    Are you in the path of the "historic" East Coast/New England-area winter storm?

    Please stay smart & safe, first & foremost.

    But if you can catch some pics of the "fun", post them! If you are smoking/grilling in it, post your hardcore griller pics in our Inclement Weather thread! You will get bonus points!

    YES!!! Love this thread. I'd love to see some pics of that. My brother lives in the concrete jungle (Manhattan). I'm waiting on pics from him too!!

      I am. I'm in Manhattan right now. There is not much snow and nothing to show. Tomorrow is supposed to be the bad day and I will be staying home.

        I am actually getting out of town now while the getting is good. I have heard that there may be some issues as I go across New Jersey.

      JUST missing it. Snowing in Northern VA, sticking in the grassy area but the roads are fine. DURN!
      Last year I started a tradition of grilling just before, during or just after snowstorms. Got one in early this year. Flank steak, tenderloin for #1 and NY strip for me. Apologies for the bad pic, but all I have. Was VERY windy, and I had trouble keeping my kettle temp up - first time I;ve had that problem. Click image for larger version

        Just started up the "Blizzard BBQ" in the PBC -- two chickens and a rack of ribs. Not only do I live just north of Boston but we're on the "island" of Nahant, connected to the mainland by a causeway. We're not expecting the heavy stuff until the overnight, but they're closing the state roads later tonight. I've got food, water, beer, snacks, oil lamps and a butane burner (from the boat), plenty of charcoal for both the Primo and PBC, a Weber gasser, and a propane lobster pot/turkey fryer. I'll get a pic once it really starts to snow.

          Stay safe Carol! It sounds like you have your priorities in order, all the necessities! Are you in the 24-36" zone? Keep that path shoveled to the Primo & PBC!! Can't wait to see your pics.

        North and east of me, we have a couple of inches, supposed to get a couple more tonight. You would think it was the end of the world? Learn how to drive on snow people...

          We're expecting 18" to 24", with the possibility of more if it stalls. Classic winter Nor'easter. High winds, coastal flooding...we know the drill.

            I remember as a kid in MI getting snowfalls like that, and when it means no school, and the fact that we had 2 snowmobiles growing up, it was AWESOME! The last 15 years+ we get excited if they're calling for 8-10". Sadly most of our snowfalls are just 1-3" every few days. Enough to make the roads slippery and make you wipe off your car, but hardly exciting. West coast of MI gets the lake effect, and they get pummeled.

          Our forecast - about 30 miles west of Philly - went from 14-24" to 8-12" to 4-8" and now I'll be surprised if we get the 4". We often seem to be the line between storm and flurries. Still, I started my pork shoulder picnic about noon today and it's going strong in the light snow.

            Did the media create the 'historic' storm because it is a slow news day?

            No because they want to sell ratings. Notice how now they are naming winter storms. Like a storm that dumps 3 inches is worth naming. The Weather Channel is a Joke.

            There's a huge expense when snow falls like that, road crews, emergency responders, police, and the sensationalizing may not be entirely warranted but it does sell. It does good in that it makes people prepare, which is good for the families out there, but also causes the Home Depots, gas stations, and grocery stores to get a sudden boom in business. "Everyone" benefits.

          I will be smoking tomorrow about 30 minutes south of boston. Going to do a nice breakfast fatty in the morning and then some beefback ribs for dinner. My wife told me that I am like the postman and asked if there is anything I won't smoke in. My thinking is that if I don't have to go to work tomorrow I might as well smoke between blowing snow. I will definitely get a couple pics.

                  I'm in philly and totally bummed by the lack of anything. City shut down yesterday. NOTHING was open. It's disapointing.

                    25" of snow in Nahant, MA. Wind gusts here on the coast were pretty impressive at 30 - 40mph. Digging out today.
