East coast storm, Jan. 4

The weather people are talking about a bombogenesis or cyclone bomb for the east coast. Heaviest predicted snow amounts in New England at noon Jan. 3 seem to be just inland from Cape Cod - 12 to 16 - and 6 to 8 through eastern and central New England. Lesser amounts are predicted for western New England. I've been looking for the map coordinates to see whether it will be 40 degrees north, 70 degrees east, which in the past has given us some beauties. You know that in Boston they'll think it's the end of the world. And I expect talk about the Blizzard of '78.

    Bill I'm a bit younger than you but, like you, old enough to remember when this sort of thing was simply called...a snow storm

    From reading the MRG Single Chair weather blog, it seems if this thing tracks 50 miles further west (already shifted 50 miles west already already, closer to Cape Cod), this could potentially be a 2 foot event for VT.

    A cyclone bomb is a specific meteorological term for a rapidly intensifying storm. Nothing click bait about it.

    Moving too fast so accumulation totals will be lower than most nor-easters, or bombs.
    You ski because even if you don't do it well, it's still a blast....

    Would be quite interesting to be on the Southern tip of Nova Scotia when this storm comes ashore tomorrow night!!

    1968-69 models even the Cyclone bombs are big bucks! Don't know what engine that one has, doubt it's the big one. supposedly only ten remain with the 428

    Last sale that I could find for a fully restored Cale Yarborough edition in the Wood Brothers paint scheme went $55k. If one came up for auction now I would guess it over $100k, can't imagine it selling for anything less. Although I suppose it depends on the pedigree of the car

    they were dreadful in snow

    So far we have a over a foot and it's still a blizzard out there! Snow was falling so fast they had to shut down the chairlift at Bradford for around five minutes at so they could clear snow from the loading area.
