Here in Erie, we call that a "regular snow storm". Glad it will mostly miss us for a change! I do hope that anyone within this storms effected area will be careful, smart and safe. Take Nicks advice about being prepared seriously. Blankets and warm clothes, flashlights and candles, firewood and wine, turn your headlights on, and don't drive if you don't need to.
And Nick, I just about lost it at your "we should sacrifice the groundhog" comment. For some reason I find that really amusing. I can't help but to picture Bill Murray with a sacrificial dagger stabbing Punxsutawney Phil.
