What a sense of humor for the weather controllers huh? No major snow for the mid-Atlantic all winter long and now all of it at one time.
Millions of families are bracing for a possible devastating nor’easter that could paralyze the east coast for a few days. Already totals snow totals are rising, and the first flake hasn’t hit the ground. Blizzard conditions are once again being called for New York and Boston while D.C, Baltimore, and Philadelphia will get significant levels.

The National Weather Service has issued the blizzard warning from northeast New Jersey to far southeast New York and southern Connecticut.
Winter storm warnings are also in place across other parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, including Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. In addition to the winter storm warning, a blizzard watch is in effect for portions of eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Storm totals of a foot or more are likely in a widespread swath of the Northeast region, which will bring travel to a standstill on roads and at airports. Strong winds could cause tree damage and power outages in the Northeast, as well.
