what we can.

About 2 years ago, in the Midwest, we had over 2 feet of snow. A snow plowing truck had to come to get my husband, a doc, who had to get to the hospital to relieve those who had stayed there through the storm. Snowstorms are a pain but if you have food, shelter and warmth, then you have everything and pray for those who don´t.

I haven´t figured yet on why every storm is the "worst storm of the century". Is it because they hire the lowest IQ folks at the weather channel? You would think they would have IQ´s high enough to realize that most people are not impressed with the "egotistical look at me Mom" standing out in a Hurricane, Snow storm, or waste deep in a flood.

It´s also hard to have much sympathy for those who get on the roads and stranded when they know the snow/ice/hurricane storms are coming. I heard one report that people were on their way home from work when the storm hit and they were stranded. Well, they had days of notice, why didn´t their bosses let them leave long before the storm hit instead of when it was due to hit?

Truthfully it´s the low income WORKING people I have empathy for. They don´t have the money to buy generators, or have heat,or enough supplies to get through a few days of isolation.

Finally, it pays to plan ahe

For those who do not know. The Weather Channel was sold in 2008 to NBCUniversal. They subsequently disemployed ( must be a liberal term ) most/all of their long time employees and hired those from a unit that belonged to the parent company. Now they present half weather, half reality shows, and all hype and hysteria. For those old enough to remember, we used to get much more severe
winter weather and it was not the end of the
World. There are far more pieces of equipment now than in the past, municipal and private,
including generators in case the power goes out. So to end the Weather Channel is actually no longer just the Weather channel, it´s a NBC product and you know what that means.

I grew up on the MA North Shore in the ´60s. S "Blizzard" like this was no big deal. A storm would drop 12-18 inches of snow,we´d get a day off from school to dig out, build a snow fort, climb sled hill a few times, then back to daily life. If the power went out we´d light some candles, put a log in the fireplace, cook on the Coleman stove, and listen to the news on WBZ radio.

This reminds me of an effort by a group of Congress critters right after the end of the Cold War. They were bound and determined to send financial aid to Russia. Why? Because they get snow in Russia, lots and lots of it, and they need our help to deal with it now that they have lost the Cold War. Like somehow none of the plows and shovels would work anymore.

Does anyone else remember that?

I´m with #32 and #22. Those of us with sense in MA (and there are plenty) remember all the storms that were just as large as this one - in fact as recently as 2003, and I happen to remember myself, 1999. This is a normal event here (I have about 2 feet of snow) and just takes planning and some work to deal with.

I actually moved to a different house partially to make snow removal easier. I kept my power this time and have only one thing to worry about - a big job of clearing my low roofs to prevent ice dams - had them once, don´t want ´em again, gotta use a roof rake. This is no fun with shoulder arthritis but it has to be done.

Also most of my friends, moonbats included, make loads of fun of the hyperventilating media around here and the idiot governor who thinks he is a tinpot dictator. And there´s a lot of great humor too. Search YouTube for "Bread and Milk" - great video!

We´ve become a nation of pansies.

It´s winter! we get snow, every year, it snows. Once in a while we get big snow, other times we don´t.

So many people are just weak minded sheep who need to be told what to do instead of thinking for themselves.

That´s what happens when the Gov´t does the thinking for its citizens. Liberalism has succeeded in destroying the human spirit and ruggedness.

Shoveled the deck and front walkway this morning. Some of the drifts were shoulder height. Driveway was plowed last night, but you would never know it. Am taking a shoveling break before clearing mailbox area and digging my child´s car out of its hole!
Wonder if anyone has gone into labor and can´t get out of their front door much less the driveway???

Well, folks, I live 7 miles north of Portland, ME and got at least 2 1/2ft of snow. The powerful winds blew snow and blocked every exit of my house. Some of the drifts are six feet high and other places in my yard, are bare ground. We didn´t lose power and my house is warm, got lots of food and a good dog, who isn´t complaining when I had to open the garage door, shovel about 3 ft. of snow away, walk in 2 ft. drifts to find him a place to relieve himself. Never a complaint! Hey, media, it´s winter, it´s Maine we are not Massachusetts therefore, they don´t care!!

I live in Virginia and in February of 2010 we had two storms in one week which dropped a total of almost 60 inches of snow on us. Unlike New England, we aren´t used to that kind of snowfall so we were snowed in for 8 days. We got our driveway plowed after 4 days but the DOT didn´t get our road plowed for another 4. We fired up the wood stove and spent a lot of quality time together as a family. Don´t remember the media going nuts about it.

Waterville ME here. Same thing, I don´t understand the big deal myself. I made sure there is gas for the blower, tobacco for my pipe, and food and heat for my girls, looking forward to a day of doing nothing. Once its blows over I will go out and clear the driveway and wave to my neighbors doing the same thing you,me and every other Mainer does after every snow storm.

In Houghton Michigan their highest snowfall was 355.9 inches. Now THAT is a lot of snow. Do they complain about it, does the media report it? NO. They just live their lives and deal with it.
Where we live the kids have had 4 days off from school in the past 2 weeks due to snow... Does the weather channel dwell or tell us how to survive the snow? NO, we just deal with it.
When I see the news and they are reporting on the cars getting stuck and the inability to drive in 4 inches of snow it´s a joke.

Agree with everyone above about the hype, except in NE. Two feet+ is a LOT of snow at once, even in Maine.

Here in NYC we got about 8" and it stopped by 8am, no big deal; my brother in southern Bergen County NJ got about a foot. What was very hazardous yesterday, and why it was smart to put an early end to Friday was how the storm turned from rain to freezing rain to wet snow about 3-4pm into the evening. All dug out till the next one!

Apologies to all the L-Dotter hold-outs in NY, CN and MA, but the overwhelming vote for Obama in the November elections makes me think the Northeast deserves every bit of misery they get.
But again, that´s holding nothing against you unfortunates who live amongst that sea of lemmings.
Best of luck to you and may your Obama-voting neighbors get stuck in a permanent snow bank.

Here on Long Island we had about 18 inches (though others had nearly 3 feet), and spent the day shoveling out the driveway and front walk. The rest can wait until it melts.

We had power, and that´s all that matters.

New grand jury expected to be seated

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
