Northeast Expecting Blizzard


A major storm system from texas is making its way toward the Northeast. As much as 2 feet of snow is expected to cover the region in the blizzard condition. The storm will hit just after the anniversary of the 1978 blizzard. Although it is not yet clear whether it will be a record breaker, it is a rare storm system that will be in the memories of those who endured it.


The snow will start friday and will continue until sunday. Also in effect is a flood watch for almost all coastal areas north of new york city. This is a relief to business owners who say there ski resorts have taken a hit because of the unusually bare ground of the winter season. However it has caused panic as many people scramble for supplies as they expect the worst, as local power companies expect major power outages, and the state highway department expects nearly 85% of state roadways to be closed.


Warm whether has plagued many business in the northeast that depend on the snow fall for business. Even ski resorts that make there own snow say they have taken a beating because of the warm wet weather. While there demands for wintery weather are being met, they might look back and think they should've been careful what they wished for.
