Default Who's stoked for the Nor'easter?

After being burned by the last predicted snowstorms it seems this one is a can't miss at least here in Philadelphia. 10-12 inches (insert dick jokes here) is the so called last call by the National Weather Service. Schools closed already. A snowed in day or two with the family sounds good to me. Bring it on!!

Yeah, not stoked at all. Although I'm sure here in VA we won't get dick anyway. Not like u up in Philly. I'm going to take a road trip to buy my next fourth gen this weekend so I really don't need any crap this weekend

I used to get all stoked for big snow storms when my life revolved around skiing. I am fine with it as its March and I live in Maine so it comes with the territory.

I heard a joke the other day went something like blizzard warning attention all southerners stock up on bread , milk , canned goods ,toilet paper etc.. northerners your going to need your heavy coat.

I sell boats for a living nowadays and so far this year is off the charts , really been crazy since November , several manufacturers are sold out on build slots for 2017 , this storm is going to make it quiet for a week or so when we had good momentum going.

Took 3 trucks down to Massachusetts yesterday to pick up 3 used boats we bought last week to get them home ahead of the storm , having a heck of a time keeping any pre owned inventory high class problem I know but really hopeful for more spring likec weather so I can get some of what I have sold delivered so I can get paid.

Temps are going to be warmer than expected. 5-8" now down from a foot. It's a day off for my wife and I. The only thing I dread is the snow thrower clogging up from wet, heavy stuff!

My snow thrower didn't bog down throwing the wet slushy stuff. Considering I paid him $20 he better not bog down!
