The weather models are aligning into agreement about another snowstorm on Valentines Day, with the potential for 6-10 inches of snow, with another storm coming in over the weekend, being dubbed the President's Day storm. Areas affected are to include Long Island, CT, RI, and MA. Like we really need this after the blizzard and today's ice storm???
More cleaning up ahead.

Ack, nooooo! That's terrible...I just got offered the chance to help ride a friends horses, and the ability to use the ring (I don't have one...) I'm going to send out so much positive energy towards sunshine the snow will be too afraid to show!

The European weather model is showing Thursday as a miss and that has ben the most accurate model so far this year. Hoping once again that it is accurate and we get spared. Please weather gods please let it miss us!

weather.gov and my-cast.com are my go-to sites for forecasts. Both are showing snow possible on Thursday, but nothing alarming. My-cast has a 20-30% chance of precipitation for several days after that.
I do agree that any significant amount of snow would be a b*tch, though. At a certain point (think winter 2010-2011) you just run out of places to put it all, even out here in the 'burbs.

Snow's fine. I don't like rain. It did bring down the snow cover a bit, and I can actually ride in my ring without worrying about burying my horse (as long as we avoid the bigger snow drifts!), but rain makes for heavy, snowballing snow, which my mare doesn't particularly like. Lots of groaning and sighing today when I made her trot in it!
Hopefully temps will stay mild now, so it won't freeze on top and become "unridable".
I tried the dirt roads, but they are either cement-hard, or covered in ice.
