Try going into profile settings and change the time zone, that's probably on mountain time for some reason

Woe be unto anyone who is out of eggs, bread or milk. There's not even a quorum on whether we're actually getting a storm and Shoprite is a madhouse.

I didn’t want to post this on the storm thread for fear of jinxing anything but with these short range hi-res model trends I’m starting to get deja vu of BDB.

I hear ya. I started to get a weird feeling earlier around 7:30 when I saw the precio breaking out over AK and TX pretty far south and west. Then the NAM was looking really good until it made a totally illogical jump east at the last minute which I’ve discounted as convective feedback. Then these short range models started looking good. I just feel like this COULD be one of those that sneaks up on everyone inside of 24 hours.

The best thing about the above, I get more snow than Red Sox Suck, if we're gonna get shafted let them crash and burn. Like I always say it doesn't count until it's on the ground.

Let's hope at least some areas see at least 6" of snow from this.

Totally meaningless Movie reference. If only Balboa threw the towel in Rocky 4 Apollo Creed would still be alive. Where i live in wayne nj I’m hoping for a surprise draw. Maybe a WSW with curent west trend. 6 is a victory.

Is anyone else bothered by the media seizing on this term "bomb cyclone" and describing this "bomb cyclone" as an unusual event? We all study weather here, and we all know (or most do) about bombogenesis. And we all know it is a term that dates back at least to the late 1970s early 1980s. And we also all know that a "cyclone" is simply a fancy way of saying, low pressure system or even storm. And we also all know that these coastal "bombs" happen not infrequently in the winter along the East Coast (albeit with varying degrees of strength.
The reason this bothers me is this. I had a couple people at work today asking me, very much concerned about the "bomb cyclone" that was coming, and what that means and how unusual it is. I feel like this is another attempt by the media to use terminology (and I won't address possible motives but I have a theory on a couple) to scare the public into thinking something -- unusual -- is happening with the weather. Something unprecedented or out of the ordinary. I think it misleads the public and causes them to be confused about what is really happening. Even if this storm is deeper or stronger than a typical coastal storm (i'm not sure it really is) that just makes it a strong storm -- not an unprecedented storm or unique entity. It reminds me of how a couple years ago the term "polar vortex" became commonplace to discuss winter cold outbreaks over north america. The same winter cold outbreaks that our continent has experienced for 100s of years. They described it like it was some unusual storm of cold air dropping in from Canada.
Maybe I'm over-reacting, but a lot of this rubs me the wrong way. Ok rant over, back to storm tracking.

Nope. Bill you are dead on with this. Media controls the country on all levels. Mooooo control the masses.

Since I now live in an apartment on the Upper East Side a corner away from an underground subway station, I no longer have an excuse to not go into work. And in Midtown (where I work), the snow doesn't accumulate on the roads Mad Mad Mad

You're right there to measure the snow in Central Park.

Before I finished reading the rest of it, I was going to mention the polar vortex name drop from a few years back.

Yeah that was one of the first times I noticed it. And if you do a google search right now for “bomb cyclone” it’s disturbing how many news stories pop up using that term.
