I was one. Although as long as it didn't hit my house. If I was visiting someone, maybe.

Is this actually going to hit Pittsburgh or just Philly?

It's really too early to tell. Obviously Philly would be more vulnerable/likely because of it's location somewhat near the Atlantic. In any case, Pittsburgh would never experience an eye, because it would dissapate before it reached that far inland, but Da Burgh could definately experience some strong winds and lots of rain over a period of time, depending how fast the system was travelling and, of course, if it actually tavels that far west and how strong it remains. But like I said, it's too early for an accurate prediction. By Tuesday, y'all should know if it is going to impact the Pittsburgh at all and if so how much.

Editing here: shafnutz05 above is correct, it could be both, but in any case Philly would get worse than Pittsburgh.

unless they changed the forecast since this morning, Pittsburgh is expected to have 60 mph winds with gusts to 70.

But now they're saying there are two different scenarios

The rain

The snow

An intriguing side of this storm isn't tropical in nature at all pulled into the storm to change rain to heavy, wet snow in at least the higher terrain of West Virginia, western Virginia and even the mountains of northwestern North Carolina. Again, it's too early to focus on specifics, but a crippling snow event measured in feet is not out of the question for parts of West Virginia if the track is just right.

:shock:

If I see Jim Cantore doing a live spot from the bottom of Stowe at Seven Springs, I'd probably expect 3 ft of snow.

Well, at least that would take care of all of those fallen leaves I haven’t gotten around to raking yet.

I remember when Ike hit or whatever and Aliquippa was underwater... It was awesome.

There was a bank that was underwater on Green Garden Rd... Someone got underwater wielding equipment and robbed it :pop:

In hindsight I probably should have gotten up early and cut the grass one final time this year.

I cut my grass last night after work (first time home before 9 in like 3 weeks). Yard looks good. Probably will leave the mower ready for one last cut in about 2-3 weeks and be done.

I went through Irene last year and that was not fun. Looks like there won't be tornados during this storm at least.

If my map reading skills are right, that's what to expect at Tuesday at 8am.

I didn't realize that there was already a thread about the storm when I started this one. My mistake.
