Mid Atlantic region to get pounded this weekend

Ok so I have a cycling friend who is a meteorologist with Accuweather and he says the initial estimates are that areas of Southern PA, MD, Northern VA are going to get 2-3 FEET....yes FEET of snow starting Friday afternoon.

This news is KILLING me because we are north of the main snowfall...but we should get 6"-10" here in the middle of PA. My second issue is I did something to my back last weekend and I can hardly move right now...can't touch my toes so strapping in let alone riding will be a challenge.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

I sure hope your friend is right. I'll be sure I get stuck at the resort if that is the case.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

My snow dance is paying off!! Seriously though, trying to decide where to head out to early Saturday morning. Snowshoe is about a 3hr 45min drive for me, Seven Springs is about 2. Guess I will have to wait and see where the storm tracks.

7 Springs should get something more than a foot....maybe a lot more depending on the storm track.

Not related to boarding, but my girl is driving from northern West Virginia to Colorado starting Saturday, does anyone know if that route will be affected by this storm?
