Paralyzing storm

Well, it's a first for me. The Weather Channel website has predicted that the major snow storm headed my way is not simply a "disruptive snowfall", as is forecast for areas west of here. No, it is a "paralyzing" storm.

I have visions of the Blizzard of '03 in my head. In '03 we got over 30" of snow over a 2 day span, with drifts of over 6'. It took 3 days for my youngest son and I to shovel out. Deadeye and oldest son were stranded in South Carolina because all highways into and out of Maryland were closed. It was, in a word, epic.

Will this storm also turn out to be 'epic'? Stay tuned to this Bat channel.
