Snow Storm Forecast to Wallop East Coast Takes Shape Over Plains

Alexander Smith
COMMENTSThe Weather Channel. "It is going to snow hard and it's going to be hard for road crews to keep up so driving will be difficult."

East Coast braces for multiple feet of snow
Roth added that the weather would likely impact air travel.

D.C. authorities said the city has 14 new dump trucks ready to be deployed to salt and plow major streets, along with six new trucks for residential streets, NBC Washington reported.

If 2 feet of snow fall in the nation's capital, it will be the city's second-biggest snowstorm ever: The largest was a 1922 storm that produced 28 inches.

Parts of Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina were forecast for at least 1 foot of snow, and at least 6 inches was set to fall north up the I-95 corridor through New York City and Philadelphia.

More than 3 inches was also expected in parts of Kentucky, Tennessee, and southern parts of Indiana and Ohio.

Despite the storm being days away, a woman had to be rescued by by firefighters after driving her car into a frozen river near Ashland City, Tennessee.

Although the real weather was not set to start until Friday, the early stages of the system had begun to dump localized snow over parts of the central Plains on Wednesday night, according to The Weather Channel.

It's going to skirt around me but I'm going to get "lake affect" snow from the north. CNN had a big thing on it today - "historic proportions" (snow).

DC had ... "A relatively light dusting left the metropolitan area a slippery mess along mostly untreated roads."

and they could potentially get 2 feet.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
