I live right outside of Manhattan NYC, so far so good here. Snow is starting to accumulate but nothing too serious yet. Tonight is when we are expecting the worst

stay safe everyone. Take your time shoveling and don't over do it

Be careful and stay safe everyone! It's even bad in the northwestern part of Pennsylvania!

Do not go out unless you have to! *Offers blankets and hot cocoa for all*

I grew up in CT and at the age of 19 joined the military and saw the world while doing other things I can't speak of. I spent about 6 months retracing my steps after I got out and came back home to CT. Wouldn't trade this weather for the rest of the world.

Blizzard warning in effect. Travel ban in place. Being in my line of work, the warning doesn't scare me and I'm exempt from the travel ban. I'm all set for whatever may or may not come because we all know two meteorologists are never in agreement. Nor are they reliable. And right now, my bug out bag is jealous of my truck.

Thanks for keeping not only the USA safe but everywhere.

I agree I would hate living in place without my +30 summers and -40
Winters. It's the wide variety ad weather that I love Saskatchewan for. I like the winter more then summer.

Do a large water change tonight.



If you have generators start them up and make sure they run! Get enough gas to last you a few days.



If you don't have a generator get yourself some battery powered air pumps to oxygenate the water, very important!!



If you can't get a battery powered air pump agitate the water with a wooden spoon.





Float water bottles with hot water in them in the aquarium. Will help keep the temp. up



wrap blankets around your tanks, it will help keep the heat in.







good luck guys, and hopefully all of our fish make it through just fine

Im glad i waited to set my tank up til next weekend 😊

We are expect to get considerably less up here in Vt though.
