Much Quieter. Little Chillier. More Snow, But Rumors Of Big Storm Likely False

Posted on

Whether you listen to Fleetwood Mac or Adele, you’ll hear something about rumors. Well that is the case with some of the hype that occurred last week with a potential “30 inch” or “feet of” snow event this weekend. Yes, parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will see snow and it should accumulate in some locations. But not too much is expected. Hype loses this time.
