The snow from Nemo the Nor'easter is due to begin within an hour. (Actually, it will be a change of light rain to snow - just a drop in temperature.) Waiting for snow is always an odd sensation. Sound carries differently over snow. Even before the snow begins, I imagine that I can hear sounds from far away.
Thankfully, I live near Philadelphia, which is often near the dividing line between rain and snow. North of us they are expecting up to two feet of snow; the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island have ordered everyone off the road. But here in the Philadelphia area, it's business as usual.
Around here, tonight is expected to be just another night. Only with an inch or two of snow.
