    looks like the Mid Atlantic states are going to get their asses kicked in this weekend

    so here are some helpful blizzard survival tips
    http://www.theonion.com/graphic/blizzard-survival-tips-37853

    • Grocery stores will quickly sell out of food during a blizzard, so be sure to stock up on supplies several days before you came across this article.
    • If any of your pets go outside for any reason, leave them there. They belong to the snows now.
    • Smear the blood of a lamb upon your doorposts so that the great low-pressure system spares your family as it passes over your home.
    • Purchase a CB radio to maintain lines of communication with the other lunatics in your neighborhood.
    • Steer wildly when you hit that first patch of ice.
    • Stockpile flint and colored beads. These will be important for bartering in the After Times.
    • Prepare by reading Jack London’s “To Build A Fire,” which will teach you how to keep warm when there is no sun nor hint of sun, though the sky is empty of clouds. And yet there seems an intangible pall over the face of things, a subtle gloom that makes the day dark, and that is due to the absence of sun when day breaks cold and gray, exceedingly cold and gray.
    • Be one of those fucking people who clears out the whole shelf of bottled water at the store.
    • Keep frail young Frederick away from the windows, for he is consumptive, and a mere moment too long in the bluster could spell the end of his beautiful life.
    • Be aware that no matter what you do, sometimes you’re just going to be crushed by the sheer weight of the snow.
    • Criticize your mayor.

    Went to do my grocery shopping a little bit ago. They've been stocking all day, and still a lot of stuff was completely gone. Water isle, no cases of bottled water left at all. Plenty of gallon jugs though. Lol. Surprisingly the veggie section was completely emptied of the prepackaged greens. Either people went nuts for that or there was some kind of low key recall that I've not heard about yet. Sunday morning is the main restock for the store I go to, so bread and eggs and shit was plenty. Lol.

    26" inches was the final tally for where i'm at. spent a solid 6hrs shoveling my parents' driveway (very large gravel driveway).

    I didnt bother trying to drive anywhere. I just stayed in and played video games all day + the 2 days i got off work lol.
