The whole northeastern part of the U.S. is expected to be hit with a snowstorm that has the potential to be one of the biggest blizzards on record.
DC is not expected to be hit directly by the storm but northeastern states such as New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts but we are expected to get some of the out lie of the storm in the form of rain.
Below are some reports of what affected cities are doing to prepare:
“Airlines began announcing the suspension of flights out of New York and Boston airports starting Friday night, as thousands of workers readied their plows, checked their stocks of salt and braced for what will most likely be a cold, wet weekend. Amtrak announced that it would suspend northbound service out of Penn Station in New York and southbound service out of Boston beginning early Friday afternoon.”- Nytimes.com
“Gas stations in parts of New York City and New Jersey had long lines Thursday night, according to local residents, a signal, perhaps, that many were taking storm warnings”.- Nytimes.com
Make sure you stock up, this is going to be one heck of a storm.
