Northeast Braces for 'Catastrophic' Snowstorm that Walloped South
by Breitbart News 12 Feb 2014, 3:10 PM PDT

A devastating nor'easter snowstorm that walloped the South on Tuesday and left at least eight dead and hundreds of thousands without power is headed to the Northeast, putting much of the region under a winter storm warning until Thursday. The snowstorm is expected to hit Washington, D.C. at around 8 p.m. EST and continue to head north.

What to expect in the Northeast on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning:

Meteorologists expect that "Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia will see 4-8 inches of snow starting Wednesday night and all day Thursday" from Winter Storm Pax while "New York and Boston can expect 3-6 inches." Areas north of those cities may "see a foot or more of snow before the nasty front rolls off the coast of Maine on Friday."

#WEATHER ALERT: 6"-12" inches of snow expected for DC area overnight. Full list of closures at http://t.co/jNDnV2l1PS

From FEMA:

    Today, President Obama declared an emergency for all counties in the State of South Carolina, at the request of Governor Nikki Haley, authorizing FEMA to support the state in its efforts to respond to the storm. The declaration comes in addition to the President’s Emergency Declaration for 91 counties in the State of Georgia yesterday, at the request of Governor Nathan Deal.

    FEMA has deployed an Incident Management Assistance Team to the Georgia Emergency Operations Center in Atlanta, along with liaisons to the state emergency operations centers in Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia to facilitate close coordination with the states. FEMA has activated its Regional Response Coordination Centers in Atlanta and Philadelphia, and continues to be in close contact with state, tribal and local partners in impacted and potentially impacted areas and stands ready to support its partners, if requested and needed.

    FEMA has also established an Incident Support Base in Augusta, Georgia where additional federal teams are on the ground. Commodities including generators, meals, water, blankets, and cots are being moved to that location. At all times, FEMA maintains commodities, including millions of liters of water, millions of meals and hundreds of thousands of blankets strategically located at distribution centers throughout the United States and its territories, including Atlanta, Ga. and Frederick, Md., if needed and requested.

TONS of pictures at the link

and nope this isn't Global Warming.... weather patterns are identical to 1977 when they said we were going into a little ice age - the north pole was warm then, too, and the NE was being slammed with that thing called winter!

Of course it is global warming.  After all, global warming causes global cooling.

Ah hell, it's just climate change.  Man made of course.

Parts of my state have received 10" of snow and it's still falling. Nothing here, although we may get a dusting later today as we're on the western fringe of the storm (we still have several inches of crusty snow on the ground). People around here are at their wits' end with this winter, which has consisted of bitter cold and constant snow. Enough!

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
