Unhappy Snowstorm in East coast! Hope echarchans are all safe!

To all echarchans on the East coast, hope you are all safe. Don't see a lot of you here! Try not to travel and stay indoors!

My brother got stuck in a snowstorm somewhere in North Carolina. His flight last night was cancelled, but he managed to get to another airport and should be arriving later tonight or early tomorrow morning.

We are officially snowed in.

In our area (west of DC) we had between 22 to 24 inches of snow.

Spend the entired day yesterday and the day before shovelling the damn white stuff. But the neighbourhood looked beautiful and lively, especailly yesterday with everyone out shovelling their driveways.

Will post some pictures later on.

State of emergency like all the other states in the path of the storm.

Woke up this morning and saw the road lined with lots of white mounds. They were cars all buried completely under snow. I had to kick my way thro' a wall of 4 feet snow which had got accumulated right in front of my stairs.

Damn man... it's bad. Whole city is covered with this thick white blanket. It's almost beautiful!!

Desi,

all themajor roads are good. Should not have any problem driving.

Just got back from Circuit City on Rt. 7. Drive slowly though. Most places the roads are reduced to 1 to 2 lane roads especially on the back roads.

SG
