I've had two Franzillas in my lifetime, January 1996 with 34 inches and the snowicane of February 2010 35 inches. Technically just short of a Frankzilla but close enough.

Terrifying is not the term I would use either, Paradise, Utopia, Nirvana, Heaven, Euphoria, Bliss, exaltation. Even those words don't do a Frankzilla storm justice.

Let's face Spring will be here Wednesday my Birthday. It will not snow according to NWS they the Pros so I go with the Pros! Get those lawnmowers ready you will be using them before ya know it!

The potential for significant impacts from a coastal storm Monday
night through Wednesday night has decreased from previous forecasts.
However, given the uncertainty in the track of the storm 3 to 5 days
out, it is still too soon to dismiss the threat of heavy rain, wet
snow, strong winds and coastal flooding.
