Default Alert to members in OH, KY, WV, PA, VA, and NY

Looks like that storm that hit the midwest real bad is only going to get worse by the time it gets closer to these states. This storm dumped several inches of snow in a matter of a few hours, and might be responsible for a few deaths. I know NY and NJ just had a bad snowstorm, which is responsible for several deaths, too. This is going to be about the same type of storm, if not worse.

I live in Buffalo, I'm ready. We had a horrible storm last October, so snowstorms aren't really a big deal after this:

What about us Canadian members? Going to have around 8" of snow here, and freezing rain.

Snow isn't responsible for deaths, dumb drivers are responsible for deaths.

I don't know if this is the same storm that is hitting you guys. All I know is ANY amount of snow in this short amount of time is bad, especially for people on the road at the time. People in Canada should keep an eye out for this one, too. I'm sure whatever snow we get that goes north into Canada is a lot worse up there.

Stay safe up there.

I'm in Cleveland, about 50 feet from the lake (seriously, 30 seconds for me to walk to the drop off to the shore) and we have had no snow at my house at all since last winter, so I doubt we will get hit.

I don't know, man, Cleveland gets hit pretty hard sometimes due to lake effect snow.

Where about in Cleveland do you live? Most of the family on my moms side lives up there. Know where Lorain and Willard avenues are?
