Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, March 14, 2017

A Nor'easter is dumping snow and pushing winds up the U.S. East Coast -- the beginnings of a monster storm that has placed about 18 million people under a blizzard warning. So far, nearly 7,700 US flights have been canceled through Wednesday and thousands of schools have closed. Winter storm warnings and watches have been hoisted over a region stretching from Ohio and West Virginia into Maine. A blizzard warning -- cautioning that high winds will combine with snow for poor visibility -- was in effect Tuesday morning for parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, upstate New York and the six New England states.

We have a hard freeze warning for Wednesday night/Thursday morning. That will kill everything that has been blooming due to the warm weather.

As I mentioned on the Nooner the past two weekends we have had single digits with 25-30mph winds. You could do nothing outside without the chance of getting frost bite. I will take the foot of snow with the temps in the low 30s anyday of the week and next week this will be all forgotten and I will be spring skiing.

Hey Danni, did you get any damage from the storms last night? I have a friend in Broward, tree fell through his car.

About 8 inches here so far, with some good wind gusts. Occasionally, the houses across the street disappear behind a blowing cloud of snow.

The snow flakes are getting larger, so it may turn to sleet/rain soon, as forecast for this area.

It is cranking here in Maine right now. I have a 12 meeting and then I will take the back roads home. 295 or the turnpike will be a nightmare.

Enjoy your accurate forecasts because we don't need NOAA's National Weather Service anymore. We don't need no stinking satellites anymore. We don't need stinking government. Shut it all down. So we can build more tanks and nukes. And a wall.

After all we have the weather channel.

Good for you guys, I planted cabbages and lettuces yesterday. I have had tomatoes and peppers in the ground for a week. I have to cut grass today, about two acres, maybe put out the corn I started. There is an advantage living down here. You do not have to shovel sun shine.

"Hey Danni, did you get any damage from the storms last night?"

No we didn't have any damage. When I woke up this morning I saw I had a Weather Warning on my cell phone which was sent at 1:27 a.m., the warning said we were in danger of tornadoes at 2:00 a.m. but I was sound asleep then so that warning wouldn't have helped me much. Sorry about your friend's car.

"Enjoy your accurate forecasts because we don't need NOAA's National Weather Service anymore. We don't need no stinking satellites anymore. We don't need stinking government. Shut it all down. So we can build more tanks and nukes. And a wall."

And when there is a disaster don't count on FEMA either.

My girlfriend is on Long Island.

Not living up to the forecasts by my understanding. Significantly less snow than called for and mostly been freezing rain, no whiteout conditions ect.

It's a blizzard out there. About 8 inches of snow so far, with 18 to 24 inches predicted. They are now saying sleet/freezing rain may mix in, which could cut down on that total but would make the snow that is there a whole lot heavier to shovel.

So sorry. Be careful shoveling all that snow. It's exhausting work. But someone has to do it.

It will be at least 90 degrees and very sunny here in So CA today.

Might go to the beach and check out the California girls and work on my tan. It's exhausting work.

But, someone has to do it.

Last year we hardly had any snow, and this year hasn't been too bad--until now. When we get hit with a storm like this, you remember why so many Northeasterners retire to Florida.

This new cooler weather is going to eff up the blooms on my mango tree. From the looks of it, the tree was under the impression it was spring and now the flowers will fall off if it stays cold :/

Watching it come down and blow around like crazy here in Mass. My tulips were starting to pop up. Hope the snowblower starts.
