Spring Nor'easter on the way

Forecasters Predict Potential 'Nor'easter Bomb'

The calendar might say it's spring, but people in the Northeast could be dealing with yet another winter storm in just a few days.

The New York Daily News reports there's the potential for a "Nor'easter bomb" come Tuesday and Wednesday. Essentially, the National Weather Service says that "bomb" would develop quickly and dump more than a foot of snow on already hard-hit areas.

A meteorologist told The Star-Ledger: "This is going to be a very strong storm, there's no question about that." While another meteorologist at the National Weather Service told the paper: "This has the potential to be a very significant storm. ... but it is too soon to get any more focused than that."

WPVI took a look at the chance of the storm making a huge impact on land. "Right now, the possibility of it coming closer to the coast to give a heavy swath of plowable snow along I-95 - right now it looks like a 40 percent chance."

At this point, the storm is difficult to forecast since it's still in its developing stages. KYW-TV points out there's also the chance all that snow, and even rain, could simply fall over the Atlantic Ocean - leaving the Northeast out of the woods.

Forecasters also predict the storm to bring strong winds and possible flooding along the Atlantic coast.

Try living in Oswego, NY right at the bottom of Lake Ontario, sometimes it takes till July for the last snow mounds piled up in parking lots to melt.

I grew up near there, and I remember those winters. However, most of the snow has been further south this year, and those of us in the mid-Atlantic are sick of plow drivers who just can't get the job done, and stores with no salt for 3 weeks now. It's not the amount, it's the inability to deal with it. My kids have had 13 snow days so far. 13. I never, ever, had that many snow days in 5 winters in NY.

I think we were better off with Uncle Whethbee , if any remembers him. He didn't have all of this equipment, and was usually always correct with what he perdicted.

We'll see, but I sure hope my friends on the East coast don't get hit yet again. The whole country has my sympathy, naturally, but having spent 15 years in the Catskills, I can't help but feel for them.

The Catskills are nice compared to the Adirondacks.

Time to quote Bill Murray from the movie "Groundhog Day":

I don't think........that this winter..........is EVER........going to end."
