Oh joy, more snow

I’m ready for Spring.

AccuWeather – by Dan DePodwin

There will be no rest for the snow weary from the Midwest to East Coast as yet another quick moving system threatens to lay down a swath of several inches of snow from Minnesota to the Northeast Sunday night through Tuesday.

An onslaught of winter storms has buried much of the Northeast over the past few weeks. While this upcoming storm is not expected to be a historic event, it can snarl travel, resulting in more flight delays in a winter full of them already.  

A disturbance riding along the U.S./Canadian border is expected to first bring snow to Minnesota and Wisconsin Sunday night, with an icy mix from eastern South Dakota to Missouri and Illinois.

By Monday, winter weather should extend through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. A surge of milder air should allow precipitation to remain mainly rain south of the Ohio River.

The heaviest snow from this storm is expected to fall in Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan where some locations may receive a half foot. Chicago, Ill. should be hit hard by snow on during Monday.

Travel across the region Monday will be slowed by snow including I-39, I-75, I-80, I-90, and I-96.


The Northeast will feel the impacts of the storm Monday night and Tuesday. Shovels and plows will be needed again in many areas.

Flight delays are anticipated for many major hubs including Chicago, Ill., Detroit, Mich., Boston and the three major airports around New York City.

Interstates 76, 80, 81, 90, 95 and 99 will turn slick for a time on Tuesday.

The snow could once again force officials to delay or cancel school, adding to the growing list of school cancellations this winter.

While the danger of more roofs collapsing is already high following the rounds of snow across the Northeast, the impending snow will only further heighten the risk.

Slippery sidewalks will once again be a concern as the snow falls and with cold nights and milder days in the wake of the snow, icy patches will develop.

For those in search of warmth, a brief break from the snow and cold is in store for the middle and end of the week.

    1. Hi, #1
      Woke up in the middle of the nite in agony. Right tonsil (yes, I still have them LOL) inflamed. Hurts like H to swallow, even talk. No fever, not splotched in white (like tonsilitis), not swollen. Just agonizing all the way up into my ear. Think I got maybe an hour of sleep. Tough night. Give me a couple of days of warm salt gargle, etc. and I should be able to kick it. 🙂 Hurts too much to talk now, I’d only be able to listen. 🙁

        1. Thanks Paul, I truly appreciate it. I had toncilitis so many times growing up, those are all atomatic reflexes for me. Already doing them. 😉 Was always told I’d grow out of it. Well, at 55 and a half, I guess I’m not grown up enough. LOL

          2. some more remedies in case you haven’t tried them.
            Home remedies for Tonsillitis
            Gargling Solutions:

            Salt water is useful to kill some of the infection. Pus and fluid of throat would be washed out by gargling action. To swollen tonsillitis, gargling with warm salt water is one of the effective home remedies.
            Mix two tsp of onion juice or dried leaves of Mint with lukewarm water for gargling.
            Boil some portion of the bark of the babul tree (Acacia arabica) into water. Let it simmer for 20 minutes. Check whether decoction prepared fully or not and then let it cool. This solution speeds up the recovery and eases the tonsils pain.
            Mix one tsp fresh ginger juice, one tsp honey with two tsp of lukewarm water for gargling.
            Dig out the pulp of bitter tumbi (fruit). Then fill the kernel of the fruit with water and keep aside for few hours. Drink everyday a little of this water to cure tonsillitis.
            Simmer fenugreek seeds about 2 tbsp in half liter of water, let it cool. Then use it for several times a day.
            Mix mustard powder into a hot water. This solution rinses your throat therefore germs can get flushed out.

            Sipping Drinks:

            Take juice of 1 lemon, 4 tsp of honey and a pinch of salt with 1 glass of warm water throughout the day. It provides relief from the prickly pain at the back of the throat and makes swallowing easy.
            Mix carrot, beet and cucumber juice in the proportion of 3:1:1, as they are rich in Vitamins which help to fight from the infection.
            You can take any herbal tea such as chamomile, ginger or mint to give a soothing relief to the sore throat and from pain caused by the inflamed tonsil glands.
            Turmeric is such an antibiotic that is much effective to get rid of tonsillitis. Take a glass of warm milk with 1 tsp of turmeric powder then add a pinch of pepper powder. For best result consume it every night.
            Warm beverages give quick relieve to the pain of tonsillitis compared to cold ones. Drink warm vegetable and chicken soups.


            Mash some figs then mix them with honey. As dried figs have healing properties, it would help in healing tonsillitis.
            Cut lemon into two pieces. Put some salt and black pepper on one piece. By pressing with a knife penetrate salt-pepper into the lime. Then put it on heat to make it warm. Now lick this lemon slowly and squeez it until no juice remains in it.
            Boil about ten to twelve gram of Banafsha (Viola pilosa Blume) flowers in 40 to 45 ml of milk. Filter it, then it must be consumed hot for quick rel

          3. Geeze Angel, I hope you get to feelin` better soom EH. Yes Paul has some good home remedies there Angel. Worth a good try . 😉

        1. I am a 40’s child and when reached 5 before we went to school it was the fad at the time to have your T and As removed. There was nothing wrong with them at the time but that is what they did at the time.
          Till 2010 that was the only surgery I ever had.

          1. They pushed it in the 50’s, too. It was the popular thing, like having a hysterectomy and bottle feeding. My Dad had No faith or trust in Doctors and refused to allow it done to me. He caught a lot of flack from my Mom and her relatives for it. I never really had a problem with them until late Jr. High into High School. We discussed it (still getting heavy pressure from Doctors) and I made the choice that I didn’t want to have it done (at that point, I was a singer and I was afraid the surgery would affect my voice.) I’d rather go the “Natural” way and deal with it. People are shocked when I tell them I still have my tonsils. LOL

          2. Angel for the most part i don’t go to doctors, unless i have a broken bone or an issue that necessitates my seeing one in order to get a handle on the problem at hand. Once i know what it is I research it and diagnose my OWN NATURAL protocol, which means NO DRUGS. their are occasions when a pharmaceutical is necessary. That said when an antibiotic is required after using medicinal herbs, colloidal silver ant such like, it is possible to acquire amoxicillin etc. without a dr.’s approval. for instance, 500 mg fishmox is the same identical product as 500 mg. amoxicillin. just in a different container, and can be bought online.

          3. Thank you, Paul. Great info. 🙂 I’m going to have to write that, and your remedies, down and get supplies to have on hand.

    2. Oh boy #1, this snowy and cold winter is really hard to deal with, yes #1, I am gettin` too old for this winter stuff for sure.
      Yes, I probobly would rather have your warm temperatures any day #1. 🙂

  2. In Florida we had an influx of New Yorkers in the early 70s. Does anyone remember that Buffalo, NY had 46 straight days of snow?
