Heard last night that the Nor’easter is supposed to be today’s big story. Rain, Sleet, Snow even in the Mid-Atlantic today. Great! We’ll be driving from Michigan to New Jersey through Ohio and Pennslyvania today.. Should be at least interesting with the weather I guess.
Here is the Travel Advisory from weather.com

A coastal storm will develop rapidly early this morning and produce rush hour misery across the Northeast from Pennsylvania and New Jersey to New England. Energy from Hurricane Wilma may also energize this system slightly and make the results even worse. Wind gusts from 50 to 60 mph seem likely along the New England coast and over Long Island, with possibly higher gusts around Cape Cod and the Islands. Moderate coastal flooding is expected and a storm surge of 3 feet may occur in Boston. Rainfall is expected to be heavy, probably in the range of 2 to 4 inches in areas already saturated. Coastal flooding and heavy surf can also be anticipated. Accumulating snowfall, primarily above 1500 feet, seems likely from West Virginia into the Green Mountains of Vermont. Heavy wet snow on leaf-bearing trees any cause tree and power line damage and a resulting loss of power for some. Winter storm watches extend from West Virginia to New England for the higher elevations. Temperatures will be chilly so keep the heavy jackets handy.
