    I'm going with January 12. But not sure how you want to define "snow", I'd want to see 1 to 2 inches that actually stick, not a dusting or a snow/rain mix. :)

    I won't need a snowblower for this. Ground is still very warm, it will be above freezing when most of the snow falls. As the current briefing says "Slushy accumulation mainly on untreated surfaces and grassy areas.".

    Why would I waste time with a snowblower for that? I don't start thinking about the snowblower until it piles up over a foot. ;)

    A new map; arrival times. I wonder how Vineland, Easton and Dover get a sneak preview?

    Looks like this might put a damper on our trip to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. NYC also expecting about 5".
