Time to clean out my car and charge my batteries.. It could be a long weekend.
Are you ready for another long winter in the mid-atlantic and northeast ? This photo is from February 2010 when we received two Nor’easters in four days, each dumping 3 feet of snow.
The potential snowstorm could start by early Saturday morning and last through the day, that is if it even develops. Either way, I will be keeping a close eye on the weather to see what my chances are at chasing the fall colors covered in our first snow. The possiblity of up to 3″ is forecasted for my area, but if I travel to the north (25-60miles) I could potentially see snow totals near 8″+ , but with less foliage on the trees. I’m going to stay further south and hope for a fresh snow on the colors of autumn during peak conditions right in my area.. You do not need to travel far to find great photo ops sometimes.
