Winter Storm ‘Pax’ has already crippled much of the South, snarling traffic and dumping more snow than most can remember on places that are unarguably ill-prepared to cope. But, as The Weather Channel warns, up to 18 more inches of snow is forecast for the Northeast as Pax pushes up the East Coast. With no thaw expected in the South until at least the weekend (and freezing winds causing havoc), forecasters expect more power outages. Trouble has already started though further North with DC over 13 inches of snow and NYC having over 7 inches this morning alone. It’s not everyday that snow is falling in Atlanta and Boston at the same time! 585,000 households are without power in 7 states this morning. Flight cancellations have begun from DC to NYC building on the 4,000 that were cancelled yesterday.

The picture above says it all.  Lord chaos reigns in the south and old man winter in the north.  I am currently getting a steady heavy downfall of snow where I live. I’m the kind of person who wants to get alot of snow just because so I’m a little disappointed in this storm but ever since the blizzard of 1993 I have been disappointed with every winter storm.  That’s alright, spring is near, sort of.

    There are over 114,800,000 households in the US. Let me know when the number without power reaches 50,000,000 and then I might be concerned.

    Would appreciate it if you don’t use mainstream weather channel’s names on this site. This isn’t for mainstream. It’s a Nor’easter, call it that.

    At least you didn’t HEADLINE about an earthquake we never had in SC and then disable comments like SOME people.
