Spawn of Son of Snowpocalypse

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Clearly iPhone 4S is not new enough. MUST BUY NEW MODEL TO BE SAFE FROM INCOMING WEATHER.


Hmm - I have a 4S and got the oh-so-wonderful 4 AM wakeup message. Does carrier matter? (I have Verizon.)

I probably made some really amazing impression on some person in a position of power somewhere and got added to the priority list.

I'm such a scamp!

Thanks Andy! Didn't know that about these strong storms tracking more N and W then modeled. Wouldn't the models incorporate this eventually?

So will this be relatively heavy snow, given how close to freezing the temperature might be at times?

Kurt, you have my sympathy. Nothing makes me as giddy as a snow day!

yes, this will be one of those that probably puts a few guys in the hospital for heart attacks and finger detachments. i'd clear the snow thursday morning and maybe once again during the day, just to ease exertion levels. it'll turn more powdery after noon, which is when the worst blowing and drifting will occur.

p.s. any of you with travel plans the day after christmas may want to have a back-up. there's a strong signal for another major winter storm somewhere in the midwest on the 26th, give or take a day.

A co-worker had it go off in a meeting today. HOLY shit was that crazy loud. Do they really need that to go off a whole day before a snow storm in Wisconsin. Jeebus, we're getting soft.

I'm by no means a weather person, but it looks to me like it's tracking north. Plus, they've updated their WunderMaps.

I have an iPhone 4S and iOS 6 with all the notifications turned on, and I didn't get an alert.

My diagnosis: somebody screwed up somewhere.

For what it's worth, we're supposed to be getting a major snow storm tonight. Just wanted to let you know since you and anyone else know who didn't get the alert.

Apparently I'm drunk and didn't realize it. That makes no sense.
