Blizzard blasts Northeast with
snow, wind and bitter cold

CNN, by Lateef Mungin & Greg Botelho

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/3/2014 4:55:18 AM

Bitter cold. Below-zero. Blizzard conditions. Sorry, Northeast. But those are phrases you´ll be using a lot Friday amid a monster storm. And not just the Northeast, forecasters said. About one-third of the nation -- approximately 100 million people in 22 states -- is in the path this storm. But the Northeast will be hardest-hit, the National Weather Service said. "Heaviest snow will fall from central New York to the Massachusetts coast. Blizzard conditions are possible for eastern Long Island and the Massachusetts coast. Bitter cold will move into the Midwest and East following the storm," the Weather Service said. The

I checked the weather channel for my area after lunch yesterday and it said a 30% chance of precip. Guess what,there´s 3 inches on the ground and still falling.Plus it´s warmer than the forecast.No wonder they always say a weather person can´t be sued for a bad forecast.

The Weather Channel is a disgrace anyway for it´s promotion of climate change when it´s nothing but a theory.This ishow you get people to blindly accept something,like calling Obamacare healthcare reform.

Yep to all above. 2 degrees this morn with about a foot of the white stuff laying around. Funny, I didn´t see any of my neighbors running around on fire, no planes crashing into the ground, no giant insects eating their way into homes. Hmmm, just a normal winter day...

Instead of interviewing hyperventilating city dwellers who are in a panic because they can´t make the 2 block walk to Starbucks, they should come on out here and watch real folks reaction to winter.

Living in the city was easy back then, when all we had was an ice scraper for our car and a shovel for our driveway, but we managed just fine. During the night you could hear the city snow plows working hard and prayed they didn´t miss your street. If you lived in the country and owned a truck, you usually owned a plow and made sure your no plow neighbor´s snow was removed as well. We all knew what to do. We didn´t complain about the cold. It was winter.

76 today in my part of hated California, with crystal bright blue skies. Boring.

I spent a few winters in Illinois and Iowa back in my traveling days, and I miss it, a little. Watching all these panicky weasely weather dweebs makes me think I´m missing something cool and dramatic.

It´s winter. Stay warm, stay home, drink every sort of warm beverage, bring in the dogs and cats, and watch football for the next few days. Sounds pretty good to me. That´s what we did.

Here in NW CT, I definitively crown the Slate-colored Junco as the hardiest of the birds that frequent the boulder where I place the daily food for my feathered friends.

In zero-degree weather and amid a foot of snow, there are dozens of these little sparrow-sized creatures flitting about. Bluejays, sparrows and a few doves have made an occasional cameo appearance.

This morning here in Biloxi it was 31 degrees with a wind chill of 20. And some of my neighbors thought I was crazy when they saw my walking my dog wearing shorts and a light jacket. But, since I have lived in Anchorage in the past, I was kind of used to snow and cold. I mean, when you go to work one morning and the outside temp was -42, now you could call that cold.

Snow days are great for cooking with anything that presents itself. Made some great chicken soup and found a container of french onion dip not used for holidays so I threw that in too and it sort of looks like creamed chicken soup - but it tastes good. Had some left-over won ton wraps and made some spinach ravioli - today finish them up making crab rangoons because my son likes them. With Christmas lights still on it and bunch of Morse dvs, thought it was a great day.

This focus on normal seasonal weather as "extreme" and, yes, even naming storms, has gotten way out of normal. Too many people today need to get a REAL life and take care of their own business.

Weather channels need to show their personnel clinging to telephone poles for support in hurricanes, slipping and sliding on freeway overpasses in ice storms, and swaying with the snowy blasts of blizzard winds to give their viewers a little excitement.

The sun rises and sets every day as storms of various sizes circle the planet. If not broadcasting and exaggerating weather extremes, how else can weather channels justify their 24 hr. coverage (of the weather!).

What Obamacare Means for Your Taxes

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service.

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

People who live in some of the remotest areas of the country have electricity for the first time ever. Sixty-three homes in the LeChee community of the Navajo Nation, located just south of Page, Arizona, either have already been or will soon be given electricity as part of an ongoing project to bring power to the area. According to the AP, an estimated 15,000 homes in Navajo Nation don´t have electricity. Some prefer it this way, while others live so far away from power stations or each other that it would be "too expensive" to connect them to the grid. Expensive

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O.

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
